A toasty shoot...

In Phoenix, Arizona...somewhere in the neighborhood of 110° or so! But seriously, when you have the chance to shoot this little face, how can you not brave the heat?

It was my first time meeting ten-month-old Samuel - and he and my little one, Thomas, became fast friends. We shot around him and his incredibly fabulous parents, Michelle and Nate, at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs. We made good use of shade, air conditioned breaks, and a bit of water here and there...and the scenery was fantastic. :)

Onto my favorites...






















This was the first time he was standing on his own!


Michelle and Nate, I loved finally being able to shoot him!! :) Can't wait for you to see the rest!
