Maternity Photos at the Beach in the Pacific Northwest

Seattle Lifestyle Family Photographer

April 22nd, 2022

I first met this family in 2020 when their first daughter was born for a newborn session at their home. They were the last client I saw before the world shut down for Covid-19. Almost two years later, and we get to hang out again. This time to celebrate before their family grows three to four. 

We met in the early hours of the morning and waited in our cars until the rain passed. We decided to jump out and go for it for their Maternity photos at the beach. This Pacific Northwest Beach was an incredible find south of Seattle in Washington state. We are given a huge shallow water beach with shells and sea life, a wooded walk and huge driftwood pieces to climb on. I have photographed a couple of other families at this beach, and always find new details to photograph.

There is Ivy growing up a wall of rocks that can be accessed at low tide, and the green was popping after the rain. Mom was looking at her daughter as I focused on her belly, and the love and connection you can feel off camera is palpable. 

Connection is the most important thing to take away from my work.

I want you to FEEL something when you view my images. And this family always leans into their connections to each other.

I want you to play, to tickle and kiss. I want you to cuddle and laugh and if you want to be quiet and in your thoughts, do that too. I am here to witness your family and your connections and translate what I see into unique family photos of you and your loved ones.

Another awesome part about this location, the versatile backdrops. Not just a beach, but a wooded wildlife Sanctuary. We have such a wide range of options just from the walk to and from the parking lot.

Pro Tip: Bring a snack or two for yourself or young kids, there is only a single convenience store within 2 miles of the park's entrance. From personal experience from a known hangry person (me, it's me)!

You may have noticed that I have not named this park. I am going to keep it that way, as it is a Sanctuary for local wildlife. If you want to join me for maternity photos at the beach in a beautiful Pacific Northwest location, reach out!
