Picture of the Month

Every month I post an image that I especially liked that was taken that month. Some images are chosen because I think they’re a great image, but sometimes it’s the experience or the subject that matters the most.

Michelle, Robert, Bricen & Carson

August 2020

This month I had a return visit from Michelle’s family, and was introduced to their youngest son, Carson. I first photographed Michelle for her senior portrait, and then I used her as a model for my Pirating Under a Full Moon photo.

The last time I took their family portrait we used our backyard as a plan B because the beach was too foggy. This time, using our backyard was plan A, and it worked just as well.

Lori and I have been enjoying our fire pit area as it allows us to sit outside on Ferndale’s typical chilly evenings. The fact that we often make S’mores just adds to the relief the area has given us from the boredom of sheltering in place during the Covid-19 emergency.

So I thought it would be a fun thing to photograph Michelle’s family enjoying S’mores. We moved the fire pit back to our park area by the creek, and I photographed them without posing while they made their snacks. Initially, Carson was a bit shy, but when he got his first taste of a S’more, he instantly became very photogenic.
