Its August in Phoenix and still 100+ degrees outside.  Most would consider this situation far from ideal for family photography.  In my opinion, it’s best not to drag kids (and husbands) far from home for an hour long photo session.  These photos were taken smack- dab in the middle of the neighborhood street .  At sunset.  Key word here  being “at sunset”.  This session proves that lighting is SO MUCH MORE important than location.
