{Rock & Roll – Phoenix desert}

That’s what this session was all about!  Jack, 9 and Riley, 11 were so hip, fun and cool to work with.  Not to mention their mom, Christy, who I adore.  Anyway, Jack is completely in Rock & Roll – yes, really.  I know, he’s only 9 but he know so many of the classics rock and roll bands, he blew me away.  And Riley, geez – she’s 11 and has such poise and grace but also knows how to still be a kid.  She’s gorgeous to boot!  Anyway, I promised them a sneak peak before I left for Seattle for 2 1/2 weeks.  I wanted to include so many others but there wasn’t time to edit them all before heading out of town and I want some to be a surprise in their gallery;-)

Had to start with some images that sum up our session.  These first two were taken at the end of our session.  Jack cooled off in the fountain in the 114 degree desert heat and begged for the water to hit him in the face, success.  Both were Rock Stars are for putting up with the heat with smiles on their faces. 






Edited with my faded vintage wash for a fun look (below)



Jump?  You bet they can jump – I was pretty impressed.  Love Riley’s expression!


The true rocker coming out in Jack. :)
