The timing of this post isn’t exactly right, considering it’s the absolute dead of winter and I only shoot family sessions from May-October, BUT; I just didn’t want to forget to share this session. I’ve wanted to shoot at this location for quite some time and knew that my friend and favorite client Lindsay’s family would be the perfect adventurous type to fit! We knew that heading to the Oregon coast for photos means you have to be ok with the darker, moodier feel… But considering as I’ve shot plenty of sun-drenched family images for her in years past, it was a great change of pace to keep things fresh. We chose a day where the tide was low later in the day (something we forget about some locations on the coast, they are inaccessible during high tides) and went for it.
I’d be lying if I said the session was easy… The rocks are slippery and the wind is not the warmest. That being said, I love these images and would prefer this style for my own family. Now that I know the ropes of this location I’m dying to try out more. Would love to come back here for engagement or couples session in particular.
These sessions fill up really quickly, usually with families who I have photographed babies for in years past. I photographed both these little ones as newborns as well! So inquire early for summer sessions – there’s lots of Pacific Northwest we can explore 🙂
The session itself is like the location- gritty + raw + emotional- I couldn’t love it more <3
