Another fabulously fun family session in Seattle. I love getting to photograph friends - there's an intimacy there that you can't deny, and it makes for some way-easy portrait taking on my part. Erika and I worked together many years ago, and then our lives continued to parallel in our marriages, babies, and starting our own businesses. It was a pleasure getting to catch up with her, meet her youngest for the first time, and see how much her first baby has grown (she's 5 weeks younger than my eldest!)! They are such a cool, easy going family. A session at Alki Beach in Seattle was a perfect fit. Can't wait to photograph them again on my next visit out!

Nora and I went to middle school together. 20 years ago. In Texas. We found each other again on Facebook. She now lives in Washington (my adopted home state). She was pregnant with her 2nd son and the photographer she had used for years had retired. She said she wished I lived closer so I could do her newborn pictures. I joked with her that if she flew me out I would happily take pictures of her new son and family. She booked me a flight immediately. And thus our friendship was renewed, I got to enjoy a mini-getaway to my beloved city, and most importantly I got to take portraits of this gorgeous family in a city of stunning, filtered light. I also have 3 other sessions to share with you (as well as several beautiful local Colorado sessions that I am way behind on adding to the blog)!
Thank you B family for...everything! Hope to see you again in another year or so!!
