Summer Siesta | El Paso, Fort Bliss Portrait Photographer

Megan Aisha Photography will be taking a mid-year "siesta" as we spend much of the month of June relaxing with family and friends.  Although I will be unavailable for June sessions, I will be checking in periodically with updates.  I am also currently booking for July sessions.  Thank you for your support and understanding, and have a fantastic summer!



Lady In Red | El Paso, Fort Bliss Beauty Portrait Photographer

White Sands might be my favorite location to shoot.  Yes, the wind can be insane.  Yes, there is no escaping the direct light.  But I find that I do my best work when I am challenging myself to overcome the obstacles that inevitably crop up in on-location shooting.  In this case, it was embracing my recent love of dramatic, direct sunlight.  With the perfectly white sands acting as a massive reflector, getting studio-like shots was effortless.  Mix in a gorgeous gal, a flowing red gown, and the visual interest of thorny shrubs and protruding pillars of gypsum, and this windswept session was a smashing success.
