I've been photographing the Howard Family for a few years now and this year we decided to do something a bit different by shooting at Vasquez Rocks. Ashley is an amazing yoga instructor (check out her site here) so I wanted to shoot somewhere that reflected her spiritual and peaceful nature. We had so much fun highlighting the kids' playful side by incorporating fun props like the tee pee, jumbo balloons, and magic wands. The family spends a lot of time outdoors so it was awesome to snap some pics of them totally in their element climbing on rocks and jumping from path to path. Ashley's dress is by Free People. Hair by Ashlee Norman. Make up by DoubleTake Makeup Artistry. Reese's flower crown by Celebrate.
For Janae's shoot I wanted to capture something that was feminine and kind of whimsical. I felt that wardrobe from Free People would be able to provide that soft, flowy look I wanted. Janae actually did her own make up for this shoot. Not only is Janae a stunning beauty, but she is also an extremely talented make up artist and half owner of DoubleTake MakeUp Artistry along with her twin sister. Yes! She's a twin!
