Cle Elum Winter Family Portraits

Cle Elum Winter Family Portraits

These three families have a tradition of meeting up for a mountain getaway together each winter. They’ve been friends since high school, all had their children within the same year (with one more on the way now!) and are now closer than ever. This winter they all trekked to a cabin in Cle Elum to enjoy a long weekend in the snow and wanted to get some family portraits done together to commemorate their tradition. I thought it sounded like the perfect idea.

The snow was piled above my knees and still coming down, a true winter wonderland! We had to work fast in the cold. We walked through shoveled paths in the snow, tossed snow in the air to make for big, happy smiles on the little ones’ faces, and dashed inside several times to warm up fingers and toes. And at the end, we headed back inside to enjoy a nice big batch of hot chocolate! It was such a privilege to witness the closeness between these families, and to see these three kiddos playing together at the beginning of a truly lifelong friendship of their own. I was reminded of the saying “friends become our chosen family.” These three little families together make one bigger one, so of course it was only fitting to combine them all together for some shots.

Family sessions are always just a barrel of fun and laughs and me firing away at the shutter, waiting for the perfect expressions on kids’ faces. This day was no exception, but add in the snow and cute winter hats? Too adorable. I might have to line up some more snowy mountain family minis!

Happy winter everyone! We’ve just got a few weeks left ;)
