Seattle Adventure EngagementLake Cushman

This Seattle engagement’s been waiting far too long to be posted. I know what you’re thinking; “Lynnsey! Why did it take you so long to post this session!” To which I can only say that I’ve been a bit behind with updating the blog this year… but no longer! There’s a new year on the horizon, and with it comes a whole new phase for Lionlady.

You may not know this, but for the past few years I’ve operated Lionlady Photography while working various other full-time jobs in the Seattle area. This year marks my first time relying entirely on photography. It’s gonna be hard, but I think I’m ready. Baby bird’s gotta fly sometime, amirite? Anyway, on to the shoot.

Earlier this year, Joey and Katie joined me on an adventure to Lake Cushman, a beautiful little getaway just two hours southwest of Seattle. I’m so happy that they were willing to drive so far for their session. Finding a novel location in the immediate Seattle area can be a bit challenging at times, but there are tons of unique locales just outside of our little sphere. And unique doesn’t even begin to describe the crown jewel that is Lake Cushman.

This Tolkienesque landscape has great stumps and trunks of fallen giants, towering emerald mountains on all sides, and a gorgeous, placid mirror of a lake in the middle of it all. Lake Cushman is a treasure, and should be added to your PNW bucket list ASAP.

If you still need convincing, flip through the photos below. If you’re already convinced, you should still look at the photos. This is a photoblog, after all.
