I have said it before and I will say again- I absolutely love when a family is willing to drive down miles long dirt roads to meet in my gorgeous wild places. For me as a creative, shooting in brand new places is the very best thing for my soul. Extra props need to be given to this mama who hiked in heels! She is a badass trooper.
A lot of times, parents are very worried about little ones up late in the evening for a session. While there are occasional moments of fussiness, every feels good out in the crisp mountain air surrounded by beautiful views.
We *almost* always see some sort of wildlife- in this case, a deer prancing through the sunset meadows.
Snuggly parent photos matter too!
And I insist my mamas get a solo, playful shot of just themselves.
Almost all of my adventure sessions are within 2-3 hours of Seattle. A good expectation is a drive, a dirt road + a hike! But those three things lead us to some of the most beautiful places in the PNW.
