Whitesands Monument in New Mexico has been on my list for a while of places I would love to see. Same with the Strebeck Family. So we made this session happen, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
I am not going to lie, its not a short trip from where I live in Arizona, but six and a half hours later we were there. The weather was PERFECT! It was about 80 degrees and the sand was so cool and soft on our feet. I was about to shoot the entire session barefoot. About half way through the shoot the clouds started rolling in. I was getting a little nervous, but ended getting some great shots because of it.
Once I was done with the kids, we sent them on there way and spent a little time with Mom and Dad. Being a parent myself, its always nice to have reminders of how much our partner means to us.
Just as we were finishing up we looked on the neighboring hill, and saw this.
