I’m just gonna go out on a limb and declare these the BEST school portraits in Seattle! Haha! I had so much fun in the Fall photographing all of these kids over the course of two days. Their personalities ranged from quiet, shy and reserved to the other end of the spectrum of LOUD, silly and just plain fun.
My approach is to capture a truly authentic portrait. I never ask the kids to smile. I simply converse with them, spend the precious few minutes I have with each child getting to know a little bit about them and allowing themselves to open up and show whatever it is they would like to share with me. It’s amazing the kinds of expressions I’m able to capture when I allow the kids to just be themselves.
Instead of sharing my single favorite image of each child who’s parents allowed me to share, I decided to put together the individual galleries so that you could appreciate the range of expressions from these amazing kids! The parent response to the photos was awesome, and I’m so thrilled that I could provide them with what I truly believe are the best school portraits in town!
I’m looking to add one Seattle school to my spring 2015 schedule, so if you have a child who attends a school and you think families would be interested in this service, let’s get in touch via the Contact form to your left. I’ll take care of pitching the project to your school administrator!
