She is a fellow photographer and friend who just moved up to West Seattle from California.  We first met at one of the last FIND workshops in Park City about three years back, and have journeyed in our love of film together ever since.  We have also found our love for one of our favorite photographers, Yan Palmer, and worked on finding our voices and finding out what that thing is that we do.  This is all touchy-feely, but that’s what a big part of being creative is all about.

You can imagine how thrilled I was when she contacted me to shoot an in-home session with her and her newly-relocated family to my neck of the woods.  And the cherry on top?  She said, be as creative as you want.  This is your show.  So, yeah, that’s super intimidating and I immediately felt the pressure (from me, not from her) and had to take many deep breaths from that conversation up until the shoot actually started.  And then it just kind of all slipped away as I started watching and interacting, my mind buzzing with compositions.

To say this is one of my favorite sessions to date is a bit of an understatement.  It felt so natural and RIGHT.  And it is what I want to do until the cows come home.  This is what I do, and I can’t get enough of it.  I hope you love the images as much as I do.

Feel free to check out other in-home family sessions here!
