Cowgirl in the Sand

Art can be inspired by anything really, and for me it’s often music.  I find a lot of inspiration in songs and as I listen, I have visions of photographs.

I recently took my daughter into the desert right by our house to let out her inner cowgirl.  The shoot was inspired by Neil Young’s “Cowgirl in the Sand.”

She rocked it! So grateful that she indulges, and even enjoys my little inspired sessions. She makes a great partner in photography!

“Hello cowgirl in the sand
Is this place
at your command…..
Hello ruby in the dust
Has your band
begun to rust”

-Neil Young

Natalie’s primary goal as a photographer is to get to the core of the human connection by capturing authentic, emotive expressions and documenting life as it unfolds. Based in Peoria, Arizona, she draws inspiration from the life of her two young children and takes photographs that will forever serve as photographic memories of the stories and seasons of their lives. She is an Offset Artist and her work has been published by Lensbaby, Beyond the Wanderlust, and she is also the founder of Life {Unscripted} a community for photographers to connect, share their work, and be inspired by each other.
