If you live in the PNW, you know winter can be long and dark. Washington does in fact get a lot of rain. The rumors are true. We learn to love it though, and work our way around it. Being a photographer during the winter in Washington can be a challenge. Having clients that trust me, and roll with it makes all the difference though. This session was scheduled to take place at a park in Bellingham, WA, but the park was closed due to flooding. So we improvised and went to the local coffee shop. Woods coffee has all the PNW vibes, and great drinks (in case you were wondering), and it was the perfect place for a cozy lifestyle session with this sweet family. Grandma requested photos together for Christmas, and I love that they celebrated moments over "stuff". If your curious what a moments over "Stuff" gift looks like, scroll on down!
