Catalina State Park Hike

With the recent snow on the ground, I decided to go hiking at Catalina State Park in Tucson, AZ. The park has beautiful scenery and trails into the mountains. The streams were running and all the saguaros were covered in snow. I took my parent’s dog Caesar for company and I think he had as good a time as I did.

Snow in the Desert

As most of you know, Tucson and Phoenix received a few inches of snow on Wednesday. It is ┬árare to see snow in the lower elevations of Arizona. Thank goodness I hadn’t packed away my snow clothes from Boston. As the snow fell, I went out into the backyard with my camera and dogs to take some photographs. It was so quiet and beautiful.

Maternity Photoshoot For My Sister

My sister Shandra and her husband Michael are almost six months pregnant with their first child. It is a very exciting time for all of us, but I am especially looking forward to being an aunt. As I am hosting her baby shower this April (April Showers), I wanted to take some photos for the invites, but also for sentimental reasons. We are having the shower in Tucson, AZ so I wanted to incorporate the desert landscape and also my sister loves the desert. Here are some of my favorites.Maternity Ddesert

Arizona Rodeo

This weekend I went with my family to the Yuma Jaycees Silver Spur Rodeo. Going to the rodeo every year is a tradition in my family and it is always a great event. As I only had my 50mm lens with me, I had to get up close to the arena. I got covered in dirt and scared by a bull, but it was a lot of fun to shoot.

Savannah Shoot

After leaving Baltimore, my cousin Jessica and I headed for Savannah, GA. It was wonderful to get out of the cold weather and explore the beautiful city. Savannah was amazing and with all the parks, fountains, and plazas, our walk around the city kept turning into a photo shoot. Thank goodness my cousin is such a good sport when it comes to my photography,
