A few weeks ago I met up with the adorable Woodward family at Scottsdale Civic Center to take some family photos for them.  This family was so sweet and the kids were so well behaved.  They were an absolute pleasure to photograph and work with!  They even brought along their dog and baby bunny for some of the photos and I think we got some great photographs of the entire family!

How cute is the Hadley Family?!?!  As you can tell from the Christmas tree behind them these we’re taken way back when for their holiday portraits.  I actually know this adorable family because Ed was my swim coach when I swam for Scottsdale Aquatics Club when I was a junior and senior in high school nearly 10 years ago! Wow how time flies!  Anyways, Stephanie and Ed are also good friends with Julie and Dan who you might remember from this post and Julie was kind enough to recommend me to them.  I met up with the Hadley’s at DC Ranch Marketplace, one of my favorite places to shoot, and we got some fun photos of the entire family!

I can’t believe that Baby D is already 1!!! Where did the past year go?!  I’m seriously concerned about the rate at which babies grow in to toddlers and kids!  At least Baby D is really excited to be turning 1!  You probably remember this cute little guy from his newborn and six month sessions and since he’s all over my website.  Seriously, how cute is he?!  I absolutely love photographing him and am a little sad that this is the last of our scheduled Baby Steps sessions.  He has such an amazing temperament and adorable smile and apparently lots of clapping makes him amazingly happy, which means amazingly cute photos!  And cute photos meant I had a hard time narrowing down which photos to show you since they were all just so stinking adorable!  I met up with D and his fam at the Phoenix Zoo to capture his big milestone of turning 1!  His mom even brought an adorable cake for him to smash in to, which I loved.  This little guy is so close to walking and we got some really cute standing photos of him!  I’m sure he’s going to be running any day now.  I haven’t been to the Phoenix Zoo in ages and we didn’t really see many animals but we did find some really fun places for great photos!

Drew barely let me get a photo of his cake with the candle lit before he dove right for the flame!  Luckily his mom was close by!  This kid does not shy away from sugar either!  Love that he wasn’t scared to get messy!!

Happy 1st birthday, Baby D!  So glad I was able to capture your first year!!!

Speaking of first year photos, I created a first year album (like this one) with all of my favorite photos of Baby D’s first year sessions so check back soon for some photos of it!!  I’m currently waiting for the UPS man to drop it off on my door step as we speak!

Oh blogland, you’ll be so proud of me.  I’m almost done blogging all my holiday portrait sessions!!  That’s right, only 3 more to go and I’m all caught up (on the holiday sessions at least!).  And I’ve been consistent about blogging this week!  Yay!!  And in case you’re wondering, yes, I am giving myself a big pat on the back!

Anyways, on to the next adorable family that I photographed as Jennifer Bowen‘s associate back at the end of November.  I met up with this family at their beautiful home near the base of Pinnacle Peak Mountain and we utilized their gorgeous property to get some really adorable photos.

At the beginning of December the Sokol family booked me as an associate of Jennifer Bowen‘s to take their family holiday portraits.  We met up at the Marriott at Desert Ridge for a quick mini session and I think we got some really cute photos of the family!

Ryan was one of the calmest and politest 3 year olds I think I’ve ever photographed!  And seriously, who could resist that adorable smile and cute sweater vest!?!!

You may remember this adorable family from Lily’s newborn session all the way back in June of 2009 and from their 2009 holiday portrait session!  I think Lily’s newborn session was one of the very first newborn sessions I ever did so I’m so thankful that they’ve kept coming back to me for more photos!!  It’s been so fun to see Lily grow from a little newborn in to a sweet 6-month old and now in to a very energetic 18 month old!  And when I say energetic, I mean very energetic!  This little girl loves to run (like most 18 month olds) so getting her to sit for some family photos took some work but I think we got some cute ones!  Plus Lily is extremely adorable so all the candids I got of her were well worth all the extra exercise I got that day!

I think I had asked Lily where her belly was and instead of pointing she decided to show me!  How cute!!

Well I’m slowly making my way through blogging holiday portrait sessions.  Up next…the George Family.  This cute little family were referred to me by my good friend Julie.  You might remember her and her adorable family from this post and this post plus you’ll be seeing them on the blog again shortly since Baby D just celebrated his 1st birthday!  Anyways, back to the George Family.  It was so fun to finally meet them since I’ve heard their names from Julie in the past and Austin actually works with two of our friends!  Small world!  We met up at Tumbleweed Park in Chandler to get some fun family portraits of them for the holidays.  We did encounter a little resistance from the little guy at the beginning of the session since it turns out he had a major ear infection that day (poor guy!) but in the end I think we got some absolutely adorable family photos!

LOVE!!

I’ve found lately that the 1 year old crowd really enjoys clapping and when others talk about clapping!  I’m going to have to remember that for future personal use!
