The "Super" Martins

My sister Sarah and her husband Alex have one heck of a family! They have not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but 5 kids: Jessica, Nathan, Noah, Aaron & Annaka. I have to give props to my amazing sister for all that she does to keep this family functioning (well and her husband too). Not only does she have 5 kids, but she home-schools them! On top of that she is going to nursing school, AND manages to have dinner ready every night. I don't know how she does it, but she is one amazing woman! And above all, they have fun together as a family. You will see what I mean from these photos. I had such a blast capturing their goofiness! Meet the Super Martins!!!

Check out these dance moves :)

This little one takes my breath away!

This picture so perfectly sums up the Martins...I love it!

A quiet moment for mom & dad...aren't they beautiful?!

The Fritz Family :)

I don't know if you are ready for this family. I may be a tad biased because they happen to be related to me...but seriously this family is amazing. My brother Tom & his wife Jen are an inspiration to me. Their are such loving, involved parents, and have two of the sweetest little girls: Calla & Olive. Spend an afternoon with these girls and you would never guess that they are 2 & 4. Their vocabulary is like that of a little old lady, and they just crack me up! They love to practice their Irish dancing, and above all rock their own unique fashion style. When left up to them, that usually includes butterfly wings, ballet skirts, cowgirl boots or rain boots. Talk about the perfect photo opp! Enjoy :)

This is priceless

Calla is so interested in nature. She can tell you the name of almost any flower you see :)

A true blessing

Seriously...look at them!

The Wisconsin Photo Marathon

I have been in Wisconsin for the past week doing photo shoots, and get to enjoy one more week here. It has been such a blessing getting a break from the Arizona heat, having some new photo locations, and meeting new Wisconsin friends. Keep on the look out for my Wisconsin shoots :)

Melissa...a high school senior (Wisconsin Shoot)

Melissa is going to be a high school senior this year in Wisconsin. She has such a bright personality, and a face that is so naturally beautiful in front of the camera. We had such a fun afternoon together going from location to location to get some of these shots. Thanks for a great time Melissa!!!

She looks like she's from a fairytale :)

One of my favs of the day

Look at those eyes!

Stephanie Krystal...aka my Bestie :)

Steph and I have been best friends since we were 8 years old. We meet in dance class, and danced all the way through high school together. She now lives in Cabo San Lucas where she dances professionally with a company. We both planned our trips back to Wisconsin at the same time, and I had a blast hanging out with her and of course getting her in front of my camera. I was so blessed to have the opportunity to combine the art of photography and the art of dance; two things that I hold dear to my heart. I hope that you enjoy her beautiful art. Love you Bestie!

This is my beautiful best friend

She finally got her "Scorpion" :)
Definitely worth touching the bird poo to get this shot :)


I love everything about this photo
