The greatest gift I’ve received as a photographer is the ability to travel around the world to photograph fascinating people. This particular family, photographed outside of the Gig Harbor area of Tacoma, Washington, have been known by me for over six years. It was both a pleasure and and honor to come photograph them in such a beautiful location.
Our luck would have it that although it was a park next to the kids’ school, it would also rain nearly the whole day. Such is the weather in the Seattle/Tacoma area, however, and the children were great sports despite soggy logs and wet shoes!
