Years ago when I lived in San Diego, and was just starting out as an attorney, I was the designated Imperial County girl at my law firm, which essentially meant I got stuck with all the cases in El Centro – a two hour drive east of San Diego. Though most probably would have despised waking up at 5:30 a.m. to drive two hours to Court, only to make a five minute appearance, return to your car and make the two hour trek back to the office, I relished those early morning drives through the desert, rocking out to the Killers while watching the sunrise set its morning light across the vast expanse of nothingness. And while my El Centro days were well before this blog ever came to be, or was even imagined, I distinctly remember picking out locations along the way that I knew would be perfect for a photoshoot. Suffice it to say, it has been my dream to shoot in the desert for almost ever. Fast forward to this weekend – I decided to make my dream a reality – at Joshua Tree, a place I’ve been dying to visit for years now. As I drove past the entrance and into the National Park, I was so struck by the unending beauty that unfolded before me that I literally cried. And then, it dawned on me – all this time I’ve thought I was a beach girl -but I think this little gypsy soul kind of belongs in the desert.
