Alyssa’s Senior Year

What an amazing day! Alyssa was kind enough to meet me at one of my favorite urban backdrops…downtown Tacoma’s Museum of Glass district. This was my first time meeting Alyssa, but I have known her parents for 100 years (give or take), and I was blessed when they asked me to document Alyssa’s senior year with a series of photos.

A Sumner High senior, Alyssa is all class! What a beautiful young woman! We had lots of time to chit chat and find out what her hopes and dreams are. She wants to be a veterinarian, and is considering a number of prestigious schools for her degree.

I hope you all enjoy Alyssa’s senior session as much as I do. Some of my finest work, I must say:)

Thank you, Alyssa, for a terrific shoot! Congratulations, Senior Lady!:) This is gonna be a great year!!!

NW Endeavor Property Solutions

Hi Friends,

Well, we normally do not do this, but we are going to make an exception this time because of our relationship with these awesome folks.


NW Endeavor Property Solutions, LLC is a small, family-based company based in Washington that was founded on the desire to help people with REAL ESTATE related financial issues find answers to their problems and of improving neighborhoods one house at a time.

Life often throws curveballs at us. Divorce, death, taxes, foreclosure, cash crunches, and job or career changes can cause anyone to desire to move out of your house. And sometimes you do not have the time you need and have to act quickly. They will often buy properties as is.  They don’t care about the condition so there is no need to do a major cleaning or try and make repairs. They:

  • save you time by not having to market the property and showing it to hundreds of potential buyers;
  • offer fair pricing and will give you a legitimate offer, usually within 48 hours after viewing;
  • pay cash with the intention of closing quickly.

Like us, they pledge to always treat our business partners, suppliers, contractors, and customers with dignity and respect. They always strive to create a “win-win” scenario for property owners that we purchase from, and offering a high-quality rehabilitated and updated house to potential property buyers. We will always live up to our promises, and be a good corporate neighbor.


So without any hesitation, we proudly endorse NW Endeavor Property Solutions. They can be reached at (253) 200-1758 or

Iceland, Day 5

Lack of sleep starting to catch up to me.

Started the day at Black Beach outside of Vik, getting some shots of the sunrise over the glacier and the beach. After which, spent a few hours around the guest house where we were staying, and finally ended the days at various waterfalls, including Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss Waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss was an absolutely wonderful waterfall to photograph, as we were there at sunset and this is a waterfall that you can walk behind. You get drenched and the path isn’t all that great, but it is definitely worth the effort to get some incredible photographs. Ended the day chasing the Northern Lights around the south end of the country. They were not as visible this night as they were the previous nights, so I was unable to capture anything too dramatic.

Website Back Up Again

Just a quick note to say thank you for your patience as we worked and continue to work on getting our website back up and functional again.

And a great big THANK YOU to Chad and the gang at GoDaddy for their help in moving my site back to their servers from BlueHost. BlueHost was the absolute worst in helping me fix things and we should have never moved from GoDaddy in the first place. But I digress.

Thank again for your support and blessings on your day.
