Cummings family, Volunteer Park Seattle WA

Shooting families and spending time with kidlets is my perfect kind of photo shoot. There is a silent and beautiful balance of need and chaos amongst young families. I am in awe of the wonderful energy, the non-stop getting to the next thing, cleverness, plain honesty, and charm of children. The Cummings will be leaving Seattle soon for DC so they wanted to document how life here was when Mae and Whitaker were little. We ran around Volunteer park freezing cold but I am glad I was able to help create these memories for them.

Alison sent me a beautiful email after receiving her photos. She said something that will stick with me a long time.

“The photos that you took will allow me to show my children that I am “perfectly their mother.” Does it get any better than that?!
