This was my first time out to Solo Point. I am an avid beach hunter. I thought that I been to all the nearby waterfronts. So when Marissa mentioned somewhere close by that I hadn’t explored yet, I was immediately down.
Solo Point did not disappoint. Getting there is a little questionable. It is technically on Fort Lewis, the roads to the beach are lined with explosive test areas and other types of ranges. But ones you see it, it is so worth it.
A little piece of paradise, an oasis. Clear waters with a stunning view of a cliff side island and distant shores. With the sunset hitting it just right to give it that true summer vibe. Though lets be real, this is the pacific northwest so it was still not warm enough to get in the water.
I spent my time here with Luka and his parents. Luka was a 2 year old on a mission. He was surrounded by rocks and pebbles with the goal of getting as many into the water as he could. I might have bribed him to look in exchange for a few rocks. Not that we were weren’t able to persuade him to join in on some family fun.
We were able to capitalize on the rocks to sneak in some shots of mom and dad. Those shots you don’t get many of after a little one joins the family. But are so important to capture that bond that started it all. These two are gorgeous together. They certainly made my job easy.
Just as I arrived at the beach I noticed these blackberry bushes and knew I wanted to end the session here with the sunlight leaking through. Luka agreed that was a great idea after he discovered they had berries. Most of them were not quite ready yet but there was a few ripe ones in the mix. I think every session needs to end with fresh picked berries. I think all kids would agree that photo sessions would be a lot more fun.
Thank you to the Thorson family for giving me a fun Sunday evening on the beach! I loved being find special rocks with Luka!
