What a lovely family! We spent the afternoon/evening with the Janecek family in the Havasu Foothills where they live. When I first spoke with Janessa about her vision for the shoot, she mentioned she wanted the raw desert as the backdrop. It’s amazing how many portrait shoot requests I receive with a location request of grass, trees, greenery etc. When you live in the desert southwest this can be a tall order. I love that they embrace the beauty of where they live.
We had a great time chasing around the kids. We try and get a few of the traditional portraits in, but mostly spend our time letting the kids be kids. In this case, that meant placing a rock on your brothers head and searching for the best sticks. These are how memories are made!
It’s been a good year. Actually, it’s been a great year. It’s been incredibly busy and stressful at times but so rewarding. I’ve photographed my heart out, traveled all over, met many new people and friends and learned heaps and heaps. I feel very full at the end of this year and am ready to take on 2015. I will literally be starting fast out of the gate (flying to Seattle on Jan. 4th for a week).
Thank you thank you thank you to all my clients, friends and family for being the best ever.
I am loved.
I am supported.
I am ready. C’mon 2015.
Enjoy this little slideshow I put together of some of my favorite photos from this past year. It was so hard not to share everything. I love it all too much! Haha! Keep an eye out for a few selfies, a sneaky shot that John got of me and vice versa. Muah!
