Summers in Phoenix: A Weekend Spent Finding Inspiration in the Heat

Summers in Phoenix:  A Weekend Spent Finding Inspiration in the Heat

By: Natalie Wiseman Wheeler of Act Naturally Photography

It’s no secret that summers in Phoenix are pretty brutal. The heat makes shooting outside sound anything but desirable. I have found myself picking up my camera very infrequently, which was really starting to bog down my creative spirit. This past weekend, I made it a point to take my camera along to document the long weekend. I was determined to find inspiration despite the high temperatures. It turned out I was inundated by inspiration, in the form of a friend’s new puppy (a goldendoodle, isn’t she cuuuute!!?), kids playing in the yard, swimming, popsicles, and finally a visit to one of our favorite Phoenix restaurants, The Yard / Culinary Dropout.
