In June, my 16 year old grandson, Zach took Kasi, a long time friend, to the Tenino High School prom. Zach doesn’t drive yet, so we offered to take him to and from the prom. The party was held on a boat that sailed out of the Port of Olympia. They had several hours of cruising, dancing, eating, giggling, and just plain having fun before we had to return to pick them up and get them home.
I was thrilled when Zach agreed to leave a couple hours early so we could shoot some photos. Buying prom photos is expensive for a 16 year old, so he figured getting grandma to do it for free was a great deal. Little did he know the hoops I’d put him through. We ended up shooting at 4 different venues, 6 if you count their homes, and still had lots of time at the dock before they started boarding the boat. But both he and Kasi seemed to enjoy the experience and cooperated completely. The weather was perfect – except maybe too much sun for photos, but for cruising, they couldn’t have asked for better.
I’m looking forward to doing more work like this, so if you’re in the Olympia area and would like to schedule a photo shoot, just click the contact link at the top of the page and send me a message.
