Monahans Sandhills State park

Alva + Miguel


This hidden gem in West Texas is one of my favorite photoshoot locations. It makes my photographer heart happy when a client wants to book a session at this location. Not only does the sand help create such beautiful light but there is a freeness associated with the photos taken at the park. It's a magical place that creates perfect memories and even better photos.


It is the perfect location for an elopement (see an elopement I captured at the park here) or an anniversary photoshoot. There is just something romantic about the park that captures so nicely in a photo. Like I said, there is a freeness that comes with the territory.


I was fortunate to take photos of Alva and Miguel for a Valentine's photoshoot this year. I absolutely love how the colors turned out. Alva had asked my opinion on outfit ideas and between our brainstorming, I think that they turned out gorgeous with the details of her blouse and the colors of both outfits. Especially the blush colored skirt (I'm smiling thinking about it all)!


This was an incredibly fun photoshoot that was laid back and full of laughter, as it should be. You can ask Alva and Miguel, there is never a dull moment with my photoshoots. I'll play you music, lay in the sand, make you laugh, or dance like a crazy person just to get that "candid shot". I'm all about movement and motion in my pictures. Although I have many tips for "posing" I never want the image to look posed. I will take multiple shots and right when you think I am done and you relax, typically that's when I get "the shot".


So whether or not you are looking to elope, propose or you are just wanting a couples session - I've got your back.

Let's make the magic happen and capture your moment!
