The Allan Family | Tami Proffitt Photography

You probably remember this family if you've followed my blog for the past three years, every year their session is funny and full of energy.  This year, they drove up to Pinetop for a session and it was everything fun.  Including me dipping my toes in the cold water for pictures, but it was so worth it.

Their little girl just turned 3, which gave me an extra reason to have a little more fun with her. 
Every single one of their kids have the most gorgeous blue eyes…ah, I love them!
During a little couple photography, they were photobombed by this cutie. And that means photo opportunity!
OUTTAKES:

My number one favorite outtake EVER!  Completely classic picture…blurry or not.

The Henkel Girls | Queen Creek Family Photographer

Just when I thought it wasn't too long ago that I photographed these girls, they got to the session and I couldn't believe how grown up they look.  

Our session together was definitely memorable for us.  At the bottom of this post there are a couple favorite outtakes of them looking for creepy crawlers.  I was thinking these girls might not be brave with the little creatures that can be in this field, and I was wrong.  They made their dad proud braving it even when there were big spider webs right next to them.  I was impressed….they can get dirty  without complaining.  We laughed, squirmed annnnnd I may have squealed once or twice thinking something was on me.  

My clients know that during a session with me, I tend to talk a lot…yep, a little A.D.D. side effect I have.  During this session I kept saying what gorgeous girls they've grown up to be…probably sounded a tad like the creepy photographer.  Or maybe creepy when I posing with one of the girls to show the other where I wanted her.  When I apologized for giving the vibe of a creepy photographer scouting girls at the mall…the oldest sister laughed and said it would only be creepy if they didn't know me.  
I think that's a compliment since I first photographed them when they were little.  

They are amazing girls and if the mosquitos weren't so bad, I could've talked with them into the night with all my questions with what they've been up to and advice for my kids going to through the same school curriculum they went through.  But the best part is, they weren't in any hurry or annoyed to talk in the front yard with me and their mom.  



The Montei Family | Chandler Family Photographer

After shooting at this location for over 4 years, my client scheduled her family session to use in the White Mountain area.  Her family is one of the original sheep ranchers and used these structures to stay in when watching the sheep in the meadow below.  I love that they now have these historical buildings, her family built, in her portraits.  

They  have three gorgeous children, that yes…also seems to grow up overnight since the last time I photographed them.  Their oldest is almost 10…WHAT?  And their twins…look like they could be just as old as their brother.  

All of them I absolutely LOVE and sadly, before we knew it was getting insanely cold and we had minutes for catching up until we all needed to warm up.

Meet the Montei family and their three gorgeous blonde children.
