  • Professional Photographer Magazine Cover!

    We are very honored to have won the Professional Photographer Magazine Cover Contest!

    I always thought this would make a great cover. It was an outtake from a Holiday Cover we shot for CityDog Magazine. Although it didn't quite look right for CityDog, I think it looks pretty amazing on the front of Professional Photographer. I could not be more thrilled with this honor!

Park Explorer

We enjoyed a break in the odd summer weather we have been experiencing lately to go to the park with this little explorer. He had a great time checking out all the swings and slides. He even managed to find himself a stick to walk around with. It was a great day for everyone!

Little ‘S’

Last week I had a fantastic time with this handsome little guy and his mom. Little ‘S’ was SO sweet and adorable, I could have taken pictures of him all day long. Here’s a few from that day. Thanks again mom and little ‘S’!

Back home…

Well I didn’t quite get the thick lush forest like I was hoping. We spent too much time on the water looking at all the fun beaches along the way. We had a blast and would definitely hit the WA coast again. It’s absolutely beautiful!

We have been having an extreme heat wave the past several days. We were on the coast when it started. The rain forest was 85 degrees, and then within 10 miles of heading to the coast the temperature plummeted 22 degrees. You can just see the difference in the pictures.

This first image is from Rialto Beach. The entire beach is tumbled rock. You can sit down in it or put your knees on it, and it is so smooth. The sound the rocks make when the waves are washing them up on the shore was so relaxing.

Here we are not 10 miles from where it was hot and sunny. Beautiful area, with lots of great camping and cabins.

Lake Quinault. This is where we ended up staying. Gorgeous lake and tons to do. The Quinault Rain Forest is here and there are many miles of trails to be hiked. We didn’t happen to hike that many of them, but we saw a little.

Here we are on the Bainbridge Island Ferry back to Seattle. I love how quiet and peaceful the island is next to the big tall busy city in the background. The clouds coming in were amazing!

And back to Seattle at last. Great trip…cannot wait to go back again and get those shots I wanted.:)

The lake, the forest and the coast

Today is our fifth anniversary! This weekend we are heading out to Lake Quinault to hang out on the lake which is located in the Quinault Rain Forest. We are also going to try to make it to Kalaloch to play on the beach. Neither one of us has spent much time in this part of the park, so we are really looking forward to it!

I dug out this old picture that I took with a point and shoot camera on a hike near our house. I love this picture because it reminds me of the rain forest we are headed to and how beautiful it is here, even though we live fairly close to a major city.

My husband, who is 6’4″ looks itty bitty in this picture next to all the huge trees! It will be fun posting pics from our trip to the rain forest and the coast when we get back!

Afternoon at the pool

Today was crazy hot. I will fully admit I am a warm weather wimp. I can appreciate a hot day, but glad I live in an area that has only a few of them. Thankfully, there is a pool nearby where we all tested out some new goggles and hats. It was a fun day for everyone and a great relief from the heat! Here’s to tomorrows cooler weather!
