The Chatterton Family | Downtown Phoenix Family Session

The photography community here in Arizona is something truly special. It's so incredible to see the amount of support within this community and how many of us truly believe in Community Over Competition. I am a part of a few Facebook groups for photographers in the Phoenix area where we can talk about equipment, ask for advice, get involved with workshops, share referrals and talk about the ins and outs of the photography business.

This pretty mama also happens to be a part of these groups! Tara is a photographer herself over at Tara Nichole Photo and posted looking for someone to capture some new family photos for her. After chatting a bit we found out our babies are only a few months apart and since we both needed family photos done we traded services! It was such a blast hanging with her sweet family in downtown Phoenix. It's always an honor working with another photographer and I'm so glad we were able to connect and get new photos! I'm so glad she suggested doing her session downtown, my style typically has me shooting in the desert or a lush, green area so it was great to break out of my comfort zone and get creative. Although, I just couldn't help myself with the green bushes in the photo below! Scroll down to see some of my favorites!

And here's my favorite from my family's session with Tara!
