These photos were taken on a not ideal-gloomy-rainy-gray-Seattle-day in quite literally, this family's backyard.
And I love these photos.
I love them because they show the dark sand and clouds and rain boots that are most definitely needed in the Northwest. I love them because I can still hear the dogs on the beach barking as they played fetch in the water. But most of all I love them because as I saw this family interact with each other while the salty wind blew their hair, I knew that what I was capturing was THEM. Their life. Their laughter. Their love. And gosh- it was just beautiful.
