Alki Beach Academy

Unique children's portraits for Seattle based, Alki Beach Academy.

For the last few years, I've been hired by Alki Beach Academy in West Seattle to photograph all the kids at the school.

It's been such a joy to capture these moments. As a dad of fast-growing children, I know all too well how special it is to freeze time. When I am doing portraiture, my goal is to capture raw, honest moments. It was fun to see the range of emotion in these little faces- surprise, delight, joy, curiosity, wonder. Often the moments we don’t capture in a photo are the ones where children are their true, unfiltered selves without pressure from the outside world to project otherwise. Through organic, fast sessions we get a window into this true self. And in this case, over 150.

It's been great shooting the same students year over year and seeing how they've grown.
