PHOENIX magazine Summer Getaways – Sedona

PHOENIX magazine’s annual Summer Getaways issue came out in May and I’m happy to finally show these shots I took last fall! The early release of the issue – May instead of June meant less time to get these shots together, hence the early shots in the year.

There was quite a bit of traveling, I did three shots in one day up in Sedona. One, being the amazing and charming chef Lisa Dahl. This is her new restaurant Mariposa, a latin inspired grill which in Spanish means “butterfly”.  It also boasts some spectacular views of Sedona, I highly recommend visiting when you’re up there and give the gorgeous Lisa my regards.

Next was the Vineyards Bed and Breakfast in Page Springs. So charming, right next to a vineyard and a place I’d like to photograph with old trees and open skies.

If you’re in need for some meditation, 7 Centers Yoga Arts can help you with that.

I also want to make note that I illegally parked my car at the bottom of this hill, climbed up it in heeled boots and took this shot. I was sweating and thought I was going to slide down the rock but it’s all for the sake of a shot – and unfortunately this shot didn’t make the magazine cut, but that’s how editorial photography goes. If anything, I sure have a great memory and it was worth a hike up Sedona airport vortex.

When I saw that this shot made one of the mock covers, (in addition to another) I was pretty happy to see that!

How wonderful to see the desire of her heart come true – a girl is to be welcomed by three older brothers who are excited awaiting her arrival end of summer. Jennifer has been a blessing from the first day I met her almost a decade ago. From being baptized in her pool to celebrating birthdays as the years roll on and being Auntie to her little ones, and having her by my side when I got married, it is a true blessing to see each other as often as we do – when it was in a weekly small group, to living life in the same church community. The older I get, the tighter and smaller my world seems to become, and the less time I have, the more value I find spending time with a treasured friend like her. Since I wasn’t given a sister in my family, I sure am happy to have her as one of my chosen.
