Emmy and Brian are some of my favorite clients, and every year we do a special shoot to see how the kids have grown. It can feel like a challenge to come up with somewhere fun we have not been before, so this year I decided to bring a toddler kite to throw in the mix. Riley and the Kite danced that beach like a prima ballerina, and Blane sported his favorite teams jersey and ball and showed off his soccer moves. A beautiful morning spent with great friends. Fly High Little Kite!
Discovery Park is a well kept secret, for despite it’s immense size, you can often hike it’s trails with hardly a soul in sight. However, for all it’s old growth trees, western sound vistas and waist high wheat, it is not always an easy pick for a portrait. That is because you have to commit to Discovery, walk far along it’s bunny trails to all the best spots, and realize that the hiking boots you retired for better weather would like to come back out and play. Serena and Mark spend alot of time here with their favorite furry friend. He in turn has many friends in the form of the Discovery Park Bunny Brigade. This pup leaps and jumps like the rabbits he adores, and really stole the show of our Solstice weekend portrait. Still, despite his adorable clowning we got a few photos of his mama and papa alone, especially near the lighthouse at the end of a spectacular summer night. Next time you feel the need to swap city for county, Discovery is the answer for you.
Ashley and John are long time clients, and if you’ve looked at my website much you can see their beautiful presence all over it. Little John Jr. came along exactly six months before this charming portrait shoot, and with his amazing abilities to sit up and show off his vintage radio flyer he is bound for some serious feats of strength in the future. So glad to have met you finally, John, and can’t wait to see what you can do at your one year photo!
There was literally one sunny day in March, and thankfully it was gifted on this lovely couple. Brian and Harmony had hired the fantastic Kevin Wrenn as their wedding photographer, and Kevin had brought me along for the ride as his second. Being Second photographer is so much fun, with only a fraction of the serious responsibility. We ran all over, and did quite a bit of leaping. Their reception was on the scansonia, and more on this later, but until then enjoy what sunbeams in Seattle can inspire.
