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:
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:
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 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!
Seniors are lots of fun and Jessica was no exception. She’s lived in West Seattle and always wanted photos taken on Alki so this was the perfect way to capture her senior photos. When given the chance I like to add my artistic slant and create one of a kind pieces of portrait art….here’s my versions for Jessica:
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!
Kayla has a style all her own. We strolled through Lincoln Park top to bottom and then headed over to Alki. The soft overcast skies were perfect to work in creating wonderful lighting.
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.
Nick is an interesting character. He goes to West Seattle High where he participates in wrestling. He didn’t bring his fightin’ gear; instead he was dressed very casually. We stuck close to the studio and did some portraits inside and then headed outdoors. The cool grey and black walls made for interesting photos. This cool cat will work toward a nursing degree.
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.
