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.
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.

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.
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.
Saturday was a beautiful day and I went around to photograph Tegan and her family. I had first met her a couple of days ago when Margo, her mom, and I were at a dinner aparty with an old friend who was back in Seattle for a short visit. We had a grand reunion and so it came to pass that I was asked to come and do some pictures of Tegan who is now 9 months old. What a sweetheart. Tegan in Welsh means pretty and so she is. Here are some of my favorite shots from the portrait session. Here is a link to the web gallery of all of the family pictures.
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.
I have been meaning to post this photograph of Ana and her twin sons for some time. On ocassion I still shot portraits on black and white film and really love how it looks. If you ever decide you would like me to photograph your family consider asking me to photograph the timeless way with black and white film. I still have a freezer of Tri-X and all of my old Leicas and Hasselblad cameras in good working order.
Photographed another family recently and loved seeing the interaction of this 4 1/2 year old brother and his 2 year old sister. While the weather was cold outside it was warm inside photographing these great kids.
I had a family photo session today and I just wanted to put up one image from it before I even finish editing the whole take. I really like this shot of a sister and her younger brother. She is quite the big sister this girl.

My Aunt Nora passed away at the age of 94 earlier this month in New York. We always spent time with her on our trips back east and this picture was made on our last visit to see her on Thanksgiving in 2008. She was truly a great aunt to us all and we will miss visiting her and her telephone calls, birthday and holiday cards which she never forgot to send.

I had the pleasure of photographing Ana and her sons recently. The weather has been so pleasant this el nino winter that we could shoot outside just before sunset in front of their house. Bunnies seem to be harder to photograph than dogs which I have more experience shooting. Photographs on this website by Seattle photographer Daniel Sheehan © 2010. All Rights Reserved.

This is the panoramic version of the large group family photograph I made on Christmas Ev. They are the VonDerlinn family reunited for the holidays at the family home on Cougar Mountain. It has a lot more air on both sides, but has lost some of the clouds in the sky. The sun was partly hidden behind some clouds in this version and I believe I shot the digital version from a higher vantage because more of the mountains are visible in the background. This one will look good when printed 12 x 36″ long.

On Christmas Eve I had an assignment to make a large group family portrait of the VonDerlinn family on Cougar Mountain. They are a big family and most of them have moved out of the old family homestead but return for holidays like Christmas from places like Texas and California. The old house site near the top of the mountain and has a great view out over Puget Sound and the Olympics beyond so I posed them on the patio with the view and sky behind them.

Newborn bella baby Harper at six days of age. She is so amazing to see.

Two days later a very bella baby daughter, Harper McAllister Sather was born. Talk about good timing. Here are our first but not our last newborn baby photographs of her.

Just a note about this picture. I usually do not go into technical talk but I have been working with an old Hassleblad and black and white film and I really like the look of film. It has been a while since I worked with a film camera every day and I am getting the hang of it again. Last time I worked with the Hasselblad was more than 15 years ago. I gave them up and moved on to a Mamiya RZ 67 when I became tired of the square format. Lately I have been missing it so I got myself a new old camera, the lens was made in 1975 and the body in 1980. The lens is a beautiful 110 f/2 Planar. and it looks tack sharp even after all these years. I will be using it for as many kinds of assignments as I see fit from now on. It is back to the future with film.

Andrew and Renae Cooper were married in July 2005. I remember because I photographed their wedding and it was a wonderful celebration. It does not seem it could be that long ago, but I met them recently and made some children portraits, some candid children photos and a family portrait and seeing how the children are growing so fast I guess it was more than 5 years ago.
