Several years ago I saw some engagement pictures done in Joshua Tree National Park. With my love of clean lines, simple backgrounds, sun-flare, and a modern twist on family portraits….I was immediately IN LOVE with the desert session. However, I quickly wrote it off. I mean, could I ever really get a family to drive 2 hours out to the desert…with KIDS…and then expect those kids to be HAPPY in pictures? And is there really anyone who wants their family photos in a desert?
THEN. JODY. EMAILED. ME.
“YES!!!” I typed to her, “I have always wanted to do a desert photo session!!!”
We spent many emails back and forth trying to convince each other we weren’t totally crazy. I don’t know if we succeeded…or we just succumbed to the idea that we wanted to do it even if it WAS crazy. And Jody is a risk taker….and super laid back….the perfect kind of mom for a photo shoot in the desert.
With that…out to the desert we drove…
And my heart *swoons* every time I look at these photos we got. What an amazing day. I do hope someday another laid-back-risk-taker-mom asks me for desert family photo shoot.
