We went for a hike, did a little camping, and enjoyed friends and rain!

Kids in the woods.

The allure of exploring and the fun of camaraderie had these kids excited for a night in the woods. On a cold, damp night, a group of children from Seattle hunkered down in the woods to learn more about themselves and their surroundings. I caught these moments in between hikes, dinner and cloud bursts. Their…

Portraiture

People fascinate me.  All kinds of shapes, colors and sizes intrigue me.  It is what I like shooting best.  Getting to know someone, understanding their personality and slipping into their world all are apart of capturing them, their mood and their style.  This set is a more informal look at portraiture, as I see it.
