When I met up with this great little fam at Natural Bridges, I knew this little girl, Riley, was gonna make me earn my money – she’s got spunk, a little firecracker – and I loved photographing her. She breathes life into the family, much to her parents’ frustration at times I’m sure – but when you’re taking pictures, a little action and attitude is great. Riley brought along her schoolmate, Jake, to mind the dog when she wasn’t being featured in the group photos. Near the end of the session we were confronted by the most beautiful sunset I’ve seen in a long time, there was just such a variety in color and texture, likely because of the recent storms. There were at least three other photographers out there, which is probably why I was also confronted by the local peace officer. Having the dog along didn’t help as they, um, aren’t allowed. But all’s well that ends well, and the P.O. let me get a few last shots of the fam against the crazy sunset.
Here’s a few of my favorite photographs from the session, there’s 85 edited photos in total to view and print at my proofing site, www.GoodEyePhotography.com.
