I had the honor of photographing this military family/photographer before they moved to the east coast for their new duty station! They spent the last 4 years living in 29 Palms, due to the military, and their favorite adventure spot was Joshua Tree National Park (can you blame them?!). When Sam reached out to me to document their last family trip to JT, I was so excited to start planning. Sam chose bold, pops of color for their outfits (my absolutely favorite color palette) which worked really well against the neutral colors in the park. The sky started out a little gloomy and cloudy, but by the middle of their session the sky blew up! The big beautiful clouds added some dramatics and texture to the images, and lets not forget about that magical sun that peeked through! Auggie kept me up to date on books and facts while making me laugh throughout the session. This golden hour family session could not have turned out any better!
