Darcy, Lee, and Anton | Seattle Family Photography

I met Darcy and Lee and their two-year-old son, Anton, in Volunteer Park with for a family photo session during Seattle’s December cold snap. It was, literally, a frosty cold morning, but quite sunny and really altogether beautiful. The morning light had that diffuse, ethereal wintry feeling to it that we so rarely get here in Seattle. Justin and I had a great time wandering the park with these three. The photos from this session are some of my all-time favorites!

Darcy, who was pregnant with her second son, Logan, (see a few maternity photographs here!) was so full of energy for being near-term. I hope I feel that good when I’m pregnant someday! Little Anton was so sweet with both his parents, very quiet, contemplative, and playful. He was super sad when we had to leave.

I’m looking forward to seeing the whole family again when I visit them for photos of new baby Logan. I can’t wait!

Isn’t Anton SO cute in his plaid? I love the old-timey feeling of those photos above…

He loves being held by his mom and dad, but was just as eager to run across the lawn all on his own…Check out the frost on the grass. It was almost noon when we took these pictures. To have frost that late in the day is really rare for Seattle winters. It was C-O-L-D. But we all stayed warm running here and there, and Anton didn’t seem to be bothered by the 20-degree weather at all!

Oh my! Those eyes… There’s another one in this set that just blows me away. Two of my favorite child portraits from one session. Lucky day!

Baby Anton has had enough of posing for photographs and makes known his intentions to go elsewhere

I luuuuv those two pictures. Anton wanted his mom & dad to swing him by his arms, and they wanted him to hold their hands for a photograph. When he realized he wasn’t getting swung, he just let go of his dad’s hand and pouted. So cute.

Anton would much rather be at the Volunteer Park playground. He doesnBaby Anton

There are those eyes again. That last shot is my favorite. Anton extremely photogenic. Especially when he’s at the playground. He just loves to play on the slide… his whole face lights up.

Anton knows it

Dad smiles and Anton sticks out his tongue in this black and white portrait

Anton wasn’t happy that his slide time was over. He did his best to stick his bottom lip out in a mini-pout whenever he remembered. Mom had to cajole and distract him until he forgot he wasn’t at the playground any more.
