This is the session that almost wasn't. When Rachel contacted me for her family photo session in Mesa, Arizona, I was so excited to photograph her cute family! As the day of her session got closer, I watched the weather like a hawk - and of course, it was the one day all month that it rained!

We rescheduled for later, then realized it was Easter weekend! We decided just to go for it, then we all got stuck in traffic! By the time we got to the location, we realized that everyone was camping there for Easter. I'm so glad we braved the busy desert because these are some of my favorite photos to date.

I'm obsessed with pretty much everything about these photos -- the colors, the outfits, the people, the location (Mesa, Arizona). If you're looking for a family photographer, I'd love to capture sweet moments like these for your family (click here!).
