The Davies Family Portraits




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.














Seattle Senior Portrait Photographer

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.



Trick Or Treat Girls out on Halloween

Here is Claire’s pack of trick or treaters heading out for their mission on Halloween night.

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.

Motorcycle Girl Portrait of Claire on a Ducati

Just got this picture from my good friend Bruce Dugdale at Glaziers Camera. He took this of Claire when they had a photo festival and fair. I brought CLaire and she was excited at first but was a little disappointed when she learned there were no rides. The Ducati made her happy though and she donned an appropriate expression.

Sisters With Braces

Recently Claire joined her sister in the exclusive girls with braces club. So is so happy to have been admitted.

Seattle Children’s Photographer | Portrait of Walter at Ten Months

It has been seven months since I last photographed Walter and he has done some real growing. His personality is rapidly developing as well. He is now an engaging portrait subject now. Look at those eyes.

Great Aunt Nora

My Aunt Nora with my daughters Clare and Ema

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.

Seaside Sisters

I took the girls down to Seaside OR for a few days after Thanksgiving. We had a blast. I think the most fun was chasing the tide as it came and went on the beach there. The pool in the hotel was very close I think. I will check back with them in a couple of days to see what remains the best highlight. The beach was for me. It was so great to be out in the sunshine.

Late November at the beach. What a wonder the Pacific is with its great waves and foam.

Family Photograph at the Beach


Catherine and Christian wanted a family portrait with their son Yann for her dad so we headed off to Golden Gardens recently and got some beautiful light just before sunset. I shot this one of Yann first and then did some family photographs afterwards. The one below is the one her dad liked best.

Portrait of a Cowgirl

Portrait of a Mom

Last November I photographed Janee Kreinheder a mom and a graphic designer,  of Swing Creative, yesterday for her website and edited the shoot down to these four portraits as my favorites from the session.




Later she had me photograph her whole family. I will post that one next.
