Desert Backdrop: Quick and Painless…Mostly!

My brother and his family were visiting from out of town and were looking for a scenic Arizona background for their photos. Posing for photos is one of my brother’s LEAST favorite things to do! So, I had to work quickly and intentionally to get some great shots. The desert is beautiful but it can also be hazardous!! You’d never know it, but the older of the two boys accidentally got a cactus needle stuck in his hand. He was too scared to have it pulled out so he chose to keep it in his hand until they got home from the photoshoot. He had to carefully hide his right hand with a 1″ needle sticking out of it. But he smiled like a champ through it all!!
