I absolutely love the desert. Don’t get me wrong, I love living in the Northwest for the amazing mountains, pine trees, lakes, etc. and don’t plan on moving, like ever! But I also have such an appreciation for the beauty of a desert. Every time I go to Vegas one of my favorite things to do is coordinate a desert shoot. Yeah I know, who goes to Vegas to just go to the desert?! Haha. Well I did do some other fun stuff too- like go to Gordon Ramsay’s Hells Kitchen, and go on hikes, and eat entirely way too much- but this is definitely one of the highlights.
It is so refreshing to get out of your normal environment and shoot. I had never met Justina until the day of the shoot and let me tell you, she is a rockstar! She hiked up through these rocks and hills in her heels and didn’t trip once. I would have broke an ankle if I tried to do that. About a week before the shoot I had sent her a Pinterest board with some outfit inspiration and she totally nailed it! We were going for kind of a boho-retro vibe. I hope you like what we created!! Would you ever do an outdoor shoot?
