Chambers Bay Family Portraits
These family portraits at Chambers Bay made the most of a super windy day! This family of six is so very special to me. Two of the kids have been on my AHP Senior Model Team: Andreá, Class of 2020, and Baelina, Class of 2021. I have known this awesome family for a few years now, and they are such a wonderful, creative, and welcoming group. They have a beautiful home in Tacoma, complete with chickens and ducks. They are such a warm and loving family, and I am so excited to share more from their fun portrait session in Tacoma.
Show Off Your Family
I am all about family portrait sessions that show off who you are and celebrate your family dynamic. Part of what takes family portraits from just okay to absolutely incredible is when the family members are not afraid to be themselves. This sweet family had so much fun with each other and were completely themselves throughout the whole portrait session! Mom even jumped on her son’s back (something they do a lot!) and it made for a bunch of fun, candid portraits. I always tell my clients not to be shy, and my goal is to make them feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole session.
Picnic at Chambers Bay
Chambers Bay is an awesome location. It has so much variety, plus gorgeous water views! This sweet family loves having picnics here in the summer, which is how they picked this spot for their family portrait session. I simply love that the location had meaning to them as a family and that they were familiar with the area. There are so many places to sit, lean, and explore. And we brought along a huge picnic blanket to show this family in their element.
What to Wear for Family Portraits
Chambers Bay is a fun, rustic location with fields of grass, concrete structures, and gravel pathways. This family chose to glam it up when it came to choosing outfits for their outdoor portraits. They all wore similar fancy outfits, with the ladies in cute dresses, pants, and jumpsuits. The men looked handsome in short-sleeve button-ups and tailored pants.
It’s so much fun seeing the colors that my families choose for their portrait sessions. I recommend selecting different colors from the same palette, as this gives everyone a cohesive look without wearing the same things. This fun family of six opted for shades of blue, brown, and rust orange. The earthy color palette looked beautiful with the grassy fields and cloudy blue sky.
