Sunset Beach Family Session in Washougal!
Welcome to the Morris Family’s sunset photo session!
Many of you may not know, but this is my husband’s younger brother, Joshua, and his beautiful family! His wife, Elizabeth, is my middle sons piano instructor! You can find her studio information HERE.
I look forward to this session each year! It is fun for me to meet with Elizabeth over coffee, and plan their session out! We discuss the location and time of day, and also what colors and themes she would like for the year.
Elizabeth prints out her images in large canvases each year, so she can see the progression of growth in her children. I love how she matches the clothing choices in her images to the decor in her home!
In these particular images, we decided to do a water theme and a sunset photo session. She often has a water theme for her images, but this time we wanted to be IN the water! We chose Clark Lewis Beach in Washougal, and the results were gorgeous! The children loved playing in the water, and I like how we were able to capture them in their element playing together. Joshua brought along ice cream and cones for the family, so we were able to get some picnic-style images on the beach as well.
For her wardrobe choice this year, we planned it around her gown. She chose a gown from my studio wardrobe, and it came from The House of Flynn. I love the movement of the gown, how flowy and romantic it is with the wrap-around skirt and sweetheart neckline. It suited Elizabeth perfectly for her sunset beach session. The colors were stunning for this time of year as well, they were rich and vibrant, just like a sunset at the end of summer. I love how Elizabeth works with me to coordinate her colors. Everyone isn’t wearing the same item, but their colors each pull from her gown to complete a unified look for her images.
We always try and get some images of just Joshua and Elizabeth, too. She hangs those portraits up in her bedroom each year. I love the connection these two have with each other. It’s so fun to capture!
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about Joshua and Elizabeth’s family session from 2018!
Be looking for their 2019 waterfall family session coming up soon!
