Spring Family Short Story | Gig Harbor Family Photographer | Moss & Mint Photography

Give me all the spring sunshine and beautiful families in vibrant colors–I love it! I loved so many things about this session. After a couple of reschedules for rainy weather, we finally got a perfect day. The kids were happy to play in the lush green grass and blow wishes, and we took our time walking through the fields. You would never guess that there were some tears and meltdowns a little in between shots, and mom was worried that would show through in the images. As you can tell below, there were so many great moments and beautiful connections, I knew it wouldn’t be an issue. Even when there are those tears or frowns, as of course is normal with almost every family, we take a moment and regroup. I often find those quiet moments some of my best captures, because it shows raw emotions, true life, and the sweetest bonds between parents and their children. 

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog!  I’m Cheri, the photographer behind Moss & Mint Photography, and I am a storyteller.  My passion is capturing the real, the raw, the beautiful story called your life, and providing you with the tangible memories of today’s moments with your family for you to cherish forever.  I specialize in lifestyle family photography, as well as celebrating childhood milestones from birth all the way through high school graduation. Through my lens, I find the magic in everyday life.  My images are rich in color and emotion, and often times set in gorgeous locations. I love warm sunsets and families dancing in it as sun dips behind the trees, photographing all the little details of exactly how you are at this moment.  When you look back at your images, you will remember the moments, feel the warmth, and experience it all over again.
