While we have enjoyed our time on the Blogger platform, we have come to realize that we have outgrown it's clunky ways and old school way of getting our images to you. While we thank it for it's many years of use, we have found a new home with the folks of Exposure. Please re-direct your browser bookmarks to our new, modern home! Thank you for always being with us, wherever we go! xo sam + dave
Dave and I decided a few years ago that one of the best ways to get through a North East winter was go take a trip in February. This year we got lucky! We had a woman in Arizona contact us to book a lifestyle session and we both knew that this was a sign. At the same time a good friend of ours had bought a Jeep out west and was planning on driving it back to NY. Score!! So Dave and I packed up our gear and a couple changes of clothes and flew out to Tucson for our session and then drove the southern route back. We didn't have much time to stop and sight-see so we picked our places carefully. Joshua Tree and The Grand Canyon were on the must do list and we were fortunate enough to hit White Sands as well. We mainly took video but did remember to switch over into still mode and snap some shots here and there. This is a little snippet of our trip.
get out and explore!
Lauren and her husband Eric have a beautiful, big maple tree on the corner of their deck. If it wasn't so big I might actually try to pocket it and take it home. I love it so much and in the Fall it's leaves turn the most amazing shade of red. When Lauren confessed to me that she had always wanted to do a photo shoot in her wedding dress, I immediately scheduled our session for later that week. At 5:30 in the morning. And it happened to be about 35 degrees out. She was such a trooper! She even put on the coveted adult tu-tu and rocked it out! We sang, we danced, we laughed and we made some great images. They are now expecting their first child and I couldn't be happier for them! I know they will be the best parents. And the maple tree survived the newest plans for a garage/man den so I have big plans to have a part two with hubby and baby next fall! Stay tuned.
