Fall Sunset Family Session | Deception Pass State Park | Kara Chappell Photography

The busy season is here (for photographers at least), but I’m hanging in there and actually (dare I say?) enjoying the season?! I’ve learned some hard lessons over the years and one of them is to not overbook myself. So I’m catching up on blogging from the summer, editing from last month, and shooting sessions this month (only 1-2 per week), and with school starting (yay!), I’m finding peace and enjoying my work.

Life is all about balance. Balancing work and family. Time and money. Health and happiness. As a military family, balance doesn’t happen easily. It comes in pieces, when families like this one are reunited after living on different coasts for a year.

This session was a chance for this incredible family to reconnect and hold on to memories from this chapter of their lives, before moving on to the next adventure.
