The look of Pendleton

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.

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:

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.

Ol’ blue eyes

Brannden has the most intense blue eyes so shooting in the late evening on Alki certainly enhanced them. While he goes to school in Kirkland he also spends time over in West Seattle. He loves the water and participates in sports like basketball and tennis.

Claudia’s Senior session

Claudia was a delightful subject. Having gone to modeling school she was a dream in front of the camera. We headed over to the Arboretum at South Seattle Community College. We had plenty of backgrounds to choose from and she had plenty of outfits to change into!

Gabby’s Free Spirit

Gabby is a senior at West Seattle Lutheran.  On this beautiful sunny Seattle day we headed toward the water where she proved to be an easy subject before the lens. Before we knew it we were close to 200 shots!  Hard to resist a pretty girl on a pretty day!  Click on her video here: Gabby’s Free Spirit.

Jason & Morgan

I’ve photographed Jason many times as he’s grown up. Now it’s time for some senior pics! He brought along his best friend Morgan so we did some of both the guys plus the new puppy in the family!

Madeline at Alki

It’s never too late for senior portraits! Madeline’s mom found me through her hairdresser, Taylor, whose wedding I did about 7(?) years ago!  Thank you Taylor! 

Madeline and I met on Alki and did some creative work on the pier close to Salty’s and then moved down to the ‘anchor’ where the sun came out and we did some fun stuff close to the water.

Seniors and pickup trucks

I first photographed Andrew in a family portrait a couple years ago. Next up was his brother Joe’s senior pics and now it’s time for Andrew!  And what could be better than photographing him with his grandfather’s red 1995 Ford pickup!
