{Two Sisters} Seattle Area Child Photographer

January 31st, 2012

I’m a out loud talker. If I’m in the grocery store, I’m the person talking about what’s on my list, and where can I find the red wine vinegar. My husband makes fun of me for doing this, but even he concedes that when you ask for something, you have a better chance of someone […]

 

I’m a out loud talker. If I’m in the grocery store, I’m the person talking about what’s on my list, and where can I find the red wine vinegar. My husband makes fun of me for doing this, but even he concedes that when you ask for something, you have a better chance of someone answering your question than if you never ask aloud. The age old adage, “ask and you shall receive”. Along that vein, a friend of mine was posting on a social media site that all her parents wanted for Christmas was a picture of both her girls together in the dresses they received from grandma. There were several problems with getting the picture as a) my friend works out of the house, b) the girls are both under the age of three and dragging them to the mall seemed like a chore and c) it was about a week before Christmas. I offered to come over to her home and take pictures of her girls for her. I’m way behind in my blogging, since these pictures were taken last month, but it was a win-win situation for everyone. Thank you for letting me photograph your adorable daughters!

 

Meet Older Sis. She was a hoot to capture on camera, and was so fun!

 

Ok, sit primly in this chair? I can do that for you, Ms. Photographer.

 

Little Sister was a tougher nut to crack to get to smile at me.

 

Look at those eyes! So soulful.

 

Older Sis was a dream, she pretty much did anything I asked. I love her expression here! It came out a lot.

 

But oh so adorable.

 

I finally coaxed a real smile from Little Sister

 

Oh look, I got them both into the same frame! Aren’t those dresses just precious?

 

And a last picture of a pretty pretty pink princess.

{The H Family Twins} One Year Old – Seattle Area Child Photographer

I had the pleasuring of meeting this family at Lincoln Park  in West Seattle for our photoshoot.  The mom had graciously responded to my inquiry about photographing her twin daughters for my portfolio.  I’m still working on building my skills in photographing siblings, and these cute one year old sisters gave me a run for my money!  Lincoln Park is a beautiful location, so we let the kids run around and I snapped away as many shots of them together as I could.  I was kicking myself as I got to the park as I realized I had forgotten my bag of toys, whistles, and snacks to entice the kids to look at my camera at home!  Alas, a lesson well learned.  Here’s a sneak peek of their photos.

Meet {Miss D} and {Miss E}.  Don’t let this fool you, they rarely both looked at the camera at the same time for me.

Most of my shots of the girls looked like this, with neither of them looking at me

I convinced them to play peek a boo behind the log with me

Their mom bribed them to sit still with snack foods.  I have a lot of shots with one of them eating.  🙂

We headed to the playground area of the park to see if we could get more shots with both of them.
