THE JOURNAL

Arizona Portrait Session

I have so many memories of when we were four and five… from dancing in my collection of tutus, to swimming and playing with our aunt’s horses. I can’t believe how much time has flown by, and how much we’ve grown up since then.

When I think of my cousin, Marissa, I think of her great love for animals.  She’s always the first one to pet a new dog, and making friends with any animal she meets!
She’s a fantastic hair stylist with braiding skills I seriously envy… Oh, and she also works as a florist in Texas, so her talents are certainly blooming (pun intended- it was good, right?).

 

 I’m seriously in love with shooting in the Arizona desert… and with morning sunrise, the light is so dreamy!!

Although we don’t see each other very often, I’m really grateful for social media… it allows me to see what fun she’s up to!  And did I mention she has the best smile?  She does!  That, paired with her contagious laugh-I like to think it’s a Cano thing. 😉

Marissa’s seafoam maxi dress fit in so well with the neutral landscape of Arizona for her portrait session!! I can’t wait to go back!  I’m seriously in love with shooting in the Arizona desert… and with morning sunrise, the light is so dreamy!!

Marissa, I love your laugh and love for others- and I can’t wait to see what these next few years hold for you!! YASSS QUEEN!!

It's an easy treat to make and it can be served on its own with something warm to drink, or topped with creamy vanilla ice cream...or if you're like me, both!
