Business photos in Seattle

schenker_portraits_businessd

While you most often see family portraits on this blog, I do lots of different types of photography. This image was produced for a magazine, what we call editorial photography, however I also am commissioned by individuals to do photographs like this for their own websites and/or other promotional materials.

Janine and Jon are both interesting and sweet on their own, but I love them as a couple! They wanted to do a portrait session before their wedding, which I also photographed. Two days before their wedding we went to the woods near where they live in West Seattle. They spend a lot of time there with their dogs (their family!) and wanted to preserve their memories. I hope I did them justice. They are just wonderful!

Senior Portraits in West Seattle

Olivia is an athlete and only had one weekend that worked for her, so we were going ahead with the photo session, rain or shine! Even though the forecast was for sun, when we met it was beginning to rain. Olivia and her mom were great sports. Her mom would hold the umbrella over her and then when we were ready to take the pictures, she’d quickly remove the umbrella and run out of the frame. After about 45 minutes, the sun came out, and her mom continued to be fabulous, playing assistant and holding my reflector. Thanks guys. You are terrific! Meryl

I had the best time with Lois, a local children’s book author, teacher and writer. Can’t wait for her book, Maddi’s Refrigerator, to be released!

After going back and forth on whether the studio or on-location would be best, we decided on her backyard for our photo session. The shade of the trees provided nice lighting. She felt much more relaxed in her own garden (environment) than she would have in my studio (not that my studio’s not relaxing!:)) I encourage you to consider having your portrait taken in an environment you love.

Law firm photography

When my client, Karen Koehler and SKWC, suggested doing a photo shoot that involved a more unique look, I was excited! No more lining people up! She used Annie Leibovitz’s work in Vanity Fair as an example of the look she was going for. Photographing large groups of people can be a challenge, but I couldn’t wait.  While the law firm is located in Seattle’s lower Queen Anne neighborhood, the shoot was at the Washington Athletic Club. The funny thing is that the photo was done as a general law firm portrait. But with Karen’s placement in the photo, it just happened to work great for an advertisement honoring Karen for inclusion on the 2012 Top 50 Women Washington Super Lawyers list. Congratulations Karen Koehler!
