It’s been well over a year since these were taken, but I’m still gushing with pride about them! I finally got the ‘best of’ loaded on a flickr acct. I planned and directed a 3-stage photography workshop with the Burien ward young women. These images taken by them with the equipment and assistance of two photographers.

Day one - Camera + photography + composition workshop with the incredibly talented photographer Carina Skrobecki.

Day two - Photo ‘blitz’. Each girl explored Seahurst beach and got familiar with their own DSLR.

Day three - Photo service project. Free portraits for families in our community at the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden.

It was a lot to squeeze into just three two hour blocks. It still stands as one of my favorite memories with them. And I miss them all to pieces. 

I’d love to do this type of thing again. Sumner YW, what do you think?

This is the best description of Esther, the first time she noticed her feet during a diaper change. Except it was so much cuter!!!

Maris Farms is really a GREAT pumpkin patch to visit, a great farm. Elena and I had already been to the Spooner farms one just down the road from us, which was also fun. This time we went with Nina’s preschool class to Maris Farms. Lots of great fun for kids and families. There was more stuff to do than we had time or energy for!

First thing in the morning with Grammy C.
She reeaally deserved a good night’s rest after a day (and then another half day) of domestic slavery to meet my obsessive nesting demands.
