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!

Winter family portraits, Seattle, WA

While winter time offers marvelous light for portraits outside, the city however lends its walls for interesting and sometimes even magical backdrops.  With the perfect light, great subjects and fabulous colors of Seattle’s EMP Museum another winter family photo session was made.

Family photos for a photographer friend, Seattle, WA

Savanah is an incredible photographer.  Savanah is an incredible mother.  She is an incredible person and a dear friend.  She has two fabulous daughters.  Her daughters took a break from their busy lives and came back home to visit their mother.  I offered to make photos.  We photographed by The Moonbeam, a vintage trailer that has been with the family for many years.  The trailer let them travel in comfort  into many stunning , breathtaking and remote places and remains a family cherished possession and a symbol of good times and togetherness.  And there was Max too.  A relatively new addition to the Moonbeam Team: a gentle mutt with thoughtful eyes and agreeable spirit.

Autumn and Kid photography. Seattle, WA

Hats off. Hats on. Hat off and on, over and over again. The in-between is what most interested me. This is just a preview of autumnal children’s portraits I have been making this season. When time allows, there will be a blog post and more photos which show off Seattle’s glorious fall colors, children and families.

Keeping up with the balance…. Family Photography, Seattle, WA

With posting this image depicting the joy of discovery I am leaving Seattle for a bit, to take time off from my demanding schedule as a family photographer. As much as I love what I do, sometimes I need to step away from the photographer’s rigorous work flow.
Here is to seeing new places, meeting new people, reconnecting with friends and planting new seeds of ideas! For now, so long Chief Seattle, halloo Pele!

Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy New Year! Let it be filled with creativity, tenacity, love and courage!

This photo was made in Georgetown, Seattle, WA, this past summer. Little did I know when we photographed, that this particular photo would be used by my clients for their New Year’s card. How appropriate!

“Ode to beautiful light.” Yellow grasses and family photo session at Discovery Park in Seattle, WA

I shared a photo from my recent family photo session with my friend, Martha. She responded: “Great shot! This reminds me of a Rilke poem, she added, translated by Robert Bly called, “A Walk.” Then she quoted the poem:

“My eyes already touch the sunny hill,
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance -
and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces”.

 Thank you Martha and thank you Rainer Maria Rilke.

Mother and Son. Part 2. Family Photography at Carkeek Park in Seattle, WA

Working as a family photographer I strive for simple portraits. I like the simplicity in expressions, gestures, composition, and light. Sometimes it comes quickly and easily, but mostly it is a dance between finding the right moment, the right time, and the right opening to people’s energy and moods. It always starts a bit like a clumsy dance; stepping on each others toes, so to speak, when “partners” need to get to know one another. Later on, it moves  to finding that right balance between the subject and the components of photography: the photographer, camera, lenses, light, timing, moods and whatever might happen in the moment which often makes an image that much more interesting. In this case, it was a straw hat that appeared onto a set several minutes into the session. I tell you, simple things matter…
