This little princess has been a Priceless Reflections by Melissa client since she was just a few days old. I’ve had the pleasure of watching her grow and the honor of documenting her life through portraits for her family. On this day, she was real trooper and full of laughs, giggles, and that batting eyelashes look that every little girl seems to master to get what she she wants.

Recognize her from the top of the Smugmug site where you view your images after the session? She’s growing up!

As Mom to two boys, I can relate to that incredible bond between mothers and sons, and this session really rocked my socks because I got to focus on their relationship. No distractions, no other STUFF, just mom, son, and me… along with some seriously killer light.

That’s not to say it was all serious and deep – we have too much fun for that!

Mom’s got a heartbreaker on her hands. Oh, those eyes!

Piece of really cool but totally useless trivia: Mom attended college with my husband in Carbondale. How cool is that?  Let’s all bust out in a chorus of, “It’s a Small World!”

Photographing this family is always a treat – whether in Cincinnati – or here in Scottsdale!  I love it when my clients from Ohio end up vacationing in Arizona, and call me for photos!  I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Caleb and Campbell for quite some time now — and with every session, I just love them more and more!  (Plus it helps that their parents are really AWESOME too!)

I photographed the twins in Old Towne Scottsdale and then we went to the Sugar Bowl (haven’t been? I highly recommend it!)…. for some ice cream and of course, more photos!

While not exactly in Phoenix, I’ve found a new favorite place to hang out and have fun: Tempe Marketplace (http://www.tempemarketplace.com)
The big outdoor market is full of great restaurants, loads of off-the-chain shopping, and entertainment.
Be sure to hit Slices (http://slicespizzajoint.com) and Mojo Yogurt (http://www.mojoyogurt.com) for yumminess, then head over to Dave & Buster’s or the Marketplace 16, home of the largest movie screen in Arizona.

A few weekends ago I photographed a lovely Bat Mitzvah at Temple Emanuel in Tempe, and followed the party to the Kiwanis Indoor Wave Pool – talk about a FAB place to celebrate! All of the kids  enjoyed swimming and games of tug-of-war while grown up family and friends had time to sit down and catch up.  The best part about a pool party in Arizona — the weather!  A gorgeous day – sunny and 70`temps made this day a joy, from the wee hours of the morning, til the partying was done!

If you know of someone in the Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale area planning their Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah, be sure to tell them about Priceless Reflections by Melissa at 623.239.2437.

“Where’d she go?”

“Has anyone seen Melissa?”

“Hello… hello… hello… ::echo fades into the distance::”

That’s me. MIA. Missing in action. Gone. Absent from the blog. I’m so sorry!! It’s just that life and work got hectic and something had to give. Couldn’t be family. Couldn’t be friends. Couldn’t be clients. Couldn’t be the holidays themselves. That left the poor blog.

My New Year’s Resolution?  You’ll be seeing a lot more of me in 2010! (now, is that twenty-ten or two thousand ten…. the things we have to ponder!)

What do you get when you take a family of 16 from all over the United States, mix them with a venue that’s off-the-chain gorgeous (The Phoenician, in Scottsdale), and top it with a session full of laughs? You get this:

Sometimes you can’t go wrong.  Take a gorgeous, sunny, bright Phoenix day, add in the mix a fun-loving, beautiful family, and what do you get??  (Ok, don’t guess, I’ll tell ya)  You get the most amazing photos of a family that truly eminates love and happiness.  What else can I say??  LOVED this session that we shot in downtown Phoenix near Cooperstown and Copper Square.

We could not have asked for a more perfect morning to shoot this session – it was actually overcast (hard to believe here in the Valley of  the Sun!)… weather was beautiful, and look at how adorable these two sisters are!

I shot this session at the DC Ranch Market Street area …and really loved it!  I’ll definitely be heading back to Scottsdale to shoot here… so many possibilities!

Without further adieu…meet this morning’s beautiful sisters:

Ah… I love my job!  I recently had the pleasure of shooting these two adorable siblings.  They were SO cute – little Sienna was the most well behaved girl I think I’ve ever met.  (Including my own four mini-me’s…).  She followed directions wonderfully and did whatever we asked her to do!  And her 6 month old smushable little baby brother…… six months of total preciousness!  Smiles, smiles, and more smiles!  (Oh yeah, mom and dad were pretty cool, too!)  Enjoy these few previews while I’m working on putting up more recent sessions…
