PORTRAITS: The Wirth Family

This past Tuesday evening found me taking my tiny Honda Civic up a winding dirt road in a small town in Juanita County. As I was bouncing up the road, I determined that I should have taking my wife’s 4WD – she’s always right! The road bends and I immediately see a beautiful house and what looks like a kid’s paradise. I see rope swings. I see a pond. I see a wooden ramp in front of the pond. Just by the looks of the surroundings, I knew I would enjoy the evening. Enjoy it, I did.

I was hired to shoot some baby portraits as a gift to the family from a close relative. Titan (cool name, by the way!) was born just a little over a week ago. He was interested in two things – warmth and sleep, as most newborns are:

We headed outside their house for some pictures of Titan with each of his siblings:

We then headed back inside for pictures of just Titan. These last three were my absolute favorites in different ways: The first, because I now really want a sheepskin rug to sleep in like that. It looks really comfy.


This second one, because I play piano myself. Photographically, I love the different textures all in the same photo.


Lastly, just looking at this picture relaxes me. Not that I suck my thumb or anything.


I had a blast with you guys! I’ll have to stop by again to get pictures of Hunter nabbing some huge air off of that ramp.There are a lot more fabulous pictures to check out right here.
