Since it has been a while since I last photographed the Leigland family and it was time for Olie’s senior pics we decided to photograph everybody – including the family dog. We traversed Lincoln Park and captured all sorts of groupings. Olie graduates from O’Dea High School and will attend Montana State University.
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!
As I always say, it’s never too late for senior pics! Kayat graduates in June, THIS June! So we headed to Lincoln Park for some photos. This tall, casually dressed young man has the most disarming smile! He was easy to work with and took everything in stride as we wandered the park.
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.
I’ve photographed Wyatt and his brother over the years and now it’s time for senior pics. How time flies! A handsome young man, we headed over to the park and did a walk from top to bottom. He’s into golf and tennis making the images more meaningful. Here’s a peek….
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:
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.
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….
