Have you ever met someone and realized almost instantly you were meant to be friends? That's exactly how I felt when I met Stacy, the gorgeous woman in the blue/grey dress in this photo, and her amazing family. As soon as we met, we connected as though we'd known each other for years, which was exactly what I needed when we moved to Arizona. Now, when I travel back there for weddings/portrait sessions, they're always on my list to stop by and visit. But this time I was super excited because I actually got to photograph them! Then to make it even better, they were willing to wake up super early to do a sunrise session. Sunrise is my very favorite time to shoot as the morning colors and light are absolutely stunning to capture. We topped off my excitement by going to one of my favorite fields and y'all, that sunrise was probably one of the best ever. Which was so appropriate for the Robert family, as they're one of those families that just radiate joy and light up every situation they walk into. It was a truly beautiful morning and looking back on it still makes me smile!
I'm so so grateful I met Stacy in a bible study several years ago, and even more grateful I got to preserve some of these precious moments of her family forever. This is definitely one for the books! So keep scrolling to see just a few of my very favorites from their Arizona Sunrise Family Session:
