Family Session at Squalicum Beach

Details: First birthday family photography at Squalicum Beach in Bellingham, WA

You only turn one once. None of us remember our own first birthday, but we remember our children’s. Putting together a party for my own daughter Eden’s first birthday was a ton of work (most credit goes to my wife) but you can’t skip your child’s first birthday party! The next several birthdays? not so important. But the first is a big one!

I went to this guy’s first birthday party and then a few days later photographed him and his parents at Squalicum Beach in Bellingham. What a sunset! Happy birthday bud!

I love doing family photography at Squalicum Beach because you can get the beach, trees, pier, and fields all in one session. The sun sets at the perfect angle to shine through the big pier and create some awesome sunstars in photographs, and bathe everyone in a golden light. And it’s right in town, so we don’t even have to drive very far!
