Lily Temmer is an author (she has written four novels and four collections of short stories, and her prose was deemed, quote, “flawless” by Kirkus Reviews), copywriter, editor and ghost writer. Lily is a dear friend of mine. Recently we talked about my work as a Seattle Family Photographer and this is what Lily wrote after our conversation. Thank you Lily Temmer:
Every family has a unique personality, and when we work together, I strive to bring out the unexpected, humorous, or touching moments that make your family like no other. I call my style directed photojournalism, which is a balance between the carefree and the guided, with attention paid to composition, and the essence of each subject.
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. My ultimate goal is to provide you with images you will cherish for years to come.
Family photography is a collaborative process. When we work together I will provide you with location choices that come from our consultation, or that I think will work well for your session. Before the day of the photo session, I will provide you with detailed information about clothing choices, plus any pertinent information you will need to find the location.
Our session will last about 90minutes. It is part of the process to draw you out and make sure everyone is working together smoothly toward the finished product.
Following our session, I will contact you to arrange for a meeting to view the photographs. Here, you will choose your favorites which will then be expertly retouched and polished for the most natural look.
I am happy to accommodate special requests. Here, in this video a bit about me:
I look forward to working together to capture your family’s personal fine art!
This image of a creative family was taken on the last day of the year 2106 (it was very cold and to play guitars meant to have numb fingers). Bye, bye! I welcome a New Year with new plans and excitement for my work as Seattle Family Photographer. Happy New Year Everyone! I look forward to seeing you in front of my lens!
