Kimmy & Foad in Tacoma

It's always fun for us when a couple does something a little off the beaten path. Before their wedding at The Vault, Kimmy and Foad brought their dog to downtown Tacoma so that we could get a few shots of them all together in their formal clothes.

They were running about ninety minutes late so it was much darker outside than we were expecting and we only had a few minutes before moving on to the family portraits. Even so, we both love how these photos turned out, especially since we captured some great dusk coloring by adjusting our cameras to a high ISO.

These are two of my favorite pics from the wedding. Thanks to Kimmy and Foad for the great idea, and to their pup for making such a cute subject!

Half a Birthday

Over the holidays, we visited my family in the Bay Area. We took this photo of my sister, brother-in-law and nephew during a walk along the lagoon that borders my parents' property.

Kyle turned six months old on Christmas Eve. Not surprisingly, we celebrated the occasion with portraits. This is one of my favorites because I can appreciate my sister's genuine smile and how everyone is interacting in their own way — Fiona: with an open smile, Kyle: with a more timid grin, and Dave: more serious, protective and gentle. It was fun to see how much Kyle had changed (already!) and we really enjoyed spending time with everyone. Happy New Year!
