Mother’s Day fine art gift from siblings, Seattle, WA

Mother’s Day is approaching.  Three siblings commissioned me for a portrait.  They will choose the best out of many proofs presented.  We will make a large print of it (perhaps 30×40 in size) and frame it gallery style.  The framed portrait will be gifted to their mother on Mother’s Day.  Amazing project and very touching to be working with such thoughtful young people.

Seattle Family Photographer and creative children

As a Seattle family photographer I often create visual sketches for my future work with children and families.  This sketch recorded on an iPhone video (link below) happened unexpectedly when I had two visitors while enjoying practicing playing my drum on the beach.  That moment gave me an idea to create few portraits of children playing the drum:

Spontaneous Family Portraits, Seattle, WA

Family photography is what I love to do and it happens to be my work!  I am a photographer specializing in spontaneous family portraits.  Photographing children and parents involves both the predictable and the unknown.  My objective in every photo session is to create images that display spontaneity while also expressing the beauty and temperament of the subject. I am not people-shy. I am agile, involved, and active throughout the session.  I focus on the unexpected, humorous, or touching moments that arise during a session.  This spontaneity naturally occurs but can also be instigated through direction by me, the photographer.  Thus I call my style “directed photojournalism”- a balance between the carefree and the guided, with attention to composition and the uniqueness of each subject. All sessions take place under natural light.  Please, take a look at my work:

I wish you….

This is the image that I closed my busy season to as a Seattle Family Photographer.   Now, the New Year 2016 is here.
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art—write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” ~ Neil Gaiman

The words I will live my 2016 by. Wishing you the same wholeheartedly.

Happy Holidays from a Seattle Family Photographer!

This is a time when clients send me their cards created with photos made during our family photography sessions.  With that stated I am pausing for just a bit with US champs of freestyle slalom for the observance of the Holiday time and Winter Solstice.  I welcome more light with each day from now on and gear up for a busy 2016.  But for now:  Happy Holidays from Anita Nowacka Photography!
