Whidbey Island is gorgeous. It's rugged, dynamic and free. The turquoise waters envelope us, and snow capped mountains stand tall in the distance, even in summer. So when this darling family contacted me to ask about a session while visiting Washington from their home in California, I knew the scenery here would not disappoint. We met at Deception Pass and explored the coves, beaches and trails together. Their two daughters were the stars of the show, sharing huge smiles, giggles and laughter. Family sessions area always the most fun when you're not worried about just "smiling for the camera" but just enjoying the time together as a unit. Personalities shine through and emotions are genuine, and watching these four interact was just a total joy! So sweet, adventurous and loving towards each other...thank you for trusting me with your photos, W family!
