Creative locations can bring out the best in a family session, especially when its somewhere that the kids are comfortable to run, play and be themselves. As frequent visitors to the Phoenix Zoo, the C family knew that the smiles we’d get in photos would be real ones and that the little Colombian town near the Andean Bear was a good fit for their bright, casual style! This session took place last year, when the kids were 2 & 3, usually the age that we just try to contain them to a specific space, but never actually assume any real control. Running, jumping, giggling, playing, way more fun to capture this age and get photos to remember all the little details. Plus, after we gave the kiddos their lollipop treat, we snuck mom & dad off to get a few photos of just them. Something that I highly encourage all parents do!
