Children's Photographer

Seattle Summer and kid photography, Seattle, 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.

Lifestyle Photography

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.

Northwest Family Photography, Seattle, WA

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.

Creative Photography

Creative Seattle Family, Seattle, WA

This family is creative to say the least. I met them through Facebook. I have been following their inventive posts and finally got to photograph them in their cardboard robot costumes made for last year’s Halloween. When I asked the father, a graphic designer, how long did it take to make such detailed robot costumes, he said: “at some point the time blended in together and I stopped counting the hours.” His wife just chuckled and looked lovingly back at him. I caught that look before she put on the robot head piece on…. Photos from the Robot Family Session, soon. For now, just a preview of the family that enjoys time together through art that they create. Working with them inspired me. A bonus to me, a family photographer, always in need of a new vision and an inspiration.

Photography Promotion

New Marketing Material for my Family Photography business, Seattle, WA

Such a relief to outsource at times ( to a great source….) while being in biz for yourself. My set of marketing cards is ready. Graphic designer I worked with did a marvelous work with simple design, message, researching the right paper, local printer and all that jazz that matters in the end! Feels good to hold my new cards, feels good to let them go into the world! Voila!

Wintertime Children's Photography

Seattle’s snow and kid photography. Seattle, WA

Seattle’s snow comes in two times a year for a brief moment and covers the Earth for just enough time to hear a crunch under your boots, to roll down the hill or make a snow man – a dirty snow man, with all the ground picked up in the process of making… I was not commissioned to make these portraits. These are neighborhood kids doing their snow carpe diem while it all lasted: just few hours.

Children's Photography

Children Photography and The Lights of the Holiday Season, Seattle, WA

I remember being a child and being mesmerized by a Holiday twinkle. My father took a photo of me jaw dropping, while looking at the lit up Xmas tree. Decades later, even though so much has changed in this fast paced world, being mesmerized by a Holiday twinkle remains….
