The Location

This family photo session was taken in beautiful Ahwatukee on two different hiking paths near South Mountain. This spot offers beautiful mountain views, cactus and gorgeous sunsets. While the “hiking” part is really minimal, these locations do require a very mild amount of walking to get to a few of the great spots!

Time of Day

This beautifully lit family photo session was taken about an hour before sunset. Especially with desert locations, choosing the right time to start your session is very important. This allows for those beautiful desert sunsets to be captured int he background of your family photos, but it also provides the most flattering light. Not all Phoenix locations require a start time of near sunset and i can go over a few choices with you as we schedule your family session.Phoenix children's photogrpher captures three young siblingsSisters photography in Ahwatukee near South Mountain
