anniversary surprise! {phoenix portrait photographer}

May 26, 2010

remember the super-awesome dad who surprised his wife with a photo session for their kids AND an anniversary session for him & his wife? i am so happy to share with you just a few of their beautiful images!  this session was extra special for me because it hit on a topic that i’m passionate about….documenting our lives through photography.  it’s sad to me that for the majority of people out their our lives are documented up until a certain point: each year school pictures are taken, senior pictures, wedding pictures and then…nothing.  sure we continue on then documenting our children’s lives, but what about your relationship with your husband/wife? why are more people not like lisa & chris continuing to document their love for one another through awesome images…i guess my point is, you are never to old for great pictures people!!! and what a fabulous way to look back and remember your lives together, so grab your significant other and continue making memories through photography!  enjoy the images all and have a fabulous wednesday!

i L-O-V-E, love this image of lisa…don’t her eyes look amazing??

for anyone who knows lisa & chris, this is quite a common sight….giggling + starbucks = bliss : )

    As always Stacey, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Photos. I love the last image, I think of it as a perfect image for their kids to have…. many children don’t have great photos of their parents like this!

    The Starbuck’s photo is priceless. It definitely captures Lisa’s love affair with her coffee.

    Wow Stacy! I’m completely in awe of your beautiful work. They are all so beautiful, but I must say, I think the one with the Starbuck’s is my favorite! I think it captures perfectly the Chris and Lisa we have come to know and love. Love, love, love your work.
