Hot Portraits of Fire Dancers with Everlife Entertainment at Sunset

A few weeks ago, I have the fun of photographing a trio of fire dancers for their official company portrait for Everlife Entertainment at sunset. It was a fun, yet challenging, photo session. The three stars were fantastic to work with and am looking forward to another session. Perhaps maybe in the mountains against a star-filled sky?

Mount Baker decimates Hoquiam 39 to 14

Another Saturday game at Civic Field in Bellingham, Wash. I was back after making my deadline filing my images of Lynden defeating Black Hills in District 2A Playoff in the first round. Now the Sun has set and a full Super Moon filled the sky.
