What a wonderful time for this new little family! I was so happy to celebrate with them by photographing their miracle baby boy. Taking the session outdoors gave texture and context for the portraits. Not only is the red rock a beautiful backdrop, but the location is close to their home. Baby was so sweet and happy to snuggle with mama.
I found this cactus flower in my neighborhood. I love the idea of how the cactus is so dangerous looking to keep itself safe and yet it has flowers. Beauty can come out of difficult things.
I photographed this for a friend who just had surgery and that was her difficult thing. The beauty was how her family adores and supports her which adds to her healing.
I hope you can find the flowers in your challenges today.
My family just recently moved to Arizona. We are loving the spring weather and our new neighborhood. I collected these images while using one of the many walking paths in Anthem. The area and light was beautiful. We have seen many varieties of animals such as rabbits, quail, javelinas (looks like a pig), road runners, woodpeckers, cardinals, and have heard coyotes. We see rabbits and quail most often. There are two rabbits in the 2nd image, can you see them? I am looking forward to photographing portraits with these beautiful backgrounds.
