Riparian Preserve Family Pictures | Gilbert Family Photographer
The Riparian Preserve is one of my all time favorite places for family pictures and the best part is its less than 10 minutes away from my house. The Riparian Preserve is a wilderness park located just behind the Southeast Regional Library in Gilbert, AZ. It has miles of walking trails with desert landscape on all sides. It’s a beautiful gem right in the middle of the city.
One major benefit the Riparian Preserve has for family pictures is all the water! The Riparian Preserve is home to several ponds and a few streams which means it cools off a few extra degrees during prime session times. If you’re from here, you know that’s a BIG deal during Arizona’s hot summer months. It will still be hot, but you most likely wont be melting.

The Stoner Family
I couldn’t have asked to work with a more fun family for my very first session after moving to Arizona. Tara’s pallet of neutral blues complimented the desert landscape perfectly and Brian’s tan pants warmed up the whole look. Tara got her hair and make-up professionally done by @cosmiixartistry and it completely elevated this session to the next level. Their little boy S didn’t want to cooperate with pictures at all, I think two-year-old boys might just be my toughest clients! But because his parents stayed calm we were still able to capture these precious family moments. I can’t wait to photograph the birth of their little girl in a month(ish)!
