Graduation time for James

 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.

Senior Pics with Max

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!

Katherine’s Senior Session

It’s been a great weekend for senior portraits; especially outside here in West Seattle. I had the pleasure of working with Katherine, a senior at Chief Sealth High School. We took a walk through Lincoln Park stopping at some of my favorite spots and ended down by the water. Hey, if you are wondering where the Fauntleroy white swans went – they’ve been relocated to Vashon Island and are doing well!

Here are my favorite images of Katherine:

Maddy’s walk through Lincoln Park

We bumped up Maddy’s session due to forthcoming rain and the day was well chosen. The soft light highlighted her features just perfectly.  Dressed casually we wandered through the park and then headed to the water. Maddy plans to pursue a degree in nursing.  She’s got the perfect smile and manner so she is well on her way.

Zoe loves her sports

Zoe came in for her senior photos the other day. Mom ‘thought’ a studio session was in order but once I took a look at Zoe’s wardrobe and found out more about her outside seemed the place to go.  We did capture a few images in studio which are nice but the ones of her with her basketball seemed to come alive.  There’s a rarely used hoop just outside my door and I decided to have her shoot a few.  Then we headed down to the park and water for some softer compositions.
