In the midst of a busy wedding season, I have finally sat down to blog about this incredible family- my brother, sister-in-law, niece and my nephew on the way!! Joel and I booked our flights to Washington before we even knew my sister-in-law was pregnant. And as if it were meant to be, we arrived in Tacoma one week before our nephew was born. We couldn’t have asked for better timing!!
I mentioned to my sister-in-law before our trip about doing a maternity photo shoot and as plans fell into place we ended up having a full family session on the beach of Ruston. Having dad and daughter at the session really made it complete! Believe it or not, this shoot was only 2 days before their baby boy was born!
The waterfront of Point Defiance in Tacoma, Washington never fails to wow me. We arrived at the beach just before sunset and took a few photos along the pebble beach and in the woods where golden light streamed through! My niece, as independent and adventurous as she is at only 17 months needed quite a bit of distraction to stay focused and free of fuss during the photos. Utmost thanks to the grandmas for making this happen! Plus, lots of walking always helps! ;)
What I love about these lifestyle sessions is capturing a new perspective on family- it’s different every time as every family is unique with their own perks and quirks. Being the one to freeze those special memories in time is such an awesome experience. I will certainly treasure these ones forever…
