Sunset sessions are usually meant for color but I couldn’t help myself but fall in love with this photo in Black and White.   A true moment of Mother and Daughter, the love that ties them.  These two will share so much in their lives, Mama has so much to teach her and will be able to relate to her every experience as the oldest sibling.

Meet Bryann and Angel, they are born cousins but are growing up as brothers.  They are sweet, gentle and Bryann (the older brother) definitely loves his little Angel. 

Oh, lets not forget how handsome these two are, Mama is going to be fighting off the ladies when they get older.

Sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to get little ones to cooperate including drawing in the dirt. Miss Maleena had spent the day with her Grandpa and she was ready to run around and not take any photos.  However we let her be a two year old and ended up with some beautiful shots.  Mom, Dad and I were patient and tried talking her through a few and as it seems she played her “only child” card: I do what I want when I want. 

I am an only child and well I can relate, as well as my daughter only a few months older than Maleena and is the exact same way.  But no worries if there is a will there is a way. 

This family wanted a desert location in Gila River at Sundown and this is the first place that came to mind.  The mountains in the back are called “Aji Mountain” and from what I can remember are apart of the O’odham creation story.  I thought it was very fitting as this family is just beginning.  A beautiful family for a stunning location.

Little Miss Hannah. As I said before she LoVES her mommy. She is the baby of the family but is one tough, risk taker. She climbs up and down that stool all by herself. She is a sweet girl and always smiling for me however just like any other toddler she doesn’t sit still. I think she was being a little camera shy.

Jacob, likes skeletons, pirates and trains. He loves to make the train crash or derail you know typical boy stuff. However he is very organized, keeps all his toys in zip lock bags or specific bins so he knows where things are. How about that concept? A parents dream.  He had fun telling me all about his toys and we had a good game of catch with his Pirate Puppy.

I have a Mini Session special going on in February called, “One Moment”. Its suppose to be relaxed, no pose, just natural day of photos at your house or an event or somewhere fun. 
I initially went to the Sandersons to catch a few moments between the youngest two siblings, Jacob and Hannah. However they are run on their own time and well caught mostly independent play which is fun and a few of Hannah and her Mama, adorable.
Hannah loves her mama so much she tells her so, literally every 2 minutes in the sweetest way.  Hannah parents keep telling me Hannah is a rough girl and walks around with a scowl on her face most of the time. However she seems to give me a few smiles when I am there and its pretty awesome.  However Hannahs mom has figured out this baby girl just needs her 12 hours of sleep and she is happy as can be.
The Sandersons are so much fun, thanks a billion for letting me come hang out with you guys for a little while hope you enjoy the photos.

Had a great time with this little guy, Jayden. Boy, he is fast and tough! He LOVES to play catch me and tickle tickle and did I say he was fast?  Had both his mom and me running after him.  Even trying to bribe him with sweet didn’t slow this guy down. But we caught him.

Baby Ava was born last Monday a week early and was just meant to be such a tiny and petite girl.  Weighing in at 5 pounds 6 ounces, her cry however is full force and she is very vocal. As most brand new babies do, she sleeps and sleeps except when I went to photograph her she did everything but sleep.  She opened her eyes and was looking around taking in her new world. Congrats Mama Drea she is a beauty and those dimples will get her in some trouble I am sure of it. Welcome to the world Baby Ava!
