Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Family Portraits | The H Family

On the very last day of the 2010 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, Justin and I joined a familiar family for a springtime portrait session. This was our third shoot with these kids and their parents (in addition to their 2009 summertime and holiday sessions), but this time they were joined by an auntie, an uncle, and a very young cousin. The sunny day (one of the few we’ve had this spring) made for lovely, rich colors, but the ground was still splashed with puddles.

Little Rowan, the oldest of the girls, was torn between jumping in as many as possible and maintaining her pristine, princessy dress. It didn’t take her long to decide that being a princess was overrated. She completely muddied her tights… and then decided that she REALLY wanted to be a princess and broke down in tears at the state of her shoes. So cute and hilarious!

This was one of our biggest family portrait sessions so far, and the one with the most kids under the age of three to date. A photographic challenge alleviated just a bit by the fact that two of the three children knew us from previous shoots… but a challenge nevertheless! We all made the most of the sunny day and got some lovely photographs we hope they’ll treasure forever. Enjoy!
