Spring Mini’s | Lake Wilderness Arboretum

Spring is here, and truth be told, it’s one of my favorite seasons!! I just love watching things come back to life. The trees start to turn green again, the flowers blossom, gorgeous colors everywhere! We are lucky enough to live in an area that offers so much beauty. And just down the street from me, is the Lake Wilderness Arboretum, which is one of my favorite places to shoot!! So with that, I’m offering an evening of Spring Mini sessions!! These will be short & sweet, but will give you an opportunity to get a few quick family pictures. Or, you could use these as “Mom + Me” sessions for Mother’s Day, grab some updated shots of the kids, or give one as a gift!

Sunset Family Session | Seattle Area Photographer

I love sunset sessions! There is something so magical about the warm, soft lighting in the evening on a sunny day. These past few weekends have been gorgeous in the Pacific Northwest, and were packed with family shoots. I’ve found a location nearby that I just can’t get enough of, it’s definitely my new go-to.
