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!

Photographing families and children involves both the predictable and the unknown. My objective in every family 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. My family photo sessions take place under natural light. Photos created during a session are a medley of each child’s individual portraits, the child(ren) with each family member and the family together.

Spring time comes around and Seattle’s streets and parks come alive with pink cherry blossoms. It is a site to see and it all lasts a week or two providing incredible backdrops for family portraits.
