A beautiful family from Seattle / by Julie Cruz

Although I love seeing all of my repeat clients, I love meeting new families as well! Around this time of year many families head out this way for vacation. This gorgeous family was visiting from Seattle and was referred by friends of theirs (who were clients of mine that I photographed in San Francisco a few years ago (thank you, Melody!)). It wasn't as warm as we all hoped it would be (in fact it was pretty chilly), but I joked with them that they must have brought the Seattle weather with them ;) It was 90+ degrees here yesterday and is over 80 again today....so quite a change from when they were here.  Zachary (Zak) is 6, but I almost asked for an ID card. He was HILARIOUS. He honestly acted like a little man, and the things he would say had me do double takes many times throughout the shoot. So adorable and sweet, yet silly and fun, all mixed up in one.
