I did a business headshot of mom awhile back and was pleasantly surprised to have her call and set up our time with Sofia. The family spent a lot of time exploring Fauntleroy Park as the kids grew up so this was the perfect place for us to shoot on this softly overcast day. I just love her easy smile. Sofia will graduate from Vashon High School and plans to further her education studying political science.
I was reminded that I last photographed Keegan when he was 6 months old during a family session – look at him now! A little quiet yet he was comfortable in front of the camera as we wandered through Lincoln Park on this wonderful overcast day. He will be graduating from West Seattle Lutheran High and intends to pursue the trades where I’m sure he will find much success.
I love it when past clients call me up to capture special times; even if the last time we got together was about 10 years ago! But the first time we met was when Cat brought James home from the hospital in her 2002 Subaru – which he is now driving today-time flies!
James will graduate from Chief Sealth where he is in the full International Baccalaureate program. He is also a member of the National Honor society and serves in a leadership role in the school’s Link Crew, mentoring underclassmen.
He’s looking forward to studying Engineering Mechanical and Materials; he’s received merit scholarships to Western Washington University and Washington State University and is still waiting to hear from UW and Oregon State!
In his spare time he enjoys photography, modifying his car, paint ball and Golf (2 year letterman). The future looks bright for this handsome young man.
I love the Clark family. Dianna was one of my first clients and we’ve been doing family sessions for the past 15-16 years! Imagine my surprise when she called to say it was time for Max’s senior pics – time does fly. So off we went to capture images on the beach. Max is a senior at Chief Sealth International H.S. He enjoys Biology and aspires working towards a profession in that subject. Max also enjoys playing baseball at the High school level as well as playing for West Seattle baseball club over the years. Wishing much success to this talented senior!
Mom called in a panic…do we have time to meet the yearbook deadline? Of course! I met up with Emily at Lincoln Park. Again, shooting in November is always a challenge but we managed to squeak in a great session before the rain began. Emily had gotten all sorts of advice from her model friends on how to pose… yet her natural stance, willing attitude and natural beauty came shining through. She was an easy subject for my philosophy on shooting…simple, honest, real.
And remember, it’s never too late for senior portraits.
I love it when high school seniors know what they want. Ci had some definite ideas on location and clothing as we headed to Discovery Park. With interesting trees to climb, fall colors, and beautiful fields we hit the jackpot! Take a look….
I’ve photographed Wyatt and his brother over the years and now it’s time for senior pics. How time flies! A handsome young man, we headed over to the park and did a walk from top to bottom. He’s into golf and tennis making the images more meaningful. Here’s a peek….
Marco is kinda shy but I think we got some great images as we wandered through Lincoln Park on down to the waters edge. Marco’s a pretty smart guy who enjoys mathematics and engineering. He has joined the track team and field team where he participates in the shot put and discus throw.
Most guys are somewhat anxious about their senior session but Jake breezed right through it. We went in search of the local ‘giraffes’ and industrial look at Jack Block park on Alki. Jake was always one step ahead of me and I think we found what he and mom were after….
Vanessa is a senior at Holy Names. She is a dancer and had a strong vision of what she wanted to accomplish as we moved through Lincoln Park close to sunset. I think you’ll agree she’s a graceful young woman. Here are my favorite images:
