Downtown Cowans ~ Tacoma Family Photographer

When my faithful friends and frequent clients, the Cowan family, wanted to do a mini photo session this past fall, all of the usual locations went through my mind.  As many of you are probably aware, I usually do photo shoots in natural locations, so when their oldest daughter suggested that we do their session in downtown Tacoma, I was really excited for the change of scenery!

We started outdoors at the beautiful white Spanish Steps, then walked up to Opera Alley, which I had never actually been to before (shame, shame!).  The brick buildings and colorful doors and windows gave us many more options than we could even have chosen.  The low-light photos you'll see below were taken in the B Sharp Coffee House, in their original back rooms.  What a score that was!

I am definitely going to need to go back Downtown in the future for another shoot, and hopefully discover even more hidden gems like these!  But for now, scroll down and take a look at the lovely Cowan family, in all their hip, downtowny coolness.  ;)

Sisters!  I do love these girls.  :)

This was Opera Alley.  Such beautiful geometric architectural elements!

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't laughing as I took these shots.

A noisy photo with my ISO cranked super high... but sometimes the emotion of a shot compensates for technical details.

These siblings crack me up!  They're a very serious bunch, as you can plainly see...

And on that note, I will bid you all a fond goodnight!  Thanks for looking, and a BIG thank you to Breah for all of her on-the-spot posing and location ideas!
