It’s about time I got back on my blogging train. Many exciting things have been happening around here, which has taken my attention elsewhere. (more on that later)
I’ve been trying to get out and play as much as possible lately. This last weekend’s adventure with Mary Jo Photography brought us to Olympic National Park, Staircase Trail.
If you are wanting to see lush, green moss and some of the tallest trees in the west, GO. If you are from the Northwest and haven’t made it to the Olympic Peninsula, GO! If this is your backyard like it is mine, WE ARE SO LUCKY.
The Staircase Loop Trail is a little over 2 miles, which easily turns into 5 miles for us with all of our wanderings. It is fairly easy and there were many families out enjoying the cold, crisp day.
We took to the trail with cameras and tripods in hand. One of the things I love about adventuring with Mary, is the no rush vibe we get when we see a spot that HAS to be photographed. These outings are a perfect opportunity to hone our skills with no pressure and the ability to really set up a shot.
I’ve been lucky to photograph some really fun Seniors this year! Taylor was no exception. This gal knew how to take her photo session at Opera Alley in Tacoma to a new level. Lots of fun, some laughter, and natural beauty was shining through for the whole session. I wish Taylor nothing but the best on her year ahead!
Senior Year is nearly finished for many Pacific Northwest high school students.
I had the pleasure of working with Hikaru, a Senior from Packwood HS and exchange student from Japan. We took to the Washington State Capitol for this photo session on a clear and very brisk morning. The flowers were in full spring bloom.
Hikaru had the opportunity to make her journey to the US through a high school exchange. She has been enjoying the adventure so far and will return to Japan in the summer to finish out another year of school before deciding on college. This very bright young woman will do great in whatever she does- the adventure continues! Good Luck to you Hikaru!
