Point Defiance with the Dickson Family ~ Tacoma Family Photographer

Just in time for the unmistakable arrival of fall, I had the honor of meeting and photographing the Dickson Family at Tacoma's beautiful Point Defiance Park.  For those of you who have been there before, you know how dramatic and enveloping this landscape can be.  For our shoot, we chose a colorful basin of fallen leaves, a lush evergreen-lined trail, and a Puget Sound overlook at the "golden hour" of the afternoon.  All three settings were lovely, and reminded me all the more of why I love being a photographer in Western Washington.

Vanessa and Doug and their sweet little Harlan were a breeze to photograph.  And not only were they easy-going, they were enthusiastic about getting great shots (which I always appreciate).  Toward the end, as we were chasing the afternoon light, they were even game to pose standing on a picnic table so that we could avoid having a pesky chain-link fence in the background.  Now, that's the kind of commitment to the cause that I like in a client!

Scroll down for a peek at their session, and click on any photo to see it larger.  Enjoy!

This little boy has so much love directed at him!

Some of my favorite shots in most family sessions are taken when parents and children are just interacting as they normally would, with no interference from me.

We finally got him smiling!

I just LOVE this light.  (And the love in the photo, too!)

What a sweet family, am I right?  Vanessa and Doug, I am so glad to have met you guys, and I hope these photos are a blessing to you for years to come!  :)
