Phoenix | January 2016

One of my life goals is to travel more, to see new places around the world. So when I was invited on a girls trip to Phoenix with some amazing photographer friends, I jumped in with both feet.

We headed into the desert to shoot the scenery. And each other, of course.

I don’t know what I was expecting, really, but the amount of green in the desert took me by surprise.

While we were playing in the desert, this girl put on a sparkly dress and kicked up her heels for a fun little shootout. I love how they turned out! That light …

We also visited Hole in the Rock, which was mind-blowing. And yes, the plane is real! Definitely a right place at the right time kind of moment!

We made a stop at the Botanical Gardens, and the light there was just divine. I loved all the texture and color there!

And of course, we shot each other again. I took too many of Marissa in this spot – I just loved the tones and her expressions! And the paparazzi came out again for Elizabeth. 🙂

I wish I had taken more photos around the house we stayed in … it was a fun little place with a ton of detail. I did manage to sneak in a few of Milo having a bath in the kitchen sink.

This trip really whet my appetite for travel photography, and I’m dying to jet off somewhere again. Next up will be Seattle in the fall!
