Let it (Fake) Snow! | Family Portrait Studio near Bellevue

Holiday-pictures-of-brother-and-sister-playing-in-fake-snow-at-Studio-B-Portraits photographed by Brooke ClarkI'm forever talking about "The Experience" and what it means to make a memory...not just a portrait.  Photographing the Paxton siblings is a perfect example of what I'm talking about.  Their parents have traditionally photographed the teens each year themselves but this year they were looking for a professional to create "something different, something special.  (Big hand up waiving as I yell..Um... I'm totally in!)  The family arrived with the most fantastic array of outfits and we made our way through the fabulous selection of clothing-eye-candy until we landed on our final picks.  Even though we weren't photographing Mom and Dad, it was still quite a bonding moment for everyone. It was so cool to see their folks working together styling the kids with accessories, straightening ties, selecting shoes and, smoothing fabrics...a true family affair. We started with some super chic formal looks and then moved on to this "Let It Snow" inspired studio look. (Side note: It has now occurred to me that we will be cleaning up "fake snow" for the next 5 years in the same fashion that we have been clearing glitter from our Senior Summer shoots...but honestly -- SO worth it!)  Oh and just in case you think pulling all this off is easy... I wanted you to see the funniest "Fake Snow Fail" -- (Our resident studio Snow Expert Robert clearly did not know his own strength when he launched the first snowball from off camera )
