Aaron and Jen Olmstead | Scottsdale, Arizona

Desert Family Maternity Session

Some people are easy on the eyes. Some people are good for the heart. Jen and Aaron are both. We met Jen for coffee at a Starbucks in Las Vegas (it’s less shady than it sounds) during a photography conference two years ago. We don’t remember exactly what she was wearing.
