This summer felt way way way too short, so it was really lovely to be able to spend one evening in August with this family, and their grandparents who were visiting all the way from South Africa. It’s not the first time I’ve photographed this family and their grandparents, but the last time they were living in a different house in a different part of Seattle. It was lovely to be able to capture their summer nights in their new home, closer to work and school, and also Lake Washington! Summer evenings often include an after-dinner swim in the lake, and this particular evening was no exception.
Here are some of my favorite still photographs from our session, plus the film at the end!
I’m pleased to now be offering documentary family film sessions just like this one as part of my offerings. If you’d love to have a slice of your family’s here and now immortalized in a 3-4 minute film, including the little voices, laughter, and non-stop movement that only video can capture, contact me for my special launch rate.
Carrie Yuan is a documentary family photographer in Seattle, Washington, specializing in documentary family photography sessions that honestly tell the story of your family’s here and now. Carrie’s passion is to document the full-of-love journey that is parenthood and childhood (with a sprinkling of humor), in all its chaos & beauty. Carrie lives in Seattle with her family: a husband who is the MOST kind and patient father, a six year old who wants to be the next Simone Biles, three year old boy/girl twins who have differentiated this year and are separately taking gymnastics & ballet, and a lab-ridgeback canine who won’t stop digging through my work bag and eating all my chocolate. Grrr.
Carrie is currently booking family documentary photo (and/or FILM…as in video) sessions (that do NOT require the purchase of new outfits, or cleaning your house) for Fall 2016 and beyond, in-home newborn sessions in the Greater Seattle area, and hospital newborn sessions in Seattle hospitals.
