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!

Vanessa moves with grace

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:

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:

Erin’s Senior pics

It’s time for senior photos and I was asked to photograph Erin…a sweet redhead who goes to Vashon High School. Somehow she managed to walk through Lincoln Park and down to the water in her red high heels – I guess it is all about the shoes! And she didn’t trip once! Some of my favorite shots were taken on a big rock at the water – I fashioned it after the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen.

Katie’s Senior Session

Seems like just yesterday that I photographed Katie’s brother but it was four years ago! Now it’s Katie’s turn. Katie and her friend came over on the Vashon Ferry and then we ventured to Lincoln Park in the late afternoon and created some very nice images. Here are my favorites….

Thru the raindrops

It’s that time of year for last minute senior yearbook photos. Yup, I can still make it happen for you. Neve came by this afternoon after shuffling her schedule and mine only to find the rains coming – what to do?! Quick, we can do it…and we did, right in my yard! It was the fastest session yet and yielded some great images perfect for the yearbook. We’ll get together again in April or May for more clothing changes and background options; hopefully with some better weather.

Hannalie’s Senior Session

A friend suggested Hannalie call me for her senior portraits since she no longer lives in the area. It was fun to finally put a name to a face and family I had heard about regularly. We had a wonderfully warm but slightly overcast afternoon for our romp thru the park. Hannalie attends Emerald Ridge High in Puyallup. Here are some of my favorites…

Jordan’s Senior Session

Jordan was pretty laid back as we wandered thru the park for his senior session. We swung by the baseball field and got some nice shots there before hitting the trail and seeking out unusual spots. To top off the shoot mom spotted an eagle guarding her nest. It was a great day for a shoot!

Maddie’s Senior Pics

I photographed her sister Audrey a couple years ago and now it’s Maddie’s turn.  We braved the chill and found sunny skies on Alki. Once w got started Maddie knew just what she wanted to do. I loved her spontaneous laughter and smiles that only mom could get out of her!
