Shay ~ Class of 2014

I had a chance to work with Shay last weekend for his Senior pictures and we had a great day!  Weather was lousy at first (T-Storms!), but it passed quickly which left us with beautiful overcast light for his Senior Pictures!   Shay is graduating Arlington High School in June of 2014 and is hoping to get into UW for Engineering (or maybe Political Science – time will tell!).  He’s already been accepted to WSU & is also looking at a school in California (Occidental University in LA – where the president went!) – so he’s checkin’ out his options! Shay’s Dad has been a Firefighter in Everett for the last 20+ years, so while we were shooting in downtown Arlington we got permission to shoot at the fire station, which we thought was pretty cool since that’s been a part of his life too!  We also did some nice work at the school & at a local park – all in all, a great day for a great Senior Session!  Good luck Shay – the future looks bright!

    Sarah ~ Family & Senior Session

    I met up with Sarah & her family back on 08/11/13 at Kayak Point State Park in Stanwood for a Family Session & a few Senior Photographs of her daughter Natasha (Mount Baker High School, Class of 2014).  We had a blast!  The weather was beautiful and the session flowed really well from working with Sarah’s entire Family to doing Natasha’s Senior pictures.  There were some really cool spots at the park & I was able to get some great high angles!  I really liked Natasha’s teal & white outfit with those awesome books (had to get a detail of those!) – great choice!  It was a wonderful day working with a wonderful family;  THANK YOU Sarah for this opportunity to work with your wonderful family!

    Riley ~ Class of 2013

    I met up with Riley on 05/04/13 to shoot his Senior Session at Howarth park in Everett.  Riley brought his canine buddy (‘Chief’) & we had beautiful light during the session.  Riley is going to be graduating Lakewood High School this year (Class of 2013) and he’s got plans to move down to Southern California to get into Community College & Skateboard (he wants to go pro!)  Riley is also is really into music and said he may wind up going into music production.  California is a land of open possibilities, so let’s wish Riley the best of luck as he pursues his post-graduation dreams South of Seattle!

      Kim ~ Class of 2013

      VPP caught up with Kim (& her friend Ryleigh) at Haller Park in Arlington for an awesome Senior Session on 11/04/12.  Mom & Dad brought along a very special family chair & Ryleigh got some ‘buddy shots’ with Ms. Kim.  Great light, great backgrounds and great energy from Kim made this shoot a real success.  Kim is an aspiring photographer herself and plans on studying photography next year after in college!  Here’s wishing Kim & Ryleigh and the rest of the Class of 2013 a bright & happy future post-graduation!

        Amber ~ Class of 2013

        VPP met up with Amber (& her boyfriend Syd) at Larabee State Park in Bellingham on 10/28/12 for a great Senior Session! Fall light, beautiful leaves and the stunning backgrounds of Larabee were a recipe for a dynamic set of images with Amber (& Syd)! Both Amber and Syd are part of the 2013 Graduating Class of Oak Harbor High School.  Amber is going on after graduation to pursue a career in Video Production and Syd wants to get into Welding. Congratulations to you both & wishing you the best for your life beyond graduation!
