The Balistrieri Family

I almost always shoot's just my thing. Unless of course I have a fun indoor idea or the weather forces me to. With much of my Wisconsin trip being rainy & cold, I didn't have much of a choice. Let me just say, that the Balistrieri family was as much fun photographing indoors as they were outdoors!! They were so open to my ideas, and had some of their own & I loved how they turned out. The boys, Maddox & Dominic, are big into reading so we decided to head into Barnes & Noble for a few shots, followed by Milwaukee Street Traders Coffee Shop. About that time, the rain let up enough to allow us to get some priceless fall shots in this beautiful grove. I loved working with you guys! Your love & beauty shine through your photos. Thanks for sharing it with all of us :)

I loved their sense of adventure & discovery...they are straight-up boys!

Of course Maddox had to jump right in the puddle...I mean, wouldn't you if you were two?

This is simply priceless. They could not wait to see what lies ahead on the trail.

Another priceless Balistrieri moment :)

They are also big movie-goers so when they saw this poster hanging up..I had to have them reenact it. So funny :)

The Garbinskis-One on the Way

I can't even tell you how much fun I had with these two on their maternity shoot! Audra & Justin were so open to my crazy ideas, and were so much fun to work with. Their vintage style & fun-loving personalities were just a joy to capture. They are anxiously awaiting their bundle of joy, who is supposed to come on Christmas day. Not only is Audra going to have the baby without any pain meds...she is also having the baby at home. She is my hero! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do :)

We used the numbers on the dryers to show the expected due date :)

Check out their adorable nursery

These next four are some of my favorites. We had to stop at the grocery store for some "pregnant snacks" & of course get some frozen yogurt :)

I love how intently Justin is reading about breast-feeding ;)

We used pink & blue balloons since they don't know what they are having yet. How fun!

Megan Jewell-2010 Senior :)

Megan is a senior at Marcos De Niza high school...home of the Padres! She wanted senior photos that were "different", which of course I couldn't wait to give her. Who wants the same old boring studio shots?! No thanks! We decided to head to Downtown Chandler to see what we could find. Hope you enjoy these fun spots as much as we did! Thanks for a great shoot Megan :)

I know you're not supposed to play on the train tracks...but you can't pass up this photo opp ;)

Danger?! Perfect...let's use it!

The flower she got at Young Life Camp...I love the innocence portrayed here.
