Thanks to Teresa Moore of Moore Ink., for bringing me in to get some fresh images for the Highline Medical Center Foundation annual report. While Highline Medical Center is now CHI Franciscan Health, the Foundation still goes under the original name.

They needed me to work quickly, as the hospital staff were being kept from their regular duties to help us out.  I ran around with staff from the Foundation that assembled the volunteers to be photographed in different situations. They needed to have images to show off new technologies and special services they were able to obtain through donations to the Foundation. They also wanted to highlight some of their people, giving recognition to the hard working staff.

These were all made using natural light, the actual people that do these jobs, and the “models” are people who generously volunteer at the hospital all year long, not just for photo shoots! What an incredible bunch of people that I was fortunate enough to spend some time with.

Senior session-Olympic Sculpture Park

 

It’s that time of year, so I thought I’d post Eva’s high school senior photo session at the Seattle Art Museums’ Olympic Sculpture Park. If you haven’t been, it’s a wonderful place to see some modern sculpture and take in a view of Puget Sound. It was a fairly chilly day in March when we did these, but Eva and her moms were great sports. Thanks for a great session Eva, Jennifer and Laureen!

While people do their senior photos throughout the year, you might keep August in mind for a warmer time to do your photos. You’ll have them ready for the yearbook, and it’s the summer, so you’ll be less stressed and busy!

 

Business photos in Seattle

While you most often see family portraits on this blog, I do lots of different types of photography. This image was produced for a magazine, what we call editorial photography, however I also am commissioned by individuals to do photographs like this for their own websites and/or other promotional materials.

Newborns at home

The opportunity to come to your home and document your joy at having a new baby is one of the most special things I do. And, I love it!

Every family is different and I adjust to what you want out of your session. It’s not about me, it’s about you!! For example, not all women want breastfeeding photographs, but many do. They note the way I capture the way the baby looks at them, and are so happy they will get to remember that look and memory when they are no longer breastfeeding.

I had the best time with Lois, a local children’s book author, teacher and writer. Can’t wait for her book, Maddi’s Refrigerator, to be released!

After going back and forth on whether the studio or on-location would be best, we decided on her backyard for our photo session. The shade of the trees provided nice lighting. She felt much more relaxed in her own garden (environment) than she would have in my studio (not that my studio’s not relaxing!:)) I encourage you to consider having your portrait taken in an environment you love.
