Family Photographer North Seattle : Hedin

I had never seen Carkeek Park and the sound as calm as it was the morning we photographed this session.  It was eerily calm.  Carkeek park is one of my favorite North Seattle beaches, partly due to the consistent winds here.  I usually come here expecting to get family photographs with lots of blowing hair and movement, but not this day.  It was so calm there was about 20 fly fisherman wading in the calm water, teasing the fish for an early morning bite.

It all worked out well because we had rescheduled this outdoor family photo session at least four times!  That’s bound to happen when you are a family photographer in North Seattle.  I also had my friend Bonnie Hussey out videotaping this session for an upcoming promo video (more details coming soon). :)

Ali, who is also a good friend, had the family dressed in beautiful bright colors, which were perfect for the overcast, calm day.  I think that extra pop of color did more than provide a chromatic feast for our eyes!

Adam and Ali’s three kids are awesome.  And they are so dang cute!  I mean, scroll down.  Look at them.

I love all of the pics, but the one that shows them facing forward and their backs too is so cool!

Thank you, Heather!! That double exposure is one of my favorites too! :)
