Seattle Family Portrait | Ballard

One may think, what’s the big deal? It’s a big deal. Baby and dog on camera. It’s a big deal. Did I say that?

I know I know, photojournalism etiquette – doesn’t matter explaining it, having gotten it or not gotten it; the job is to deliver. I’m explaining it anyway.

Mom and Dad were about the best ever with staying steady at my lens so I had only two to work. Ample clowning is required.

Love it when all parts align right on up….
