Rosario Bay Family Session | Anacortes Family Photographer | Kara Chappell Photography

You know when you meet someone for the first time, and you just know that they are the coolest? That’s how I feel about this gem of a lady right here. My sweet friend (and amazeballs photographer) Kerry Lee introduced me to Lauren as she and her family were making the move to Anacortes. We hit it off right away, and I seriously wish she was my next-door neighbor!

Lauren has two super-duper sweet boys, who are definitely growing up too fast, so she wanted to lock down family pictures earlier this summer before the boys started school and life got hectic. (Did I mention she’s also renovating a gorgeous home?) She’s got her hands full, but is making the most of every day.

For their family session, we met at Rosario Bay and enjoyed the abundant sunshine of a perfect Pacific Northwest evening. The boys picked flowers, snuggled, and played on the beach with their mom and dad. And I documented my sweet friend and her beautiful family as they start a new chapter of their story.
