This most lovely family drove all the way from Eastern Washington to meet me at the coast for a Ruby Beach family session! The crazy thing about the coast in the summer is that on the drive out there, it can be totally sunny up to 5 miles from the coast and then suddenly you enter the cloud bank. This weather makes it so hard to predict, which is extra tricky because everyone is driving a long way to get there.
But this group were such good sports-they did not mind the grey! And the other crazy thing about the coast is that it is gorgeous in sun and gorgeous in cloud. As you can see throughout these images, most of the session we spent playing! Those are my favorite moments: jumping, throwing rocks in the sea, twirling in tiny waves…those moments are precious to me (and hopefully to mom and dad).
This family told me the best thing I can hear as feedback from clients- that they had FUN. Because there are two parts to a session: 1. The images- I aim to make them good 2. The experience- I aim to make it fun. When you look at them, I want to you remember the fun, no the stress or the frustration.
