I spent last Friday night with this sweet family in Mesa, AZ! I've known Jenn and her family ever since Griffin was an infant (he the big handsome boy in the photos), so we were all comfortable with each other! Jenn wanted a location that was kid friendly and adventurous considering the kids love to bug hunt, throw rocks and enjoy nature. Water Users Recreation Site was the perfect spot for their family session. Maddie played hard to get with her smiles, but I managed to catch a few by the end of our session and Griffin showed me how to pick the best rock for skipping water. Photographing water, cacti and gorgeous sun, at the same time, has me wishing I lived a little closer to the Mesa, Arizona area!
