Puffer Family: Family and Portrait Photographer Northern Arizona
Family and Portrait Photographer Northern Arizona: Puffer Family. I had such a great time meeting and photographing the Puffer family recently in Flagstaff, Arizona. Their baby girl – Quinn – was about six month old. She was full of smiles and LOVED when her parents gave her kisses. It was great working with these three and exploring the Northern Arizona landscapes together. It’s amazing to be a part of so many special moments in my clients’ lives. I love my job!
Family and Portrait Photographer Northern Arizona: The Location…
Part of the Flagstaff Urban Trail System, Buffalo Park hosts a 2-mile loop trail through an expansive open space on the flat top of McMillan Mesa, an ancient lava flow. Most of the trail is on open, native grassland, but dips into a wooded ravine just to the west of the park entrance. The trail provides a magnificent panorama to the mountains north of town, including the San Francisco Peaks, the Dry Lake Hills, and Mount Elden. Buffalo Park also offers access to FUTS and Forest Service trails including the Arizona Trail and McMillan Mesa Trail.
As you enter the park, look to your right for a trail offshoot that takes you to a pond, where ducks and other waterfowl can be seen in winter and spring. Mule deer regularly frequent the meadow west of the loop trail. When the breezes blow, you are likely to see ravens performing acrobatic flights. The meadow and mixed forest vegetation means that a broad suite of grassland and forest species visit Buffalo Park. Keep your eyes peeled for lark sparrows, among the most striking of sparrows in the area. Their heads are a rich chestnut color, with white or buff streaking. Some say their painted faces give lark sparrows a clown-like appearance. As they fly away from you, down the trail, you will notice white tail edges similar to those of mourning dove.
