Thank God for sisters & sunsets! {AZ FUN Photography}

8 Feb

What do you do when you have a photography project due in two days and your mind is blank?

You panic. ¬†jkjk ūüėČ ¬†But thank GOODNESS for willing sisters and gorrrgeous sunsets, or panicking is EXACTLY what I would¬†have been doing! ¬†As we were all aflutter about picking an outfit and sticking on some makeup, all I was worried about was losing light!!! ¬†Mental freak outs are never fun. ¬†Thankfully we caught this sunset lighting JUST in the nick of time, and man-oh-man was it fantastic! ¬†With the sun behind my sister it provided some grain yet there was still some light on her face. ¬†But when I turned around and had the sun behind ME, ohhhgoodlordyabove, I just about died.

Thanks leetle sis for being game and so willing, you’re simply stunning and I’m SO grateful for you (and on a side-note, you were a huge hit in class as well ūüėČ ¬†I’m so lucky to have such a good-lookin sibling)

Hope you all have a fabulous rest of the week!

Love, Savanna


AAAnd the winning photo folks.

The end!

Here is an adorable family I shot a while ago but totally spaced out and forgot to blog (I need to work on my “keeping up” skills!) ¬†We had such a blast. ¬†It was beautiful weather and the sun was shining. ¬†One of my favorite things to do is just follow a family around and capture their interactions with each other, their little expressions, their quirks, and everything in between. ¬†I took my best shot at encapsulating all the love within this little family, but it was hard, because there was just . SO . much!

It was SUCH a joy to photograph you Dye’s, thank you for letting me capture your sweet family, lots of love!


Trying out a new effect, I LOVE how this one captures all the beautiful, rich colors!

During the shoot I couldn’t stop going crazy about these littles eyes! ¬†They are THE deepest blue and oh so big. ¬†Mommy calls them her “blueberries”, SO fitting!

Blueberries!!!  Just precious.

I canNOT get enough of these curls!!!  Everything about this little girl is sunny and happy.  She puts a smile on anyones face.

And so that was the end to a lovely day.

May you have a blessed rest of the week, and thanks for checking in!

This family was such fun to shoot and oh so cooperative (always a favorite “shoot quality” of mine). ¬†Everyone was in great spirits and were all so flexible to trying new poses or positionings. ¬†Thank you all for being such a great family! ¬†I enjoyed every minute of shooting you (although shooting someone never sounds nice, I mean it in the kindest way ūüôā

I hope you all had a safe, happy, and Merry Merry Christmas! ¬†My family decided to do a low key Christmas this year, and I would have disputed it had I been a bit younger. ¬†But man, life is crazy and hectic and fast. ¬†Sometimes it’s good to just take a breather (and stay in your pj’s all day ;). ¬†Twas a fantastic day, and I am SO beyond grateful for all of the blessings, big and small, that God has graced my life with. ¬†To Him be all the glory and may we all reflect on the true meaning of this joyous season.

Love, Savanna

Here’s to an AMAZING 2012. ¬†Happy New Year!!!

Hello all! ¬†I hope this post finds you well rested from Thanksgiving, ready for the weekend, and full from eating WAAAY too much (yea, that’s the understatement of the century!). ¬†Anyways, it’s back to business, and I am so thankful for work, school, and shoots to keep me busy.

I recently shot the Beck family, whom I’ve known for about a bazillion years it seems. ¬†They were a joy to shoot and I was so thankful for the opportunity. ¬†My, how these kids have grown, and Mrs. B, you just get more and more stunning by the day. ¬†Love and blessings this holiday season.


Maris | the beautiful (and talented!) :AZ Headshot Photography:

7 Oct

I was recently blessed with being able to photograph Maris, the most recent “Elle Woods” (YES folks, you heard right!) ¬†Of Broadway Palm’s Legally Blonde. ¬†She was such a joy and I couldn’t believe how much my camera loved her! ¬†It took simply no effort at all to capture her quirky, cute, fun personality. ¬†My mom and I also recently saw her last show, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. ¬†WHAT an amazing experience (we spent most of the show in hysterics)! ¬†Since we had only seen the ready-for-headshots Maris, it was fun to witness her amazing theatrical side. ¬†And just let me say… this girl has skill! ¬†Legally Blonde will no doubt blow my socks off! ¬†F.Y.I, it runs Oct. 6th – Nov. 12th at Broadway Palms in Mesa (hint hint). ¬†Break a leg Maris, we’re your new biggest fans!

(last one : personal fave ūüėČ she’s a hoot!)

Reese Witherspoon eat your heart out!

Have a blessed weekend!

I got to shoot these lovely ladies on a beautiful Sunday in the “country”, well. . .in the city ūüėČ ¬†This was honestly one of my FAVORITE locations. ¬†A red barn, rusty metal everywhere, big tires, beautiful trees, and a chicken coop – what more could I ask for? ¬†We had so much fun traipsing around and tryin’ out a billion poses! ¬†The hearts behind these faces are even prettier I can tell ya. ¬†Thanks girls for being willing to “act out” my crazy ideas & making it look so easy. ¬†Love you girls! ¬†Savanna ‚̧

This pic didn’t turn out exactly how I envisioned, but I LOVE it! ¬†For sure one of my faves from the day.

ALSO one of my favorites!!!!! ¬†I love the blurriness ‚̧

WORK IT gurl!!!

Love this pic. ¬†Don’t EVER doubt the power of “Patty-Cake”, it works magic!

And lastly, one of us being…us

I recently had the pleasure of shooting this BEYOND BEAUTIFUL family!  It was practically perfect weather (for AZ that is), everyone was so happy & compliant, I simply had a blast.

I hope the rest of your week goes smoothly.
