It was a fine day for meeting up with Dianna and her son Joel who is now a senior. I’ve photographed all her boys since they were born so capturing his essence was easy.
I can’t remember the last time I photographed Henry but I knew it was him the minute we met. He’s got the same contagious smile as his mom! To get a serious ‘look’ was not easy but, that’s okay with me and mom.
It’s that time of year when parents and high school grads trek across the country in search of the perfect college. Jack found his at Loyola University Chicago. But before he goes, mom wanted some high school graduation photos to mark the occasion. A graduate of O’Dea High School and active in sports I’m sure his future is bright. Congratulations!
I did a business headshot of mom awhile back and was pleasantly surprised to have her call and set up our time with Sofia. The family spent a lot of time exploring Fauntleroy Park as the kids grew up so this was the perfect place for us to shoot on this softly overcast day. I just love her easy smile. Sofia will graduate from Vashon High School and plans to further her education studying political science.
I was reminded that I last photographed Keegan when he was 6 months old during a family session – look at him now! A little quiet yet he was comfortable in front of the camera as we wandered through Lincoln Park on this wonderful overcast day. He will be graduating from West Seattle Lutheran High and intends to pursue the trades where I’m sure he will find much success.
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:
