She told me she had an old red pickup truck she wanted to use for a prop- I knew just the place to take it! #familyphotographer

It's family photo season- and although I have been quiet here on Instagram lately- I've been working like crazy behind the scenes. Had to stop tonight and share a few from this session. #dirtroad #family

Peace out Palm Springs!
Headed back to Phoenix with a coffee, sunglasses, open sunroof and a killer playlist. Hours of singing in the car will surely work up an appetite- which means I'll definitely have to stop at In and Out Burger. #perfectroadtrip .

October in Arizona. Hard to believe, but this blooming sunflower field is in the middle of the desert. When I found this field, I scrambled to get a couple family sessions in before the blooms were gone. Missed the sunflowers? Not to worry... up next.... Arizona cotton fields! .

We were losing light quickly - so we jumped off the golf cart and I directed them to "run/walk" down the resort entry (only a few cars slowed down my vision). They trusted me...and clients that trust my vision are literally the best thing I can ask for. That and good light.
One of my favorites from the night. #aliandbrent2017

Today is my first wedding of the season. The summer break was great- but I was a little excited to pull out all my nicely cleaned and calibrated camera gear this morning... if I get brave I may do a little behind the scenes on my IG story. Video frightens me...so we'll see 😜

When I fist moved to the desert 15 years ago I was obsessed with #Bougainvilla plants My obsession still holds true.
