Elissa the Great!

Every so often I get the opportunity to take photos for my family. This weekend, Elissa (my niece) and I spent the morning together commemorating her senior year with a fun photo session. Elissa was most interested in an urban setting, so of course, I took her to the downtown area of Tacoma. Elissa is an amazing dancer and wanted to get a few photos with her toe shoes. I think we managed to get some great ones, and of course, all of my niece’s photos were spectacular 🙂

Thanks, Elisa, for asking me to celebrate this year with you. It was a pleasure and an honor and I love you:)!!

Lauren and Kaitlyn’s Senior Session

It’s Senior Photo time again! Congratulations to all of the soon to be 2018 high school graduates! Our calendar is filling up and my computer is working overtime, but that’s how I like it!!:) Woohoo seniors!! Love ’em!

Last week Kaitlyn and Lauren met me at the Pagoda on the Tacoma waterfront. This is one of my favorite spots senior photos. There are so many different backdrops offering such a great variety. These lovely ladies were awesome! They were naturals at posing, allowing me more time to shoot. Thanks, you guys!

It was a gorgeous day with clear skies (unusual this summer with the smoke that’s been lingering). I had a blast! And have been editing through the week. Here are a few of my favorites. It was hard to choose from so many great pics.

Congratulations Kaitlyn and Lauren. This will be an amazing senior year for you both! Enjoy everything RHS has for you this year. Here’s to your next great phase in life!

New Years Eve on the Beach

Huh? New Years Eve?? It’s now September-isn’t it? I think so, so what business is it of mine to post something from New Years Eve? 

Well, it’s my blog and I can do whatever I want. And since I haven’t posted these pictures anywhere yet, and since I’m bored tonight, I thought maybe I’d share a few photographs from a trip to the beach that Lynette and I took last NYE.

So enjoy. And as always, blessings to you. And if you don’t like the selfies, too bad. Hahaha. 😉

Jill and Brenden

Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone! Hope you are all home safe and sound on this Friday night.

Chris and I had the great pleasure of shooting a wedding last weekend. Jillian and Brenden were married in Steilacoom, WA in front of the beautiful Puget Sound on an old time bandstand with their family and friends all watching with joy in their eyes.

Jill tried very hard to stay out of sight of her soon to be husband, and was successful!! Woohoo!! This was not an easy task. Brenden’s first look at Jill was as she was being escorted by her father down the grassy isle. His smile was golden. She was breathtaking. It was a great event, one we will not soon forget.

I hope you enjoy some of the photo selections I chose for their blog. Congratulations, you guys! I hope Chicago treats you well:)

Horse, Horse, Horse, Cecil, and a Swan

Well, its only almost the end of August and I’m so far behind in my blog posts. Big surpise-right? Anyway, we were up in Bellingham last month taking some last engagement photographs of our son and his finance before their wedding. While Lynette was snapping away, I managed to get away and photograph some of the horses at the farm.

These are incredible animals and they were very cooperative for me. Thank you guys (and gals). It’s so much easier for everyone when we all behave. Haha.

Oh, and don’t forget the resident swan.

Blessings,

Chris.

Ryan – A Soccer Stud!!

Had a short opportunity to photograph one of the rising stars in the Puget Sound youth soccer circles. His name is Ryan. He is 8 years old and already is quite the football stud. He dominates midfield and often leads his team to victory.

Thank you to his parents, Steve and Lauri, for introducing us to this fine young man. I look forward to watching him grow and mature into one of the most dominant players we’ve ever seen.

Blessings,

Chris.

Molly’s Bridal Shower

It was a gorgeous day for a tea party.

This past Saturday, my soon to be daughter-in-law, Molly, attended her bridal shower on Lake Samish in Bellingham, WA. Given to her by her besties, Kelsey and McKena, it was a gala event. Beautiful job, ladies!!

There was a spread of scented sweet peas to decorate the lovely tea cup laden table, chocolate covered strawberries, the best cucumber sandwiches I have ever had, a wonderful broccoli salad, lemon bars, champagne, and of course, tea.

Molly was lavished with beautiful and thoughtful gifts. We played fun bridal shower games (with prizes of course). We enjoyed the sun and each others company.

Congratulations, Molly! I can’t wait to see you married to my son!:) He is a lucky man.

Here are a few photos from this grand gathering. Enjoy

Mt. Rainier Panoramic

Hi Friends,

The image below is an 8 photo panoramic I shot of Mt. Rainier taken yesterday. WAIT! You can’t see Rainier? Well neither could we (it should be in the upper right corner of this photo). But if you look closely you may see Mt. Adams off in the distance.

We got a real late start in the day and were hoping to get some sunset shots from Crystal Mountain, but it didn’t look like the clouds were going to break so we made the trek over to Sunrise in the hopes that getting closer might yield a shot or two. Well, it wasn’t to be. Perhaps next time (I will post a few others later on).

Blessings until next time,

Chris.
