Shot of the Day, August 2 2021

Hello friends. And Happy Monday to you.

I’m not going to belabor the story here but rather keep it short and simple…I took the drone out for a few shots along the Tacoma Waterfront a few weeks back and snapped this photograph of the Port of Tacoma along Commencement Bay. The change in the water color to a carmel/brownish color is the result of glacial runoff from Mt. Rainier that comes down the Puyallup River and empties into the bay. It’s always a various shade or carmel but this time of year it gets particularly noticeable when higher temps melts more snow off the mountain and it picks up more silt as it rolls down. You can see the river about mid way up the picture in the back behind some of the building and steam stacks.

Enjoy the picture.

Video over Pierce County, July 4, 2021

Hello friends,

So if any of you follow my Instagram or Facebook pages and posts, you’ll know that I took the drone out for an extended flight on Independence Day last week. I flew over Thea’s Park in Tacoma, some of Commencement Bay, the Puyallup River, and some of the old fields in Puyallup, not to mention over the neighborhood fireworks once the sun set (click on the word “firework” to be taken to that post).

What I hadn’t done until now is post video of those flights. Here is short compilation video (click the play button in the center of the screen to view).

Click on the tile to view that video. I hope that you enjoy some of the footage. And please call me if there is anything we can do to help you with your business or personal project.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out my other YouTube videos and follow me on Instagram.

Blessings

Chris.

Cool Mustang, Logan!

Happy Christmas time, everyone! This is truly a blessed time of year when we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I am so happy to be blogging about my friend, Logan; we met up in the downtown area of Tacoma for an urban senior session. Such an awesome young man! We had a great time getting some photos of Logan and his very cool Mustang. The day was so cold, but Logan bucked up and toughed it out:) The results are superb! Logan is a great looking kid with tons of personality! He brought his family, too! Love these people!! Thanks, guys, for such a fun time! Can’t wait to get together again.

Congratulations to Logan on his upcoming graduation! You will go far in this life:)!!

Here is a small sample of what we got at our photo shoot:

See Avery

Good morning, Everyone!

It has been a long, wet week, and it doesn’t look like it will be any better this weekend. Ugh! I hope you all are staying warm and dry.

Looks like last weekend was the last good time for photo session opportunities (without an umbrella). I had the chance to spend some quality time with my niece, Avery, and get part of her senior photo session. Avery is graduating from Rogers High School (my Alma mater), which makes it even more fun for me.

Avery wanted to go somewhere “urban”, so my go-to urban site is downtown Tacoma. We spent some time exploring new sites so she could have a unique look to her portfolio. Found it! Avery is a fun and vibrant young lady who is going places. A rock star on the basketball court (more to come at her sport session next spring). We had a great morning! Can’t wait for her to see just how beautiful she it.

Congratulations, Aves! You make me proud!

Thanks Joel!!

What a great day! This past Friday, I got to spend some quality time with my friend, Joel. I have known Joel for many years and I can hardly believe that he is a senior! Crazy, right? Well, Joel and his mom asked me to commemorate Joel’s senior year with a photo session. It was awesome! After a dumping of rain the night before, I woke up to blue sky, perfect for the downtown Tacoma morning rush. Joel met me at my favorite Starbucks, and off we went. He’s a great sport, and easy to work with:) Thanks Joel!! We spent about an hour walking around the Museum of Glass area, looking for some good places to shoot. Here is what we found. Enjoy:)!!

Elissa the Great!

Every so often I get the opportunity to take photos for my family. This weekend, Elissa (my niece) and I spent the morning together commemorating her senior year with a fun photo session. Elissa was most interested in an urban setting, so of course, I took her to the downtown area of Tacoma. Elissa is an amazing dancer and wanted to get a few photos with her toe shoes. I think we managed to get some great ones, and of course, all of my niece’s photos were spectacular 🙂

Thanks, Elisa, for asking me to celebrate this year with you. It was a pleasure and an honor and I love you:)!!

Jillian and Brenden

Merry Christmas to you all! What a wonderful and joyous time to celebrate the birth of our Savior.

Recently, I had the privilege of photographing Jillian and Brenden. These two will be getting married this upcoming summer and have asked Chris and myself to be their photographers. We are honored! And can hardly wait for August to get here:)

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. We took advantage of one of the few dry (but cold) December days. There are a few pics with an extra little cutie (my favs).  Enjoy:)

Fall Family Photos

Happy fall, everyone! We are well into our pre-Christmas prep; shopping, baking (my favorite) and photo sessions for the family Christmas cards.

Last Saturday, we had a beautiful break in our typical fall weather, allowing me to meet up with the Vitt family, at Wright Park, for their extended family photo session. Tom and Laurie have a beautiful and fun family. Previously, I had the pleasure of photographing their daughter, Kelli, for her senior session 2 years ago (see Oct 2014 post). I enjoyed Kelli so much, and was excited to have the opportunity to meet and shoot her family, as well. Tom and Laurie are great! Their grown children, Kelli, Dave and Dan, joined in and were able the get their photo for this year’s family Christmas card . Tom’s brother, Mike was in town and able to join in the group. Laurie had her 2 sisters, Julie and Brenda and her father, Mike, as well. It was a big fun happy group! I had a great time and enjoyed meeting you all!!

I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of your session.

Blessings,

~Lynette
