When Sara and I talked through her desires for the final product of this shoot, she mentioned that she wanted to have the session in her mother's (very cool) custom Seattle home. A photographer had once photographed her family in the home (many years ago) and she loved the way the personality of the house was captured in the photos. Since I don't usually shoot indoors for family shoots, I knew this would be a unique session, and I began recalling each room in the house in terms of natural light. Thankfully, that's something this home has a lot of! (That- AND personality!) The end result is that we essentially added a fourth "person" to the session: the house itself!
In my preparations for the shoot, I got more and more excited about this idea of the setting being not just a pretty backdrop, but a "character" in each photo. With a house as eclectic and beautiful as this one, it was not hard to find interesting locations. Indoors and outdoors, I hope you'll find the scenery as varied and fun as you're used to seeing in my session wrap posts- and perhaps even more so!
So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down and take a walk through this very fun photo session- and get to know Sean, Sara, and their adorable little girl, Sophie!
|Have you ever noticed how famous people are often photographed in their living rooms? It does lend itself to a certain elegant style...|
|Aren't these two cute together? The camera certainly thinks so!|
|I loved shooting along these little garden step-paths in the back and side yard.|
|I wish I could remember what she was doing or saying to them in this one!|
|And I'll end on one of my favorites from the whole shoot. What a sweet moment!|
As always, thanks for looking, and I hope to be able to post some photos of my own new little one in a few weeks. We'll see!
