How to Choose Kid Friendly Locations For Your Seattle Family Portraits

One of the Happy Film Company's FAVORITE things is having our clients come back to see us year after year. Creating relationships and memories through our lens is what we are all about! The Coulter Family came to us for their family portraits a few years back - so imagine our excitement in getting to shoot them again just a few years later!

For families with multiple kiddos, choosing a location is key. Parents often want to showcase all that Seattle has to offer including its gorgeous lakes, views, beaches and even forests. Luckily, all of that is within arms reach and, BONUS, many of those options have a playground either attached or nearby. There's nothing like a little bribe of getting to play at the park to get your little ones excited about a family photo shoot.

In addition to being a fun add on for your kids,  playgrounds allow us to capture some of the most genuine smiles, love and joy as we watch your family playSliding down slides, hanging from the monkey bars and climbing up ladders are great ways to showcase your little ones at this time in their lives. Their spontaneous energy and joy will radiate in the images that are captured.

Golden Gardens, Carkeek Park, Kerry Park, Meydenbauer Beach Park, and Greenlake are all great options when choosing a location that is extra kid friendly! 

Thank you Coulter Family for allowing the Happy Film Company to watch your family grow. We love having you as clients!
