When I received an email from this mother inquiring about a photo-session I was THRILLED when she used the words that most documentary-style photographers love to hear from their clients – creative, candid and fun. She had already gotten her yearly “everybody smile and look at the camera” shots and she really wanted some photos the showed the personalities of her kids and the love that she has for them. Enter me. 🙂
I had this hair-brained idea that it might be fun to head down to Alki beach and go tide-pool hunting…in January. Ummmmm…can we say, not the best idea in the world for freezing conditions?! She and her boys were seriously troopers as we wandered about and took a few photos before finally calling it good. Bonus? We get to do it again…in better weather. It wasn’t a total bust, though… see below for evidence. If you scroll all the way down there is also a fun little video that Dave put together with his new fancy camera.
Brooke I hope you like your mini-session preview!
