Sometimes the best active lifestyle sessions are the spontaneous ones that happen on spur of the moment gorgeous days in the middle of a rainy week! Seriously, Mary messaged me the night before saying that the next day was going to be beautiful and wondered if I wanted to take advantage of it! I was so excited that it took me .2 seconds to message back “Absolutely!” I mean why not, it had been raining all week and was going to continue to rain for the rest of it! We had a perfect opportunity to with gorgeous weather to run around!
Mary graciously picked me up after I got off, from my day job, and headed us immediately in the direction of the water. On the way, she spoke of a few murals that were colorful and thought would make a good backdrop. However, two of the three didn’t work out. They were interesting, very pretty, and very colorful. One was sandwiched between a restaurant and a dumpster with the ground a complete mess. The second one was really cool but unfortunately was hiding behind the cars parked on the street for the day.
The third mural, on the other hand, was located in an open parking lot! There were no cars, it was clean, and we had plenty of space! It was also by far the most colorful mural she showed me… and the most fun I think! After the mural, we paid the Ballard Locks a visit! This was fun for a few reasons! First I had never been there or anywhere like it! Second It was a large place and we only had to walk a little for a change of scenery!
We ended our session on Mary’s boat! These are some of my favorite shots! The weather was perfect, blue we just the right amount of clouds and breeze! Besides, I have a small love for boats! There is just something so beautiful about them! Seeing them parked in the docks is a picture perfect puzzle for me! So far this is my favorite lifestyle session! I can’t wait to do more this year!
