When Anni and Brian first asked about doing maternity photos together, Anni told me she wasn't looking for a "glamour" session. I teased her that I could more easily imagine her cracking up and tossing on a dinosaur costume, like that silly viral video (keep scrolling to see the best party crashers). We loved the idea of planning a fun weekend getaway and having me tag along for a portion of it. We picked a place special to them, took the ferry from Anacores to Orcas Island, and enjoyed puzzles and ferry coffee along the way (their favorites!). It was the perfect way to celebrate one of their last adventures before becoming a family of three!
Roche Harbor is one of my very favorite places! My family and I liked to vacation there in the summer time, always stopping at their little street market for ice ream or grapefruit candy. I loveeeeed walking though their gardens and that gorgeous walkway, occasionally getting a glimpse of a sunny summer wedding. We took one of their scoot coupes across the island to the Pelindaba Lavender farm (it smells amazing!), visited Pop-eye the one-eyed seal, and witnessed some incredible sunsets during Colors. If you haven't been to Roche Harbor yet, I really recommend it! And if you're dreaming of getting married in a garden overlooking ocean, check it out!
