What Do Portrait Photographers Do When They Go On Vacation?

We can't help it.  We love to photograph.  We photograph people, places, objects, animals, you name it.  If we see something interesting or beautiful, we have to create a photograph of it.

Our adventure began in a tent in Burbank with a special treat - front row seats at Odysseo by Cavalia, courtesy of a very dear friend!  To say that it was an unforgettable, magical evening would be a huge understatement.  We were not allowed to take photos, but  if you take a moment to view their website, you can get an idea of just how wonderful this performance (featuring 60 horses!) was.

The evening was a wonderful prelude to the amazing week ahead.  We visited Sedona, Arizona, truly one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen!  Every time you turn around, there is yet another gorgeous photograph to be taken. 

The lighting was a photographer's dream, the weather was perfect, and it made for an amazing vacation spot.

We took a ride on the Verde Canyon Railroad which took us out into the wilderness for some lovely desert spring scenery.

We had a fantastic time hiking some of the beautiful trails in and around Sedona's red rock country.

Among the red rocks and cactus, we saw many beautiful flowers.

And a hiker or two!

Sedona is also know for its vortexes and healing energy sites.  Many tourists travel there to experience these geomagnetic forces.  One of our adventures involved a four-wheel drive jeep tour which took us to several of these sites.

At one of the sites we visited, the trees along the path were twisted and growing in a spiral because of the vortex energy.  Hugging these trees is supposed to be very healing, so of course, we had to try it too!

Holy Cross Chapel is built on one of the most famous vortexes in Sedona.

This is just a small taste of the beauty that we experienced - and we can't wait to go back!
