Low Tide Family Photos | Seattle Family Photographer Alec Mills - Alec Mills Photography

Family Photo Session at Low-Tide

Playful + Full of Wonder: Low Tide Sessions

We schedule our sessions when the tide is at its lowest.

Barefoot and ready to discover.

There are only two weekends this summer where low-tide aligns with the ideal time of day to have your family photos taken.

This Seattle family hit the jackpot with a sunrise and low tide combo.

Read below to get a feel for our morning and spend a moment with the images we created of their family.

Two years ago, I met a family who filled my inspiration bucket. That sounds silly I know. But, woah. That morning was something special. The mama, a stunning mother of 3, is a photographer friend on the Kitsap Peninsula. We had been conversing on-line and via email for a little while and this was the first time we had met in person. We connected immediately, and I value her friendship immensely.

We met at Fay Bainbridge Park on Bainbridge Island, on a surprisingly sunny April morning. The first thing we did? Took off all our shoes and went straight down to the water to play!

My absolute favorite thing about planning for the low-tide during your family photo session?? Using that low low water to create reflections… there is a stillness and beauty to the water that pulls at my emotional heart strings… and this gets me every. single. time! However, you may be surprised at how close my camera comes to the water to get these shots.

If you want to create these type of images for your family, reach out now to grab one of only 4 Low-Tide sessions this summer. 

I cannot wait to create with you!


Create a special experience for your family.
