In Which We Play At Being Models

So we drove up to the Olympic Sculpture Park this morning for our photo shoot with Kat and Justin!

The Olympic Sculpture Park, for those of you not familiar with the area, is a free public park affiliated with the Seattle Art Museum. They have several really cool permanent installations outside, and a large pavilion that contains a rotating exhibit. We met the very talented Kat and her awesome husband (and second shooter) Justin in the pavilion and went right to work! After taking some shots in their awesome orange chairs we headed outside some shots near the waterfront and with some of the large sculptures. Jer and I had a blast, but Connor seemed rather unsure about the whole situation. He finally warmed up and even gave us a few cute smiles and giggles, but then unfortunately the weather went south and it began raining. We ended up moving back indoors for a few more shots, and then we all drove over to Espresso Vivace for some very tasty coffee (or in my case, a very tasty steamer) and cookies.

We had a ton of fun! I can't wait to see some of the shots that Kat and Justin took-- patience is not on of my strong points. Hopefully Jer's somewhat cheesy I'm-Smiling-For-The-Camera smile and my ridiculous Throw-My-Head-Back-So-You-Can-See-Up-My-Nose laugh didn't mess up too many of the photos. I'm not worried about Connor; I have no doubt that he looks adorable in every single picture, even if he does have his hands in front of his mouth in half of them. He was switching between signing, "Don't like" and "All done."

Silly little guy.

Sounds like a great time, even if the weather didn't cooperate. Here's hoping the pictures arrive soon!
