We started shooting early on Alki Beach. I asked if it was okay to break the session up and head to a tiny little viewpoint West Seattle park just up the road. The beach is pretty bright for shooting if your not there for sunrise or sunset. This way the family session had both the lovely beach and the more woodsy feels that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. West Seattle is full of location ideas like this, just ask! Lincoln Park and Lowman Beach are an example of two spots just a minute from each other, and add variety to your family session.
