Family & Newborn Sessions, Joshua Tree & 29 Palms

I had the pleasure of meeting this family right around the time they were expecting the birth of their beautiful new daughter! 

We visited my favorite desert location for some family photos.  They quickly won my heart by including their fur children in this family session. 

At the bottom of this post, I've included a few of my favorite images from their newborn session, which took place a short while before this family session.  Be sure to take a peek at those, as well!

There's a lot to see in this post, I hope you enjoy the beauty of the desert, family, and new life!

The whole family cozied up on a blanket, with smiles all around. Love!

I love these.  Just a sweet boy and his dogs.  Best friends.

The fur babies needed their own moments to shine, too.  Thank you for indulging me as I share their portraits in the golden desert sun, below.

My heart just about explodes with love when I look at these.

One-on-one time was shared with each of the children.  I think they all loved it!

A little bit of playtime on the dirt road.

And off they walked, into the golden, desert sunset.

Here are a few of my favorite moments from their newborn session. Soundly sleeping, we had the perfect chance to capture her sweet little face and toes!
