Sometimes you gotta be amazed at life and the amazing encounters you get to have.
When I met Teresa a few years ago, it was because my daughter and her son went to the same preschool in Issaquah. We exchanged a few conversations here and there, and I was so surprised to find out that we actually went to the same middle school and high school! Only that she was one grade ahead of me – which essentially means that we were at the same school for 5 years but didn’t know each other. Life brought us both to Seattle somehow years later. When she reached out to me and said she was so sure that she wanted me to photograph her family this year, I was utterly flattered.
She told me that my style is exactly what she was looking for. That she wanted to document life with her kids as is, that she really liked my candid and authentic style.
We met at Confluence Park in Issaquah. It was a beautiful warm fall afternoon. We all had so much fun and I was able to capture these images for her.
