Family Mini Session | Salt River, Arizona

October 2nd, the Sunday it rained and rained and rained here in Phoenix! It was also the same Sunday I had 5 mini sessions all day long. You can imagine the feeling in my stomach as I was driving at 7:30am watching the storm literally take over the Valley of The Sun. I couldn’t believe it, what was I going to do? There was no time to reschedule so I just crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. It will work out I kept saying all day long. 

And thankfully it did! I got the chance to meet some amazing new faces including this beautiful family below. They were absolutely amazing! Mom stepped out of the car in this long pleated cream maxi dress, dad looked sharp in his button, and of course my favorite part was the little one in her dress + hair bow. The rain let up for almost the exact session length. As soon as we finished saying to one another, is there any other pose or shot that you wanted that we haven’t already captured yet? Nope we are good….then big droplets started landing on our heads! A mad rush back to the cars through the trees just in time for a quick hug goodbye. 

The stormy weather allows for the green trees and blue water to really come to life! The Salt River is always a favorite of mine, and this session shows why!
