The Standley Family at the New Vancouver Waterfront!

Have you been to the new waterfront walkway we have here in Vancouver, WA? My first time down there was to meet the Standley family for a fun portrait session.

It was a perfect fall day here in the northwest with blue skies, but with that, we did get the cold wind. That did not stop this high energy family!

There is a new walkway that jettison’s over the water and lends to some great views. As one that is hesitant of water, I was quite ok with this one.

On the central part of the walkway, they created a structural brace piece that was very sail-like to go along with the river. It gave us a little hiding spot from the sun and a different backdrop. So of course, Matt and Tallen had to play around on them as well.

The pathway that goes east from the main area is lined with smaller trees and opens up into the original amphitheater. The amphitheater also happens to be where Jay proposed to Peggy!


I am so happy that I get to continuously work with this fantastic family. First, it was Bailee and Matt’s wedding, and next up is Tallen and Elizabeth’s wedding next year. I can’t wait to hang out with them again!
