Two baby pygmy goats joined a loving 4-H family – and we were beyond blessed to enjoy their sweet and playful company. They were so tiny and we were surprised at how light they were to hold….. almost like they were full of air, not nearly as dense in weight as a puppy would be of the same size. As Chad was shooting one of them kept jumping up on his back as light as a feather barely feeling his little hooves. One of them decided to have a quick nap during the shoot and his little buddy just laid down and hung out, waiting for him to wake up again. These kids are going to have so much fun with their new goats and you can tell just how much they love them already. If you love animals like we do, contact us for your unique photoshoot today!
I had the rare opportunity of a lifetime to photograph an awesome military family on the tarmac Apache helicopters. It was just as awesome as you’re thinking it was. 🙂 The O Family was SO fun to spend time with. First we photographed on the tarmac, then we moved to the hangar. The kids had such fun climbing around and putting on Dad’s HUD ! Then, we drove out to the desert where we could see the famous Picacho Peak that they love. The sun was so warm and amazing and the kids had fun playing amongst the brush. When it got dark they invited us over to their house for their annual Christmas Tree Bonfire, with hot dogs and s’mores! I took more photos there capturing the dancing embers and sticky faces. SUCH A GREAT TIME!! It’s an honor to get to know families with longer sessions like this. Thank you for serving our country!
The sweet C Family wanted to update their family photo for their ‘family photo wall’ and to send Christmas greetings overseas to relatives. We’ve had some moody rainy weather this month, so the third Sunday Afternoon attempt – was the charm and so worth the wait! This family has a great sense of joy and humor and the relationship between brother and sister shines through. Love them!
The B family wanted to update their family photos as they have a sweet new baby girl – well, she grew fast – more like toddler now! 😀 Home is where your family is comfortable – where you can relax and be yourselves. Use what you’ve got! Pool? Swings? Trampoline? We believe in capturing the authentic personality of your family – not staging or faking it. Let them PLAY! Be themselves. That’s where true photography sparks start flying. Check out a few images from our session together.
Chad had the blessing of photographing the G Family with their latest addition – baby Liam Max! What a sweetie pie he is!! His brother and sisters you can tell are going to take great care of him! Here are a few photos from this on-location home session.
My wife Karen’s volunteer role at our kids’ co-op is the annual Branches Biltmore Yearbook Director. All year long she snaps away all the classes and events, manages the online store, designs the yearbook, receives the box loads of books and distributes them to the families. She LOVES doing this – and I know how much time she puts into it!! It was really a very nice compliment that she received from Picaboo Yearbooks themselves – they asked her to write a feature blog post to inspire other homeschool groups thinking about having their own yearbooks! My small role is that I’ll come in, set up the studio lighting + backdrop and take a portrait of every student present on photo day specifically for insertion into the yearbook. Then of course, is the big, rambunctious, crowd photo full of excited kids and their parents. ;D Branches Homeschool Community is a blessing to hundreds of families across the Valley. If you’re a homeschool family and are looking for a co-op we recommend checking them out. There’s usually a wait list……. don’t wait too long.

Last summer we had the honor and privilege of helping AFHE with their student ID cards at the 2015 AFHE Homeschool Convention. We took professional student portraits of each student for free and coordinated sending the files to AFHE for their student ID fulfillment. They have asked us to come back for this year’s convention July 15-16, 2016! If you haven’t heard of AFHE – they are Arizona Families for Home Education. They are a non-profit organization whose purpose is to inspire, promote, preserve and support all homeschooling families in Arizona. This year the convention theme is: BE STRONG & COURAGEOUS Awesome line up of exhibitors, speakers and workshops as always! If you’re curious about homeschooling for high school or special needs they have a mini-conference on Thursday night, July 14th. It was different being an exhibitor….. rather than just a homeschool parent wandering around the plethora of incredible vendor booths and laden with bags of information……. my wife did rather miss out on, well all….. of the speakers. I think this year we’ll consider buying the mp3’s. However, on the flip side it was AWESOME just chatting with moms and dads about their homeschooling experiences – things they saw on […]
