Tempe Family Photography | The Sowders Family

As I stood in the drizzling rain waiting for this darling family to arrive, Mr. Radberry, the owner of old Merlott’s Gas Station gave me the history on the site. This location is the oldest standing gas station/garage in the valley and was a running pump well into the late 70’s. It is located on Dorsey and Orange in Tempe, AZ and believe it or not, Orange was the main drag leading to Mesa from Tempe! Mr. Radberry acquired it after it exchanged hands a few times. He even has one of the original pumps stashed in the garage somewhere… If you check out the concrete around the pump, Mrs. Merlott has her name in the cement with a date, dating back to 1946! Mr. Radberry, the current owner had been affiliated with the garage since around the 70’s and acquired it in the 90’s sometime. There’s such little history in the valley it’s kinda sweet to hear the story.

Now on to this beautiful family that was so full of energy and pure adorableness, is that a word? I had a blast chasing these girls around in the rain and really feel that these images captured their personalities to a tee in this Tempe family photography session!
