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.

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.


Family Portrait of Tegan At 9 Months


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.

Claire Turns 9 Party with Friends

CLaire turns 9 Tuesday and so last weekend she invited 4 friends over for a movie, dinner and slumber party. Right after arriving on the school bus the girls enjoyed a snack of crepes with peanut butter and jam. The they headed out for a movie and dinner at Rubies Dinner in Redmond.

Next morning they were still all smiles after watching another movie on DVD in a messy fun room.

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.

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.

Portrait of a Three Year Old Claire

Sometimes it can be really nice to take a child out of their environment and photograph them against a white seamless background. Claire was 3 years old when I did this with her. Here hair was just beginning to grow out. At this point it is the longest it had been. She had almost no hair when she was born and it was great to finally see it coming in. Her personality is so apparent even here in this picture.

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.

Valentines Day Slumber Party

Claire invited three of her friends from her 2nd grade class at Salmon Bay  over for a Valentines Day slumber party. This is the morning after photo with (l to r) Claire,  Britting, Atlantis and Soleil hangin out on the couch together. There was a lot of fun and games and movie watching until midnight and then they were up before 7AM. So much energy. Jana made them all crepes for breakfast.
