2015 Fauntleroy Fall Festival

I just love this event. Seeing families come together to play in the sun can’t help but make you smile. Some of these families have come thru the photo line since it’s inception. So glad to be part of their family history. Thanks to everyone who made this event possible!  To find your photos click here.

Alki-3509The Alki Harvest Festival is now a family tradition…and I’m so pleased to be part of it!  It was great fun seeing old friends and meeting new ones. The ghosts and goblins enjoyed an evening of pumkin carving, mad science experiments, “Thriller” and of course, the annual souvenier photo.  You can download your complimentary image by clicking here.

PEPSapalooza fun for the entire family

Cheese Louise made an appearance at PEPSapalooza this past weekend photographing family antics during this wonderful family music event that was held at The Bowl at Redhook in Woodinville.

There was music by Caspar Babypants, The Not-Its and Recess Monkey. PNW Drumline, Jumprope Sensation and Turk the Magic Genie, Bubbleman and Giggleworks were also part of the entertainment.

My question is…Who really had more fun…the parents or the kids!?
