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.

Mi Familia – A Golden Anniversary Celebration

Well, just a personal note.

Last week was my parents 50th anniversary. 50 years of wedded bliss. Can you believe it?? A rare event these days to say the least. Anyway, last night we celebrated with a little dinner party with immediate family. What a great night! We don’t get together often enough, so this was a wonderful time to come together and celebrate the reason that every single one of the people in these pictures is here.

So thanks, Mom & Dad, for deciding to spend the rest of your lives together and for being great role models of marriage to us all.

Love you guys!

Blessings,

Chris.

Jillian and Brenden

Merry Christmas to you all! What a wonderful and joyous time to celebrate the birth of our Savior.

Recently, I had the privilege of photographing Jillian and Brenden. These two will be getting married this upcoming summer and have asked Chris and myself to be their photographers. We are honored! And can hardly wait for August to get here:)

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. We took advantage of one of the few dry (but cold) December days. There are a few pics with an extra little cutie (my favs).  Enjoy:)

PLU Football 16Oct29

I love shooting football!!!

These images are from a PLU (Pacific Lutheran University) vs. across town rivals UPS (University of Puget Sound) last last month. Fortunately, the weather held out and the sun even peaked out a bit. All in all, it was a very nice day and a great football game.

PLU won by-the-way.

Enjoy.

Chris

2016 Half Marathon

Hi Friends,

We happened to swing by the 2016 Fall City Half Marathon last month on a quick trip to Snoqualmie. Not to belabor a point, but the weather was horrible and we didn’t stick around. I happened to capture a few images from the start of the race and the end. Then we went home.

Enjoy.

Chris.

2016 JBLM Air Expo

Hi Friends.

I love airplanes! I love airshows! I could spent all day watching airplanes roll in and out of an airport, not to mention anything about aerobatics and demonstration flights.

In late August, Lynette and I managed to make our way to Joint Base Lewis-McChord for the 2016 JBLM Air Expo, the first time it had been put on in a number of years. I think the last time we went out kids were very little-old enough to remember but too young to drive (and if you know my kids you know that they are grown now). There were a number of acts scheduled to appear, including a number of WWII aircraft and a demonstration by the U.S. Army Golden Knight Paratrooper Team and the USAF Thunderbirds. The car was gassed up, the batteries were charged, the weather was supposed to be perfect and everything was a “go” as far as I was concerned.

Then Saturday rolled in along with the weather. While it wasn’t raining, thank God, the wind was horrific. And if you know anything about aviation, wind and airshows are not a good combination. So a lot of the acts were canceled for the day. However, there were still a decent number of demonstrations and I managed to get off a few good shots.

So what we have here are a few shots of a North American B-25 Mitchell, a Lockheed P-38 Lightning, a Lockheed T-33, a Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, a Boeing C17, and of course the USAF Thunderbirds that are General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcons. I also have a couple shots of some of the static displays, and couple of shots from around the grounds, a shot of ‘yours truly’ (complements of Lynette), and a few of all the other cameras shooting various flights.

I hope you enjoy.

Blessings,

Chris.
