Where the music matters | Seattle Family Photographer | Evidence of Life Photography

Cappuccinos to the sound of independent radio at La Marzocco (a.k.a. the KEXP radio cafe) while we waited for the Seattle drizzle to slow down. Our three year old birthday girl was a little cautious at first, but after a few sips of her cappuccino, she was ready for dancing in the photo gallery, exploring the Seattle street art, and kicking up leaves on the way to the Space Needle. A perfectly Seattle Kid way to celebrate your third birthday...

I just love how homey and full of natural light the KEXP cafe is. I can't believe this was my first visit. I've already been back in for coffee twice since. I just love it.

A mighty big coffee made with love for three year old hands.

No pictures yet, please, I haven't had my coffee yet.

A family toast to the birthday girl!

Love all around.

Tasty coffee down. Now let's dance!

Time to check out the artwork. Look at that gorgeous waterfall!

The rain slowed down enough to take the walk through Seattle Center we originally planned!

Happy girl with mom and dad.

A pretty mural with lots of northwest trees under a night sky.

Lips as big as your head!

Making our way to the Space Needle for birthday girl brunch.

Centennial Fountain is on water conservation mode so we can walk close.

The windy drizzle came back. Who needs a fountain to get wet? This is Seattle.

Ahh shelter!

Time for a drip dry with dad.

Time to get warm and snuggly.

The rain stopped!

The search for the perfect autumn leaf.

Mom tickles are the best.

Is that the psychedelic purple haze of the EMP I see? 


Heather Reis Fike | I am a portrait and wedding photographer and a lifelong Seattle-ite. My little world is wrapped up in my soulmate, Josh; my soul-mutt, Lola; and all the people who let me capture a little glimpse into their lives on film. For as long as I can remember, I have loved photographing people. I find inspiration in humanity - our uniqueness, but also our commonality. Read more...
