Nathan’s Senior Grad Session

In the latest in my series of catch-up posts, here is Nathan with his senior graduation session from last year. This young man, like his sister who I also photographed, was as easy-going as they come and, as you can see, he pulled off some seriously handsome shots!  He is currently making his parents proud at the U of A, and it’s easy to see that he has an amazing future ahead of him!

Haidyn and Friends Stunt Group

I had the best time with these young ladies!  When Haidyn’s mom contacted me about photographing her daughter and her cheer stunt group in an outdoor setting, I knew this was going to be a fun one!  We met up at The Farm at South Mountain on a cloudy day with a chance of rain in the forecast.  Fortunately, the skies cooperated with us, and the girls let loose with fun ideas, cheer stunts among the trees, and beautiful laughs and smiles!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from G. Miya Photography! Every year, we do a themed photo shoot for our family holiday card, and this year our girls overwhelmingly requested our favorite TV show “Once Upon a Time.” Special thanks goes to good friend Sue of Big Bad Collars for costuming help, as well as loan of a black velvet cloak from friend Michelle.

Gene & Maxine – 10/26/13

I don’t do many wedding these days, but I am sure glad that I got to do this one! I got to meet an amazingly charming couple who were obviously crazy about each other!  I am so thankful to Gene and Maxine for having me at their wedding and allowing me to also take family photos on their special day.  Thanks as well to friends Joanna and Kevin who recommended me!

Bryan & Geri Family Session – 11/18/12

This family is amazing! I know this because I’ve known Bryan since intermediate school, and Geri since they were married. Now they have two AMAZING little boys, and I was so honored when they asked me to photograph their Xmas pictures this year. With preschool age children, you never know what you can expect – smiles or tears. It isn’t hard to see which one we got for this shoot! As an added bonus, the boys were happy to ham it up for me. Thank you, Bryan and Geri, for a super fun time hanging out at the park and getting to capture some great moments with your beautiful family!

Joanna & Kevin Family Shoot – 11/18/12

This session features some great friends of ours who happen to have two beautiful girls that have played and grown up alongside mine since they were babies.  This year they were joined by their cousins, which definitely doubled the fun once the posing was over and we allowed them to run amok. Four girls running loose in downtown Chandler – yikes! :-) The shoot actually began rather inauspiciously when Joanna and Kevin realized the night before the shoot that the location we had originally selected was also close to the Ironman Triathlon race on that same day.  Strike one against the photographer for not checking the calendar! After some research, we decided to go ahead with the shoot as planned since our location was well west of where the race was to begin … or at least that was what we thought. Fortunately, I headed out there early enough to discover that the authorities of the various properties around the area were jealously mindful of their parking being utilized by Triathlon attendees and had barricaded everything off for several miles.  Not wanting to hike half a mile and look like we had been in the Triathlon by the time we reached our photo location, we coordinated and headed off to an alternate place (thank goodness for cell phones) and got some great photos despite the bit of early morning excitement!
