Summer Family Photos in Seattle

Family Sessions

Summer is a beautiful time for family photos. The long days filled with sunshine, bright colors, and warm weather create the perfect backdrop for beautiful family memories. As a Seattle family photographer specializing in candid lifestyle moments, I love the effortless joy that Summer brings to family photoshoots. Let’s dive into why Summer family photos could be your season and how to make the most of it.

Summer is a beautiful time for family photos

One of the best things about summer family photos in Seattle is the abundance of natural light. The sun stays up longer, giving us plenty of time to capture those golden hour shots. This soft, warm light adds a dreamy quality to photos, making everyone look beautiful. If you have smaller kids and are worried about keeping them up past their bedtime, not to worry. I’m comfortable taking photos in the earlier hours too!

Fun Activities for Summer Photos

Summer is the season for outdoor adventures, perfect for summer family photos. Family photoshoots can include fun activities like picnics, beach outings, or hikes. For this family session, my client decided to put together a tiny blanket picnic activity for her little girl. She knew that it would keep her engaged and comfortable which allowed me to capture some sweet mother and daughter connection.

Light and Breezy Wardrobe Choices

Summer family photos in Seattle are all about light and breezy outfits. Think flowy dresses, shorts, and comfortable tees. These casual, stylish choices not only look great in photos but also help everyone feel relaxed and at ease. Coordinating outfits in colors that compliment each other or tiny patterns (avoid larger block patterns) can add a cohesive look to your photos while letting each family member’s personality shine through.

Celebrating Special Moments

Summer often brings special moments and milestones, such as family reunions, graduations, and family vacations. Incorporating these events into your summer family photos in Seattle adds a layer of significance to your photos. I always make some room in my calendar for families visiting Seattle. During the week, I can squeeze in some time at a location that is beautiful and fun for your family vacation.
