Valerie and the baby girl she carries inside

A recent Maternity session we did with first time mother to be Valerie and her soon to be baby girl. She and her husband Robert are extremely excited to bring their little pink bundle of joy into this world and since she is due to come just around the corner we captured these images to remember these precious months of anxiously awaiting her arrival.

We are so happy to have been a part of this special moment in your lives. Wishing you all the best with you new little princess.

Let the designing begin!

The time has come. We have taken enough time off of designing to figure out the direction we wanted to head in as far as design goes and we think we have it. So the designing has begun. We are so excited to share the end result with you BUT you WILL have to wait just a tad bit longer,sorry :(. 

Until then enjoy these teaser pics ;)

So many wonderful things to come and we will have some to share in the next two weeks, just in time for Christmas gifts yay!

Evelynn Audrina

We had the wonderful pleasure of capturing this little beauty Evelynn. This baby girl is a mere 6 weeks old but so alert and happy. It wasn't hard for us to fall in love with her and be able to get precious images of all her little faces and gestures.

We hope you enjoy her as much as we did.

If you are pregnant or have a little one we would love the chance to capture such a special moment in both of your lives. These are the moments we cherish.

A place I haven't been in years!

The LAUNDROMAT!! Yes its true my washer broke forcing me to load my piles of clothes into my car, which seemed much smaller once it was filled with clothes, and head to the laundromat ugh. Oh spoiled gal am I! The energy, the extra work, the 2 mile drive, sitting and waiting AHHH. What choice do I have but to send my family to work in stains and odd scents. I figured I would make the most of it and grabbed my purse and Camera and off I went.
Midway through my wash I walked over to see if the rinse cycle had started CRAP what do I see? A toy gun, a key, a GLUE STICK and a dart just swirling around and around. My first thought was, I hope no one else has seen this, and second I hope that freakin glue stick does not ruin my clothes,thankfully it stayed closed.

Anyhow 3 loads, $15 dollars and 2 hours later I'm finally done.

Good news is I have a new washer now THANK GOD!

Here are a few of the images I captured to pass time once I got tired of watching my clothes spin around and around ;)!

Bad Bad Lisa White

Our bad Snow White whom we are calling "Lisa White" is now a Voodoo Vixen but prior to that she won a Pin-up contest in which a free photoshoot with Stella Rose was Offered any style she chose and this is what we got out of the Beauty! PERFECTION!!  There is no one better suited to be an evil Snow White than the fair skin blue eyed, dark haired Lisa. I am sure you will love the results just as much as we all did. Enjoy in this guilty pleasure.

Lisa was such a pleasure to work with. She is such a beautiful person inside and out and these photos are evidence of the amazing person she is.

Az Burn Center Ride -the photos

A couple weeks ago many of you know we hosted the AZ Burn Center Charity ride. It was such a great turn out and such a wonderful experience for a great cause. We wanted to be sure to share some of the great images we captured of the inspiring event.

Registration at Nicantoni's best Pizza EVER you MUST try!

The journey to Christopher Creek Landmark restaurant. The bottom pic is Pride MC and Voodoo Vixens (hosts).

Thank you Christopher Creek Fire Dept for coming out and letting the kids dress up. Our Vixen Raffle with some of the best prizes I have ever seen and our kid station tattoos, balloon animals and coloring books

There he is my little Gionni and the inspiration for this ride and not to be without mention the amazing bands that came out and played Jamie Waldron Trio and Rhythm Dragons. Boogie
We really did have the best experience and hope to do it all again next year with an even better turn to out to benefit the AZ Burn Center Children.

Hope to see YOU there!

Mac Alphine's and Engagement Noir

Two of the most awesome things ever! We got a call from our amazing loyal customer Wendy to do an engagement session. She wanted something different and unique and that was all she requested, oh and that her Fiance can wear his converse haha. Our brains got to working (slowly but surely) and since we have been wanting to take Stella Rose into a new, original direction we thought hey why not start now so Film Noir engagment photos it will be and the scounting for a location began. We literally drove around for two days stopping at shops, restaurants, hotels and anything inbetween to find the perfect location.  Then like an angel out of the sky aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa there it was MAC ALPINE's.  We no joke drove by it at least 6 times before we realized it might be a good spot. Either way if you have never gone YOU MUST especially if you love vintage since they have a furniture vintage area and and everything else including two rooms of clothing, vintage of course. Inbetween the stores they have a dinner/restaurant/cafe all surrounded by the most amazing vintage nic nacks. If you are not a fan of vintage go for the shakes they have a zillion different flavors including PICKLE and they make them in original 1950's shake machines. You will not be disappointed. You will find this amazing spot on the corner of 7st and Oak in phoenix.

Here are a couple pictures of the shop and the engagement session as usual leave a comment and let us know what you think.

The most exciting shopping experience for a vintage lover.
mmmmmmmmm if you don't really care too much for vintage find your new love in these shakes mmmmmmmm again!
Some of the treasures you will find at Mac Alphine's, I DIE!

Now the moment you have all been waiting for, Engagement Noir
The secret kiss

Here's looking at you kid
So darling

Congratulations Wendy and Ryan

It was a wonderful time with a wonderful couple at a great location. As usual we hope you all enjoyed the images.
