my favorite shooting locations!

Choosing a great location for your family pictures is so important, as sets the stage to tell your story!

 I really love locations that will compliment your family and make you the focal point!

I've photographed families all over the Seattle area, and have found these locations

to be the most consistent in providing beautiful backdrops to best tell your story! 

Time of day is also a factor to consider when you schedule your session!

I suggest scheduling as close to sunrise or sunset as possible to capture most flattering light no matter the weather!

Some locations photograph better than others during different times of the day,

so I have noted the most ideal time too book for best light at each location below!
