Feeling like a “Senior” – Senior Portraits at Discovery Park

It’s always extra special when a friend asks me to photograph their family, especially a long-time friend from my college days at University of Washington (go Huskies!). I’ve known Krissi since the days we ran around campus and possibly some other “college related” things off campus. =) Talk about a reality check. Her eldest, Kyle, was graduating high school soon and needed senior portraits!

They wanted a park that was near some body of water so we opted for Discovery Park in Seattle. Kyle made my job easy, he was a natural in front of the camera. I don’t think there was a “bad” photo of Kyle in any of the series I took of him. And I feel like he was channeling his “inner model” because he’s totally got the “serious” look down. Tyra would be so proud. Wait, did I just “age” myself? Is Top Model even still on anymore?!

Let’s just say that this high school senior made me feel like a “senior.” As Jennifer kindly put it, I am more than twice his age. EEK!

Congratulations Kyle (and Krissi)! Keep reaching for the stars… and with your mom as your number one support system, you’ll be able to make it to the moon and back.

Ari Shapiro Keynote Speaker at Breakfast with Champions

For the past handful of years, we’ve been fortunate to cover King County Bar Foundation’s Breakfast with Champions. This year’s keynote speaker was Ari Shapiro of NPR’s All Things Considered program. He was such an eloquent speaker and kept the entire room engaged and entertained. This being a presidential election year, of course politics and name-dropping of presidential candidates were part of his speech. He went on to tell us how various Presidents and candidates, past and current, win the people, or at least grab the people’s attention.

“You must appeal to their hearts…” He went on to say how politics, candidates, and elections are like a Hollywood movie — you must engage and connect with the people, you must entertain. And you know what? Ari Shapiro did just that.

In all the years taking photographs of this event, this is the first we’ve seen so many “selfie” requests with the keynote speaker. Come to think of it, we should have asked for a selfie!

Winter Family Photos: The Alnas Family

Happy holidays! Hope everyone is finishing up their last minute shopping and staying warm. Here’s a little photoshoot I’d like to share with you.

You may recognize the Alnas family. I’ve taken their photos many times over the years — from their wedding, birthday parties, child’s baptism, etc. We’ve shared many of their milestones together and I’ve been honored to capture many of those memories. It’s been over a year since we’ve last seen each other and I can’t believe how much their two little girls (Camille “Cami” and Peyton “Pey”) have grown. Pey (the youngest) was barely walking the last time I saw her and now she’s running … away from me and the camera! You’ll see…

It was a bone-chilling morning in Tacoma, WA but thank goodness I remembered to grab handwarmers. You’ll notice that in some of the shots, Cami is holding onto those little warmers keeping her cute little fingers warm. Keeping her a tad warm was probably why she cooperated with me more than her little her sister.

Below, it looks like Peyton is posing for the camera but really, she was checking to see how much farther she has to run up the stairs to get away from me.

This photo below is one of my favorite shots from our session. It’s so real that it’s imperfectly perfect. Does that even make sense? I can’t blame her. It was really cold and she wanted to play! =)Winter Family photos at UW Tacoma | I CANDI Studios Winter Family photos at UW Tacoma | I CANDI Studios

No better way to end a session than with a cup of piping hot chocolate and snowman cookies! Starbucks to the rescue.

Real Women, Real Stories: WILLO Annual Storytelling Festival

Women’s Intergenerational Living Legacy Organization (WILLO) is a community based organization with the belief of the power of story-telling. WILLO is creating an environment where women and girls can share and celebrate their stories.

Six women were featured at this event, sharing their personal stories, discussing their childhood and the journey that led them to be the amazing women they are today. The audience was captivated and so was I. Each year, I cover many events and it’s easy to fixate on the technical elements of photography but it was nearly impossible not to listen and connect in the raw emotion of their stories.

As these women shared their lives, we shared our laughs and tears with them. Their openness and honesty was surprising and humbling. What an inspiration to know where these women came from and to be the prominent women they are now. It’s truly awe-inspiring.

Reunited: A Perfect Seattle Day with The Fritzley Family

I met Katie and Maitland about 3 years ago at our first session together — it was their 2nd Wedding Anniversary. You can imagine how thrilled I was when they reached out to me again for another session —  this time, with a new addition to their family, beautiful baby girl Sloane.

It was a perfectly overcast morning and what better way to spend “a perfect Seattle day” than at Pike Place Market. The market was just starting to wake up as we walked by all the stores and vendors. We had a lot of catching up to do since the last time we were together. Of course, the highlight was Sloane. I have to say, she is probably the most relaxed and chill baby whom I’ve ever met. The biggest “problem” we had with her was that her uberly cute boots kept falling off. No problem, really. Everyone loves barefoot babies.

One of the many reasons I love my job is being able to work with my clients time and time again. It’s a privilege being able to document a moment in their lives as they continue to grow and change … to capture their story, our story, together.
