Big Springs Park Family Pictures | Arizona Family Photographer
These Big Springs Park Family Pictures were an adventure! I shoot here all the time but this was the first time with snow on the ground. There is a beautiful mountain valley/meadow to the left of where these pictures were taken and that was the original plan. The only problem was the snow was up to my thigh! Needless to say we had to change the plan. Funny how foiled plans always yield the best results. I love the way these family pictures turned out and we had so much fun while taking them.
In addition to the thigh high snow, a freezing wind came up every so often. These two little boys were champs! And when it got to be a bit too much, Dad went and got his laptop to play “Everything is Awesome” from the Lego Movie so we could have a dance party and get warmed up. It worked and the best smiles of the day followed!
This is one of my favorite games to play with young kids! I tell them to make a new funny face every couple of seconds and take a picture of each one. The whole point is to get them laughing which results in a great portrait but I love delivering all the silly faces to my clients too.
