I'm horrified to discover I never blogged this session! This is one of my very favorite all-time sessions! I met Kelsey of Whispering Daisy Photography and her two (now three!!) little ones in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona during the wildflower season for a stunning sunset mommy and us session. Kelsey is such a beautiful authentic spirit and I loved capturing the easy love she shares with her babies.
Lets just say snow in our part of Arizona is a rare occurrence. Extremely rare. And 6-8 INCHES of snow? Insanity.
I knew as the snow poured from the sky New Years Eve day that I had to do something special in all that amazing pure white stuff. And what could be more pure than a mama nursing her babe? So I threw out a quick model call and got quite the response. So Perfect Chance Photography and I decided what the hey? lets make this extra fun! So we teamed up to photography some sweet mamas and their adorable babies in the beautiful winter wonderland on New Years Day. It was an epic start to our year of capturing Motherhood!
(Now for the concerned observer I will let you know this IS Arizona - so while there may indeed have been 6 inches of snow on the ground it was a about 54 degrees while we were shooting - I wasn't even wearing a coat! All babies were snug and warm at mama's breast!)
The lovely Jackie and her beautiful babies met me at Red Rock Crossing for some sweet pictures in the wildflowers. It was a beautiful day, and we had a wonderful time capturing sweet memories.
When I first moved back to Arizona one of the very first sessions I did was Kandra's little boy Davey. It was the beginning of a wonderful relationship - over the past 2 years I've done Kandra's maternity, newborn photos of sweet Braelynn, family photos, mommy and me, and Brae's first birthday cake smash.
When Kandra called and told me that Brae was weaning and that she wanted to me capture her very last nursing session I said "absolutely!" So we met at Red Rock Crossing on a beautiful evening to capture some sweet pics of this bittersweet moment for Kandra and Brae.
I love every single image.
