Saying Goodbye to Home | Whidbey Island Family Photographer

When Sara contacted me about documenting their last days in Washington, it was bittersweet. They've called this place home for years now, and were preparing to move across the country to a new duty station. New jobs, new schools, new friends, and a new home. 

A photographer herself, Sara knows this move means starting her own business over again as well. A business she has poured herself into these past few years, serving families and birth clients in Kitsap County. 

Sara and I talked about her vision for this session over the past few months, and besides capturing their family as they really are, a gorgeous sunny night was at the top of our list. And while we started with abundant sunshine, some clouds and moody skies quickly rolled in. I couldn't help think that the images we captured against the darker skies reflected this family's current chapter as well. A change for sure, but one with so much beauty and promise for new adventures to come.
