Upon moving to Whidbey Island, I was eager to get behind the camera again. New location, change in light, and the new opportunity to make lasting connections with my clients here. I put out a giveaway contest before we even arrived to Whidbey so I could get started right away. Once the winner was picked, we were able to start planning. One of the first things I did here was go location scouting. I am thankful for the friendships Ive made with other photographers so they directed me to locations I might like. Rosario Beach was one of them that I hoped would be a good spot for future sessions.. and I was right!
Learning the light in a new location is fun, as a photographer it is my job to know lighting and use it to my advantage. I am so thankful for this family as they let me use them for practice here and moved around with me as I said, “no here.. well maybe here… so thats weird light across you, lets move” I am learning the terrian here, and will probably write a follow up blog to all my clients on how to prep for your session on Whidbey Island and the Pacific North West.
I had so much fun with this family though! At Rosario Beach, we went up to an overlook area and then back down to the beach for sunset, and the best part our little one with us was excellent the entire time. I always say that kids run the show, so I am thankful that we kept things interesting to keep her attention 🙂
I can not wait to explore and photograph more here! I was in heaven the first time I crossed over the bridge to Whidbey Island, and I can only imagine that the rest of our time here will be nothing less than fantastic! There is so much to see and do, and for all you photographers, its a haven of lushious trees and gorgeous light. I am glad that I arrived here in the summer to experience it!
