Apache Wash Trailhead, Phoenix, AZ

This last-minute model call was an absolute DREAM! Hillary pulled together outfits, the drive and attitude to meet me at Apache Wash Trailhead January 13, 2024. I have never photographed at Apache Wash Trailhead, however, it was on my bucket list of locations!

About the Family

Hillary was expecting baby number two, and shortly after our session she welcomed the new addition to the family. I was stunned when she told me she was almost due - she had a beautiful baby bump and rocked her poses! But her daughter was the one who stole the show! It didn't take long for her to open up and embrace the photography session! From being front and center to embracing her soon to be sibling - she was not afraid to explore Apache wash and showcase her personality.
