Nichols Family | Beach Family Session

One of my oldest and dearest friends Mandy who I lovingly call by her maiden name, “Nichols” called me up to tell me her nieces would be in Seattle visiting all the way from Indiana for a few days. I was SO excited when she asked me to photograph a family session for them!! This family is near and dear to my hearts and we had so much fun running around on the beach! Mandy lives in the Fremont area of Seattle and her sister Molly lives super close in Ballard (one of my FAVORITE Seattle neighborhoods) and, after talking about possible locations we settled on Golden Gardens because it was SO close to Molly and Mandy’s houses.

We parked and walked down to the beach. It may not look like it in the photos but it was a popular place and there were lots of people around! The weather teased us a little, the sun went and hid behind the clouds during our entire session but I totally dig the overcast vibe in photos and also we were in SEATTLE so we totally rocked the genuine Pacific Northwest gray sky. I’ll take an overcast day minus the wind and rain any day! After we finished up, the kids played out on the playground and I headed back to Anacortes for the night. The visit was short and sweet. I love this family so much and they are some of my favorite people to have in front of my lens.
