sisters {phoenix, family photographer}

sisters.  bond.  love.

I had a blast shooting these two girls who came into town from Omaha with their mom for vacation to enjoy Arizona’s nice weather.  This was the 2nd year in a row that I got to shoot them and they make my sessions so much fun!! These sisters made me think a lot about my sister, two girls that are quite different in personalities and looks but love each other as a best friend.  I need to get on  my dad to get our pictures turned from slides to digitals so I can reminisce about ‘the good old days’.  Enjoy!

erin + dave {phoenix, wedding photographer}

love. fun. laughter.

I met Erin over 15 years ago, we met day 1 on a journey we took across the world.  Heading out on the open water we traveled for 100 days on a ship to visit many different countries on Semester at Sea. You get to know someone real quick when you are on a boat for days at a time and I was lucky enough to have found her right off!  Through the years we have traveled for our studies, traveled for fun, been roommates, we have laughed together, cried together (you should see her cry at a commercial/tv show/movie -its amazing) and kept our friendship strong even though we have lived in different states for a while.  I feel lucky to have her in my life and I now feel really happy that she has met Dave and will be starting her life out with him in a few months.  You guys rock and thank you for letting me capture some moments of you two! Can’t wait for the wedding!

year in review – 2015 {phoenix, photographer}

2015. memories. passion.

A few days ago I started to pull up some of my sessions from 2015 and thought I would take you guys down Emily Piraino Photography’s memory lane.  Not only do I feel so lucky that I get to work with all these great people and capture beautiful memories in their life, but look at all the cool places I get to travel! This year I have been to Ohio (my home state!), California, Washington, many cities in Arizona, Hawaii – people have let me into their homes, we’ve hit up downtown areas and locations where we have to do a bit of trekking to get to – people have let me document their special wedding day, their new babies, and families that have been going strong for years!  I have had people tell me that I have made them cry (tears of joy) laugh, and thank me for capturing special moments!

I want to send out a heartfelt thank you to all my clients whom I really believe have become friends – Thank you for letting me be apart of your lives, letting me create art with you and your families and letting me lead a life that I have always dreamed about.  Cheers to a wonderful 2015 and an even better 2016!
