David + Lauren | An Emotion Filled Desert Engagement Session | El Paso Engagement Photographer
From California to Texas - from four years to forever.
We had a bit of a crazy time planning for Lauren + David's engagement session! Sometimes the weather doesn't always cooperate whether we want it to or not. The morning of their engagement/family session, the sky was dark & cloudy + it was unseasonably chilly for the desert - although being from the Midwest, chilly here is nothing compared to the chill there. BUT you acclimate.
We were crossing every finger/toe for the sky to clear up & for the weather to warm up. Then that afternoon, the sun broke through the clouds & the temperatures rose - we were especially thankful for the crazy weather that morning that evening because the clouds made for a captivatingly beautiful sunset - most desert sunsets are breathtaking, but I swear it was showing off for these two & sweet six month old Blake! I'd go as far as to say that if it were a contest in looks, this family beat the sunset, hands down! The way Lauren & David laughed + enjoyed each other's presence the whole session was what warmed my heart. They snuggle peacefully & laughed genuinely! They danced with joy in their hearts + David picked up Lauren & swung her around with big grins on their faces. Those intimate moments during a couple's session where they relax & ease into each other is the best - because you can tell that it is a habit. A habit that comes from knowing & being with the person that makes your world go round.
I could breath so much about this entire session but it is so much easier to explain their love in photographs - so you'll have to take a look for yourself at all of my favorites from their session & what defines their love!
