This session of Payson AZ Family Photos marks the 6th year of one of my favorite swaps ever. Since 2017 Mikaela and I have done each other’s family photos and it’s one of my favorite Fall traditions. Even though we’ve moved three hours away we knew that we had to keep this swap tradition up! […]
I was extra excited for these Red Knolls Family Photos. Why? Ricky and Dahana are some of my past Prickly Pear VIP wedding clients!! I first met them in 2018 for their vintage pie cafe inspired engagement session. Late that year we met up for their gorgeous Phoenix wedding. (If you’ve been around a while […]
Sara got to break in the New Year for me as my first session of 2022 for her Grad Photos. She just graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University and it was so fun to talk about college, English majors, and Payson life together. We went to the Houston Mesa Rim (or the Mini Rim as […]
During the Burnett Family Session, we made sure to take some time to get photos for Elaina as this is her senior year. And, did you know this is the second time I’ve been able to do some Payson AZ Senior Photos at the Bluff?! It’s one of my favorite places ever and lends so […]

Jami grew up in this area and when she brought her menfolk home for a visit from back east, she knew she needed some Payson AZ family photos! Jami and I went to the same college together, but this was the first time I got to meet Brad and the boys. These five are so […]
What do you do when you plan Mogollon Rim family photos and then you get to the final road to your destination and in the past week the Forest Service has closed that road for the foreseeable future?! You improvise! This is exactly what happened to us here. The location was scouted and picked and […]
Missy was an absolute delight to work with for her Payson AZ Senior Photos! She was full of joyful smiles, bubbly energy, and total beauty! She was looking for a location a little different from the normal forest or Green Valley Park photos, but wanted an area that still showed off the beauty of where […]
When it comes to Mt Graham family photos, or any family photos for that matter, I love a location with a view. Being able to still be in the desert, but be high enough to get a view of the valley and the Safford mountains, this spot is a favorite. I went to college with […]
