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.

A Little More Green Please – Lavender Mini Family Session

Most of the lavender had been harvested at the Lavender Wind Farm in Coupeville since it’s close to the end of the season, but there were a still a few rows available for my last two sessions there. This lovely family requested to have more “green” than purple. And so we headed to the harvested area where there were a few stems of purple on each bushel. Just enough to give a little bit of purple, but not too much.

I have been photographing this family annually for years. Since the first pregnancy, each newborn and first birthday. They are one of my favorite families that I look forward to seeing every year. Well, last year was skipped. We all just got too busy and never got to get it done. But not this year! Mom & dad took advantage of the warm weather and the beautiful fields. As always, the kids were great. As they get older, each personality comes out more and more. Lots of silly faces along with smiles. And of course, they knew when they were done. It was a lot of fun though!

Sweet Sisters – Lavender Mini Session

The littlest sister was a little too young for our Bathing Beauties set, so mom opted for a simple session in the Lavender field. We had had a streak of very hot days here on our island. So we had to wait one extra day for the weather to cool a bit more before we headed out to the field. This gave the bees a chance to do their pollinating thing and then go to sleep while we walked throughout the field. We didn't bother them and they didn't bother us. It did get chilly fast so we had to speed things a bit. The littlest one hung on as long as she could but after about 30 minutes, she was ready to be cuddled and warm. So we finished up and everyone went home to get pj's on and stay warm. It was a great evening!
