Headshots

Hi Folks,

Happy New Year. I pray that your Christmas was full of joy and special times spent with friends and loved ones.

I just wanted to give you a heads-up—we are back doing headshots again. With one caveat: groups only. Individuals can be done but with some conditions and limitations (call or email for details).

We recently completed a group of doctors who had come together at a local hotel for a conference and we were able to get 25 of their headshots completed while they were there (example below).

If your groups is interested, please consider giving us a call we’ll get you take care of.

In the mean time, blessings to you and your family.

Congratulations, Nicole!

Occasionally, I get a chance to shoot a different kind of senior. Congratulations, Nicole! A recent graduate of Central Washington University, Nicole contacted me to commemorate her college career with a small photo session. Nicole was unable to walk with her classmates, and consequently, had no photo recognition. This is where I came into the picture (no pun intended). I was happy to help her out, and because she was now back at home and had an available schedule, Nicole thought this would be the perfect time to document this exciting time in her life. Thank you, Nicole, for being such a fun and willing participant:)

I wish you all the best in your career plans, Nicole. Stay in touch:)

Veena

Wow! What a beautifully cool change to our weather here in the PNW! I hope you all are enjoying the reprieve we have been blessed with:)

I would like to introduce Veena to you all. I met Veena and her family earlier this week. Our photo shoot was to be a gift to Veena, from her parents, for her 20th birthday. I thought this was such a gift of love…that her parents would want to honor Veena with a commemoration of her departure from her teen years and usher her lovingly into her 20’s.  This is a wonderful, brilliant, sweet and beautiful young woman, who welcomed me into the privacy of her family relationship. I thoroughly enjoyed our session and am so excited to deliver to Veena and her family, this dedication.

Veena, I wish you all the best in your most prosperous future. I pray that you will find all of the success you are reaching for in these last few years of your college career. Please keep in touch with me. You are such a treasure now. I can’t wait to see the woman you become!

Caitrin will be starting her senior year at Franklin Pierce High School this fall. We have decided to try something different with her.

Alden-PHS 2014

Recently, I had the distinct honor of photographing Alden for his senior year. What an amazing young man!  Alden is gifted in the arts, so it was only fitting that he wanted his shoot at the Puyallup High School Performing Arts Center, where he spends much of his time. This was a unique location for me to shoot a senior, and I was so pleased with the unique backgrounds this location had to offer.

Thank you for the opportunity to honor your career at PHS, Alden.  It was a pleasure to meet you and your family.  Best wishes to you and your successful future.

Blessings,

~Lynette

Lovely Grace-Senior Photos

The latest senior I photographed is Grace.  She embodies her name. What a lovely and sweet young lady, Grace is.  I thoroughly enjoyed out time together during her senior portrait session. With so much garbage throughout our young population, it is so refreshing to know that there are still young people with good values and manners that come from well grounded families.  Grace has restored my love for these young women. Thank you, Grace. And thank you, Kim, for sharing your most precious possession with me for a few hours.

Congratulations, Grace, on your senior year and upcoming graduation. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

Please enjoy a sample of Grace’s photo session.

Brett-Class of 2014

I had the great honor to photograph Brett this past weekend. What an awesome guy! We had a great time shooting his senior photos in downtown Tacoma near the Museum of Glass and UW Tacoma. Brett is a terrific athlete (this season on the football field) and so fun loving. As you can see from this small sample from his senior session, Brett is all smiles and spreads joy to all he comes in contact with. I can hardly wait ’til we meet up for the second half of his senior session. I am calling it the “stadium shoot”, where we will be concentrating on all things football. Enjoy these few photos of Brett, and stay tuned for round two!

Congratulations, Brett! We wish you the very best for your senior year and all that life will bring you. You truly are a light in this world.

Doug’s Senior Photographs

Just realized that we did not post senior photographs for Doug, who graduated from Puyallup High School in June.  We are so sorry for not doing this earlier.

So….our congratulations go out to our new friend, Doug.  One of the things like that I love about photographing young people is their unique sense of identity. Sometimes, they don’t even know who they are yet, but that is the challenge I love-to bring out something that says who they are. Doug’s quiet intensity is captured well in these photographs and I wish him all the best in life.

Lynette.

Brittney and Ashley-PHS Twin Graduates

This week I had the unique opportunity to photograph two lovely ladies, twins,  getting ready to graduate from Puyallup High School.  I met up with Brittney and Ashley early on Thursday morning on Ruston Way along the waterfront. It was a beautiful day! Bright and sunny and warm. Brittney and Ashley were a joy to shoot! Very energetic and willing to pose in all kinds of crazy ways.  It was a great day and a great session! We ended our morning with photos at the Museum of Glass, then off to Starbucks to complete an amazing Senior Shoot.  I can’t wait to deliver these grads their portfolios and have them share with their family and friends. Congratulations girls! PHS class of 2013!!!

Best wishes to you both,

Lynette
