This beautiful family session took place at a dreamy mountain, which appropriately is named Dreamy Draw. Right in the middle of Phoenix, this beautiful mountain path is perfect for sunset family sessions. Phoenix is full of beautiful mountain area for photos, but if you are looking for central to North Phoenix area, this spot might just be the one!

Time of Day

As with most of my sessions, this one took places right as the sun was setting. Sunset sessions will provide the most flattering light for your photos. This is especially true in desert spots like this where the sky is very wide and open with little areas of shade.

Mountain Locations: Things To Know

With this spot and many mountain locations around the Valley there are a few things you should be aware of beforehand.

*there may be some mild hiking involved (you might want to bring an extra pair of shoes to walk in if wearing heels)

*some Valley trail heads required an additional permit to shoot there.

*Many mountain parks have limited parking, plan accordingly

*There is usually not much shade, so early morning or later evening sessions are best!

*Strollers generally will get in the way. keep them in the car.
