Just the Two of Us – Mom & Me Family Session

After discovering that the original park we wanted for this session had closed off access to their docks, we had to decide on the spot what to do. Mom wanted a little bit of beach and a little bit of fields so we headed to Joseph Whidbey State Park. Everything started out great, until our trail was longer than expected and I got a little turned around. With the sun and warm weather, both mom & I’s allergies began to chime in and so we quickly headed out of the fields were in. We headed to the beach to find the tide was in. This left us with little to no sand. But we made the best of it and got some great images.

Sand, Sun & Lots of Fun – Sibling Session

These girls may look familiar to you. I have been photographing them all since the eldest was just 9 months old. Their personalities are so different and they seem to change every year. This year, mom decided to come in a little earlier in the year to take her annual portraits. We took advantage of the warm weather and clear skies here on Whidbey. The youngest little one did what her instincts told her to do once she saw trails and freedom – she ran. Her sisters tried to grab and hold her, but I told them to just let her go. I’ve been photographing children for the last 11 years so I always have a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to runaways. Soon after I gave the older girls instructions on what to do, the littlest one ran right over and got in the frame as needed.

We ended the evening playing the sand, climbing trees, throwing rocks into the water, running back and forth and the girls also dipped their feet in the water. We watched the sun set together and just took in all the beauty that our island has to offer. It was a great evening!

Summer Family Fun – Lavender Mini Session

This was my last Lavender session for the season. It’s been a fun season and I look forward to doing these again next year. Big thanks to the Lavender Wind Farm for allowing me to do these. These kids were a delightful and energetic bunch which kept their moms and I on our toes. Three of them are siblings and they were joined by their cousin. So in the first image shown here, the cousin is the very left holding the littlest one. Once we got the boring group poses done, they went into running, jumping (on each other) and just having fun. It was a blast and a great finish for the season of purple.
