This beautiful mother and son session was photographed at Valley of Fire, and incredible location just an hour or so away from Las Vegas. Every time I take a client out there, I am blown away by it's unique beauty and color. I think it is so unique to where I live, and I just love adding that element into sessions.
This beautiful mom had never had professional portraits taken she and her son together, and really wanted to capture this time in their lives. As a mother to four grown children, I often talk about the importance of this. Especially about us as parents being in the frame with our children. It does literally happen in the blink of an eye and before you know it they are grown and making lives of their own. I think that documenting your lives just as they are now is not only a gift for you as their parent, but also for your children to hold and look back on for years to come, trust me they will!
I do have to say the beautiful sunsets that we have at this location did not fail to once again amaze me and add such a beautiful element to this session!
