I first met the then-dating Lauren and Shawn at a wedding in Sayulita, Mexico where Shawn was a groomsman. The next year, I was photographing their wedding in Pine Top, Arizona. I had the opportunity to visit Lauren and Shawn at their home in Phoenix this past fall, for a one-hour family photography session. When I arrived Shawn was outside welding fence, Lauren had just returned from work and the new baby, Corbin, was down for a nap. I was greeted warmly by their German Shepherd. Photographing the Cox family was easy, we've stayed in touch over the years and they are kind and welcoming. We picked the perfect time for photos in the late day Phoenix sunlight. We started indoors then moved out to their expansive garden. Shawn works in his family's nursery business and Lauren is an organic chef. We later returned inside and got Corbin ready for another nap, reading him books in Spanish while he fell asleep.
