Summer days for documentary family photography are the busy days. Summer is coming to a close and anyone in the PNW knows we take full advantage of our glorious summers here. I was lucky enough to get in three full family Feature Stories over the past few months, the Harrison family in Burien being the second of those three.

None of my documentary family photography work is ever the same because every family I photograph is unique. This family is full of free spirits. Both mom and dad are artists and the kids seem to have inherited the artist’s free spirited nature. The beauty of it floods me with nostalgia for my own childhood. The days of zero responsibility, wild imagination, and a simple yard.
