Coldwell Banker Best Homes Business Portraits

I had the opportunity to photograph two local Coldwell Banker agents recently. Anne McLaughlin and Carol Wise have teamed together to open a new office here in Port Townsend.  I just delivered a copy of their recent business portraits to their lovely location overlooking the Port Townsend Golf Course. The office is located at 1441 F Street., Suite C in Port Townsend. You can reach them at (360) 385-0836 or email them at info@porttownsendrealestate  here in Port Townsend.

They were wonderful to work with in the studio and I'm sure they could help you with any of your real estate needs you have here in Port Townsend, visit their site at

Portrait Session with Baby Ida

Last week baby Ida came to the studio for a series of photos with a variety of outfits and some of her favorite toys. Ida is just 13 months old and has such a wonderful personality, she was up for every pose we tried and it was fun working with both her Mom and Grandmother during the session. Ida brought along her own piano and her favorite blocks that actually belonged to her either her Mom or Dad when they were children. I loved the way the blocks looked in the photo and stopped by Abracadabra in downtown Port Townsend to buy my own colorful set.

I purchased the two cute tutu's above and the matching headbands from Seams to Last. If you haven't visited this children's clothing store in Port Townsend you must stop by and see all the clothes Michelle has, many of which she has made herself. It is located at 940 Water Street in downtown Port Townsend in the same building as the Bead Shop. I had so much fun after this session I ran back to the store and purchased two matching tube tops and a pair of red wings.

Handsome Rosie, Bill and Momma

What a wonderful time I had yesterday photographing Rosie, Bill and his Momma. The light was lovely yesterday with the fog giving soft light both inside and out for these images.

Port Townsend Family Portrait

A couple weeks ago I photographed the Hemsley family in my studio. This is one of my favorite with three generations and the single image of Amelia.

Doug Gordon Workshop in Seattle

Last Tuesday I attended a Doug Gordon High Fashion, High Glamour Workshop in Seattle along with my friend Kay Harper. It was a half day workshop devoted to a variety of techniques for posing the bride and groom. The weather was beautiful in Seattle and we spent a majority of the time outside as Doug demonstrated his posing style.  Although I was never in the same position as Doug and his camera I did get a couple shots that I'm posting. It was a great day filled with lots of tips in posing to create lovely flattering images of the wedding couple.

Fun Portraits

My friends David and Casey had their grandchildren visiting recently from Florida. The girls stopped by the studio and I took a couple photos of them.
