The Anawalts call every year for the annual holiday photo. Capturing images at this time of year is always weather dependent but the crisp early morning air and sun breaks all worked in our favor. Traversing the property we found lots of interesting areas for the pics. We go through our ritual of groupings including mom and dad, mom with the girls, dad with the girls and the family all together.
Remember, it’s always a great time to capture family images….
When it’s time to do a family photo it’s time, no matter what the weather! It was sunny, brite, and chilly but we got the shots! Toward the end the boys started doing their own thing. Of course, those are the best! I photographed mom and dad at one or two school auctions several years ago. I’m glad I finally got the chance to work with all of them!
but by afternoon the sun came out in time for the annual Anawalt family holiday photo session! The girls just get prettier each year! Our session was easy, quick and FUN!
It was a beautifully overcast day at the waters edge. Perfect for family photos. Don’t ya just love the cute skirts on the girls!
I just love this event. Seeing families come together to play in the sun can’t help but make you smile. Some of these families have come thru the photo line since it’s inception. So glad to be part of their family history. Thanks to everyone who made this event possible! To find your photos click here.
I’m late in posting this but remember our hot sunny Seattle days of just a couple weeks back? I took a walk with Zoe and Dylan along the Seattle waterfront. Lots of activity, lots of sun, lots of fun!
What do you give the guy who is celebrating his 90th Birthday!? How about a family reunion! Claudine called to arrange for a family photo of all the guests who came from near and far to celebrate this grand milestone for Tom. They gathered at Ivar’s Salmon House for a tasty dinner and lots of chit-chat; some not having seen each other in 30 years! What a special way to celebrate. I hope I have enough stamina to make it to my 90th Birthday!
Named after mom’s love of baking little Baby Emmer was born a short 3 weeks ago. She seemed to take her first photo shoot all in stride but I can’t wait until her first birthday when we create a scene in mom’s kitchen! BTW, I photographed Malia’s wedding about 2 years ago so I’m honored to have captured these first images for them of life with baby.
I’ve been photographing the Anawalt family for 6-7 years now. It always amazes me how fast the girls are growing up. Even though we’ve used their front and back yard many times for a backdrop I often find new corners of inspiration. The girls decided they wanted their picture taken on the trampoline. I think we got it! Here’s a little peak at the family pics.
I met Natalia and Carson at the water in Lincoln Park for our photo shoot. Carson was more interested in scouring the stones for jellyfish and such so I got plenty of interaction shots of brother and sister. Natalia was willing to ‘pose on command’ and showed off her cute smile. I managed to catch fleeting smiles of Carson on the run. Mom felt glad that we got this session done in time for the holidays….yes the holidays! Can you say ‘christmas cards!’.
