Dan’s sister, my sister, Allison, taught in Panajachel, Guatemala for the 2013 – 2014 school year. She taught 14 kids in a 10′ x 10′ classroom, became fluent in Spanish, and got to know her village and its families like the back of her hand. We’ve learned that visiting a favorite person in a place [...]

Schoening Digital worked with The Parents Union over the course of 8 months or so, and produced a load of great work in support of their efforts to engage parents in their children’s educations. Among a logo redesign, digital and marketing strategy, and a full-on website redesign (learn more on our case study), we also [...]

Christmas carols, one of the best things about the holiday season. A friend from another Seattle agency sings in Seattle Pro Musica, an esteemed choir. I was able to join their warm-up and rehearsal, moments before their big holiday family concert. I missed the show itself because of a wedding, but I was there long [...]

UW Bird Club

Brother Ross has started an international collegiate birding club organization, ICON. Dan and I have been loving the branding, business strategy, and community building conversations that take place whenever we’re all together. Ross been one of the most go-getter entrepreneurs we’ve every talked with. The next day he’s done the thing he mentioned in passing, [...]

Brother Ross invited my parents down to visit him while he was TA-ing a study abroad program in Peru this last summer. He wasn’t being exclusive, he just didn’t know if we’d all be able to make it. We made it happen and it ended up being a big family mad-dash through Lima, Cusco, Puno, [...]

I met Xakary the Magician after his performance at a birthday party I shot in August, and he was right – the delight he brings to children deserves photography that emphasizes the crowd’s energy and reaction. I was invited to one of his assembly shows at a WA elementary school. While I might have distracted [...]

Bellevue Birthday Party

Forty kids, face-painting, blow-up toys, a giant trampoline, crafty cupcakes, and a magician!? That is the recipe for the best 5th birthday party ever. It was so much fun to be a ninja at this party, sneaking around gleeful kids to catch their party faces in action. These feel like true childhood captured and bottled [...]

Molly’s Portrait

Before the leaves dropped Molly and I made it to Greenlake for an afternoon portrait shoot. I was impressed with how comfortable Molly was in front of the camera – especially since we were only a block away from her school, moments after the end-of-day bell. Seattle’s famous sunlight participated, making everything sing. Some of [...]

The Whitakers Family Portrait

As we pulled into Nathan’s school parking lot on a Saturday a few weeks ago the fog was hanging so low. Not your typical weather forecast for a family portrait + senior portrait. It ended up being perfect. We took a walk through the woods and found ourselves near a warehouse at the back of [...]

I am so impressed with this family. These guys woke up and presented themselves at 8:00am on the Saturday of their family’s big wedding weekend. And that includes the bride and groom who had bachelor and bachelorette commitments the night before. Despite the early start, they were so much fun to play with. I especially [...]
