That expression crosses my mind more and more each day, not only seeing my frients (Client/friends) kids change, but also watching my own kids rapidly grow up.
I recently started going through the daunting task of sorting my images for updating my website. While it has been overwhelming to choose about a hundred images from the tens of thousands, it has been very rewarding to see all of the families and children I have photographed in Seattle for over 15 years.
One of the perks of my job is to work with some of the same children and watch them grow and mature over time. It was so fun to see A. and her big brother J. this year. As I was photographing them for the fourth time in about ten years I remember one of our earliest portraits and found a spot that would mirror the same look. (I think we should try this one in another 10 years) Thanks M. for letting me document these two wonderful people.
