The Ericksons were on their way out of Twentynine Palms for a military move so we captured some great images for them to commemorate the time here and hopefully help decorate their new home. Family sessions in the Joshua Tree National Park inevitably mean we will be doing some rock climbing, generally more than mom and dad had planned 🙂 ; this session was no different. With little adventurous ones we had fun finding new spots, on new rocks, that we could photograph both the beauty of this family as well as, the amazing desert setting.
As moms we often miss the opportunity to capture ourselves and our relationships with those in our family; it is something that I always encourage my moms to – I myself am bad about it. Mom rocked her portraits like a star in this session. Bet the hubby has one of these in his wallet before too long. We also took a few brief moments to capture mom and dad not as parents but as a couple. These two were fun and endearing to one another creating amazing pictures but also emoting their love and friendship. These are the moments that I live for and are why I am so in love with what I do ❤
