2022 Commercial Real Estate Video Available

Happy New Years my Friends,

I hope that you were able to ring in the New Years is a safe and sane manner. We did-it was very quiet for us after about 10 p.m. when we left a friends house after a fun time playing cards and catching up on old times. Except for having the neighborhood fireworks going off until after 1 a.m. it was a tranquil way to usher in a new year and a new start.

Anyway, 2022 will bring me a full year of drone and real estate photography and video. In case you missed it, I passed my FAA Part 107 exam last summer and am able to fly an unmanned aerial system (drone) legally and without any issues with the proper certifications in place to put a commercial drone in the air.

So with a full year, I want to extend an offer to you to have my come out and film and photograph your commercial real estate and use the product as part of your marketing campaigns.

If you haven’t seen what that might look at, you can find an example of my video work at the link below. And as far as photographs are concerned, you can see some examples of that work on my real estate portfolio page, albeit that most of it is non-commercial RE. The video I take can be used independently or as part of a sales pitch published by commercial real estate agents. An example of a total marketing piece can be found at the following link: https://vimeo.com/showcase/7164490/video/471901549 (please note this example is not my work nor am I associated with it in any way, shape, or form).

My rates are reasonable, my turn-around is quick, I’m insured, and available most of the time within reason. So don’t hesitate to call me and let’s at least discuss.

Blessings and God’s peace.

Sunflowers, Sunshine and Family Fun!

What a beautiful family and a beautiful sunny day!

I was blessed to photograph the Welton family last weekend at Maris Farms in Buckley.  I loved watching this family interact with each other as they made their way through the farm. The children were so adorable as they ran through the rows of sunflowers (followed by mom and dad, of course). Chris and Linnea are amazing parents and never missed an opportunity to teach their children about the wonders of nature that surrounded them. Tons of great candids! A fantastic and fun documentation of this time in their lives…one they will cherish forever ?

Please enjoy these pics…

Blessings,

Salish to Salish 10K

Last Saturday, I had the unique opportunity to photograph the first annual Salish to Salish 10K in Bellingham. My daughter-in-law, Molly McKenna, organized this amazing event benefiting an awesome non-profit – Skookum Kids.

“Skookum Kids is built around a single big idea: that if we take great care of people, the mission will take care of itself. So we work really hard to make this a delightful place to volunteer and be a foster parent. We believe in health for all, meaning that no person should ever have to sacrifice their own health to serve kids. That’s not to say we don’t work hard (because believe me, we do), but that healthy, happy, well-supported people get more done.”  www.skookumkids.org

With several hundred runners and walkers-time qualified, and a ton of volunteers, this 10K proved to be everything is should have been: a great race, a philanthropic opportunity, and most important, an awareness of a program for foster kids and foster parenting support.

As you will see in the photos, a gorgeous crisp fall day greeted everyone involved. So many helpful volunteers. Many smiles. If you want to help support this event next year, contact Salish Wealth Management, Bellingham-(molly@salishwm.com)

Please enjoy a few of the 500+ pic I captured.

Blessings,

Alyssa’s Senior Year

What an amazing day! Alyssa was kind enough to meet me at one of my favorite urban backdrops…downtown Tacoma’s Museum of Glass district. This was my first time meeting Alyssa, but I have known her parents for 100 years (give or take), and I was blessed when they asked me to document Alyssa’s senior year with a series of photos.

A Sumner High senior, Alyssa is all class! What a beautiful young woman! We had lots of time to chit chat and find out what her hopes and dreams are. She wants to be a veterinarian, and is considering a number of prestigious schools for her degree.

I hope you all enjoy Alyssa’s senior session as much as I do. Some of my finest work, I must say:)

Thank you, Alyssa, for a terrific shoot! Congratulations, Senior Lady!:) This is gonna be a great year!!!

Emily and Joey-The Williams Wedding

It’s summer, and that means wedding season! What a magical time; beautiful brides and handsome grooms are joining together in this most extraordinary commitment. I love it!

This past weekend, Chris and I were blessed to share this extraordinary moment with Joey and Emily. What an amazing couple! You will see from their photos how much love emanates from their eyes. It was a sight to behold; a love story shared with family and friends in the intimate setting of Joey’s home. There were moments of joy and laughter, and tears of emotion flowed throughout the crowd. Splendid!

Congratulations Emily and Joey! You both deserve the world, and I think that’s exactly what you will bring to each other.

Thank you so much for asking us to be a part of your most precious day.

Dan the Navy Man

Well, it’s May, and the weather has finally given us some days to play! Dan and I have been trying to find a dry-ish day to do his senior photo session, and we finally did it!! It could not have been a more perfect day for photos. In fact, when we arrived at Dan’s choice of venue, there were 3 other groups already in session. Popular place…popular day.

Dan is graduating from Puyallup High School in a couple of weeks. He has enlisted in our nation’s great Navy and will be starting boot camp in July. Thank you for your patriotism!

I have known the Vitt family for a few years, now. They have graciously invited me to document a number of special events for them. I love this family! I am so blessed to know the Vitts  and to have had the time with Dan this weekend. He is an awesome and respectful young man. He will do great things!

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, Dan. Be safe out there protecting our country. It is an honor to know you.

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:)!!
