Nothing like sliding down a mountain in a huge inner tube on a winters day. Claire and I went up to Snoqualmie Pass over the weekend and the thing she enjoyed the most was the thrill of tubing. Lots of fun.


Flower Girls at a Mountain Top Wedding

This past summer I was at quite a few weddings and wanted to share some of the pictures I made of the children in attendance.
This wedding was on top of Crystal Mountain accessed via a big red gondola. It was a fun time for all.



Here is a wedding group photo of about100 people. It is the large group wedding panorama portrait of everyone in attendance I make at every wedding  including the flower girls.

Here is a link to the post that previewed this Crystal Mountain wedding photography  right after the wedding, and here is a link to the post with a complete set of the wedding pictures.

Newborn Baby Frieda

I finally got to meet Frieda when she was almost one week old. What a beautiful baby girl with such very long fingers. She will probably grow up and be a concert pianist.
Here are a few of my favorite images of her and her parents.

Kids at Weddings

I recently was photographing a wedding in Phoenix AZ and was delighted to get the chance to photograph some younger members of the wedding. I especially love the difference between the boys and girls. the boys had to be bribed with the offer of some Pez for walking down the aisle. the flower girl was delighted to enjoy her time in the spotlight passing out roses as she ambled down the runway, I mean aisle.


Bella Belly Baby Harper Turns Two


couple of times I

Two years ago I photographed the baby belly of Molly when she was 9 months pregnant on a Sunday afternoon. Then on tuesday the bella baby Harper came popped out of the belly and into the world. Although I have photographed her a couple of times I wanted to post an update now that she just turned 2. Harper loves playing “Where’s the baby” with me. What a sweet child.

Patricia Turns 90


Patricia was surprised to see me upon first entering Suzzane’s house for her 90th birthday party. I had gone up to Victoria just for her party. One does not turn ninety very often and I had to be there to see her face. I have uploaded all of the photographs to a web gallery here: birthday party photos   Below are a sample of a few of my favorites.

Photographs from the King County Regional Special Olympics Track & Field Tournament

More than 300 Special Olympians and their coaches and families turned out on Saturday for the King County Regional Special Olympics Track & Field Tournament and had a great time.  It was the first time anyone could remember that it did not rain on the Shoreline Stadium grounds on the day of the tournament. Here are a few of my favorite images of the kids at the event.
















My daughter Ema came along with me to help me photograph the Special Olympics on Saturday. Here she was standing in for me to test the balance between the backlit sun and my flash fill.

Teenagers On The Beach


Ema and her friends hang out at the beach at Carkeek Park as they celebrate her 13th birthday. It was a fun afternoon and evening with hot dogs, chilli, and marshmallows and stuff around a bon fire.


The weather which was threatening on Thursday and Friday morning, cleared up and it turned out to be beautiful evening. I got them all together for a group picture down on the beach with the Sound and Olympics behind them in the distance sometime after sunset.

In all it was a fun party but I can not help but wonder what she is going to next year when she turns 14.

Newborn Baby Sam @ One Month On

I photographed Tom and Lisa when they got married a couple of years ago and Francis when she was little so now it was baby Sam’s turn for a baby picture.
Sam was napping when I arrived. I let sleeping baby sleep. Nothing cuter than a sleeping baby.

Except for a yawning baby.

Sam was not happy when he woke up and saw me with my camera in his face. I can not blame him.


Lisa gave him a topping off which put him in a better mood.

Then Francis came over to get in on the fun. I will post a separate entry for a few of her pictures later in the week.

By The Sea – Girls On The Beach

Down on the Oregon Coast in the town of Seaside is where my girls like to go for a break away from it all. At low tide the beach is huge and they love the sand and waves.

I love going with just a Leica and some black and white film and shooting like it was years ago. Nothing like else like it.
