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 love it when high school seniors know what they want. Ci had some definite ideas on location and clothing as we headed to Discovery Park. With interesting trees to climb, fall colors, and beautiful fields we hit the jackpot! Take a look….
Marco is kinda shy but I think we got some great images as we wandered through Lincoln Park on down to the waters edge. Marco’s a pretty smart guy who enjoys mathematics and engineering. He has joined the track team and field team where he participates in the shot put and discus throw.
I met up with Kelly at the Arboretum at the Community College in West Seattle. What a wonderful place…it was the first time she had ever been there and just loved it… especially the Japanese Garden area…take a look!
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 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.
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.
“but we only need one!” Jared exclaimed as we kept strolling thru the park. Kinda quiet and reserved we got some really nice images for his senior pics….
Rain forced us to wait until later in the day to shoot Lily’s senior session. I love shooting at the gardens at the community college. Every time I walk through I find a new location or angle from which to capure images. Lily was a dream to work with. Her tanned skin was captured beautifully in the soft overcast light. Lily goes to Kennedy High in Burien and graduates in early June.
I met up with Eric for a walk through the gardens at South Seattle Community College this past weekend. Overcast and clouds provided smooth lighting for our session. I always love it when the guys pick out their favorite outfits. He was just tough enough to pull off the “James Dean” look of white T-shirt and jeans. We added red shoes for flair later on and then turned to a more classic look of V-neck sweater with a jacket. All in all I think we captured his senior persona just fine.
