    Formal and fun childrens portraits for Holidays_Studio B Portraits_0295.jpg

    I honestly don’t know why at some point during all of my children’s portrait sessions– and I do mean ALL of them…we end up in a pile of giggles on the floor — but we do.  Olivia in her royal blue formal frock and Brennan in his faux hawk and bow tie combo — laughing, uncontrollably following a very ambitious dance party!  What a joy-filled job I have:-)  It’s almost hard for me to wrap my mind around how much they have grown since our last photo shoot together and I wasn’t content to just share these — I also posted another of my favorites on our Facebook page here.

    This amazing set of family pictures with the Friedrichsen’s is either going to make you super excited that the beautiful Fall leaves are still happening — OR kind of “bitter party of one” because it’s not actually YOU kissing under the gorgeous Autumn colors above.  And to add insult to injury btw ….you and I are one step closer to (cue the announcer voice) “Welcome to Winter…Home to Sideways Rain Seattle” – heehee, I’m actually right with you… I have been meaning to photograph my own family for the last two weeks and it still hasn’t happened!  Okay…so clearly I’m always good for a little snarky comment about the weather but there is a total upside — it honestly doesn’t matter….and here’s why —   If it rains — we just shoot in our studio and you are going to look fabulous.  (You can check out our Portfolio of images and you’ll see that I’m telling the truth…tons of backdrops, cool furniture…it’s endless)  You might be surprised to hear that when Mom Penny arrived with her fellas for their family session…she was completely open to either outside or inside…her pretty geometric blue dress and the guys coordinating colors were a beautiful compliment for both settings but ultimately we decided that it might be fun to let their sweet baby boy celebrate the season.  And celebrate he did — the only one more excited than this photogenic 22 month old was his photographer — I knew before I even clicked the camera that it was going to be magic.

    Speaking of Family Portraits, this is probably a great time to remind you about our K.I.S.S Event (Holiday Card + November Session Special). Click here for details


    Great family portraits of parents with adult sons_Studio B Portraits_0290.jpg

    Everyone has their flavor of family portrait and what I’ve learned about my particular taste…I like to “feel something” — I guess I can count myself lucky because that particular quality can outshine any type of trend, theme, classic, modern or vintage bend…As long as I am moved — it’s like “let’s do it.”  Don’t get me wrong….great posing and pretty lighting are a must…but after that — bring on the snuggle, shut your eyes and laugh with abandon, get serious and soulful…I love it all!  The contemporary twist on a classic family portrait (like the absolutely lovely Kenney Family here) is embracing the emotion and affection of the moment….a look that never goes out of style for me.  I’m about to tell on myself…but my measure of a great portrait is “…could someone look at people they don’t even know….and  feel the connection, see the emotion…maybe secretly want to be in their family;-)”  If the answer is YES, I know we have a winner!
