OLOT – Lakeside 2012

Yesterday I was able to photograph a group of Lakeside students as they were about to leave for the annual OLOT dance at Fremont Abbey. 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.

Here are a couple more images.

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.

Carita’s Salmon Bay 2nd Grade Class Photo

We will see who will be the lucky ones who get to take it home.

Salmon Bay School Play Portrait

Salmon Bay Elementary School in Ballard again this year asked me to make a panorama group portrait of the cast of their annual Shakespeare play. Last year was my first such assignment. It is was again a challenge of working with the kids and then such a pleasure when the prints were delivered. I donated one to the school and the students got to get a 12 x 36″ print at cost. I delivered all 35 prints that were ordered. You need to see these prints in person to really see all the details. They are hanging my donated prints framed at the teachers office at the school if you want to stop by.
