Arizona is such a state of extremes…..from the desolate beauty of the Sonoran desert, to the beautiful snow capped peaks in Flagstaff, there is such a diversity here. With this family/maternity session, I was able to capture AZ in one of it’s extremes. With lots of recent moisture, the area we chose to shoot at near a lake was transformed into a bayou looking forest. Standing water all over, neon green grass, and cottonwoods fully leafed out. The location filtered the light perfectly, and cast a gorgeous glow on this adorable growing family.
