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…
