Happy Father’s Day from a Seattle Family Photographer

Portrait of a father and the twins.  I created this image during recent family photography session.  Seth is a comedian from LA.  I don’t know when the lemons arrived during the photo session.  I think he brought them and nobody questioned it.  I did my work and he did his work, holding children lovingly and handing them lemons to hold and be intrigued with.  I think, the avocado was introduced first but it did not take.  The bottom line is:  Happy Father’s Day!  Let it be love and light!  Happy Solstice as well.  With much love from a Seattle Family Photographer!

Spontaneous Family Portraits, Seattle, WA

Family photography is what I love to do and it happens to be my work!  I am a photographer specializing in spontaneous family portraits.  Photographing children and parents involves both the predictable and the unknown.  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.  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. All sessions take place under natural light.

I wish you…

This is the image that I closed my busy season to as a Seattle Family Photographer. Now, the New Year 2016 is here.

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art—write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” ~ Neil Gaiman

The words I will live my 2016 by. Wishing you the same wholeheartedly.

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.

New Year’s Reflections from a Seattle Family Photographer, Seattle, WA

It is interesting how our mind aligns with the Universe or the Universe aligns with our mind.
Yesterday was the first day of the New Year. I have been pondering and reflecting on things, perhaps more then on a “usual” day. While on a walk with my camera I saw literal reflections of people, kids and families. It was quite magical and simple and powerful to see. I took it as a confirmation and affirmation of my path.

Happy New Year! May it be a Grand One!

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….

Hats off. Hats on. Hat off and on, over and over again. The in-between is what most interested me. This is just a preview of autumnal children’s portraits I have been making this season. When time allows, there will be a blog post and more photos which show off Seattle’s glorious fall colors, children and families.

A bit of a Summer sum up. Seattle, WA Family Photography

Summer is on its last leg and this image was made in the beginning of it.
It was a good one for me, with many friendships and wishes made. A few interesting roads were traveled as well. Hope the same goes for you. I look forward to more as I watch shadows get longer while I photograph families this Fall.
