Maple Valley Family Session: Freeman Family

Mackenzie, oldest daughter in the Freeman family, reached out to me about doing a family session last fall. They live in Maple Valley, the little town 45 minutes south-east of Seattle where I grew up. Maple Valley is a quaint but growing suburb that sits just out of the shadow of Mount Rainier, in the foothills of the Cascade mountains. She asked if I had any close to home ideas for locations, and an idea popped into my mind. Even though my family has lived in Maple Valley for over 20 years, my parents recently bought a little patch of land out by Issaquah-Hobart Road. They actually just broke ground on the foundation, and big things are happening! But back when Mackenzie and I first chatted, it was just a golden patch of grass with a few trees, and some flowers. The perfect Maple Valley location, with no errant pedestrians in sight. Hopefully once the house is built, there will be enough space for many family sessions to come. Maybe even one of mine :)
