Between October and December of every year, we make the effort to take our new family pictures.
This year we decided we would go to two spots: The Mesa Arts Center and the Mesa Arizona Temple.
As we drove past the MAC, we discovered a local festival going on, with large numbers of people scattered throughout the area. While we were sad that we wouldn't have some fun backgrounds for our family pictures, we were excited to go the temple and feel the peace that permeates the grounds.
These are some of the fun pictures that we captured while we were there!
There were over 1000 shots when we finished...with more than 200 of our little 2 year old Lucky! (Any tips on how to get a 2 year old to look at the camera? I just kept taking multiple shots of him...a ton at a time, and finally ended up with some really fun ones.)
By the time we got to our family shots, we were all worn...and it was more difficult to get a great family shot.
