When I was contacted about shooting an extended family session up in the Seattle area, I couldn’t pass up the chance to make a trip north! Especially when I found out we’d be shooting in the cherry blossoms AND that this family had yet to have a formal family portrait since the birth of their 6 year old grandchild! For anyone who knows me, you know family photos are SO important to me. I had to do this session. They needed images of that beautiful granddaughter on their walls like, YESTERDAY! Haha! This wasn’t a typical session for me, but this isn’t your typical family either. They were fun and engaging and full of life! And can I also add very well dressed? When I saw how wonderfully coordinated they were without being overly “matched,” I was beside myself! I truly enjoyed our time spent together, despite the soggy ground and constant rain. I’m also very happy that we found blooming trees at Fairwood Golf and Country Club. I know that was important to them! The grounds were absolutely beautiful and a perfect setting for this wonderful family.
Brrrr….this was a damp and chilly session! Sun would’ve been a miracle, so we were at least hoping for a break in the rain for our session…NO such luck! Thank goodness for diehard Washingtonians. It was cold and a bit miserable, but they were not the slightest bit put out by the constant drizzle! Enough talk…here is a little peek at their session this past Sunday! Enjoy!
And my goodness. Her energy and laughter were infectious!! It didn’t take long for her to warm up to the camera Such a doll.
