I was called by Queen Anne mom Cecile to do an extended family portrait of 10 people-grandparents, two sets of parents and these children. And, we did those more structured pictures. But what I hope to achieve during those sessions as well, is also capturing these moments in between the more formal portraits. I love capturing natural emotion, and don’t want children to “smile for the camera. ” My hope is that you will find these as successful as I feel they are. Thanks for looking.
Carter is a very active two-year-old. It may look like he is standing still, but I can assure you, he was not! My photojournalism background comes in very handy when following children running around in their environment. Carter was photographed on-location in his West Seattle home. What a blast! I also photographed him jumping on his parents bed, running around naked (what a tush! -:)) and his quiet moods too. But we’ve save those for his parents. I love documenting children as they really are. Meryl
