M & N // Phoenix
Mallory and Nick have been clients of mine since the very beginning of my business, I mean way back in the Kinzie Tweter Photography stages (the first of many business names). So when Mallory asked if they could fly me out to shoot their long awaited maternity session I was so excited, happy, and honored. These two were some of my very first clients way back in Italy and I feel so lucky to have worked with them so many times! They are a blast to capture every single time. From a couples session at the base of the Dolomites to a homecoming from deployment session in Aviano, I know how long they have waited and hoped for this pregnancy and it felt so special to fly out to Phoenix to capture such a special time. These two have been working on a baby since before I met them. Through ectopic pregnancies, miscarriages, and an adoption that fell through these two have remained each others rocks and it's so evident they are just meant to be. You can quite literally feel their love when you're around them and knowing their story just makes you love them more. Their energy is infectious, they are so fun, a little dark humored, and very in love with each other. This baby is getting the best parents and family ever, their dogs are going to make amazing big brothers too.
We started the day with a session at Cave Creek Park complete with outfit changes and 100+ weather. After we headed back to their house for some in home photos, and take note of their gorgeous nursery they painted it themselves with some family help. The constellations on the walls are so gorgeous and I loved that it was unique. We even squeezed in some milk bath shots in their garden tub before we ended the day shooting in their super cute neighborhood in Avondale. We actually took all these sunset photos in the middle of the roundabout, but you actually wouldn't know it that's how cute their subdivision is!
