Gilbert, Arizona Photographer, Gooding Family session

Gooding Family, Gilbert, Arizona Photographer

It was such a pleasure photographing all nineteen people from the Gooding Family. I was so excited when Barbara Gooding contacted me to tell me that she was coming down from Prescott to visit her father in Sun Lakes, Arizona, and that all of her kids were coming in town, and they all wanted to get together to do a large family photography session. These sessions are always so special, especially when parts of your family live in different states. I know her one daughter traveled all the way from Connecticut to visit. Each individual family within the large family of nineteen was simply beautiful, so kind, and fun.. All of the grandkids were all so well behaved, and very excited to have their photographs taken. I know the three older sisters below were super excited, as they attend private school and were excited to get photographs taken in “something other then their uniform”  Grandpa was especially excited to have all his children and grandkids togethers. We had fantastic lighting, and yummy warm yellow sun that day. Great backlighting, and bokeh, lots of color with the greens and yellows. Most of you who follow my work, that my style is and has always been very simply. I like simplicity, and for my subjects to be the main focal point when creating my photographs.   We  created some great gorgeous memories with my camera together this day. I hope they are ones that the Gooding family will be able to hold onto and cherish for a lifetime.

WELCOME

Hi there, I am Melissa. We moved to Arizona when I was five years old, so I consider myself a desert native. I am the mother of three wonderful children, a wife to an amazingly loving and extremely intelligent man, and a lover of animals. (We live on a small farm) I am the proud pet owner of a Chocolate Lab, miniature wiener dog, 26 chickens, 2 goats, a horse, and a miniature horse named Switch. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and 13 years ago I was able to form a successful small business doing what I love. I feel so blessed that God gave me this gift that I can pass along to others and bless them with.
