A Winter Family Session at Point Defiance Park

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a couple thousand more times….and typically loudly…what can I say?! I just LOVE it when my friends, family, and former clients refer me to other families who are looking for professional portraits. When they trust me enough to refer me to friends it' means something. I appreciate that trust, more than you know!

When someone is so in love with their wedding portraits that they want others to experience that joy it makes all the long hours and time and money spent in classes and practice - all the failed attempts that eventually lead to successes, everything…it’s all worth it!

Machiko and her family met me for a fast, fun little session at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma. Our weather this January has been beyond phenomenal. We even broke a record I think with a 60 degree day…when does that happen here in the Rainy State? Never I tell ya, never!

We couldn’t have asked for a better day. The kids were shy at first, as kids tend to be, but they warmed up quickly to the camera and we got some really wonderful, candid and posed photographs. Point Defiance Park is everything you could want for a session. There are ponds, blossoming trees, bridges, wildlife, greenery, a rose garden. It’s the perfect location for a family session.
