Joshua Tree 2014 – the GoPro version

Well.  I’m even shorter on words than usual with this post.  They didn’t take me.  :-}

Welcome to Spring! :: Orange County Family Photography


One amazing, glowy-light-filled location 
+ 2 very sweet siblings ("He's one minute older," she announced to me upon arrival)
+ 1 talented mom (she hand-crafted the beautiful bouquet & wreath of flowers!) 
= a truly lovely & magical evening spent together, exploring, and creating photographic images.
