Bare Family at The Farm South Mountain

Tawni is my hair stylist and I adore her!  She owns Altered Ego Salon in Tempe and her hubby Chad owns Solo Cafe next door! It’s the cutest thing, wouldn’t that be an absolute dream to work with your hubby every day?  I think so!  The salon is always buzzing with women getting beautified while next door at the cafe, it’s packed with ASU students on their Macs between classes enjoying the delicious coffee and baked goods.  You can pretty much say that both businesses are incredibly successful and run with lots of love.

Tawni and I have been talking about this family shoot for a while and I was happy to shoot it at one of my favorite places, The Farm at South Mountain in Phoenix.  The farm is in full bloom and was a lovely backdrop for this session.


Equipment used: Canon 5D Mark II / 50mm f/1.2L / 85 f/1.8EF / 35mm f/1.4 L

Diana Elizabeth loved a lot of Nikota’s outfits.  She wanted them in her own size.  She did buy a pair of Steve Madden Tsumamii Rain Boots (yes it’s spelled with two i’s) in green that she found at Last Chance for $15.  Now she’s waiting for Monsoon season.

Diana Elizabeth is an author, photographer, and obsessive thrift shopper. You can typically find her in the garden wrist deep in dirt, at a local estate sale or planning her next creative themed party. She continues to blog weekly.
