Summer Happy Hour Mini Sessions in Phoenix, AZ
I had a few families ask if I was going to do the mini sessions again this summer, so I offered 3 days of sessions in Anthem, Surprise, and downtown Phoenix. Unfortunately, no one signed up for the Surprise location, so I went with Anthem Park and Heritage Square in downtown Phoenix. Both locations are gorgeous with green grass. Anthem Park also has cute ponds, a kiddie railroad, and a gorgeous waterfall & bridge. Heritage Square has adorable porches, steps, and doorways that all make for beautiful backgrounds in family pictures.
I was blessed to have so many repeat clients sign up right away, as well as some new families. It was great to catch up and see how the kids have grown. I also enjoyed meeting my new families and hoping to see more of them in the future!
My first day of mini sessions was at Anthem Park, in Anthem, AZ on July 10. Anthem Park is one of my favorite places to do photography because of the grass and waterfalls. I also love the park because I take my own daughters here for festivals, the annual Easter Egg hunt, carnivals, the big kiddie park, splash pad, basketball courts, to fly kites, and of course to feed the ducks. It's a great family park!
Here are a few of my favorite photos from our Anthem Mini Sessions:
Another reason I love to shoot in Heritage Square is because every time I finish my sessions, I head on over to either Pizzeria Bianco for dinner, or to Bar Bianco next door to the AZ Science Center. This is my absolute favorite restaurant!! I am from Chicago, and I am a huge pizza snob, but this pizza is delicious! (oohh, along with Federal Pizza downtown too!)
After these mini sessions, I went to Bar Bianco, sat inside in the AC to cool down from our rather hot sessions, ordered a drink and the antipasto platter (so yummy!), and listened to one of my favorite musicians, Blaine Long, playing live inside (every Friday) while editing on my computer.
Seriously, if you've never been, stop by for dinner, or even a drink on your way to a Diamondbacks game. I love the feel of the entire area down there!
