Denny + June's Sneak Peek

A few months ago, my mom asked if I would take some new photos of her for Facebook, and of course I said yes. So, we decided on a photo session while she is in Phoenix for a few weeks this winter. My dad doesn't love having his photo taken, so I was really surprised when he decided to join my mom for the photos. But, I'm glad that he did! It was nice to take photos of both of them.

These photos were taken near Estrella Mountain, and the area was GORGEOUS!

This was one of the first photos we took, and it's one of my favorites...


My mom doesn't love black and white photos.  She says she lived through the time when there was no choice, and now that things come in color, she wants them in color.  So, I tried to keep the black and whites to a minimum, but I couldn't resist a black and white edit on this one...


The yellow/orange in this one was a huge round structure outside of a building.  It made a fun background for a few photos...



When I was a kid, I was always told that I look just like my dad, but as I get older I hear that I look more like my mom.  What do you think?...


Love their poses.  I think they look too cute! :)...


Gorgeous view, huh?...


One of just my dad...


It looks like they are in Florida, not Arizona, with the water and palm trees, doesn't it?...


I really like this one, too!...


My mom requested this one!  I have an engagement photo of Kevin and I in a pose very similar to this...


A little of the stunning Phoenix landscape...


And just my mom...


I think this one is my favorite from the session!  I love that they both look relaxed and happy...


Thanks to my parents for letting me take their photos! I hope I didn't torture you too much during the session, and you'll let me take more pictures of you in the future. :)

  4. These turned out great! Makes me wish I had more pictures of my father. I really only have one or two and now he's gone, so I'll never get any more.

    I'd say you look a lot like your mom. I do see similarities to your dad though.
