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.

Cousins visit Seattle

Seattle family photographer Daniel Sheehan photographed his family leaving for SLovakia after a 5 week visit this summer.

 

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.

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.

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.

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.

EMA – Turning Fourteen Party at Carkeek Park With 80 of Her Friends from Salmon Bay School

So it came to pass that Ema was turning 14 and she decided to celebrate it with a party for 80 of her friends at Carkeek Park last Friday. They were all over the park most of the time and I was lucky to get this group of 40+ of them together for this large group picture. I hardly had time for making pictures as I was busy cooking hot dogs and serving hot chocolate to one and all who came over to the grill. It was good to see them all having fun running up the mountain, around the meadow and over the train tracks to the beach. Some even went into the frigid waters of the Puget Sound.

When I first tried to get together a group photo the light was great but it took quite a while getting everyone in the meadow to come together  around Ema who is sitting in this shot below. By the time they got it together the sun was down in the clouds and never returned. so the light up on the large group is a little flat. So it goes.

 

In any case the view of the sunset over the sound and Olympic mountains was wonderful and I had to make some frames of it before I went back to grill duty.

Oh. Just one more thing. I did get Ema to pause for a second for a quick headshot.

Just saying.

Seattle Children Portraits | Cruising With the Girls


It has been a while since I made a portrait of Ema and she looks quite different from the last time. We were out on a boat in Lake Union and I made some like the one above, of Ema with her sister Claire and friend Yasmina visiting from Europe. Then Ema went down below to the cabin and I shot this one of her in the shade.

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.
