Helloooooo, friends! Can I just say how EXCITED I am to share these images!? Since I started my business, I have been searching high and low for a beautiful desert location in Hermosillo. And I finally found it!! There isn’t much easily accesible open desert where I live so finding this was like receiving a box of macarons for me!! Needless to say, I was pretty excited!! I used to care less about the ugly, brown and dry desert landscape growing up in Tucson, AZ. But then I started to notice the immense beauty that only the desert can provide.
The way the sun and it’s reflections bounce off the different colored cacti is one of the most unique and awe-inspiring displays of beauty I have ever seen. And I really want to be able to bring more people out there in hopes that it inspires a sense of admiration and pride for our beautiful desert, which many people take for granted.
Last Friday, I was lucky enough to have a beautiful family trust me when I told them I had finally found the perfect desert spot that I was looking for. Before going there though, we stopped at another little location that was on the way. In Hermosillo, there isn’t really an obvious change in weather as we live in perpetual heat haha But this location was the closest that we could get to a “fall” feeling. So after taking a few photos there… we went to my new favorite spot and boy, that desert glow did not disappoint!
They were all such troopers and trusted that despite all of the jumping cholla cactus around, I would capture beautiful family images for them, especially since the main star of the session was their sweet little baby boy, Alex!
I photographed Baby Alex as a newborn and again when he was baptized. It’s been so much fun to capture his growth and be able to provide his family with images that they can cherish for a lifetime… especially since children grow so fast! And that’s the beauty of photography! A fleeting moment lasts forever with a photo. These are the images that his parents will show his future wife to show how much of a cutie he was. These are images that he will look back on when HE has a child… and compare his facial features as a baby with those of his own son or daughter. And are the memories his parents, Ana Lucia and Alejandro, will look back on to reminisce when he is grown.
I seriously couldn’t pick a small selection so I hope you don’t mind all of the beautiful desert glow! hehe
Tell me that desert glow isn’t gorgeous! And juxtaposed with such stylish attire on a beautiful family… well, it doesn’t get any better than that folks!
