When we first tried to schedule this session I was so excited to do a shoot in the morning! I love morning sessions for the lighting!! But I was also a little nervous--the sun rises so early in Arizona and it gets super harsh really fast! Boy am I glad we did it when we did. Holy moly, I loved the lighting! Actually, if I was to put together a list of reasons why I absolutely loved this shoot, it would be EXTREMELY long, haha. But maybe just a few of my favorites? :)

 1. The outfits! I LOVE shooting photo shoots with soft colors and neutrals. I just love how light and flowy their outfits look!

2. The gorgeous railroad tracks. I think I've been getting tired of the green scenery. When you think of getting your family portraits done, brown isn't typically the color you visualize as the background, but I absolutely love it in the background. Just take a look at some of the children's pictures and you'll see why!

3. That sky!! (Look for it in the hand holding pics)

4. The family! You can just tell in the pics how incredibly loving and fun this family was! And they were so easy to pose! Out of the whole shoot I think I only caught a couple blinking eyes! I didn't even have to photoshop heads from other photos on to one main one. Yes! Haha.

Anyway, like I said, the list could go on and on. But maybe you can just enjoy the pics and see for yourself why I loved it so much!

Tomeh + Diana | Beautiful Fort Bayard Engagement Session

Look at these two love birds! These two found each other in the same little town that my husband and I found each other in! I've known Tomeh since he was in middle school but it was only this last year that I've gotten to know Diana. She is such a sweet, fun, and happy person! Can I just say what a cute pair these two make?

Our engagement session was such a party the whole time. Before we  started shooting, I warned them that it's normal to feel a little awkward the first 20 minutes posing for the camera. As soon as they stepped in front of my lens it was like these supermodels just popped up out of nowhere!They've been together so long that they were just so comfortable being themselves, even with me clicking away I guess!

For this shoot we got to explore Old Fort Bayard in Silver City, New Mexico. From the giant trees, to the old abandoned houses, it made for the perfect backdrop to this beautiful couple.

I can't wait for their wedding that's coming up in just a few short weeks!

I could not get over how gorgeous the lighting was at the end of our shoot! My jaw is still dropping over how soft and beautiful it was!

Such a beautiful and adorable couple!
