Got a monkey on my back and I don’t care


After all it is Halloween! I took a little drive to see what was happening in the West Seattle neighborhoods. Found lots of pets and kids (with parents) trick or treating up and down the street. The spooky decor was a little bit wicked. Ghosts hid in the shadows, spiders spun their webs, and skeletons celebrated the Halloween spirit!



It’s Halloween! And neighborhoods become spooky. Just around the corner from my house I found this ‘enchanting’ scene…

Halloween in the Junction

The Senior Center of West Seattle asked if I would take photos of the trick or treaters during the Junction’s Halloween celebration. How could I refuse! There were lots of witches, lots of puppies, and lots of monkeyss! The most unusual included a robot, a cupcake and a blue angel…all of which won prizes for best costumes. Congratulations!  If you haven’t received your photo yet be sure and email me so I can get it to you!

Evil Dead

Evil Dead – the Musical

Theater guests enjoyed tuna fingers, pizza, and vampire bites before getting splattered with blood at this ArtsWest patron dinner.  Guests were photographed and placed in their own poster art as a souvenier!  See all photos here

The cult classic horror films Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness  were brought to life before our very eyes in this crazy musical. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell jokes… and all is set to music.  For more info visit: ArtsWest

Halloween Traditions at Alki Elementary

There’s nothing like creating your own holiday traditions…even for Halloween!  I met Cassie and her mom several years ago and have had the privilege of photographing her in her Halloween costume as well as creating her annual Christmas photo!

The Mummy Wrap

It was a dark and windy night as I walked up the driveway to the Weeks mansion and met all the witches and goblins in the neighborhood. Treats included pizza and brownies followed by the mummy wrap!  Enjoy this little video. You can see the rest of the pics at:
