Youngest first! These school portraits provide snapshots in time when my three daughters dove into life. The originals were destroyed when our home burned down in 2010, so these are digitalized copies from those halcyon days before the fire.
All photos are from the Seattle Public Schools in the northern half of Seattle, Washington. Enjoy.
Talia Katayama (now Bass), my beautiful, talented, and sensitive stepdaughter since before her birth. I helped deliver her at home on the floor and helped raised her up, too.
Kate Bass, my beautiful, wild, and athletic daughter, adopted in Washington State 6 weeks after her birth in Virginia.
Morgan Bass, my beautiful, zany, and creative daughter and first child. I helped deliver her at home in an urban apartment home birth.
Photos purchased from the professional photographers contracted with by Seattle Public Schools, scanned and digitalized and copied here.
