We met up with Lindsey and a couple of her family members at the Tempe Beach Park. Lindsey had seen some other sessions we’d done there and she fell in love with that location! We started out at the park to get some of the shots she knew she wanted and moved up to the place she was most excited about… the railroad tracks. Lucky for her, at this point we were still doing sessions on the railroad tracks. We have since found out that it’s illegal and photographers are starting to get fined for it! A bunch of distracted people hanging out on active tracks with killer trains speeding towards them is illegal?! Go figure!For all of you who are so disappointed to hear this news… don’t worry, we’re in search of some INACTIVE tracks near our usual locations so that we can still get that look for you!
So after the life-threatening railroad stunt, we decided to take them on a hike. A pretty LONG hike! Scottie was totally excited to get them down to Mill Ave. and we underestimated the distance between the park and the back alleyways he had in mind. So hats off to our good sports who trusted us enough to make the trek over there! I think they were happy they did when they saw some of the street shots he got with Lindsey on the corner of 5th and Mill with cars whizzing behind her. I think I can say they were pretty impressive without being arrogant… after all, I was just a human light stand for those pictures!
Thanks again to Lindsey and family for working well with us and for making our photo session a fun time for all!
