Every once in a while I drag my own kids out to test out a spot before I offer a session to my clients. Generally they are such good sports about modeling for me. It seems that in the spring, they have been dragged around even more than usual. That beautiful allure of the desert blooms comes and goes so quickly. You can take gorgeous photos in a location one day, and just a couple of days later everything has changed.
When I brought Tessa out for the cherry blossom photos she had been through this routine before. Just last year I took Tessa and her best friend out at one of these exact locations. I hope to update her here at least every couple of years. It's beautiful to see her grow and change. And I also love to see my photography grow and evolve.
