Fly me to the moon

It has been too long since I have see the ground from the air. I can remember a time when Angie and I were shooting destination weddings and experiencing flight on a regular basis; soaking in culture and bad coffee like a sponges. Babies, family life, and my ever thinning wallet seem to be hindering my ability to be in the sky quite a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade all the flights in the world for my husband, children, and life here in Bellingham. I just simply miss it. There is something so incredibly special about seeing our world from the air. If you have a staring problem like me, seeing anything from a different vantage point is life giving. So when my client suggested picking me up at the Bellingham airport and flying me to Roche Harbor for family portraits, I was thrilled, and dare I say it, squealed. It was as if he had offered to fly me to the moon. Clearly I need to get out more. Flying in a smaller plane is a joy I hope everyone gets to experience at some point in their life. After a quick run-down of how to pull the parachute if we were to get in trouble, we took off. The view of the islands from the air was stunning, and I’m not sure I was even forming coherent sentences because I was so awe struck. Our ¬†shoot was equally fun for me as we padded around the harbor capturing giggles, spins, and little boy airplanes. I know I say this a lot, but I truly do have the kindest, most loving and wonderful clients around. I hope they enjoy these photos as much as I did capturing them.
