Adventure Engagement Session Joshua Tree | Joshua Tree Engagement Session | Ian + Ana

For anyone who knows me, knows I am a girly girl, glamping, hotel snob, type of girl. If you said camping to me, I would have said, no thanks! Somehow I got myself into this next situation, and I am obsessed! Back story, I knew my clients liked to go camping  and thought we should choose a location that represented their sense of adventure. So I suggested Joshua Tree and they had been there several times before, so they know their way around. After we booked the date, they contacted me and asked if I wanted to go camping with them the night of the shoot. Ian and Ana had an extra tent and everything I would need! I was beyond nervous because I don’t like bugs and scary animals! I decided if I wanted to open myself up to an adventure, I couldn’t be fearful and shy away from an invite. So I said sure! Ana is amazing and provided me with a list of things to bring so I was prepared.

After the amazing session we finally found a spot to camp. We were starving at this point, so Ian got the fire started while Ana set up my tent. I was amazed at how prepared they were and they had everything! I literally sat by the fire drinking wine while watching them cook up some Carne Asada tacos!

In the morning we woke up before sunrise so I could get some shots of them. The sunrise was so beautiful! Once we finished I was ready to jet out of there and find the closest Starbucks because I need my coffee in the morning. Ian and Ana insisted on making me some instant coffee, which I was not too sure about (coffee snob). They made instant coffee from Trader Joes which includes sugar and creamer. Wow, was it good!

Ana and Ian decided they wanted to take me to a hiking trail not too far from our campsite. Anything for another photo-op and a little morning hike. The hike was quick and easy, except for the part were we lost the trail and had to figure out how to get back on it! LOL!

I REALLY got to connect with them unlike any other couple because I got to spend so much time with them. It wasn’t just the time though, it was being in their element and what they love to do together.

I am excited for my next adventures, and look forward to doing the Adventure sessions more often!
