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!

    Klingt wie eine Mischung aus Syd Barrett, Nick Drake und Sade.… Wenn man sich andere Tracks von ihnen anhört fallen einem auch The Soft Machine und deren »Free-Jazz«-Ausuferungen ein… Wirklich sehr gut! Toll, dass es noch junge Musiker gibt, die sich für psychedelische Musik begeistern können!

    I just want to know if you got a chance to eat the food Lisa made for the shoot (or drank the wine)? Oh, and that weeping willow … LOVE. Those are my favorite trees and I think I could sit under that one ALL day. So fun that you get to travel and do what you love (which you are so gifted in), what a blessing.

      Lisa offered it to me! :) She was so sweet, but I had to head out to the next shoot, I was on a tight deadline! She did however invite me back up so I’ll have to check it out, the menu looked amazing, and the view, spectacular! You’re so sweet, and that’s true, I certainly do love to travel with my camera. Need to find more opportunities like it ;)
