Great Places to Take the Best Family Picture Locations in Yakima Valley Area
Make your family photos memorable now and in the coming year! Say cheese!
A friend of mine is starting up her photography business and she asked me if she could use my daughter and me as test subjects. I am never one to turn down helping out a photographer if they need some cheesy smiles from me to test their lights and filters.
My father was a photographer when I was a teen. He had his own photography studio in downtown Nashville for a few years (Cosby Studio). He always made me sit on a stool and give fake smiles as he tested out his lighting and three million camera lenses. He would often be late picking me up from middle school because he would get wrapped up in developing photos for his customers.
That's right, he would DEVELOP the film by hand.
In this age of cell phone cameras and such, today's new generations wouldn't know a thing about developing film or dropping off your disposable cameras to Walgreens or Super X Drugs to get them developed and printed out.
Does anybody besides me remember SuperX Drugs?
I thought of a handy list of unique and unconventional places you might want to take your upcoming outdoor family portraits. Some of these you'll have to wait until the spring and summer months before you can use them for their beauty, but others you can head off to right now and take some great family pics.
