Chilly December Day

When I woke up this morning and saw the temperature reading a balmy 28 degrees out, I could not help but think of a warmer summer afternoon. Crossing the Puget Sound, one is bound to cross a diverse population of sea going vessels. On this late fall afternoon, I caught a wonderful view of a sailboat making its way back to the docks on in Seattle's Elliot Bay. With the sun almost below the Olympics Mt. Rainer is shown in her full glory!

Engagement Photos in Seattle

If you have a friend who is a photographer, it is always great when they are able to do your pictures. Also, if you are the photographer, it can be stressful to shoot friends, however with this couple it was so easy and FUN!!!! We were able to find a special place I had never shot before and provided them, not being from the Seattle area, a unique setting. It is always wonderful when the couple's personality is able to be brought out in their pictures and here I truly think that is evident.

Surfs Up!!!

September 7, 2011

On a brief trip to the tip of the continental US. We stopped by to see some uniquely northwest surfers catching some sets before the sun finally broke through on a labor day weekend

Jena & Mark Engagement Shoot

May 22, 2010

Although it was a beautiful week out, upon waking up on Saturday it seemed our luck had run out. However, the weather was able to hold out and stay dry through the entire shoot. It is nice to have an arboretum up north and not have to drive all the way into Seattle to find such beauty. Here are some of my favorite shots!

It Never Gets Old

May 11, 2011

It Never Gets old. Baseball is ingrained into us as Americans. I LOVE IT! Although the local team is not doing so hot, there is something about the sweet smell of fresh cut grass, the smell of a authentic brats, where you know they just killed the animal around the corner, and the refreshing taste of a cold brewsky once you finally sit down at your seat.

From the Darkness

March 27th, 2011

Walking through the woods on a early spring day, poking through the foliage you could see the sun coming through. It was so intense and great to be out a day when we had gone 146 days below 55 Degrees.

Nisqually Earthquake 10 Years Later

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the Nisqually Quake. I had been in earthquakes before but nothing like this. I was 17 years old and still in high school. It was a typical morning history class when you started to hear the sound before a vibration was felt. Being within close proximity to the capital building, my first thought, also voiced by others in the class room was a bomb had gone off. As the vibrations started it still was not registering as an earthquake but my next conscious thought was that Mt. Rainer was erupting. The noise grew louder, and louder, the shaking became unbelievable, as if the earth itself was a salt shaker. The teacher's face became as pale as could be and just froze. Another classmate and myself, both having gone through earthquakes in California and Japan, yelled at everyone to get under their desks. As I looked through the window out into the open field you could see the ground ripple. It was as if someone had dropped a ball into a pond of water and the ripples were spreading out from the center. You could see the tennis courts lift up and then sink back down. The sound was unbearable, you would be shouting at someone six inches from your face and you could not hear a word they said.Tiles were falling glass was breaking, it went on for what seemed a lifetime but was only 45 seconds in total. Just as soon as it started it stopped.

Nessa Dorma

Its hard to believe it was over a year ago I was in Italy and experiencing the vast culture which is contained. However going back though my pictures I thought it be nice to associate some stories with these pictures.
At the Dorma in Florence, we happened upon the morning mass, and not only were we able to experience a traditional catholic mass in Italian, one of the priests invited us to take part and be part of the mass. It was a once in a lifetime.
