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.

Family Portrait of the Campbell Family

 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.

Children’s Theatre | Taproot Theatre Summer Camp Production

The Taproot Theatre acting studio put on a production of “Law & Order, Fairy Tale Unit” yesterday, the culmination of a week long summer camp for children interesting in acting. Claire was interested and took part mainly as the character Pinochio, who could not tell a lie without it hurting her nose. Below the cast takes a bow at the end of the performance. Thanks to Sara Willy, Education Director at Taproot Theatre Company For more pictures see Children’s Theatre Pictures gallery.



Patricia Turns 90

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.

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.

Panoramic Family Portrait Photography

This is the panoramic version of the large group family photograph I made on Christmas Ev. They are the VonDerlinn family reunited for the holidays at the family home on Cougar Mountain. It has a lot more air on both sides, but has lost some of the clouds in the sky. The sun was partly hidden behind some clouds in this version and I believe I shot the digital version from a higher vantage because more of the mountains are visible in the background. This one will look good when printed 12 x 36″ long.

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.
