It was a rainy Saturday, and three high desert natives piled into a car and
drove, er, floated onto Vashon Island. Don’t worry, this isn’t the beginning of a B horror movie, quite the opposite, it’s the beginning of one of my favorite family sessions to date. I have known Steph for several years via the magic of the internet. She and Travis recently moved to the area earlier this year from Utah, I was thrilled to have a new friend in real life- and even more thrilled that she asked me to capture this milestone for their family. Steph and Travis are expecting their first baby next month. I loved getting to document them together, pre-baby, and I am so excited about getting to meet the new member of the family (on the outside) sometime next month!
Once we landed on the other side of the water, we drove a bit until we found a dead end road off the main drag. I think I am going to start to bring Steph with me on all my shoots; she has an amazing eye for locations! With her navigating, and her sweetheart at the wheel, we found this amazing little spot to take these photos. (How have I NOT been to Vashon yet?!) A huge thank you again to Steph and “Stink-Eye”-Travis for getting out in the rain, for riding the ferry, and for allowing me to photograph you together during this really special time. I can’t wait to see the THREE of you soon!
