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.
I love photographing high school seniors. Maddie, her mom and I caught up with each other at the gardens on campus in West Seattle and found the perfect backdrops for her photos. Mom thought it was great working outdoors especially since Maddie is more of an outdoorsey kinda gal and into sports like volleyball. Here are some of my favorites. Don’t forget – it’s never too late or too early for senior pics!
The Merlino family decided to have a family portrait taken at the same time as we did Clara’s senior photos. While the morning was gray and rainy the afternoon turned out beautiful as we headed over to the arboretum at SSCC. An easy-going group, we worked quickly to catch as much late afternoon sun as possible. Here’s a peek at Clara’s senior photos.
For some reason guys tend to not want to have senior photos taken. So Rian’s mom was getting the family together for a long overdue family photo and we snuck in those senior photos of Rian. Rian goes by the nickname “94”; you’ll have to ask him how that all came about! Everyone gathered at the arboretum where we had a fun time walking the grounds.

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!

We tried to get together on Sunday but due to mechanical breakdown had to postpone until today. The weather still held even though it was cloudy and we captured some really nice images of Audrey atop Queen Anne hill. Having grown up in the neighborhood it only made sense to stroll down the avenue….

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.
It’s always fun to watch my clients grow up…I met Blake just a couple years ago when we did a surprise group photo of all the brothers and sisters for their dad for Father’s Day. Mom loved ’em too and wouldn’t let Blake go anywhere else when it was time for graduation photos. Guys usually don’t care one way or the other if they have photos taken or not so I try to make it quick and painless with a little fun thrown in…here’s what we got!

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!
