I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people through my job. I hope that I give a little bit of that joy back through my photos.
I’m also really thankful that I don’t live in Arizona. It’s not that I wouldn’t like 70 degree weather right now, but the sunlight there is always almost directly over head. That makes really ugly photos unless you overpower it with a flash to fill in the shadows. My husband says he never noticed the light until he married a photographer. Here in the Pacific Northwest, especially in Eastern Washington, the light is always so beautiful. So while I lament that it’s dark by 4:30 p.m. now, at least the light is that beautiful rose or golden color most of the day.
Speaking of taking pictures in gorgeous light, a recent family portrait session with a Connell family was so much fun. Their three beautiful daughters had so much vitality and personality. I especially loved that their middle daughter spent her time there on an “adventure” looking for dolphins in Scootney Reservoir. Lets hope she found them!
