Hudson Portrait Designs Captures your Moments in Time
Family, Love, and Legacy
There are certain moments in our lives that are too important to not document and Hudson Portrait Designs has been there to capture it all.
Over 40 years of dedication to his craft, Bruce Hudson has become one of the most sought after photographers for Weddings, Senior Portraits, and memorable family moments. Here in the Northwest and throughout the world photos taken by Hudson Portrait Designs are proudly displayed.
From Hobby to Profession
A native to Washington, Bruce was raised in the Kent area. It was during his time at Kent-Meridian High School that he discovered his love for photography. After years of shooting weddings as a side gig, he and his wife Sue, decided to take the leap and pursue Hudson Portrait Designs full time. In 2006 their son, Josh Hudson joined the family business. He has followed in the steps of his mother, who passed in 1996, taking care of marketing, day to day operations, and keeping his Dad busy.
Engaging with the Community
A good Photographer will observe a moment, a great photographer will engage in the moment. It’s the engagement Bruce shares within his community that makes his work so authentic.
Together Bruce and Josh continue being active members at the Renton Chamber of Commerce and are co-creators of Renton Live. Renton Live streams from YouTube every Wednesday night at 6 pm and is a way for the community to stay connected while remaining physically apart. In April their “Invest it Forward” Promotion for the Soup Ladies went well and helped raise 400 Meals. They continually donate to school functions and can be seen around town engaging in an active conversation about local politics and ways to keep our corner of the world a wonderful place to be.
They know the area. The whole family lives here, dines here, and more than likely you’ve been somewhere in town or in someone's home and seen their work displayed.
A photo well shot should be an introduction to who you are. It's the photographer's job to show how you interact with your surroundings. Whether you are a grandmother enjoying a moment of joy with your grandkids at Phillip Arnold Park, or a Dad docking the family boat at Coulon Beach Park dressed in matching attire with all 7 members of your squad, Hudson Portrait Designs will take photos that not only capture the moment but capture the story within the moment. This is the Authentic nature that Bruce and his team bring to the table. When you get your photo session proofs back from Hudson Portrait Designs you will get more than a set of stunning photos. You will receive captured moments that are relatable to who you are.
The Power of Portrait Photography
One of the best things to happen in 2020 has been the Senior portraits proudly displayed in the yards of the newly graduated. Your routine of walking through the neighborhood becomes more fun and intimate seeing these signs. Giving us a glimpse into the world of our neighbors. Senior portraits express a time of opportunity, hope, youth, and represent a rite of passage. A monumental moment we all can remember.
Senior portraits are more important than ever. Most districts in our area will continue to conduct school online. Leaving our kids more isolated and reliant on a screen for connection. These portraits have become a symbol of hope for our future. A symbol that will be displayed in yards, and on walls in our homes for years to come.
Hudson Portrait Designs has tens of thousands of Senior portraits under their belts. They continue to capture the senior year for young adults throughout the region. They have some great specials going on that you can find here www.seniorsbyhudsons.com

Stories of Portraits
COVID has not slowed down this workaholic. Bruce is currently putting together a book he hopes will be available by the beginning of next year. The pages are filled with beautiful photography.
