As a family photographer in the Pacific Northwest, it’s inevitable (and likely, this time of year!) that I need to work my sessions around the rain. While I will always love working outside, I get equally excited about lifestyle family photos right at home. To me, photos should be markers of our favorite memories…riding bikes with our kiddos, watching them read books and jump on the bed, and baking cookies together. While I still aim to get the family photo with everyone smiling at the camera, I hope to do more candid sessions like this in the future, as I find them so heartwarming and truly representative of our lives with our children.
