I recently photographed a family who drove from Eloy to Tempe Town Lake for their portraits. We found some great locations around the Tempe Beach Park and the Tempe Arts Center fountains and had fun with it. The kids were sweet and funny and SO patient with all the walking and shooting! Thanks to M. & her family for making it so fun. The pictures are beautiful because YOU all are.
We walked toward the big cement bridge and found some great light underneath it – perfect for getting the right skin tones. And the grungy background of the cement is totally “in” these days (you must have seen all the pictures of families by loading docks, yes?) and I loved it.
The kids have luminous, lovely eyes and sweet faces, and I just really liked them.
The whole family had a ton of patience – most kids are “done” with photos after 30 minutes and refuse to take more, but they were troopers and kept going as long as we kept suggesting new locations for photos.
The weather was crisp in the morning and hot at mid-day, but it was not too hot, and overall it was perfect for the photo shoot.
The water features and fountains at the Tempe Arts Center was a fun break for the kids and also offered up lots of awesome photo ops for me, so we were all happy!
For me, taking pictures is a joy – and I hope this gorgeous family enjoys them.
