Since my business is based in Gilbert Arizona many of my clients are from Gilbert or the surrounding areas as well and I find many people have the the same questions about family pictures. So here it is, your comprehensive guide to Family Pictures in Gilbert Arizona.
When is the best time for family pictures in Gilbert Arizona?
Living in Arizona, the answer to this question obviously has a lot to do with the weather. But honestly, the answer isn’t much different than for anywhere else. Hands down, most people prefer to have their pictures taken in the Spring or Fall. Winter also isn’t too bad though it can get just a little chilly. Nothing like the snowy sessions I’ve done in Utah, but still, chilly.
March/April and October/November are probably my busiest months. That means they book in advance, especially holidays and weekends. if you’re interested in getting your family pictures done in these months, try to schedule at least a 6 to 8 weeks in advance.
Where should we go for family pictures?
Great Question! First I want you to think about what you want your location to feel like, bonus points if there’s a location that special specifically to your family. Like maybe you like to go camping at a specific park or mom and dad got engaged there. Whatever it is, your family pictures will feel more special if the location is more than just pretty.
Next, think about what kind of landscapes or settings you connect with the most. Do you like classic desert and want to show off the unique beauty of your home state? Or do you want something that screams Arizona a little less with a bit more green? Maybe you feel at home somewhere more urban, or maybe you want to go all in on an epic location like Sedona or the Grand Canyon. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ve got options. Work with your photographer to find the best fit for you.
