Luz Davies asked me to photograph her family this year at Christmas and we had a great time. Here are some of the pictures we made.
Matt needed his senior pictures and wanted to do them in a setting with lots of trees so we headed over to the Washington Park Arboretum. It is a wonderful 200-acre park on the shore of Lake Washington, in the Madison Park neighborhood of Seattle, with over 40,000 trees, shrubs and vines from all around the world. the weather was fine and we were all happy with the selection of pictures we made.
Heidi and her daughter Ariel went to the park and encountered encountered this curious dog.
Ema and Claire’s cousins visited Seattle this summer for five weeks and on the last day I made these photos of them leaving for their trip back to Bratislava, Slovakia. We all had a great time during their visit and it was hard to see them leave.

New born baby Claire gets used to being out in the air 10 minutes after being born at Swedish Hospital 11 years ago today. Happy Birthday Claire. Nice hat they gave you there. I almost forgot that detail.
As the waves of the tide come in Claire out runs the water on the beach of Seaside, OR. Seaside is a city in Clatsop County, Oregon, United States. The name Seaside is derived from Seaside House, a historic summer resort built in the 1870s by railroad magnate Ben Holladay.
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.
Here is Claire’s pack of trick or treaters heading out for their mission on Halloween night.
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.
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.
Walking the dogs to school with Claire this morning I was remembering back ten years ago today to morning she was born not too far from here at Swedish Hospital about 8:30 AM. Happy Birthday Claire.

They assembled at the home of Roger and Nancy Lewis, parents of Lewis and the above picture was taken on the steps of their lovely home. Click here for a link to a web gallery of the entire set of images I collected.
Here are a couple more images.
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.
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.

Gasworks Park was where I met up with the Greg Campbell family for a portrait secession. It is a great location and has a great variety of different backdrops to choose from including this industrial look to the skyline over LAke Union to the huge green hill.
