Tucson's Red Bird of Paradise | "Our Little Desert Peacock" | Arizona-Sonoran Wildlife | Texture Tuesday

As everything shrivels a little in the heat of desert's summer, this fancy plant is cheerful, resilient and so very stubborn. 

I really like these flowers. 

And to get a bit nerdy on y'all.... the Red Bird of Paradise is scientifically dubbed Caesalpinia pulcherrima and part of the pea family. It also goes by Pride of Barbados, Poinciana, Peacock Flower, Dwarf Poinciana, and Flamboyan-De-Jardin (translation: Flamboyant Garden).

Rock the Frock | Senior Sessions Revamped!

 {AZ Portrait Promo | Payton Stauch Senior Portrait Session | October 2010}

It's that time. Seniors have started their final stretch, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and the hallelujah chorus is playing gently but progressively louder. I offer and insist you consider a different approach to senior portraits this year. Step aside from the stiff poses, the typical backdrops and the tilted chins. Instead, don your favorite knickerbockers, assemble the most memorable props from highschool, add a dash of creativity and bring some personality! Consider making it a group event and grab your besties from highschool to do a group photo shoot and make it a fun, memorable affair! You'll capture highschool and preserve this stage of your life with so much flare--(sigh)--it makes me jealous.

Feeling inspired? Contact LKM and we'll plan that raddest senior sesh that'll make the rest of your classmates drool. Muaa aa aaa.

P.S. Group rates apply so the more peeps you assemble the more pennies you save for that rad college car.

P.P.S  Just in case I wasn't quite clear, I suggest you consider booking...uhm, now. October is gonna get crazy... :)
