Seven Magic Mountains Anniversary Session | Jessica + Andy


Jessica and Andy were visiting Las Vegas from Scottsdale, AZ recently.  Jessica runs a blog about ethical, sustainable, and colorful fashion called Sustainable Rainbow and she just knew she wanted to get some photos at the colorful Seven Magic Mountains art installation!  This awesome outdoor art exhibit is by Ugo Rondinone and will be on display for free to the public at least until the end of this year, so I'd suggest checking it out soon if you can! Check out the website for all the details HERE

We met at sunrise and had a great time! Jessica's dress matched perfectly with the colorful sculptures and was so much fun to photograph.  Check out a few of my favorites! 

PS. Congrats Jessica + Andy on your pregnancy and upcoming arrival of your baby girl! XX 

Family Friday | 50th Wedding Anniversary


We celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary this past Sunday and although our family may have recently gone through and is still currently going through some rough times, it was a day to celebrate.  It was a day to not only honor the love of two people but a time to look back on their legacy and reminisce on all their accomplishments, their travels, their hard work and determination.  It was a time to look back and really see all the lives they've touched and all the people who've shaped their lives and who's lives they've help shape too.  Fifty years of marriage is no small feat. Yes, they've had their ups and downs but they've always chosen to take on this roller coaster together! 

Our evening consisted of an early family dinner at Texas de Brazil and then when we were all stuffed beyond measure, we went to my sister's house for cake and champagne! Ok, I was the only drinking the champagne, but I'm ok with that! And in case you were wondering, my parents had Crown on the rocks and my sister chose her signature vodka tonic.  My kiddos dedicated and performed the song, La Bamba, for their grandparents.  Diego played guitar and Elysse sang the song.  They'd been practicing off and on for weeks and they did such a good job! Afterwards, we played them a slideshow my sister and I worked on all week! Going through 50 years of photos and trying to narrow them down, was hard.  In the end, we created what we thought was a pretty good trip down memory lane! We ended our evening with a little bit of kareoke, because is it even a party without some off key sing-alongs!

Las Vegas Desert Anniversary Session Tasia + Joel


A few weeks ago we met up with Tasia and Joel for their 6 year wedding anniversary photo shoot.  What makes this session so special is that we were there 6 years ago when these two lovebirds came to Vegas from Wisconsin to tie the knot! We were there when Tasia stepped into her amazing show-stopping red rhinestone stilettos.  We hung out with their families as we took a tour along the strip and stopped for photos along the way.  And, we've been here ever since as they make their yearly anniversary trip back to Vegas!

We have long since become friends with these two and enjoy seeing them each year and grabbing lunch or dinner with them.  This year, they (read: Tasia) decided it was time to get some new photos together and we're so happy they stepped in front of our cameras again!  

T+J: Happy Anniversary! Can't wait to see you again next year! XO
