I believe that a compelling portrait of a somebody – regardless of their age – should capture the essence of the person and make you want to take a second look…and maybe even a third. That’s why I love to be around kids and teens. They are compelling all on their own, before I take a single picture. To watch the way they think, laugh, reason, and figure out their way in an adult world can keep me both entertained and amazed. I love these people!
Location, location, location. We love to make our photoshoots fun, and what’s more fun than a vintage-themed session at Golden Gardens? Perhaps an urban shoot in downtown Seattle, or a Northwest explorer session at Discovery Park? Let us help you pick the perfect backdrop and customized theme for your child. We love highlighting the joy of childhood in our themed shoots, and are always looking for creative inspiration. Check out some of the fabulous ideas we’ve found on our Pinterest board for stylized kids photo sessions. You’ll be amazed at what can happen with an idea and a touch of creativity!
Don’t know what to wear? Check out our fashion style ideas on Pinterest! As part of your pre-session consultation, we will discuss appropriate and creative clothing choices, and also provide props and wardrobe pieces as necessary.
A $75 registration fee (per family) is required to take part in the book project for the Kids of the Northwest.
All final images from your session will be retouched and artistically enhanced. So no worries if you have a break-out at your session. Bumps, blemishes, under-eye shadows…we’ve all had them at one time or another, and we all want them gone! Your final images will be expertly retouched to remove these imperfections, giving you the natural look you want.
Approximately one-two weeks following your session, an in-person viewing session will take place at our home studio, at which time you’ll see all of your images on our large high-definition screen. We’ll help you through the ordering process to determine which assortment of prints, albums, canvases or collages are best for you.
Participation in the Kids of the Northwest project is completely voluntary, and no purchase is required.
