It was a chilly December afternoon when I met these great people for their family photos. Just like my husband and I, they had recently moved to Seattle because of a job at Amazon. It seems that everyone we meet in Seattle is here either working for Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Boeing, or the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation! While I'm not completely used to the Seattle "gloom", there is beauty here that you just don't find in Southern California. The leaves change color and the lush green landscape follows you wherever you go. It's really beautiful.
