Aww…, this Seattle rain!

Today, early morning family photo session. We began on a bridge that is every photographer’s dream for composing images. As we just started building energy with each other, running around with Chloe, the rain said its familiar Northwest hello. Oh, well….. We will resume soon again, but here just few images captured:

Maternity session from years ago (Seattle Newborn Photography).

While taking a break from work, was looking at … my old work. Film work. From 10 years ago or so. This image comes from my first maternity session. Had to turn the scanner on and scan the negative to make this post. I used to photograph with 400 T-Max black and white film and liked it for its grainy emulsion and “unique tonal curve”. Eastman Kodak, these were different days!

Rain and Crocodile tears (Unique Family portraits in Seattle).

I have always wanted to work a family photo session in an absolute downpour. The rain was here this morning and everyone was up for it. I made a lot of images of running over the puddles, but this one I liked the most. Disclaimer comes along: Crocodile tears were over “an ice cream NOW”…

Toby smiling (Seattle Baby Portraits).

Toby’s Mother hoped for the images that show his generous smiles and two bottom teeth. He is 10 months now and he “cooperated”  throughout the entire family photography session.

An Atlas (Seattle Unique Family Portraits).

During our photo session, while lifting the weights along with his son, James said with an effort: “As a parent I feel like mythical Atlas a lot, holding “The Earth” on my shoulders. Now, I feel it literally”…

Tall Grasses (Seattle Toddler Photography).

The beaches of  The Baltic Sea where I grew up have the tall grass blades covering the milky dunes. Each time I have a family photo session at Golden Gardens in Seattle I arrange some play time around the grass blades resembling the ones I knew as a kid.
