Despite the nerves the location was a blessing... easy to navigate and locations were abundant.  Surely my other east valley families will benefit from this new location to my shot list....  Thank you Carrie for challenging me to this site!  Congratulations on Hunters graduation..... stay well and continue to take good care of your boys!

Prince Joseph http://poeticip.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/8/prince-joseph Joseph is a name of strength....a name that is fun to say and it was absolutely fun to capture the personality behind the name.... this little one showed us all just how strong he is with his determination to eat, eat, and eat some more!  Following after a strong mama it makes perfect sense....this adorable little was a joy to photograph....Congratulations Lora!

3rd times a charm! http://poeticip.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/2/3rd-times-a-charm Married once in the 70's, and then again in the 80's, and finally now in 2017 you would think this makes for one heck of a country love son!  Aside from the 40+ years of time that has passed, their devotion to one another proves time just can't keep them apart.  It was my pleasure to capture this reunion... re marriage... final marriage!  Congratulations Tom and Joni!

A Great Place to Say I Do http://poeticip.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/11/a-great-place-to-say-i-do I believe we would all say (my family that is) that having a wedding in grandpa's backyard is a GREAT idea!  We all grew up playing up and down the patio, swimming in the super deep diving pool (even jumping off the roof in secret), eating macaroni and cheese than grandma whipped up (while she fed steak to Daisy the dog! Ha!)....  it was a true honor and blessing to be able to capture my cousin Michelle and her husband Ron's wedding this past saturday....  Not sure if i've ever seen my cousin so happy.... and beautiful... truly stunning... Congratulations to you two and your kiddos!

Congratulations Angela and Luis... sweet sweet family.

Salas Family 2015 http://poeticip.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/12/salas-family-2015 While we did have to be quite creative in our shooting considering little Enzo just loveeeed his mommy and daddy so much... just wouldn't let go!  Not to worry... a little 'play catch' with grape fruits makes all the difference....  and she just happens to give a great cut (if your in the need for a hair stylist).

19 and Counting! http://poeticip.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/11/19-and-counting

I set out to document a party of 19...and half of those were under age 18...and lets just say, "fun creative and a lot of energy" are the appropriate words to describe the day...we were successful in capturing all we set out to do.... and felt mighty proud we did it all under 2 hours.  Whoo Hoo!  Rink Family Fun!

One Fit Mommy... http://poeticip.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/11/one-fit-mommy

I have been photographing this family for several years and have watched as they have transitioned from a family of 2 to now a family of 4.  Being a mommy myself I can fully appreciate the demands of motherhood and the changes ones body undergoes.  Despite baby weight gain this mommy, Erica, has been fully committed to reclaiming her health and physique with her method using Shakeology....and it has worked!  Was a wonderful treat to photograph One Fit Mommy....and her husband and beautiful daughters.... A Calderon Christmas.... thanks ya'll...exited to see what 2016 has in store for you!

Cahill Family Fun http://poeticip.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/10/cahill-family-fun  

UPDATE... all edited and ready to view....  somehow bubbles just brings out the best in everyone....  blessed to have been able to document this family several times over... thanks again Cahill Family!

It was a welcomed return to Saguaro Ranch for this family.... 8 year ago this family started at their wedding ceremony.... and we captured their first addition Kiera shortly after.... several years later, we returned there for family photos.... weather cleared up perfectly and gave us a wonderful backdrop.... the kids were great, excited, and full of spirit... and parents the same...  truly a treasure to document families from their earliest stages and beyond...  congrats!   (more to come... only got to the solo shots first!)
