This night goes down as one of my favorites of my photography career. I have known this mama since middle school and when I said I had the idea of a mama in a pretty dress loving on her girls during sunset in the Olympic National Park, she was down. She went to the mall and found a perfect, sparkly dress! The thing about shooting the mountains is that you don’t do it because it is easy. You do it because you have a vision or you share in my vision for creating portraits against a phenomenally beautiful backdrop.
Olympic National Park is not very close to anyone. Luckily, this mama has family in Sequim, which is pretty close. I really recommend that people arrange to stay the night in a nearby town after the session. There are many cute places to choose from! During the summer time, these sessions start around 7-8pm. Other families have pajamas all packed up and let kiddos sleep on the way home. The bottom line is that for every family, the trek has been worth it. We are so lucky to live so close to such beauty.
