Vashon Senior Portraits: I love plants

Friday, November 13th, 2015

I have been wow-ed by young woman! During our pre-consultation I asked her what her favorite things are and I was hooked..

“Plants.”

Do you do sports? What are your activities?

“Debate club. The paper–Riptide.”

Do you like Shinglemill?

“Love it.”

Perfect–I know exactly what to do. Dress how you feel good about yourself–how you see yourself. Feel free to bring a change of clothes. I’ll come to your home and we’ll go from there.

She bubbled right up through the lens. “I’m not really awkward.”

No.  She isn’t.

I hear/read/see to often “I don’t know…  kids today are (any derogatory word),”out of the mouths and minds of many.  Not where I’m looking.  The kids today?  They’re more than fine.

Editorial Photography: Vashon Sheepdog Trials

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

The Vashon Sheepdog Trials touch a soft spot in me. The human-dog interaction mixed in with the consuming desire for the sheepdog to herd is something to behold.

Love. It’s deep love all the way around.

Vashon Photography: Summer

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

This family is real–genuine, loving and fun.  I could gush over them on and on, drooling over Anya’s Spicy Green Mango Line (fashion with a heart and soul), the creative juices flowing through the well-read daughter to create her own book, and the adventurous souls of the both boys, but I’ll let their images speak for them.  They shine through.

Did I mention a really naughty kitty?

As I scrolled through looking at the images from this family session, a wave of gratitude rolled over me. I met this family when Max was just born. I have returned to capture a little moment in their lives every year since. I love how the photos show the changes, year after year. What do they do? What did kids play with? How did they interact? How did they love? They aren’t pretty portraits–they are real moments. They are perfect to me.

It all goes so fast…

Earlier this year in the spring, Cheryl from Vashon Dance Academy asked me to help her with their poster for this year’s production of Mary Poppins Ballet. Dancers and their shapes…

Vashon Allied Arts needed a photo of the trio for their upcoming marketing campaign. Times like this (all of these) I really appreciate the people my work brings into my life.

Vashon Family Photography: Spring Adorableness

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Vashon’s spring is green with longer days beneath deep blue skies or the layers of clouds mold to shape around mountains and hills, or the open spaces in between. The earth starts to wake up with unfurling ferns, prickly nettles, and budding blossoms along with the birds after their slow winter with sounds of territorial fighting and hunting. Witnessing the change on my walks or while working on our property to bring it closer to its native roots (good bye concrete and grass! Hello native plants!). And then I was so glad to meet and photograph these little lamb, and their keepers for a month.

I learned that orphaned lamb need to eat, a lot. Watching them suck down their bottles and come in for cuddles was precious. Even more so, the family dog, not a sheep dog, took these little lamb in as her own, to love and cherish. Priceless.
