Little did we know that the trek up the mountain takes about 2 hours from Tacoma. It starts at 400 feet above sea level and ends at 5,400 feet above sea level!!! Oh and did I mention that there was no cell service?! So I just wandered around holding up my camera till this gorgeous little family approached me. Needless to say, it was a session to remember. One of my favorites of the whole year. They could have been stressed, but they weren’t. They were relaxed, sweet, easy going and fun!! I just loved these guys.
When Kristina first emailed me she said that her family had recently moved here from the east coast and that they wanted me to suggest a gorgeous PNW outdoor location. I threw out my usual spots in and around Tacoma, then I added that the wildflowers at Mt. Rainier are beautiful this time of year (this was late August). I didn’t think she’d pick that option, but figured if she did it would be a session to remember. Well, clearly this is an adventurous family, because Kristina said “sure!” to the session at the top of Mt. Rainier.
