This family session at the base of the Superstition Mountains was the perfect way to end 2017!
Earlier this fall, I photographed Donavon and Kimber’s family at one of my favorite locations in Scottsdale. When Donavon’s parents and brother and sister-in-law came for Christmas, we headed out again to photograph the whole family!
Unfortunately half of them, and myself, came down with either the nasty cold or the flu the week prior to the photos (raise your hand if you DIDN’T get sick…I applaud you). Let me tell you, it was not a fun way to spend Christmas! I know that Scott and Amanda can attest to that as well! They flew in from the frigid midwest to warm sunny Phoenix only to enjoy it from urgent care!
Thankfully by the end of the week, everyone was starting to feel a little better which is a good thing because I took them way out into the middle of nowhere at the base of the Superstition Mountains for their family session. Towards the end, we waited for the sun to drop low enough to be able to get the beautiful mountains in the background. Let me tell you, it was worth the wait.
Vickie and Hilmer,
Thank you so much for following me down the longest dirt road ever and hanging out with me in the desert. Spending my last session of the year with your beautiful family was so special to me! The Superstition Mountains made for the most beautiful backdrop but what made the evening even better was getting to know your family. I’ve heard stories of your faithfulness and generosity and after meeting you, I can see that there are probably way more stories than can ever be told. What a legacy. Being able to watch you love on and interact with your family was something that I truly admired. I pray that the Lord continues to establish the works of your hands!
