Riparian Preserve Family Photos // Alvarez Fam // Gilbert, AZ

I got to spend time Alvarez fam again for these Riparian Preserve family photos in Gilbert, Arizona! After going to Sedona with Jen and Jeff for their engagement session, then to Cancun for their wedding and meeting the whole fam, I love every chance I get with these lovely humans.

My advice when taking photos with kids: relax! They feed off your energy, and if you’re stressed, they’ll be stressed. And then you’ll be more stressed because you were hoping for photos of them smiling. The Alvarez family was willing to be silly and go with the flow. Taking snack breaks, swinging him around over and over and over, and when he didn’t want to take any more pictures, just wanted to walk around carrying a blanket? Let him carry the blanket around!
