Welcome! This is a place to enjoy Allen's photography and the ramblings of Suzanne's thoughts as they relate to Allen's photography. Don't worry, the ramblings never go on too long and Allen's photos are a nice accompaniment.
Summer afternoons are a great time for a family portrait session!
These kids were the nicest kids! Both moms swear that they've never seen them behave so well, but I bet they get along like this on more than one occasion. Maybe it was the lovely sunny afternoon or maybe they were just on good behavior. Either way, the whole family made for a fun, and relaxing portrait session. Thanks Holly & Selena!
We had a terrific Mother's day helping Rhonda and Danni celebrate Eli's third birthday! Eli really understands what a camera is and what it does, so it was fun trying to capture the innocent moments. I think Allen succeeded:
What a great kid and what a great family! Thanks for letting us in to watch Eli grow!
We can't believe we have had the good fortune to follow Eli from birth to now three years old.
Here he is at 3 weeks, 1 year, and 2 years old. Today we'll be having a great time in Grandma's yard seeing what Eli gets up to at 3 years.
We went to Mount Vernon this weekend to catch the tulips in bloom. It can get awfully crowded and is very family friendly as well as tour-bus friendly. If you go early in the morning, the traffic is less but that's when the buses show up. By lunch time, the buses are leaving, but the traffic slows to a crawl as people tour the various tulip fields around the Skagit Valley.
Your other choice is to go later, which is what we did. The buses and the many people on the buses are gone, but lines are still long and the flower beds and borders are crowded with families. But it's so beautiful, you have patience with all the selfies and family shots and video recording in order to take your shot. And then you get this:
How did you spend Valentine's Day? We spent it working in the sunshine on a lovely Seattle waterfront park.
The Coburn family is an easy-going family of four. Mom, Dad and two boys: Clyde and Beau. We met the family when Allen took Clyde's picture on a whim one day, long before Beau was in the picture:
Clyde looks the same to me, I think. A big boy now, but still just a little shy of the camera. No, not really shy, slow to warm up I'd say. But then, what a kid! Clyde found all kinds of weathered pieces of wood and sea-washed stones and then set to collecting them all up together. I wonder how Shane and Rachel managed to leave it all at the beach?
And Beau is always smiling. I mean always. He took a face-plant into the sand that left an impression of his face and he came up smiling, mouth full of sand!
A real loving family. It was a pleasure to capture them on a sunny afternoon.
