Red Rock Canyon {Nevada}

I spent a total of 12 days in December in Las Vegas, Nevada. Desperately needing the fresh air and sunshine, I bought myself an annual pass and went to Red Rock twice all by myself. Looking forward to spending many more days in 2018 there exploring and doing more photography; would love to get a couple more hiking trails under my belt too. This place is truly amazing.

The Manansala Family

I drove far for these guys, but this photo shoot was extremely important to me. Even before they arrived, I knew I would love this family! Giselle and Mark celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary the day before the shoot, and I think it is totally appropriate that we have these beautiful images to remember this important milestone. So here’s to celebrate Love and Family!

What do you get when you combine a talented and gorgeous actress/singer with a fabulous location? You’d end up with STUNNING head shots and plenty of editorial photos for upcoming music projects ! :) And I managed to squeeze in a fabulous photo of mother & daughter too! Sneaky sneaky!

It’s been so much fun photographing this daughter of mine in the desert this year!  I will look back to 2015 as the year where I added Las Vegas to my list of shooting destinations! This is our favorite place in Nevada: Nelson Ghost Town. Jewelry by: GypsyUnchained (Instagram)…love her work!
