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.
