My Little Stinker and Me (photographed by my wife)
This little guy climbed almost the whole mountain without carrying - he crashed out on the way down.
My littlest boy and wife :-)

Weekend photos #2 (Sorry about the logo/copyright) - these are from my work cameras.... my youngest boy being his usual self... a sloppy, yet brilliantly funny, mess.
My kid from last week. I guess the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree.
Going through a lot of old photos today from years ago, and I found this one of my oldest boy and sexy-as-hell wife from a camping trip. I'm a lucky man!
My cute wife +Galina Leighton making friends in the Florida Everglades. :-)
Going through some old photos, and I found this one of my oldest boy and myself when he was a baby. Little stinker.
I rarely photograph kids, especially as there are so many people better at it than I am, but here is one I took of my youngest son a few years ago....
Last time when the Wee-Man came out to Oregon with me on a nature photography trip.
We sent the birthday boy to school with a bunch of cupcakes. His teachers emailed these to us from school.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! to my oldest son who is 8 years old today!!!!! We're going to have a blast today!!!!
Wee-man lost his two front teefs...
Mrs.+Galina Leighton and my lucky self a short 9 years ago living in Fort Myers, Florida (pre-beard)... Adios, Homeland!
Yesterday was my first day of actually using my camera for work in 2016. When I started out in professional photography I thought I'd be out shooting every day, but that is rarely the case when the emphasis is on sales, marketing and the day-to-day operations of running a company. Yesterday I was up in the mountains getting some landscape shots, as well as concentrating on getting botanical shots (particularly conifers - needles and bark shots), the kind of images that sell really well for various publications that are really focused on particular species, and I took my wife and kids with me. I got this shot as my youngest was hamming it up while my wife was fixing the gloves of my other son in the background. First newly edited shot of 2016! www.leightonphotography.com

The Wee-man loves, loves, LOVES camping! Just found this on one of my work cameras in between wildlife/landscape stuff. He's already picking up on his camp responsibilities. He gathers most of the kindling and lichen firestarter, adds wood to the fire and makes sure we leave the area the way we found it when we move on to the next adventure!

My youngest son Owen yesterday "fishing for" (with) worms on Lake Washington!
Happy Birthday to my wonderful, sexy, witty wife +Galina Leighton of very nearly 10 years! Hope you get lucky tonight! :-D
People often ask me: What's the best thing about being a father? I'll answer with this photo - because I can't do this to my friends.
