The Sailer Family at Lake Padden, Bellingham, Washington

Who: The Sailer Family

What: Family portraits

When: Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Where: Lake Padden

I did family portraits for the Sailer family back in fall 2016. They emailed that they were going to be visiting Bellingham and wanted to do some more portraits. During our first session we got a lot of greater candid images of the kids playing and having fun, so we decided to focus almost entirely on that this time.

My favorite family sessions are ones where we really let the kids and parents just enjoy spending time together. These end up as some of the best images – just little moments at one point in kids’ lives. Their mom brought a basket of new books to give them, which they loved. It was fun to capture some images of the whole family reading together in the park.
