My name is Anita Nowacka (pronounced Novatzka). I am a nationally recognized photographer, with 12 years of experience photographing professionally. I specialize in unique family photography, spontaneous portraits of children in Seattle, WA area, weddings and life celebrations. I also enjoy and have extensive experience photographing headshots, CD covers, publicity materials, and products. I am located in Seattle and am available to travel. I welcome unconventional photography assignments:
When I photograph, I rely upon a subject, viewpoint and the natural light of the moment. Photographing people involves both the predictable and the unknown. My objective in every photo session is to create images that display spontaneity while also expressing the beauty and temperament of the subject. I am not people-shy, but agile, involved, and active throughout the session. I focus on the unexpected, humorous, or touching moments that may arise. This spontaneity naturally occurs but can also be instigated through my direction. Thus I call my style “directed photojournalism”- a balance between the carefree and the guided, with attention to composition and the uniqueness of each subject. In the end, though: my style reflects your style.
