This weekend my family came up so that I could take my step-brother’s senior photos. It’s not every session where I get to go help shop for the clothes that they’ll be wearing while I photograph them, so this weekend was a little extra fun. Here’s some of my favorites from the afternoon out at Jenning’s Park. BONUS: I even got him to pose for me the next day while we were out at the tulip fields in Mt. Vernon, and surprised his mom! Woot!
Earlier this week we had a quick glimpse of what spring is always like in the movies. It was rain-free, only mildly chilly, and lots of flowers filled the trees as I drove through town. Of course spring is rarely that wonderful here in the greater Seattle area. Heck – it’s generally miserable throughout most of the Pacific Northwest. But, we had a couple days… so naturally, the photographer in me pounced on the opportunity, and I got everything set up to meet up with Josh for his senior photos. We started off at Jennings Park in Marysville, and then headed into downtown Everett where we were graced with an amazing sunset! Overall, it was a great evening. I wish all guys were as fun to work with!
This afternoon, Mike and I headed down to Seattle from Marysville for an engagement photography session. It was rainy and nasty outside, but that was no big deal because we knew we’d be inside. We were heading to the Volunteer Park Conservatory up on Capitol Hill to meet our bride and groom to be. It was super humid inside, and crowded (guess a rainy Sunday in Seattle is a good day to go look at tropical flowers!). But we still had a great time with Julia and Tracy. They were even good enough sports to let me drag them out in the rain for a few fun umbrella photos at the end of out session.
My baby is two. I suppose that means she’s not technically my baby anymore. But since I’m pretty sure I’ll be calling her my baby girl until she’s old and grey – it is what it is.
A totally sweet series of pictures that I’m totally jealous aren’t of me!
In 2012, I had the priviledge of photographing this beautiful couple while they were still the the throes of just-engaged bliss. We decided to go out to the lighthouse in Mukilteo because it was a nice scenic area with lots of variety. The bride-to-be looked stunning in her white sundress, while the future groom looked cool and casual. The white brick walls on the adjacent building provided a perfect backdrop for some fun, more urban moments.
This week I managed to find a break in the rain, and worked in a really sweet senior session as the sunlight was getting warm toward the end of the day. Deshaughna, a 2014 Lake Steven’s High School senior, was super fun to work with. That always helps make magic happen. Check out the photos from her session! We even snuck in a picture with her mom.
