I had to pleasure of spending the day with Tim and Katie to capture some portraits of them in Bellingham, Washington. This was my first engagement portraits session ever and I hope they like the photos. Here are a few of my favorites from the photo session.
In 2012 no one really knew who these two best friends Doug Baldwin and Richard Sherman were. When I took this photo I had no idea two years down the road they would help bring a Super Bowl to Seattle. I am pretty damn happy one of the Seattle pro teams won a championship and I got to witness it… For the past several weeks I have taken photos of Seahawks 12 man rallies, local residents going to the Super Bowl and pretty much any and everything Seahawks related for The Bellingham Herald.

I had the pleasure of meeting with the Bellingham Ceili Club for a photoshoot Wednesday evening in Bellingham. You can find out more information about the Ceili Club by going to their website BellinghamCeiliClub.com
My little brother is back from New York and my full family is actually together for the first time in a long time on Christmas. Instead of just taking a basic photo I decided to make a few portraits of my family this year and combine them into one photo. I also took a bunch of portraits for my brother while he was here. He is working on his improv/sketch comedy in New York, so while my dad was sleeping on the couch and my mom and sister were talking we made the short video below… And then we made another video using one of his ideas: Anyways…Merry Christmas from the McDonald family!
I have never really been a portrait photographer and over the past two months I have been reading every book I can on the subject and studying the art. I also purchased new SB 910 flashes, and other studio gear, so I can start creating portraits and perfect the art. I met with Dustin last night and gave my first serious attempt of capturing portraits that you can see here. I even tried some light writing techniques to get some more unique photos.
