Sansom // Ridgecrest Large Family Photographer

I was so excited when Sheri messaged me about doing family pictures again this year. Last year we went up to Alabama Hills in Lone Pine and captured some of my favorite images to date. This years session is really competing however for that title.

I could not ask for a better, easier family to photograph. They always bring style and great color combinations. They laugh literally the WHOLE time and you can just tell how much fun they all have together. This year we headed out to the dry lake bed in town and were lucky enough to get an amazing cloud cover that day as well. This is pretty rare for Ridgecrest, so I was stoked. 

Being out on a dry lake bed you obviously don't really have a lot of sitting options since there is NOTHING around, so we brought a couch!! This couch actually used to belong to AJ and Caitlin (the cute couple in purple with the little gal) and we bought it from them when we moved into our new house. Now the couch sits in Pauls office since we recently moved some furniture around. The couch was the PERFECT addition to the lake bed and I really think it worked perfectly. 

Since we are likely moving this year, this will probably be the last session I do with this amazing family, so I am so glad we were able to capture some really fun and memorable images! Love you guys!! 

Smith Family // Ridgecrest Family Photographer

This session last week so utterly perfect. The locations, the light, the weather, the family. I could not have asked for better. I really enjoy when families get together and get everyone involved in creating memories. It gives me an opportunity to document the larger family for everyones keepsake and also to document the smaller family units/relationships that are ever present in any family dynamic. 

And it doesn't hurt when they are all gorgeous AND love having fun and just going with the flow of the session.

The Smith family is very dear to me. Liz and I have become close friends over this past year and she is an amazing sister in Christ to me. Her husband Josh is hysterical and keeps us rolling. Her cutie patootie little guy is energetic and curious and LOVED the camera. And I mean loved. He kept running up to me to get a closer look at what I was doing every time he could. Every time he did it, it made for a great shot! 

I am so excited with these images because I think they perfectly capture this fun family as well as the beauty of the area they call home!

Love you guys!
