I was blessed to be a part of the media team on field at Sun Devils Stadium for a home game in the inaugural season of the AAF . This game was especially important because it represented a chance for the team and staff to honor their namesakes- the Granite Mountain HotshotsRead More
The quick family portraits I offer at the beginning or end of my top two senior portrait packages is perfect for a close family like the Wagners! We met up at Tempe Town Lake for oldest son Tyler’s senior portraits, and made sure to get some great portraits of this fun family before Tyler headed off to college at the end of high school! Why I absolutely want a senior session to be about the senior- their growth, achievements, passions, and starting their next stage in life with their very own photography session- its also really important to remember that this may be the last photo of a family while everyone is still living together in the home they grew up in! A lot changes as a young person sets out for adventure on their own- a portrait to commemorate the first most important people they ever met is a must have!
Look at my helper!! I love this! While I was photographing his older brother, lil Wags got in on the action directing his sister in a fashion shoot! <3<3<3
..this may be the last photo of a family while everyone still lives together at home!
Fantastic summer night with Bandit and his people for family portraits! The heart and faith strong Nuttalls together again! With the oldest on adventures in college and missonary work, Audra knew she had to get them together for portraits when they were all in one place physically, because they always find ways to be together at heart regardless of distances.
Why is natural light photography always "versus" strobe flash photography? Why not BOTH?? I talk about this all the time-because its a constant debate in the photo industry... whats most important is beautiful portraits of the people we love ❤ captured with whatever quality light we have available or choose to use.
When you get puffy gorgeous clouds in Arizona you praise God for an amazing session sunset.!
Fantastic portrait session with the Anders, a beautiful family and beautiful views! Photobombed by wild horses! Tonight was the first time I saw an American Bald Eagle flying in the wild...!
So many magical moments during the Anders-Dustin family! I am so thankful this family chose me for their vacation portraits- and that I was able to share this evening adventure with them! Family portraits should be FUN!
I say this a lot on my website....Small hands grow, teens go off on their own adventures, photos are the keepsakes that hold our memories. Denise and David's beautiful children are all successfully graduated from high school, one young lady is just beginning her college adventures while her sisters have graduated college and are beginning teaching and career adventures! And it feels like it happens just so fast. The last time the family had portraits together, the youngest was a baby :)
We cannot think of portraits as something we will get around to, or a luxury for another time when time itself is so fleeting.
To anyone who knows a friend who has passed, or children off to college knows that a photographic memory is something you have to budget for. Anyone who has lost a parent that was 'camera shy' can tell you the heartbreak of not having even a photo to hold. Kids deserve a photo of their parents happy together! Holding hands or kissing...we want our kids to have happy successful relationships and they learn best from the example of their own parents.
The most important parts of my business is memory capture- I know we all say “they grow up so fast” but the real impact of that is that you NEED family photographs. You need senior images before they leave your family and begin their own separate lives. You need pictures of each other, together.
It’s true that no tomorrow is guaranteed and a beautiful photo of each other is a treasure.

"But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls." Khalil Gibran
Fantastic time meeting KJ & Murphy last week for a beautiful sunset session at Lake Pleasant! These sweethearts were adorably, playful, and so in love!
So happy to have met up again, in Arizona, with the always lovely Jessica! Jessica was visiting family in Az with her men Paul and Montgomery- I am so blessed she thought of getting in touch with me for photo memories with her parents and grandparents! Arizona is a far different photo experience than Nashville- but we were wowed with sun both time.
These sun-kissed moments with mother and child are some of my favorites- like EVER!
Memories are for more than a social media newsfeed! Small hands grow, teens go off on their own adventures, photos are the keepsakes that hold our memories.
Often photography is seen as a luxury, but to anyone whose parents have passed, or child has moved to college know that a photographic memory is something you have to budget for. One of the most important parts of my business is memory capture- I know we all say “they grow up so fast” but the real impact of that is that you NEED family photographs. You need senior images before they leave your family and begin their own separate lives. You need pictures of each other. It’s true that no tomorrow is guaranteed and a beautiful photo of each other is a treasure.
Very humbled and excited to have been featured in Voyage Phoenix Magazine this month! Such an honor- the interview was nerve-wracking for sure but I hope my love for my job and clients memories comes through :)
THANK YOU- TO MY AMAZING CLIENTS WHO ARE THE STUNNING MODELS IN THIS FEATURE!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TRUSTING ME WITH YOUR MOMENTS!
Valentines day should be more than just one day a year, its an example we set and exhibit to show our children and the world how to love when things are at their best and especially when they are difficult. It's the story we tell with kindness and compassion, grace and mercy, and yes- making out (by which I mean kissing and hugging) in front of the kids!
Here are some Lifehack ideas to celebrate love every day of the year!
I know what I will be doing MOST of February- voting in the 2018 Shoot & Share contest!!! You can't vote FOR my work... (its a fair, blind, & random 'draw' of photographers best images of 2018- there's no way to know which images or categories are next. I can't even vote for my work either unless it just happens to pop up!)
...You CAN join in the fun when it starts and click on your favorite image of four possible!
I will post links on social media when February arrives and the contest opens, with this link you can head there now and join the newsletter to get notified when the frenzy begins! . Its an inspiring month for me every year. Fantastic way to enjoy gorgeous images & get inspired creatively. Its also crazy exciting IF you see one of your photos come up- especially when you consider the millions of images that are submitted!!!♥ #portraitphotographerssuperbowl#amazingimageroulette #bestof2017 #fingersplints #thumbcasts #getinspired#shootandshare
AND...... the results are in! Update March 2018:
I am so blessed to have been a part of your senior, business, and family memories in 2017! Excited for the new year and all the families I will meet and capture. I truly care about your portraits & moments. Thank you again for choosing Anjeanette Photography for your family!
Here is the best of 2017 Family photography portrait slideshow! It starts with lush greens, sunny and rainy Tennessee days, and ends in my new home of Arizona with bright, dramatic landscapes and golden light. A lot has changed for my family and I this year- we treasure memories we made and are excited for the very new future- thank you for supporting our dreams, while letting us memorialize your own.
Prints matter! Memories are for more than a newsfeed-they are for a lifetime!
