About CJ Wilkes Photography

Capturing Your Dance In The Rain is such a thrill and joy to me. Being able to look back on those special times through beautiful artistic imagery makes it a worthwhile challenge.
Learning to Dance in the Rain has been very easy for me. I am drawn to Water & Life! The exciting part for me is to teach you to enjoy your moment in the dance as I capture it from behind my camera.
Looking forward to Capturing Your Dance In The Rain

Marya ~ Highschool Senior Photo Session

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

It has been such a long long time since I have posted any updates. I hope to get here and add all the work I have been doing. What a better way to start than by giving a sneak peak to the very latest shoot!? On top of that we have a video to share of the shoot courtesy of her Aunt Josephine. Huge Thank you!   This session was done on a Quinault Nation Beach. We were able to do it here since Marya’s father is Quinault and was there with us the entire time. Marya’s family is one of the sweetest families ever. It was such a pleasure being with them and taking Marya’s pictures. So here is the video and I will add just a few images that are ready to be shared. Enjoy!

Kaitlyn Martin ~ Singer/Songwriter ~ High School Senior

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

This uber talented girl was such a great sport! Let me first tell you about her. She is a singer/songwriter. She has a song already recorded and available to purchase with a video as well on youtube.  The song is “Hey You”.  Here is the link to the video .  If you decide you want to purchase the song you can do so here at iTunes .  She has a fan page on facebook for those of you who would like to follow her progress.  You can visit her Facebook Page HERE .

Kaitlyn graduated from High School this year.  She is the winner of Terrace Idol 2012.  She performs all over Seattle including at events such as The Police Explorer’s Talent Show, Art festivals, and Farmer markets ~ Drawing some of the largest crowds the events managers have seen in the years they have held their events.

Being Kaitlyn’s photographer has been so fun for me, not only because of the shoot – but my children have become a HUGE fan of hers, telling me that she is their new favorite music artist, that Selina Gomez is now their number 2 LOL. It is very “COOL” for them to meet and know a recorded musician. Not only that – Kaitlyn’s parents are some amazing people!  Active with all of their 4 children – spending time with them doing family adventures. They are genuinely good people who I enjoy knowing.

So for our Photoshoot we hit 2 main locations. The first being Seattle. There is a specific alley that I love for its character. Then we went on to Fort Casey on Widbey Island. It is also another favorite place for me to shoot. I love the versatility of the park. From barracks to beaches to light houses. The place offers to much – and again the personality. Simply could not have asked for a better location.  On the way to Fort Casey we also made a super quick stop to a mini field that most people do not know about. It is a place I had stumbled across with my own family. Usually containing tall grasses for fun shoots, this time it sported a field of purple thistles. It was a perfect match for the outfit she had chosen, unbeknownst to us.  So here is her photo session(s).

Kaitlyn Martin ~ Definitely a name you do not want to forget. Check out her work. This girl can’t help but make you smile, from her images to her music!  Thanks so much Kaitlyn for spending the day with me. It was a full day but as everyone can see – a very successful shoot! Looking forward to hearing more of your amazing songs too!
