Fun in the Sun – Summer Pool and Drone Themed Shoot

What a blast getting the uber talented Claire Dailey back in front of our cameras. And not only our handheld camera, but also our drone! When it comes summer time, and the temperatures are blazing, the best 2 places to have your photo shoot is either in our air condition studio indoors, or outside in the pool. And wow, I have not had this much fun in the AZ heat in a long time. The 102 degree temps were worth the time to play, experiment and fly our drone to capture one-of-a-kind portraits. Just take a look…my favorites are the last images of the day.

A special thank you to the whole team who came together to make this shoot happen.

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
