Spiers Family in AZ

One of the best parts of Christmas is being able to spend time with family, especially those that we don't get to see very often. Even more fun is being able to take family pictures, which I did for Derek's sister, Alicia, and her family. 


There is a trail behind my in-law's house. Alicia and I enjoyed walking/running (well, probably more walking than running) each morning while we were there. I also thought it would be a great location for their family pictures. We scoped out the best locations as we walked and then dragged the whole family along when it was picture time. We all agreed the area near mile marker 1.25 was an excellent spot.


Here are a few favorites.


Enjoy.

Beautiful shots! I love the 4th one down. I have always wanted to visit Arizona.. I can't believe you are outside in t-shirts in the Winter! So lucky!

Lovely family - excellent pictures. I also find myself scoping out spots for photos when I walk (I don't run, the neighborhood is not ready for that - or me for that matter). Thanks for sharing these - I like the colors the family picked for their outfits.
