Arizona Wedding-Boudoir-High School Senior-Photographer » I'm Stacy Kokes, and I photograph love...

I love, love, LOVE senior portrait sessions! Especially when I get to work with a sweet senior like Maquel.

This girl is going places! She has the looks, the smarts and the drive that will allow her to fly high. With her interest in pursuing exercise science (which was my major), we surely had a lot to talk about.

I can’t wait to see where life takes her!

xo, Stacy Kokes

We found this awesome meadow right by the lakefront. The light was KILLER! And Maquel? She straight up ROCKED it right out the gate :)

I don’t know many people who can pull of a up close n’ personal shot quite like this girl! Flawless!!

I’m swooning over this dreamy light and beautiful girl! Photographer’s dream right here :)

Hey lovelies! I am back in AZ and ready to rock n’ roll.

My WI trip came to a close on Saturday. Goodness, it was such a great time. The trip was like food to my soul. Mmmmmm Wiiiisscccooooonsssiiinn.

You know what I love? Candles. Not the over-powering, fake-smelling kind, but the subtle, mmmm your house smells SO good kind. I just added new candle to the home this week and I love it. Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that my home was full of 2 dogs, 1 man and no woman to keep it clean for 11 days. Let’s just say that the house needed a little help in the sweet smelling department :).

I need to read the Hunger Games. The end.

Happy Monday!

    Sarah 'Fritz' Martin - Ok… miss you already so come back soon, and hopefully one of these times to stay. I too enjoy the sweet smell of a good candle. And Hunger Games… ummm YES you do!
    Love, Love, Love from Wisconsin.
    PS When do we get to see the pictures?

I had such a great time soaking in all that Milwaukee had to offer at Alecia + Scott’s engagement session.

Alecia and I used to dance together at AOD (such good times) and I am beyond thrilled that I get to document this amazing time in her and Scott’s lives.

Can’t wait for June 2013! xo Stacy Kokes

Have I ever told you how blessed I am by what I do? I absolutely love documenting love. And more than that, I love getting to know the people in front of my camera. When a client becomes a friend, I realize all the more how blessed I am by my business. This is surely the case with Amy + Tyler. I adore this couple and always look forward to me and Amy’s coffee dates upon my return to WI.

You may remember them from their wedding and engagement session last year. They just celebrated their 1 year wedding anniversary at the end of June and thought they would commemorate it with a session. My kinda people! ;)

    Jen - Oh, happy anniversary to them! I remember their wedding from last year – time sure flies. How wonderful for them to be celebrating their first anniversary!

Happy Monday!

Nostalgic: ‘ ..experiencing a sentimental longing for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.’ (wikipedia). That would be the word I would use to describe my time here in WI. There is something about the summers here that just make my heart sing. The tradition of the local 4th of July festival and fireworks. The company of old friends and family. Watching my nieces and nephews run around the yard and remembering back to when I used to do the same. Sitting on my parents porch, drinking in the sweet breeze. Yes, my heart just loves summertime in WI!

Sister Sister….remember that show? Oh I totally watched and it (and I have a feeling you did too!). While I never got to experience the perks of having a twin Tia and Tamara style, I do have the privilege of having two amazing older sisters. They are both busy mamas raising their kids and being superwomen, so it’s not often that we get to spend time as just sisters. But by the grace of God, we were able to make it happen this time around. So what do three ‘Fritz’ girls do on a night to themselves? I’ll give you multiple choice:

A. Paint our nails

B. Go out for coffee

C. Find the silliest clothes in the store, try them on and pose in the mirror together making a fool out of ourselves and making other shoppers question whether we are sane or not…

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, I think the answer is quite clear :).

Here’s to nostalgia, sisters and making a fool of yourself every once in a while!
