  • A little about me :-)

    Hello Everyone! First of all, THANKS for stopping by! I don't often get a chance to be in front of the camera, so I wanted to share a little bit about who I am while I have the chance :-) I am a chef, taxi driver, dry cleaner, teacher and mother to my 3 beautiful children. My family is my life and I am beyond blessed to be able to do what I love and still be able to be there for my children whenever they need me.

    Cherise Kiel Photography was founded in January 2009! I feel absolutely blessed to capture such important memories in my clients lives. To me, photography is more than just a picture, it's a moment captured in time. A priceless memory that we can relive over and over every time we look at that image. I truly love what I do and I am honored to be able to capture such important memories for you and your families!!

The Future Baby { T } | Surprise Maternity Photography

Katie was referred to me by another one of my past clients.  We had talked to each other over email several times, planning out all of our ideas for her shoot.  They were super excited and so was I!  Then the day finally came 🙂  They made the trek from the East valley over to the “west side” in order to shoot at my “secret meadow” spot.  This has become my new favorite location for families, children and newborns alike.  We have been having unusually warm weather lately and the sky was perfectly clear.  It was the perfect day!

When they arrived, I was setting up our “clothes line” set and we were ready to get started.  Everything was perfect and so were they!  We had so much fun and Katie was absolutely gorgeous!  I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to photograph and I can’t wait till their newborn session!!  They have so much love for baby Tristan already and I know it will grow tenfold once he’s here!  Congratulations guys, I will see you in a couple of months!

Erin & Jeff | Scottsdale Engagement Photographer

What can  I say about Erin and Jeff?!?  I met Erin months ago during a consultation for her wedding.  Her fiance, Jeff, was working out of town so Erin and I met up at Paradise Bakery to see if we were a good fit for each other and to talk about the wedding details.  Well, it turned out that we loved each other and so we booked her wedding.

Finally,  it was time for her engagement session.  When we were talking and planning their session, she had mentioned several times that they weren’t very comfortable in front of the camera and that they might need a lot of direction.  So I came prepared to tell some jokes and to make a complete fool of myself in order to make them feel a little more comfortable in front of the camera.  Lucky for them, I didn’t need to do any of that!  From the moment we started shooting, they were relaxed and ready for some fun.  We laughed the whole shoot and got to know each other a little better throughout the evening.

Erin and Jeff,  I had such a great time and I can’t wait for your wedding!  Only 1 month to go!  I hope you are prepared for some more fun and I am looking forward to it!!  YAY!

Please feel free to use some blog love for Erin and Jeff also ( I love to read your comments)!
