About Anita:

My name is Anita Nowacka (pronounced Novatzka). I grew up on the stormy beaches of the Baltic Sea, a place of variegated moods and dramatic and inspiring images. As a child, my only camera was an imaginary one, but I was content to develop pictures in my mind. Even now, my imagination thrills when I hold a real camera. I am amazed how it is possible to capture emotion, wit, determination and intelligence through such a supremely technical craft.

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. I am agile, involved, and active throughout the session. I focus on the unexpected, humorous, or touching moments that arise during a session. This spontaneity naturally occurs but can also be instigated through direction by me, the photographer. 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. All sessions take place under natural light.

I am a nationally recognized photographer, with 12 years of experience photographing professionally. I specialize in outdoor 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 like this Heli Skiing Wedding photo shoot:

Maybe, but remember she only uses natural light. No flash or reflectors, only natural light.
