Discovery Park Family Session with JD and Jessica
This Discovery Park Family Session – which really was just these adorable twins, JD and Jessica – is a current favorite for me. I had never photographed at Discovery Park before and actually don’t have much experience with even going there. Just a field trip in high school – and that was a looooooooong time ago.
I love it when parents really seriously take the advice I give them on clothing selection. Michelle did exactly that and came with alternative clothes for each of the kids. We came up with the perfect combination right there in the parking lot 🙂 Without matching at all, these two coordinated perfectly. And for the setting, you cannot ask for more as a photographer.
Discovery Park is a bit difficult to get to – well not the park itself, but the lighthouse and beach. The parking is a LONG way away. Many people trek from the upper parking lot down to the lighthouse which is over a mile. On a warm evening, it’s a recipe for ruining your hair and clothes, especially for kids. I’m so grateful Randy was able to drive us out to the lighthouse and drop us off. And of course, picked us up. Saved us a lot of walking! Driving down with the family was a great opportunity to learn more about them and get the kids comfortable with me around.
We took full advantage of the light house, Puget Sound backdrop, driftwood and beach to get these beautiful portraits of the twins and finished up the session in a field with flowers and tall grasses. Jessica even had a ladybug land on her. I mean come on! How perfect is that?
Thank you to this gorgeous family and to the super fun kids who made my evening a delight for this Discovery Park Family Session.
