When Jennifer Wilcox Photography asked me to please consider coming out to Seattle for fairy sessions, I never really thought it would actually happen. Then she told me she’d blocked off dates, found locations for me.. suddenly I was going! I spent a week out there in Seattle Washington, getting to know her three amazing girls. I had such a great time, and we’re already talking about more trips!
Part 2 of 3, because this was a three day, four hundred mile, six location EPIC shoot. These girls were in those dresses and wings for a collective 18 hours, I think.
Day 2 – Fairholm and Sol Duc Falls. This was a day of me being nervous. Our first stop was trying to find this tree, which took us a while, but it was worth it. Then I freaked out while the girls totally climbed that tree like bosses. I was envisioning broken bones and the end of the shoot and blood everywhere.. mom’s like “Heather, they’re fine.” So afterwards I picked a spot that actually caused them more harm than the tree.. a nice mossy bed.. filled with blackberry thorns. Good job to me. So we continue onward and hit the Sol Duc trail and falls. I think about 10 people stopped the girls for photos on our way up that trail.. I pick out spots for the individual photos of the girls.. once I rounded the corner and the other two are playing on a tree that crosses a low fall, but still high up enough to fall in easily. OMG, freakout! But pictures first, then freak out, okay, Heather? Augh. So we get to the falls and it’s a HUGE waterfall with HUGE rocks. Mom says “I can get them out of those rocks.” Cue another freakout for me, I’m imagining them going over the falls.. death death dying. Of course, they’re fine.
