The Farm at Agritopia Family Photos
I have a confession to make. When I first scout out a location for family photos in Gilbert, Chandler, or anywhere in the Phoenix metro area, it is not always love at first sight. Sometimes my creative eye is tired, or off duty, or just stuck. Sometimes I think a location is nothing special only to visit it again months later and realize how wrong I was. I visited the Farm at Agritopia a handful of times before I saw the magic and fell in love with it, and I am so glad that I did! This sweet family braved a crazy warm and humid sunrise session to be the first to try it out with me. And I have to tell you, 6:30am – this Mama had her kiddos on time and camera ready at 6:30am!
The Farm at Agritopia is a family owned community farm, wedding venue, restaurant, coffee shop, maker’s space, and more all rolled into one. It has beautiful archways built with grape vines, olive trees, palms, an orchard of fruit trees, vintage buildings, and more. So fun fun stuff here!! It is also a little exclusive, the farm asks photographers to make a contribution to the farm foundation in exchange for use of the space, so it tends to be less crowded than some of the other family photo hot spots.
You’ll notice as you scroll though these favorites from their session, that there are quite a few shots which are not posed smiles straight at the camera. My favorite shots from every session end up being the ones you were not ready for. The giggles, the hugs and kisses, the tickles when Mom is trying to get you to smile, the little sister tugging on her brother when he doesn’t want to hold hands, Mom and Dad sharing a laugh. These are my favorite because they tell your story. They show the connection between you, give a glimpse into your relationships, show your spunky little personality (or your phase of not wanting to take pictures!). THESE are memories. Portraits are amazing and beautiful and I hope that you put them on your wall and cherish them, but those memories are going to last you a lifetime. ❤️
Want to make some magic of your own at this amazing location? This session was sunrise, but sunset is equally amazing. Don’t procrastinate too long in booking those Fall family photos, there are only 150 days left until Christmas! Let’s Book It!
