I was so excited when the Hall family reached out. They were visiting family in Washington for a brief time and we were able to squeeze in a family photo session while they were here, to celebrate their little one’s first birthday! The location they selected is one of my favorite spots in the Olympia area. I often have clients who travel quite a distance for this location because it is simply so wonderful! This hidden little riverbed is unique in that there is a rocky beach area and a sandy area. The water is lovely, and the sun sets just behind the tree line, creating gorgeous, golden light. Parking is convenient here, with a short, 5 minute walk to where I love to take photos. There is a playground nearby too, which means you can reward your little ones with some playtime after your session – a favorite strategy of mine for my own family photos. If your little ones enjoy the water and sand, this is an excellent location to consider for your family photos!
Thank you, Hall family, for allowing me to photograph you during your visit to Washington!
