Backyard wildlife | Bellevue Portrait Photographer

I had a little visitor about 30 minutes ago.  It made my day!  

Seeing and photographing the wildlife on the property brings me such joy.  It's very different from photographing client portraits, it's so much more challenging if I'm shooting through glass and even outdoors as these beautiful creatures do not remain idle for long after they've smelled, seen me or heard the click of my shutter.  Of course, mama is never far behind, which is something to be mindful of at all times.  I'm just as passionate about photographing wildlife as I am my portrait clients. Wildlife is like a spark and a wonderful compliment to my day job as a portrait photographer.

BUT THIS made my weekend!  Enjoy!

Wildlife challenge | Redmond Portrait Photographer

I was nominated by Stephanie Kuwasaki to do the Nature Photo Challenge for 7 days. Here is day 2.

This just happened last night! Momma bear and her two cubs, one of which climbed up a tree lightening fast when I went outside and the other not quite ready. The little one kept looking up and assessing the tall tree repeatedly (which was pretty cute) and decided to stay close to mom.

Momma kept one eye on the her cub that was already up the tree and she made eye contact with me, but when she went for a second helping (from my now broken latched bear resistant toter that she moved and got into with complete ease ) I wanted her to stop, so I didn't have garbage all over my yard--a little was fine, but seconds... no ;)

Please excuse the quality of these images, it was nearly dark and I was pushing my settings.
