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.
