Lush Green Desert Family Session: The May Family

January 28, 2019

Most people think the desert is just brown all the time. And most of the time, they’re right. However there are certain times during the year where the desert can actually be its own unique version of lush green! It almost looks like a soft green blanket that perfectly covers the ground. And if you top it with a beautiful glowing family, you’ve got the perfect formula for a fantastic family session!

I loved photographing the beautiful May family, where the girl power is strong! Stephanie and her two daughters were the sweetest, and Ryan, the only man of the family, was the best sport! Morgan was such a great protector of her little sister, Harper, especially when there was a little incident with those pesky cactus needles. I love the bond these two sisters share, and capturing their interactions was so fun! I loved taking daddy/daughter photos with Ryan and the girls because it was evident how much he adores them! And, Stephanie is such a joy-filled mama and kept things so lighthearted and fun throughout the whole session! She’s also a fellow small business owner and I was privileged to take some business branding photos for her as well a few days later!

Thank you, Stephanie and Ryan, for the opportunity to get to know you a little better and to capture your family at such a fun stage of your daughters’ lives! Thanks for being adventurous out to this lush green desert location that I’m sure felt like the middle of nowhere 😉 And I also need to give a shout out to grandpa Tom (not pictured) who tagged along as the Starburst dealer and smile catcher! Your role was critical!! I hope these images are treasured for years to come!
