Golden Gardens Family Session: Adrienne, Chris + Tate

Jul 27, 2009 | Families, Little Ones, Portraits

Last week I got to meet up with one of my favorite wedding couples from last summer, Adrienne and Chris, for some final family photos before I move away.  They drove all the way from Olympia for the session and I had lots of fun showing off my favorite Seattle beach to them, Golden Gardens.

Chris and Adrienne’s son Tate is four years old and a charmer.  He totally stole my heart within five minutes – how could you not fall for that ADORABLE little face, and that faux-hawk?  Love it!  I was also super impressed that he managed to keep this going for the full session … an hour and a half is a long time for a kid that young.  He was such a rockstar.  Thank you guys for traveling all that way for me, and for coming and enjoying a beer afterward.  Hopefully it made the long drive home a little more pleasant!
