Send me to the desert ANYWHERE and I’m seriously in heaven! Yes I am a born & raised PNW girl (love the mountains, snow and rain) but I equally and totally love the desert. In early 2015 (how have I not blogged these yet by the way, shame on me!) Seattle-native singer-songwriter Amanda Markley (AKA my bad-ass sister) and I flew to Vegas for a day-trip to photograph the cover of her up-coming EP. I cannot even describe the amount of fun we had driving out to The Valley of Fire state park (just one hour from Vegas) and taking these photos. It was a shame we were so limited on time, we could have stayed and explored for hours. The colors, rocks and winding roads are just beautiful. I felt like we were inside of a Star Wars movie. At one point towards the end of our shoot, we climbed to the top of this rock and just sat there listening to the silence. It was truly incredible – and I highly recommend you check this place out next time you are in Nevada!
I will be traveling a LOT in 2016 and would love to connect with you in your town. If you are interested in booking a photoshoot like this, please follow me on Instagram to see my travel dates, or reach out to me through my contact form for rates & information. Cheers!
