'Heather from Highschool'- Palm Springs Family Photographer


The crazy world of facebook connected me to this old friend from Highschool, Heather. She's the medium-brunette in that sea of gorgeous faces. She, her mom, and her sisters were coming out to Palm Desert for a girls-retreat for Mother's Day, and the three girls decided to surprise their mom with a photo-session! It was too fun, being a part of their big sercret right up until they pulled up, in this rather shady part of town, next to our brick wall, and their mom was demanding some explanations. I was honetly a little worried she would be too overwhelmed by the unexpected camera-girl, the rambling bum, and the welcoming cat-calls, but she was SO excited about it. They all weathered our 100 degrees like the rock stars they look like.
I know. They got out of the car and I had to take stock of each of them before I could figure out who mom was. She looks like another sister right?


Heather had texted me that she might have to let the cat out of the bag because her mom wasn't cooperating... that they all wanted to get pedicures to get pretty for their pictures and she wanted to go straight to the pool. I thought I'd capture their pedicures for proof that they succeeded.

Ifirst saw some of these on facebook... and had a gut feeling these pics were taken by you! Love it! When are you coming to SD again? I might just hire you to do some pics as a surprise for my hubby. And then you will have to show me how to use my dang camera! lol I keep playing around with it, but still not the same.

Not only are you talented at composition, you also apparently have a way of getting people to pose very naturally. Bravo!
