I specialize in timeless, fine art photography and my passion is combining traditional and lifestyle portraiture while photographing families, seniors, maternity and branding clients in Cle Elum, Washington and surrounding areas.
As a Cle Elum photographer, I work with absolutely amazing moms every day who prioritize their families and communities before themselves. As Mother’s Day approaches, I am sharing my roadmap to Mother’s Day in Cle Elum & Roslyn to make it easier to plan a special day for the mom in your life. Whether you’re celebrating a mom and/or mother figure, have furbabies, or are a mother looking for ideas for this Mother’s Day, this guide is for you.
My favorite photograph with my mom was taken in 2013, just before she passed from cancer. Her photography and collection of family photographs dating back to the mid-1800s are my most prized possessions to this day.
With a family friendly atmosphere and great coffee, Stella’s is a wonderful way to start the day. From parfaits & waffles to smoothies and baked goods, the menu has something for everyone to enjoy.
Dine in and eat on their deck or take your goodies to go. You won’t be disappointed with this first stop of the day!
Once properly caffeinated, drop Mom off at Sucasa Yoga for a Mother’s Day class. Owners Shay Lasswell & Amy Vetter are providing free classes to the public on Mother’s Day. Choose from their 9am Breath Vitality class or 6pm Restorative Yoga with Sound Bath class. You are guaranteed to leave feeling rested, restored, and refreshed.
Bonus: If you are new to Sucasa Yoga, you will also receive a two-week complimentary unlimited pass!
If your family enjoys hikes, this is a great mid-morning spot to allow kids to let out some energy. Explore, play I Spy, and soak in nature for another no-cost option.
The Lundh Family hikes on the Coal Miner’s Trail.
Keep in mind this option wouldn’t include the whole family, but Mother’s Day is all about pampering moms.
The Unwind Pass gives you two hours to enjoy all of the amenities Glade Springs Spa has to offer including saunas, hot tubs and more. Note, the spa is available to guests ages 16+ and does require a reservation.
Swiftwater Cellars has created the perfect setting to pamper mom! Enjoy their special brunch menu and family friendly atmosphere, and don’t forget to try the Orange Spritz drink special (Sparkling Wine, Orange Bitters, and fresh Orange rind), which I hear is outstanding!
Call to reserve your table.
From a Matcha Ube Iced Latte or macarons to a late afternoon pick-me-up, everything Charmaine makes is magical! Some of her top selling macarons include Creme Brulee, Honey Goat Cheese Fig, Lemon, and Honey Lavender. YUM.
Owner Andrea Mcjury, of Corks Wine Bar, has planned a special day for moms, including the Kate & Ali Shop traveling boutique, wine specials, and fresh floral arrangements. Join her for some light sips and shopping before ending your day.
If you’re more of a cocktail girl, consider Heritage Distilling Company tasting room, instead. They are a premier craft distillery with a variety of straight spirits flights and specialty cocktails. And this Mother’s Day, moms will receive a complimentary cocktail with any purchase.
If you are stumped on what to get for Mom as a gift, consider booking a family session. Click here for session details.
