After photographing families on various beaches and farms over the past 6 years, I realized I wanted to try something a little different and become a Seattle Adventure Family Photographer. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful state! I wanted to showcase the beauty of our state with your family as the focal point. Because our state is so large, I decided to focus on one of the most beautiful park systems in the world: the Olympic National Park.
All of these sessions will require a bit of a drive, the scenes are 1000% worth the trek! The three main locations I have focused on are as follows:
Provides breathtaking mountain views. Many clients get there a bit early to hike and/or eat a picnic dinner before changing into photography clothes. The trail I like to use is not far off the parking lot- about a 10-15 minute walk so no serious hiking is required! If you choose to stay overnight after the session, you can camp (for the super adventurous) or the town of Port Angeles, WA is just at the bottom of the hill and you can find hotels and VRBO options.
It is harder to imagine a more perfect PNW beach than Ruby Beach. With Abbey Island providing a filter for the setting sun, it is easy to create amazing images. Ruby Beach is about 30 minutes outside the town of Forks, WA (yes, that Forks of Twilight fame). If you choose to stay overnight after your session, Forks offers some hotels & VRBO options.
This session spot includes Mt. Baker, rivers, lakes and lookouts all around the North Cascade Mountain Range.
This past year, I have discovered so many beautiful locations in Eastern Washington. There are hillsides, rivers, fields, deserts and the most gorgeous tones.
I love when I get the chance to head down to Oregon. Just like Washington, there are so many beautiful places to explore. Most of the locations I use are 2 hours or less away from downtown PDX.
