Happy Holidays! Thank you for your support and friendship! I look forward to the New Year filled with creativity, new ideas and capturing connections between the loved ones! With much love, Anita.
Throughout the year I photograph families and this is the grand finale… when families send cards to me with photos that we created together. This was a family that I photographed in New York in the heart of Central Park. This memorable time was solidified with kind words and holiday wishes from this client delivered via snail mail.
I am wishing for spring these days, despite the fact that it is still a long way away. As of today, we are yet a few days from the longest and darkest winter’s night.
As a natural light photographer, I really do live for those perfect non- rainy days when I can photograph families in Seattle’s bountiful nature: in parks, by the water, with colorful Autumn leaves, and even with props that compliment families, and children, in particular.
Recently on a chilly afternoon as the rain was pouring down, I sat down to look at some of my earlier work. I ran across a photo session done eight years ago with a couple and their newborn inside their home.
Rather than dwelling on gray skies, I got excited about the thought that I could once again photograph babies within their warm homes, while outdoors the rain beats sidelong across the windowpanes. My next newsletter will be just about that topic, and before I know it Seattle’s dazzling spring with its perfect days will return, and with it, the ideal conditions for photographing families outside.
After much work, attention and care, wedding photos soon to be delivered to a client. For a wedding photographer, always a great moment to arrive at …
Wedding venue: Sleeping Lady Resort, Leavenworth, WA
This year’s Summer has been incredible. These images were made what seemed like the last day of it. We are still hoping for warm days through October. All will be embraced, however once more: this year’s Summer has been incredible and I loved photographing kids enjoying the sun, water, warmth and beach time till glorious sun sets.
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.
As a Seattle photographer, I have acquired a vast portfolio of children and families photographed on our splendid beaches. Some day, I will put it all together into a book called: Families of the Northwest. Some day…. But for now, posting this photo of kids playing at the Golden Gardens beach while an amazing Seattle Summer continues.
