This first family photo is a classic, since it shows what being a family is really like: chaos and fun.
Most of the photos I like to catch are ones that show relationships and action. Even still, I want to get a traditional type portrait to throw in there as well. With the “running” ages, finding somewhere to hold them still is the key, whether it be in a swing or stuck on a rock.
Big brother is a big helper.
The dinosaur bones at Avery are awesome to climb on and play hide and go seek in.
Green grass begs for football practice.
The train is irresistible to climb.
This feels like a commercial for Avery Park in Corvallis. Moving onto the swings, more fun and giggles.
Finally, check out the Mary’s River behind the Parks and Rec. office, complete with plenty of rocks to throw and rope above a swimming hole.
