Rocking Images from October 2015


October was a fun month of shooting: Multiple assignments, booked a few weddings, portrait sessions, and some features.

First are a couple of family sessions.

I met Kristin, her husband Aaron, and their son Riley at Semiahoo Resort near Blaine, Wash. We shot at an old boat there as well as on the beach on the resort ground.

Riley loved the camera. Not only was he a cute kid, he was easy to work with as well. It made for a great shoot.

A few days later, I met Stephanie, husband Derrick, daughter Jordyn, and son Dakot. My wife and I met them up at Silver Lake to get some fall foliage. But unfortunately

The May family was really great to work with.

For the Bellingham Herald, I covered a few football games and assignments for Whatcom Magazine
