Location Spotlight: Skansie Park in Gig Harbor

Doing 30 minute photo sessions at Skansie park has become sort of an obsession of mine. I have gotten to know every nook, cranny, and angle to get the best shots during the morning hours when the light there is simply magical. Is there anything more quintessentially Gig Harbor than the Skansie Net Shed? I don't think so. And even if you aren't necessarily from Gig Harbor, there are few places with such ease of access that offer so many stunning PNW backgrounds in one easy place. Blurry sailboat masts? Check. Shabby chic reclaimed wood background? Check. Sprawling lawn with water in the background? Check. Dock with sparkly water and evergreen trees behind? Check. In 30 minutes, we can do them ALL (that is if kids are cooperating and we move quick).

Skansie Park works great for family photos, graduating seniors, headshots, even engagement photos.

 

Pros: Lots and lots of different backgrounds, including a couple neutral walls which are great for framed photos. Accessible and flat for less abled people. 

Cons: only works on mornings between 9-11:30. Saturdays are busy there with canoe and kayak practices (lots of people in the background, but I can make it work). Sunday works best, and weekdays are even better. 

Skansie works best on 30-40 minutes. Want to make it 60 minutes? Add on Anchic Park or the Russel Foundation.
