Howarth is a client favorite! It features trails, a sandy waterfront with large rocks and beachwood, railroad tracks often times including trains (in the background only) with and without graffiti, 3 unique sets of stairs and a walkway bridge.

This is a fun spot for lifestyle type portraits with small children, they have a nice larger play set and also a small spray/water area that is great for capturing those candid fun moments. They also have a green belt for more formal portraits. 

This location is very laid back and casual yet beautiful. It's a strip of antique stores that run along a riverfront trail, it has rustic brick walls, an area with a vintage shop front with two old doors, ivy on the walls and a rusted vintage tractor. So many options with this spot.

The river front is beautiful in the evening, it's a small strip of river which is wading depth and has a rocky expansive creek look. Super soft and sweet, great for summertime sessions!

A personal favorite of mine, the Mukilteo lighthouse is a serene historical lighthouse with a rocky coastline and a nice view of the water.

Nakashima Heritage Barn-  Arlington
Kayak Point Park- Stanwood

This historic barn is nestled up north in the valley and has beautiful views of the mountain ranges and evergreens in the background as well as a gorgeous large historic red barn which is in great shape. This location is along a trailhead and often has tall grass surrounding it.

Another gorgeous option for an ocean view session, this spot overlooks railways and also has some great distressed and weathered portions of an old pier.

Kerry Park -  Seattle
Gasworks Park -  Seattle

Kerry Park is the famous spot for the views of the Seattle skyline and Space needle, it offers a ledge lined with brick overlooking the city, a few interesting sculptures and a large stairway located just to the side which can be great for pictures.

Gasworks is another Seattle favorite, a more open and urban take on our beautiful city with fun and quirky colors and tall remnants of an old gas plant is sure to make for unique portraits.

This location offers gorgeous rows of trees, seasonal dahlias growing in large areas, a few parks, large old trees which are painted beautifully in the autumn and an elegant conservatory.

this popular park offers extraordinary views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. With wetlands, a short loop trail, Golden Gardens offers strolls along a rugged coastline, hikes through forest trails, and beautiful sandy beaches
