Grace at Seventeen

May 08, 2021  •  1 Comment
This Spring, I had the immense pleasure of photographing the daughter of a long-ago friend of mine. My friend is Kim, and this is Grace. Kim highly values photographs, as I do. I remember that 20+ years ago, she had an eye:) And Grace has taken two years of Photography electives in high school, so we were 3 of a kind. We had our Planning Session...

April 30, 2021  •  Leave a Comment
Oh that COVID hair was SO FUN!!! Beach bum looks on every man! Greg was agreeable to photographing his lengthy locks before cleaning him up! Why not In the ski boat? We agreed it was unbearable to chop the front flop so Val at Gene Juarez Men at the Bravern took off the hair in the back, shaping & texturing to Greg's likes: Gr...

Zip zip! That was Elly!

Maybe she had fun... oh I dunno, maybe not! But... SHE DID IT:) She did it for her Mum:) She did it for her...

Phoebe! Sun, Lake & Bamboo !

March 19, 2021  •  Leave a Comment
Phoebe is my kind of girl:) That is to say, we love the same types of photographs:) She lives in a semi-minimalist, tall & slender house (how picturesque!) on the lake. Her home doesn't have a lot of "stuff" and each chosen furnishing or piece of decór is ~ unique ~ fun ~ different ~ interesting! I think, it is, quite an interesting allegory for P...

November 17, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
I mean it about having fun:) Might as well! I mean, you'll get used to acting like your smile is quite real, but getting those honestly-I-can't-help-it-smiles are a lot easier when you're doing something you enjoy! Like for Zach when he dribbles around me, or makes lay-ups while I'm shooting down from above the neighborhood hoop:) I like those smil...

Cameron - Bellevue Christian Senior Photos

November 10, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Happy Senior Sunday!! The idea was simply to get one good yearbook portrait for Cameron:) In the past, Bellevue Christian High School has always hired a pro studio to take all the senior portraits, and they are always very good portraits. But the excitement that shines when portraits are based on a person's own unique ideas, I suspect that would be...

For the Love of Pet Portraits

Our kids are avid dog-sitters and dog-walkers. Earlier this month, we were able to keep "Millie" for a bit, while her humans vacationed in Europe. We considered our home to be Millie's summer vacation home:) When Ronnie brought Millie to us, he carried all of her puppy paraphernalia into our home, with 12 pink roses for me:) Millie turned out to be...
