The Olbinskis | Lifestyle

This is an annual tradition. 

Every year, we sneak away with this amazing family and focus on friendship, changing leaves, laughter, food, drinks, and just slowing life down for a few days. The Olbinski Family is a family that is super dear to our hearts and friends for life at this point. We have found such friendship, support and encouragement in life with these people, there's just no simple way to express how thankful we are to the Lord for allowing us to know them.

Cheesy? Sure. But it's so, so true.

We snapped their family photos while we had the chance. And who wouldn't make the time to snap these photos in this background?? It was breathtakingly beautiful in Flagstaff and our time with them was cherished.

We are looking forward to next year when we can get away with this clan, and we truly hope no matter where life takes us, that we always carve out time to do this.

Mother's Day Collaboration with Carte Blanche | Lifestyle

"She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings."

We were so honored to have been asked to collaborate with Carte Blanche for a touchingly sweet Mother's Day shoot. I (Jess) had a special privilege of being IN some of these photos with our sweetest littlest girl too, which made it a really special time for us. 

We loved this idea. We love to honor people, especially hard working mamas who deserve being treated like princesses and doing fun photo shoots for no reason at all. Check out a few from our time with some of the mamas and their kiddos. 

Thank you so much Carte Blanche! Randi, you are a gem and anything you want to collaborate on, we are always IN. Thank you to Sonora Handmade for providing the lovely decor in the background. Such amazing and beautiful work they do!

The Arauz Family | Newborn

We love the Arauz family! Recently Kim and Jose had their third baby, a little boy named Elliot. We've really loved watching their family grow, and they are just about as sweet as families come. We were honored to spend an afternoon photographing them in such a sacred time and space, and never take for granted that people allow us in like they do. It's pretty special.

Be blessed Arauz family! Welcome to the world little one.

The McNeal Family | Lifestyle

We couldn't love how these photos turned out more! Getting to know this family made this afternoon seriously fun. It was one of those shoots where you leave pinching yourself wondering if this is REALLY your job. They did everything right. They looked awesome, they trusted us, and they enjoyed one another! We could tell that they love to be together and was so obvious in our time together, which made this family Lifestyle session very refreshing!

Check out the McNeal family! We promise you'll leave smiling!
