A Stunning Desert Maternity Session at Lost Dutchman State Park | Kara & Tyler

My last few sessions have taken me places I may not have ever considered on my own.  Most recently, I was taken to Lost Dutchman State Park, nestled near the Superstition Mountains in east Mesa.  Kara and Tyler are avid hikers.  They love the outdoors and the desert landscape.  For their maternity session they wanted a location that is sentimental and of course, beautiful.  Lost Dutchman State Park was the perfect place for a stunning desert maternity session.  After checking in at the front gate and obtaining a photography permit, we headed out on one of the many trails.  Tyler had already scouted a potential location for us in earlier weeks.  The place he found was sublime.  Surrounded by tall saguaros, cholla, and palo verde this place was perfect.  Mother-nature did not disappoint boasting stunning scenery and occasional breezes creating a romantic ambiance.

And just when I thought the sky was done performing and the air began to chill.  One of the most gorgeous sunsets I’ve ever seen colored the clouds.  It was divine.   After the golden sun dipped beyond the horizon the sky filled with the most gorgeous shades of pink, peach, lilac, and violet.  It was something to behold and a reminder to me to occasionally step out of my comfort zone.  Thank you for the experience Kara & Tyler.  You look magnificent.
