Family Session | Gonzalez-Cress clan

We're still in the midst of our sunny Southwest vacation, but thanks to the magic of the interwebs, we wrote this post up a few days before we left. We hope you enjoy it! See you next week!


When you're meeting strangers for a photo shoot, it can sometimes feel like a blind date. "Here's my phone number. I'm wearing jeans + a floral top. See you soon!" 

I met these four at the Ballard Locks in the early days of September. I stood outside the entrance to the Locks for a few minutes before I decided to give Juanita a quick text, letting her know I had arrived. Within minutes, I hear a happy "Amanda!" and look up to find Juanita and their two amazing kids standing not 15 feet away from me! Once Dan found a parking spot and joined us, we wandered into the gardens for an afternoon of chatting and picture taking. 

Thanks for a wonderful afternoon, Gonzalez-Cress clan! I'm looking forward to seeing these prints line your walls soon!


We're now booking portrait sessions for 2014. Give us a shout if you're looking for wintery photo goodness.
