Ali and Jesse: Flagstaff Maternity and Portrait Photographers

Flagstaff Maternity and Portrait Photographers: Ali and Jesse. This awesome couple was on vacation. They live in Nebraska – so the cold temperatures were nothing to them! They have been together since they were in high school and were celebrating 4 years of marriage. An extra special surprise for the session was Ali announcing that they are expecting! We utilized a few ultrasounds of their little one. It’s amazing to be a part of so many special moments in my clients’ lives. I love my job!

 

Flagstaff Maternity and Portrait Photographers: The Sun Rising…

Busy old fool, unruly sun, Why dost thou thus. Through windows, and through curtains call on us? Must to thy motions lovers’ seasons run? Saucy pedantic wretch, go chide. Late school boys and sour prentice, Go tell court huntsmen that the king will ride. Call country ants to harvest offices, Love, all alike, no season knows nor clime. Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time.   Thy beams, so reverend and strong. Why shouldst thou think? I could eclipse and cloud them with a wink. But that I would not lose her sight so long. If her eyes have not blinded thine. Look, and tomorrow late, tell me, Whether both th’ Indias of spice and mine. Be where thou leftst them, or lie here with me. Ask for those kings whom thou saw’st yesterday, And thou shalt hear, All here in one bed lay.

 

Flagstaff Maternity and Portrait Photographers: The Location…

Part of the Flagstaff Urban Trail System, Buffalo Park hosts a 2-mile loop trail through an expansive open space on the flat top of McMillan Mesa, an ancient lava flow. Most of the trail is on open, native grassland, but dips into a wooded ravine just to the west of the park entrance. The trail provides a magnificent panorama to the mountains north of town, including the San Francisco Peaks, the Dry Lake Hills, and Mount Elden. Buffalo Park also offers access to FUTS and Forest Service trails including the Arizona Trail and McMillan Mesa Trail.

 

As you enter the park, look to your right for a trail offshoot that takes you to a pond, where ducks and other waterfowl can be seen in winter and spring. Mule deer regularly frequent the meadow west of the loop trail. When the breezes blow, you are likely to see ravens performing acrobatic flights. The meadow and mixed forest vegetation means that a broad suite of grassland and forest species visit Buffalo Park. Keep your eyes peeled for lark sparrows, among the most striking of sparrows in the area. Their heads are a rich chestnut color, with white or buff streaking. Some say their painted faces give lark sparrows a clown-like appearance. As they fly away from you, down the trail, you will notice white tail edges similar to those of mourning dove.

Words can not express how thankful and happy we are that we chose Monica to capture our perfect day. She made us feel both comfortable and confident in the whole process. She has this ease that makes you feel you’ve known her for years. Her kindness, personality, and professionalism was beyond what we could have hoped for. Her communication and organization was so impressive as well (I am far from organized)! Our photos are AMAZING, they are perfect. We wish we could do it all over again, and again. Seriously, book her right now! Best choice we could have made, and she helped make our day so wonderfully memorable and way less stressful.
