For this year’s family pictures with the Wadlow’s, Mom Michelle decided that we’d be heading out for a Fall Spectacular! Luckily the weather more than cooperated with us (because sometimes you know, we decide one thing and Seattle weather doesn’t get on board…but not this day!) I love the wardrobe choices for each of girls in their Ugg boots and Autumn color pallette but it’s the clever styling of Mom in her hounds-tooth pants with chocolate riding boots and Dad’s green sweater & yellow pant combination that is just off-the-charts photogenic. This was one of the shortest family picture shoots we’ve ever had together and thankfully…nobody ended up in tears (of course I’m meaning the grown-ups ) Outdoor family portraits have the potential to be inherently more relaxed because the babes can just let loose and enjoy being kids while the parents are freed from having to worry about bull in the china shop syndrome. Win/Win for everyone. I posted another favorite on our Facebook page here.
It’s time to play one of my favorite games…YEP, guess this Senior’s Celebrity Look-A-Like! I was so proud of myself for figuring it out within just a few clicks of his first wardrobe change. Spoiler alert — it’s Schmidt from New Girl – of course I need to point out that Harrison from Issaquah High School is the taller– even more handsome version of the two This 2014 Senior boy had me at hello as soon as he told me he actually enjoyed being photographed — okay…so that was completely charming — I liked you before, but NOW– well welcome to my Fav 5 Top Senior Guy Photo Shoot List Oh and BIG shout out to his Mom for the beautiful styling she did on her son– loving the plaid shirt with navy sweater & khaki pant with coordinated shoe — SO sharp. We posted one other fab senior picture of Harrison our Facebook page here
Issaqauah High School Senior Alexis is just pretty from any angle so it only felt right to give you tons of fun poses – big thank you to a musical assist by Blurred Lines, Robin Thicke for his musical inspiration:-) Just love her super cute stripe top and leather a-line skirt with white kicks!
So wow, the day just could not have been any better for a great outdoor Fall Family Portrait and the Korssjoen crew reminded me again why I absolutely love being a photographer. It’s just so obvious how much this fab four gets along and it was tons of fun playing in the gorgeous sun and autumn leaves. There is rarely a photo shoot that doesn’t have some sort of surprise for me…and this one was not lacking either — How about younger sister Dana spontaneously climbed a tree (um…twice). I’m pleased to report that there were zero injuries…she’s apparently quite versed in this type of behavior!!! Oh…side note — I keep getting asked about “the perfect time for fall family pictures” Ding! This is it. We’ve got a 3 week window in Seattle where the colors are phenomenal…and this is it
Kentridge High School Senior Katriana was SO pretty in her black and white striped sweater and cutie little knit hat that I just knew this was look that had to be featured but it was her kitty — also black & white — that had me cracking up. She brought her cat to be in a few of her senior pictures and it was like a crazy game of hide & seek trying to get him to stay on set long enough to actually click a frame. We got it though….I posted that one to our Facebook page here
