Once Upon A Time: Central Washington Family Photography

Sometimes I have to remind myself to step away. Move back. Let the moment happen. Let the light breath and expand. Because sometimes the best images aren’t taken from up close; they’re from a distance.

Aw, thank you Brandis! I know, I’m a sucker for storybooks. And you truly did an absolutely lovely job, too. It looked straight out of a Grimms’s Fairy Tale.
