Children's Portrait Photography

Bike Joy. Spontanious Family Portrait Photography- Seattle, WA.

Some things have changed a lot since I was a toddler: technology for sure. Kid’s toys look so sophisticated these days and they are equipped with many gadgets. One thing stays the same though: The Joy of Playing! When I was making this family portrait recently, the tricycle came along with few other toys to use as props. It was an early morning photography session and when the frost on the Kirkland dock was almost gone, the trike came to the scene and Chloe’s face lit up and a permanent smile appeared. While I was photographing her speeding up, slowing down, smiling and being cautioned by her watchful parents my own memories of  biking as a child came into mind. I know that my bike riding days were the most powerful times for me. That was the first time I tasted being free, going fast and taking chances on my own. Back then, bike helmets were not “in vogue” yet…. Hey, Chloe, BTW where is your helmet since The Times have changed, indeed?!

Harley Davidson Family

Harley Davidson Family. (Seattle Family Photography).

This Family are repeat clients. I photographed a wedding within this Family, then a brand new child that they so awaited and few days ago a celebration of the Grandparents and their long marriage. Those guys are Harley Davidson riders. They are fun people. They love their dogs. They love their kids. They love their wheels dearly. I had a permanent grin on my face while photographing them during the latest photo session involving the entire family and The Harleys. After the work was done, I received a check and …. a bottle of primo Chopin Vodka. They know I am Polish. Whatever that means… Here is the preview from the photo session I so enjoyed:

Post Scriptum

After the photos were delivered, my Client wrote me a note:

“I love the photos and it is hard to pick a favorite. I really like one of my mom and her dog. It is so hard to get my mom to smile, and you really captured her. Also, the ones of my mom and dad on the motorcycle. They have really enjoyed their motorcycling days and it is nice to capture that as well. My dad just put his motorcycle up for sale, a hard thing for him to do. But, he has some vision issues and is concerned. I am so happy we were able to do the session when we did. Also love the group shots…. and ones of me. Like the jpg you sent me last! Thank you again Anita for your creative eye, and patience to work with the group”.  Susanne

Mother and Child Photography

Elegance of a Mother. Seattle Newborn Photography.

 

It was a photo session with a Mother and her Newborn daughter. We chose a Shilshole Beach in Seattle, WA for a location. The sun was being filtered through the clouds. The child needed to be fed. I photographed, and the crow walked into the image frame. While the breeze picked up few times, it was a quiet moment between us and that crow.

Children's Photography

Aligned with a Seattle Horizon.

This image was made recently during the family photo session with Sheila, and her son, Jude. Few times, while looking at this photo, Sheila expressed her amazement about the stick alignment with The Seattle Horizon (yes, a Space Needle to the right). I agree, this belongs in the Meant to Be Category. Well, we could have set it up, but we did not have to….

Father and Daughter Photography

Margo with Father (Seattle Family Photography).

This image dates back to film days of photography. Seems like not so long ago, however so much has changed since photographers loaded film into cameras. In this image: Margo with her Dad. Their family photo session was captured with 2 rolls of film: one black and white and one color. 70 and some exposures and one love!

Lifestyle photography

“Frozen Pond” in Seattle (Unique Seattle Family Photography).

This does not last for long in Seattle. Maybe a day and a half when we all can walk on water….Then it is all about cracking ice, wet shoes and running for the “shore”. Boris, am I right?

Seattle portrait photography

“Mudness” before Xmas (Unique Seattle Family Portraits).

After the main family photography was through, dad said: “Son, you want to roll in mud? Want to?” At first, there was a disbelief on boy’s face, then he took to it, rolled back and forth and more and in the end you can see how proud he was. Chris, the father said jokingly: “Got to return the sweater to the store now”.
