I love autumn on Whidbey Island, the air is crisp, the leaves are turning warm hues, and there's such a sense of beauty when the seasons are right on the cusp of change.  I first met Kristen and Jason around this time last year for holiday photos,

he connection between mother and daughter is such a fiercely strong and powerful thing.  AJ reached out a few months ago to set up a session to surprise her mom with a portrait session. Willow is a photographer herself, and both of her daughters are artistic women, so it was such a wonderful experience to collaborate with a trio who brought so much creativity and beauty to the scene.

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.

Party of 6 | Whidbey Island Family Session | Fort Nugent Park

I love working with this family.  I first met Katy and Kyle when they had just brought their newborn twins home for an in-home lifestyle session.  This time we were able to connect again with their whole crew, and it was so adorable watching the big brothers love up on their siblings.  And when there's 4 kiddos, 2 of them super active, what better place to have a photo-shoot than at the park!

Last night's time behind the camera made me happy...and for so many reasons.  First off, it's beginning to feel like summer here on Whidbey.  I know, I know....we're just hitting spring now, but last night the sun was out, the breeze was just right, and the air was just cool enough to enjoy the warmth of a bonfire.  Being surrounded by the beauty of the PNW is therapeutic enough by itself, but paired with a day like yesterday....ahh, heaven.

Guys, it's a small, small world. We moved to Whidbey Island from Oklahoma this past summer, and part of the "settling in" process has been finding great people to help out with our twins while Kristopher is away and I have a session or other obligation.  And I'm gonna be honest...finding someone you trust with your kiddos is no easy thing!

It's October...in Washington State...and I had to kill a good 25 minutes with this couple because there was actually too much sun....whaaaattt?  I try to time these things out pretty well to give pictures that unbeatable "sunsety" glow, while making sure we have plenty of time to shoot.
