The C Twins

Newborn Nova

Newborn Gracie

This beautiful baby was photographed at exactly 2 weeks old and it was on Valentines Day… AND IT WAS SNOWING IN LAS VEGAS! This will be something her momma will never forget! Also pictured, we have 3 generations of strong women! They have moved all the way across the country from New York to the desert with a few stops in between. I hope they like it here as much as I do.

Hidden Gems in Las Vegas

I was recently asked to collaborate on a blog post for Redfin about hidden gems in Las Vegas! I immediately knew what I was going to write about. And as they say, “save the best for last!” If you’d like to take a look at my contribution as well as many others, just use the links provided below!

Las Vegas is known for its world-class nightlife, casinos, and entertainment. From watching the Bellagio water show to catching a Las Vegas Raiders game at Allegiant Stadium, there is no shortage of fun things to do. However, if you find yourself looking for something new and exciting and want to venture off the beaten path, we’ve got you covered. Redfin reached out to locals, including us, to share our favorite hidden gems in Las Vegas. So whether you’re already living in Las Vegas, considering renting an apartment in Paradise, NV, or are just a tourist for the week, venture away from the strip and try these exciting places. As the saying goes, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” so you’ll want to keep these places a secret. Check out Hidden Gems in Las Vegas: Sin City’s Best Kept Secrets.


I was lucky enough to photograph big bro as a newborn and also did his 1st year cake smash. You might remember him from the pics with the adorable cactus theme. Well, momma brought me another baby! YAY! He was just the cutest, posing perfectly and then even waking up to play with me a little bit before they went home for the day. I swear they make the cutest kids! Having 2 boys brings it’s challenges but man, they sure melt my momma heart!

After the Storm comes a Rainbow

I have known this beautiful mommy since 2005, I believe… I photographed her first pregnancy and newborn and now I have had the honor of documenting her family growing once again!

Baby Caiden is a Rainbow Baby. A rainbow baby signifies the blessing of a healthy baby born after a loss. Momma didn’t announce her pregnancy until baby was here safe and sound and he was also a SURPRISE GENDER! Nine whole months of not knowing and not posting! That takes some serious discipline!

In this set of images, you will notice the baby’s red string bracelet. Then you will see that the whole family has them!

Spiritual Meaning To The Red String Bracelet:

Red has been a color used throughout history to ward off negative energies and is a symbol of protection. It is worn as a representation of protection, faith, good luck, strength, and connection.

This Rainbow Baby was born in the same month of the family’s loss, exactly one year later. I can’t help but get the feeling of karmic connection and welcoming. Look at baby Caiden holding mom’s ring finger! 😍

Now you will see a smitten big sister loving on her new baby bro. So cute!

Finally, a few more of my favorites from the gallery. There were so many to choose from making it hard to decide but this session and this family were perfection.

Las Vegas Outdoor Cowboy Cupcake Smash

It’s always hard for me to believe when an entire year has gone by but my clients keep reminding me when I get an email saying it’s time for a cake smash! I remember this little guy’s newborn session… He was one of my wide awake babies! LOL! He did not want to miss a thing!

For his cake smash, we were considering a farm animal/ barnyard theme but the weather was so amazing and they had not gotten any family photos recently so we decided to do a family sesh with a little cupcake smash at the end.

Finding the perfect places to photograph outdoor family sessions in the Las Vegas desert can be challenging. Especially in the fall, when many families are longing for the beautiful changing leaves that most other states take for granted. But when I stumbled across this hidden jewel, while hiking with a friend, I immediately knew this place would be amazing for pictures!
