Consider a Family Photo in Western Wear During Prescott Frontier Days

Jun 4, 2018

Let Aris Affairs Photography create a memorable Western wear family photo in PrescottJuly is just around the corner, and in Prescott that means it’s rodeo time. During Prescott Frontier Days everyone brings out their western wear and dresses like a cowboy for a week or so. If you were raised in the Southwest, chances are good that there is a photo of you as a child dressed in western wear at 5 – 8 years old. Normally this includes a cowboy hat, boots, a vest, jeans or a fringed skirt and maybe even a toy six-shooter. In some of these photos, you’re actually sitting on a pony. Aris Affairs Photography would like to suggest that a family photo session with everyone in their western gear can make a memory for life.

  • Western wear is classic – it’s been around for nearly 200 years. It remains a favorite of children and octogenarians alike, and especially during Prescott Frontier Days. You can see it everywhere. Western wear is a style of dressing rooted in the 19th Century American west. Within the genre are whispers of Spanish conquistadors, American Indians, gold miners, cowboys, and even the hillbillies of the deep south.
  • One of the fun things about Western wear is its longevity; it’s all classic, all the time. A fringed suede skirt never goes out of style. Turquoise jewelry or a silver belt buckle can become heirlooms. Cowboy boots can be anything from plain work boots to finely tooled dress boots, but they are all designed to last.
  • And then there’s the cowboy hat that seems to define “western wear” in the minds of many people. It can be a “fine” beaver pelt or a simple straw hat. Either way, when you pair it with a pair of blue jeans you become a part of western tradition and a western “attitude”.

Why not take the opportunity to make a special, unique family memory while you’re all decked out in your western wear this summer and enjoying the rodeo in Prescott. Call Aris Affairs Photography to schedule your mini family shoot at 928-642-4049.
