Beaches & Barnacles with the Wicks

The Wicks Girls at Chamber Bay

The weather sure has been strange lately.  I mean it is the middle of July and it’s raining!  Now, I know it is the Pacific Northwest, but come on – enough is enough.

Last week the Wicks family braved the weather and tromped down to Chambers Bay Golf Course for some family photos.  After weeks of rescheduling (due to weather – go figure) we decided to take a chance.  As luck would have it, the rain stopped for the short time we were on location – just enough time to have fun on the barnacle filled, rocky beach at low tide.
Now, all was going well until an angry barnacle unleashed its wrath and decided it wanted blood – literally!  But despite the blood, Ali pushed on like a trooper and continued smiling.  We wrapped up the photo shoot and as we got back to the car, the rain started once again…
The Wick’s family is so much fun! A little rain won’t stop them!  I actually think the light is great and the sky adds depth to the photos.  Add in the earthy colors of the rocks and great images are formed.   Thanks again Kyle and Jolene!  We have to do it again!

Congratulations Miss Washington 2011

Miss Eastside 2011

My friend, Brittney Henry (as seen here as Miss Eastside 2011) was recently crowned Miss Washington 2011!  Wholly Smokes! 

Brittney is just outstanding.  Smart, beautiful, talented  – and an all around good  gal. When she approached me to take some photos after being crowned Miss Eastside earlier this year, I was delighted.  Talk about a fun photo shoot.  Brittney tolerated a cooler than normal spring day at the Linden Golf Course in Puyallup.  She is a natural.  Although she would tell you that she needed help “getting in to the poses” for the photos, in reality she commanded the scene.  It was so much fun (and the course Marshall and some members enjoyed looking on as well).

Congratulations Brittney!  I can’t wait to watch you in the Miss America pagent.
