I feel like I need to put on my running shoes just to look at these fun, fast paced images by Seattle photographer Anita Nowacka! Too fun! And it's only fitting that these images be so action packed, as this is the family of Hollywood action photographer Jasin Boland! From Anita:
"I often photograph my subjects with dynamic approach, chasing and running after kids. This time was no different, my camera on 10 fps almost all the time, running after the family on wheels on legendary Venice Beach. I very much enjoyed photographing Jasin, and his family. He photographs so much himself, always on the go, whenever the next movie set might be, however this was his first official family photography session..... Just to prove the famous saying: "Shoemaker's kids wear no shoes""

What a fantastic use of place and personality! This series is so quintessentially L.A.: palm trees, sunglasses, the beach...life in L.A. must rule! But it is also a natural portrait of this family: a boy riding his skateboard, or snapping a picture (just like his dad!), the parents smiling, showing their little guy a good time. It's as though Anita just happened upon them taking a walk along the boardwalk, having a regular day. While it's routine nowadays for families to avoid wearing clothes with prints on them for photo sessions, they ignored that rule here, and with much success: how cool is mom's dragon shirt, and especially the little boy's jacket? So great! I love that the family is wearing clothes that they would normally wear on a regular day. This is exactly as all family sessions should be: chill, relaxed, and easy!
