20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
The Next Generation of Cowboy...in the Making

I went up to Paulden, AZ to take family photos of friends of mine. They were my first photography clients over 5 years ago, and this year I got to capture them in their home away from Phoenix. I paused when I saw this photo because I could see their son turning into his father, but it also looked like there was a weight on his shoulders to carry on that Cowboy tradition
