Turning One | Seattle Family Photographer
There is something soft, tender and real about this session. I really love it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I feel my photography transforming.
As a budding photographer, you will do just about anything. Even take pictures of dog birthdays (been there, done that). You will work for anyone who hires you. The experience and opportunity to work with clients is invaluable. I am celebrating three years in the photography business soon and I feel my photography slowly and beautifully changing.
Through hard work and rigid tenacity, I can proudly and excitedly say that I am on page one of Google. This has offered me the opportunity to cherry pick my clients and my work. This feat in any business is a wonderful accomplishment. Feeling comfortable to say no to a customer is a rare and beautiful thing. As an artist, you are able to create the images you want. You are able to express your talent and gifts in a way that speaks to your soul and pray your clients see what inspires you so much.
This session expresses just that. It embodies poses that Grandma would love, and an authentic glimpse into the lives of a family connecting with one another. Instead of a “cake smash” for their child’s First Birthday, this family wants to remember their little one being the person they have come to know and love. His personality shines, the moments filled with love they share as a family are captured, and for a split second in time, his life is now still. So still that generations can go back and see him, see them, as they were in this very- moment.
This is the type of photography I love, the photojournalistic approach. Capturing what makes this family unique and real is my calling.
Of course, like any artist, I truly hope my vision translates to the customer’s expectations.
Happy Birthday Mister and many, many more to come.
