Discovery Park is easily in my top 3 of favorite locations to photograph in Washington state. Located about 5 miles north of downtown Seattle in the Magnolia neighborhood, this 500+ acre park has *amazing* views of the Puget Sound and over 11 miles of walking trails (translation: we can find a spot where no one will be in the background of your photos)!
When choosing outfits for Discovery Park, it’s best to select a palette of 3-4 colors & mix it up with textures. The goal is to have a cohesive feel and not to have everyone match each other. You can check out my What To Wear – Families board on Pinterest for some visual inspiration and color palette options. I also created this Reel showing you how I styled outfits for my family’s 2022 portrait session. I’m happy to jump on a video call with you to go through your closets, and if you’re in the Kirkland/Eastside or Seattle area I can come to your home to help you select and style your family’s clothing – a complimentary service when you book a session with me!
My other favorite thing about this park? It’s an ideal location for photos year round — tall grasses and water backdrops in the winter, blooming trees in the spring, wildflowers in the summer, and stunning leaf colors in the fall! Keep scrolling for more Discovery Park inspo for your next session!
