Kylie & Kent - Maternity Session - Olympic National Forest - Western Washington
I met Kylie & Kent officially last year after they had booked me to shoot their wedding. If I remember correctly, I actually think she had emailed me on the Fourth of July! And Drunk Chelsea was like "YES! I AM STOKED FOR THIS COUPLE!" and honestly I don't think I've ever shared that with them, so there ya go hahah. Luckily I am still very professional even while under the influence of a few too many bud light platinums.
Kylie wanted engagement photos near Mt. Rainier but there was way too much snow at the time, so when she asked about maternity photos in the summer, I was so excited because obviously snow wouldn't be an issue in June, right? Wrong, apparently. Still tons of snow on the hiking trails around the mountain. So we compromised and honestly I think we made an amazing decision.
We drove all the way up to Port Angeles, quite the journey for both of us honestly, and headed up to Hurricane Ridge. The drive up to Port Angeles alone is gorgeous, especially on a warm summer day, but the drive up to Hurricane Ridge? OH. MY. GOSH. You start to see a few mountains and then suddenly it's like ALL THE MOUNTAINS.
We had a lovely time shooting up in the mountains and I can't wait to meet their baby boy at their wedding this summer! Should I say mountains one more time? Mountains. Mountains. Mountains!!
