Seattle family portraits at Golden Gardens
Take a moment to check out the Rosso family portraits, you won’t regret it! A few weeks ago we went to Golden Gardens beach in Seattle’s famous Ballard neighborhood, one of my favorites! We played around taking portraits for oh-about an hour on this beautiful sunny Seattle Sunday morning. Everyone was feeling like we got lucky to have the beach to ourselves, (ooooh – by lucky I mean, we showed up super early before the crowds) and were able to explore through the trees, down to the water and towards the rocky shore. Golden Gardens beach has SO much to offer for backgrounds in a portrait session!!
Adorable little Nico is just six months old right now, a ridiculously fun age, probably one of my favorites!! He’s smiling, can sit up on his own, hates to eat sand! (I mean, besides his brother Luigi don’t we all hate eating sand?!) Oh, and Nico LOVES it when his Grandma Linda sings “The Wheels on the Bus”!! That song makes him smile EVERY time!!
Nico LOVES flirting with the ladies and doesn’t mind being on camera at all, I hope this phase lasts throughout high school! 🙂
One of my favorite things about being a family portrait photographer is being able to capture a moment in time. To be able to document a little piece of history for the families who hire me.
Maybe it sounds silly, but as much as we enjoy these photos right now, posting them on Facebook & Instagram we are really taking them for our future selves! It really is so lovely to print a few favorite photographs, either frame them or put them in an album and bring them out on special occasions. You know, high school graduations, first dates, think about when Nico grows up and has a family of his own and him showing his babies these photos!! It makes me want to cry right now, SLOW DOWN TIME!!
When Nico was just a two weeks old I was lucky enough to photograph his newborn photos (the SWEETEST) and his Mama (the beautiful Andrea you see here) mentioned to me that she LOVES them because that time of her life was such a blur, that it’s hard to remember everything and she loves looking through the photos and remembering how tiny he really was!
Here are a few of my favorite images from the Rosso family portrait session, where Ralph’s mom and brother were able to join us from the east coast for a few photos, I hope you love them as much as I do!!
