It’s May and this workshop was in March. I know.. I know.. You’re probably thinking.. What took you so long to blog about this session? I have a really good excuse. I was 8 weeks pregnant during this workshop. The first trimester was really rough on me. I couldn’t do ANYTHING. All my projects were put on hold. Here I am almost 19 weeks pregnant and I have some energy.
This styled shoot was just amazing. The hosts, the location, the models, and the vendors. Being so close to White Sands National Monument, New Mexico (El Paso is only a 1.5 hour drive) I have visited White Sands every 3-4 years for a fun day of sledding down the dunes but I have never had a photo session.
Now I wish I had a session there ALL THE TIME. There is nothing like a southwest sunset. I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking.
