The look of Pendleton

Mom called in a panic…do we have time to meet the yearbook deadline? Of course! I met up with Emily at Lincoln Park. Again, shooting in November is always a challenge but we managed to squeak in a great session before the rain began. Emily had gotten all sorts of advice from her model friends on how to pose… yet her natural stance, willing attitude and natural beauty came shining through. She was an easy subject for my philosophy on shooting…simple, honest, real.

And remember, it’s never too late for senior portraits.

 

Family time

The Anawalts call every year for the annual holiday photo. Capturing images at this time of year is always weather dependent but the crisp early morning air and sun breaks all worked in our favor. Traversing the property we found lots of interesting areas for the pics. We go through our ritual of groupings including mom and dad, mom with the girls, dad with the girls and the family all together.

Remember, it’s always a great time to capture family images….

Fall is for seniors!

I love it when high school seniors know what they want. Ci had some definite ideas on location and clothing as we headed to Discovery Park. With interesting trees to climb, fall colors, and beautiful fields we hit the jackpot! Take a look….

The Seattle Polish Film Festival presented this compelling documentary that follows the developing friendship of a young boy and an artist both of whom are disabled in the same way. The artist is older, wiser, and lived a life already filled with obstacles for which he has found solutions or simply devised a state of mind to deal with the lack of arms. Only going to prove that if someone is determined, goals can be reached despite disabilities.

Director, Monika Melen was present and spent close to 30 minutes answering questions before a crowd of 40 guests. Click here for photos.

Film festival guests Monika Melen and Maciej Sobieszczanski were both on hand and will continue to be throughout the Seattle Polish Film Festival  which runs thru October 29, 2017.
