I love being a continuing part of the lives of my clients as their families grow. We went to the Washington Park Arboretum for their family portraits with their three-year-old son just three days before they added a daughter to the family. So cool.Read More
I first met this family about 17 years ago. I have shot parties, anniversaries, and family portraits for them. Check out their family now!Read More
I met Stephanie and Kalani close to a decade ago. I took their engagement portraits and wedding photographs. I have seen them at their friends' weddings and photographed things for Stephanie's work. A couple years ago, they made their couple a trio. Check out them and their adorable sidekick!
I met the W family for some family portraits just north of Seattle at Heritage Park in Lynnwood.
Pets can be a huge part of our lives. Here is one beautiful old family member hanging out.
I love to photograph the portraits of the kids my former wedding couples. Here is one adorable little girl's portrait!
Kids are funny. They are miniature adults in a lot of ways. They don't like to be told what to do anymore than adults do. Just like adults, they may do as they are told because they feel like they have to, or they will punished in some way if they don't (anyone have a job to know what I mean?). That doesn't make them happy about it. However, kids are much easier to manipulate than adults. You might want to say "convince to do what you want" if you don't like the idea of manipulating children. It all comes from the level of excitement and the possibility something may be fun. For this image, I convinced this young man into thinking that pointing at the birds and trees outside would be fun thing to do. I love the photograph of him doing something totally normal for kids that adults don't do - being excited to look out the window into his own yard. :)
This photograph was taken with natural light in his Kirkland home with a Canon 5D Mark III and Sigma 50mm f1.4 lens set to f1.8.
I love this b&w of Daniel.
I went over the Katie & Chris' place last week to take photos of them with there happy little man, Maxton!
Everyone love their children and think theirs are the best. I'm not different! Here are some photographs of my amazing children that we took in November for our holiday cards. Now that everyone has seen the cards, I can put out the images!
All these are really just the tip of the iceberg. I could easily have put in another 20 images!
I would never try to make a baby cry. However, I think they are so cute when they do! This small member of the Large family had happier moments, but I thought this was so cute! The rest of the session will be coming in a few days!
I met the Galvagno family at Heritage Park in Kirkland. I had a great time shooting them around the park and at the waterfront. What a great family!
I met the bickhaus family in Everett to do an urban-themed portrait session. Gotta love that!
This little guy is adorable and I could have posted 100 images!
Evidently, he loves to brush his teeth!
These folks are people we know. Therefore, I took my incredible 12-year-old daughter along with me for the first time at a live shoot. I gave her a camera, set it and let her go. One of her images made the cut and is one of the 14 below. Make a comment, correctly guess her photo below. If you are the first one to guess correctly, I'll send you a 11x14 of Seattle at night that I posted a couple days ago! One guess per person, please!#1
I've had the great pleasure to photograph this family for many years. It is always cool to see how much bigger the boys get every year!
My wife and I are having trouble deciding what we want on our wall to show off our cool, new gallery wrap print option. Gallery wraps are giclee printed onto canvas and stretched around a wooden frame with the image actually wrapping around the frame. Then it is hung without any other frame. Very cool. Anyway, back to the point. We have these photographs of our kids. We are planning on having one printed as a 24x36 and hung here at the house, which also doubles as the studio showroom. Since we can't make a decision, we thought we would ask our faithful readers to vote for their favorite. I also found this little voting poll gadget to make it easy!
#1 - The horizontal
#2 The goofy vertical
#3 - the Feet
#4 - Skip the 24x36 group photo and get three 20x30 individual portraits.
