28 Nov Best Child Photographer West Seattle | A Day In The Life shoot with a trip to Lincoln Park
It can so hard to open up your home to a photographer. To let her see the real you: dirty dishes and all after of night of very little sleep because the baby was up every hour. It takes trust, confidence and little bravery. Kate and her family were so welcoming and really embraced the concept of capturing a real day in the life. When I arrived, baby Morgan and Kate were still upstairs in bed so sweet little Benny took me on a tour of his favorite super heroes decorating his pajamas. When his mama came downstairs – blurry eyed from a night of very little sleep – she didn’t shy away from me or ask for a moment to dress up. She simply made breakfast and coffee.
Breakfast was followed by reading time and a wonderful dance party! Eventually, we found ourselves at Lincoln Park – one of their favorite family spots – in the middle of a downpour. But, not even the rain could keep these guys down. They simple put on their waterproof shoes and set out for a walk by the water. Benny found a river running down the stairs and was so fascinated by the torrent of water that we spent a good half hour in that one spot alone.
Which is why I LOVE this kind of session. When you take the time time constraints and expectations of perfection off of a family to simply allow them to be themselves, you get MAGIC!
