Lopez Fall/Christmas|Sadorus Family Photographer

Had a great session with this beautiful family.  It may not have been super cold and you can tell that it is not winter but why not take advantage of the moment and get some great Christmas pictures out of the session. Who doesn’t need pictures for those Christmas cards and look at that golden fall light!!  Love it all.  I feel this is what Christmas looks like in Arizona!

Emily and Erin

I had so much fun with these girls on our shoot!  They have so much life and love in them and the love they have for each other is so great to witness. Sisters are such a blessing, it can be one of the greatest friendships ever and you can see this in these two.

Just look at these beautiful young ladies. I can’t believe how grown they are, dad Jimmy is going to have his work cut out for him trying to keep the boys away!

One more Sneak Peak for the blog today.  These guys are troopers, it was 90 degrees out with 90% humidity and the kiddos were tired but they did amazing.  Despite trying to go fast to get out of the heat and avoid meltdowns we got some pretty good shots.  I mean really they made it pretty easy for me.  Little Miss Kai didn’t want to smile after the first couple minutes but I still got some good faces from her!!

Grandma and Grandpa Lopez

This past weekend not only did I take pictures of my parents, capturing the amazing moment I posted about the other day but I also took some pictures of them with their grand babies.  This isn’t all of the grand kids, just the youngest ones.  In total, Grandma and Grandpa Lopez have 10 grand kids!  I’m a little biased since my babies are in these pictures but I love them.

Boy is it hard to take pictures of so many little ones.  I took tons of pictures and still didn’t get any of everyone looking.  That’s ok, the pictures show all of their little personalities which makes them even better!

My parents

This was a very exciting weekend for me as I did a few different shoots.  They were mainly of my family and didn’t go as planned but I did get some good shots.

I plan to put up the “sneak peaks” of my photo sessions throughout the week but I had to start off with my parents.  My younger sister and I had our kids at my parents house this weekend so we decided to take a few pictures of my parents with our kiddos and I wanted to get some pictures of my parents together as well.  A lot of years ago we took family pictures and they captured an amazing picture of my parents together.  They both looked so happy and my  mom had the smile my dad loves so much.  My parents have the picture in their house and my dad always talks about how much he loves it.

As I was taking pictures of them this weekend I was hoping I could capture a picture as good as that one we all love so much.  After going through their pictures I am unbelievably pleased because I may have caught a picture even better than the one so many years ago.  As I looked at this picture after I finished editing it (in black and white since it is my Dad’s favorite) I had tears in my eyes.  For me, this picture says so much.  These are my parents, exactly how I think of them, happy, full of life and love.  If this picture doesn’t say LOVE I don’t know what does.  There is so much love in this picture, they way they are looking at each other, its undeniable.  It brings happy tears to my eyes because I know how much they go through every day with the stresses of us kids, their business that they own together and just life.  This picture makes it seem like none of that exists, it shows that despite all of those stresses, they still love each other more than anything.  I’ve said it before but this is why I love photography, moments like this, moments that sometimes don’t show very often but that can be captured and remembered forever.
