Looking back on this warm summer Seattle morning family session at Discovery Park – it was all a dream.
A warm morning with great light is always the best in Seattle. That warm summer breeze before it’s miserably hot makes for the best photos. Those tender moments when your baby still sits still for a few.
At our family session we made our way all over Discovery Park. Starting near the beach, cruising by the lighthouse and ending up on the hillside bluff of Discovery Park in the shade. The rolling field into the bluff overlooking the puget sound arguably my favorite spot for photos. I was so stoked that Alex and Sophie chose to do their session here as it’s just around the corner from their neighborhood and Sophie’s favorite park growing up.
Discovery Park is nestled in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. Magnolia is across from Ballard. The entire area is a hidden gem.
I can not wait to capture more milestones with Sophie, Alex + Enzo & their family and I also can’t wait to document more lifestyle work at Discovery Park.
I’ll leave y’all with a few tips –
Parking can be BUSY on the weekend. Here a link to my favorite area to park
Wear neutral colors. There is such a wide variety of scenery to choose from. Woods, open fields, all kinds of trees, wildflowers in the summer, the beach, the bluff, buildings, porches YOU NAME IT.
Go to the restroom before you head to the park. There isn’t many around unless you park in the lower parking lots.
