A Good Day...

Today we went HERE... I would have taken pics but cameras aren't allowed. So instead you get a pic of my ticket. As we're waiting in event traffic to exit the freeway. 30,000 fans. One Silver Fox. And good friends. It was a fun day, I'm glad we went.

New Beginnings...

I realize I've been an infrequent blogger since Kendall arrived. And I don't know about you but I've really missed posting things these last few months! LOL So...I've decided I'm going to try uploading just one photo every other day... I can at least manage that can't I? So here's to new habits. Wish me luck!

Welcome Back Brother...

My brother and his wife have been like free spirits the last 2 & 1/2 years. Little vagabond gypsies... Hippies really. They quit their jobs, sold their house and travelled. For two and a half years. Yes, Crazy. Yes, Lucky. I know. But what THEY don't know is how much we've missed them. And I'm SO happy to report that my DEAR brother Chad is on a plane AS WE SPEAK from Buenos Aires to American soil. Their trip is done, el finite', Finally! And I couldn't be happier. Both to see him and also because I can finally stop worrying about him dead in a ditch somewhere. Not joking. So Welcome Back Brother, it'll be good to have you home!

Chad, at Machu Pichu

Cause sometimes you can't just pick ONE...

I've seen lots of blogs using photo collages these days and now I know why. You can show way more pics with way less uploading! And it's perfect for a sequence of images with a bunch of "keepers" that tell a story. Here's Kendall doing tummy time at 11.5 weeks. Love this little Bean.

You can make the collage bigger by LEFT clicking it Once, then LEFT clicking it AGAIN to enlarge it. Use the scroll bars to scroll up or down to view the pics then hit the back button on your browser to return to the post.

When we brought Yogi home from the shelter almost 6 years ago he had the sweetest, softest, velvety, light pink nose. It was so cute, I loved it. But these last two years it's slowly turned brown. He's getting age spots too. (He IS eight after all). Poor Yogs. Just goes to show you no one's exempt from aging... :(

Family Portraits... {Eva, Ron, Tionna, Tamearra, Sharief & little Cayne}

I recently took pics of this fun, beautiful family from the Renton area. Mom & Dad (Eva & Ron), daughters Tionna & Tamearra, Tamearra's fiance Sharief and their adorable baby Cayne. This shoot was easy-breezy even though it was the morning of the I-405 closure and during our super summer heat wave. But despite the bright light we were able to find a small park nearby with green grass and some cool shade to work in. It was great meeting everyone! Here are some of my favorites from your shoot.

As usual all images are low resolution and for viewing purposes only. To make the picture larger left click the image Once, then click Again to enlarge. Hit the back button on your browser to return to the post.

Weddings...{Tony & Diane}

A couple weekends ago I was the second shooter for the talented Dana at the wedding of Tony and Diane. Believe it or not this bride is a mortician! But her personality is quite the opposite of her day job--she's definitely full of life and laughter. The wedding was held at the Marysville Opera House in Marysville, WA. It was a lovely location and the weather was picture perfect. The bride and groom looked smashing and the groom was so in love with his bride his face literally lit up every time she was by his side. I'd have to say it was a storybook wedding. Here are some of my favorite images from their special day. Congratulations Tony and Diane, may you live Happily Ever After!

PS See previous post for a few "vintage-style" images...

Weddings... {Tony & Diane}

I'll do a real post for this wedding soon but wanted to post these separately cause I thought they turned out really cool. My usual editing style is high contrast/high color and getting the image to look as close to the real thing as possible. But a couple weeks ago I was the second shooter for a military wedding and couldn't resist turning some of my pics into old vintage-style photos. There's just something about the uniform and the white dress that makes these look classic and timeless. I love how they turned out!

Hope your Fourth was a Blast...

We had a long weekend at the beach with family and plenty of fireworks to boot. Hope you had a nice one too.
