Welcome to the blog! I’m a small-town Florida girl and Army wife relocated to the Seattle Suburbs, documenting love from one coast to the other. I live for a good PNW mountain breeze, sweat pants, and local eats. Let's be friends!

Local Photoshoot Location Ideas | Olympia, WA

Filed in: Locations

Below are some local photoshoot locations that photograph well. Please keep in mind that their look will vary by season and the lighting produced by the weather.

Solo Point | Dupont, WA

Views | the sound, rock beach, some drift wood, usually seaweed, wooded forest areas

A smaller unknown area that used to be part of the military base. This area is a little bit “strange” to drive into with old signage but is a little local gem and available to the public.
