My favorite family captures are those that represent the lovely personalities of my subjects. These three sisters were each so beautifully different!
In the desert the light wraps itself around in an ethereal glow. The lightness, the colors of the desert, all add an effervescent magic to the images. When looking at this shot I can feel the warmth. Both in the setting and the exchange between mother and son.
The Scottsdale Civic Center is always a beautiful location for portraits. The many flowers and plants are changed out there on a seasonal, sometimes monthly basis - so you are never sure of what you will get. But one of the consistent areas I love is the main park with it's old growth trees, and the water features and flower beds by City Hall. These were taken in September, but March through May will be greenest time for pictures there.
