Jill | Lifestyle Session | Kirkland Photographer | JP Lumansoc Photography

Spent the sunset capturing Jill out in the beautiful city of Kirkland, Washington located a couple minutes across Lake Washington from Seattle, WA. Jill is a mother of a beautiful daughter, wife of a loving husband and is passionate about teaching children with special needs! I look forward to having you in front of my camera again!


Hi there! I'm John-Paul Lumansoc, I am the owner and primary photographer of JP Lumansoc Photography. I love all things photography: cameras, lights, people, and learning more about my craft! If I'm not reading up on the latest photography news, practicing a new lighting technique, or posing myself in the mirror, I'm probably playing music, cooking, or dreaming up the next creative project!

Bothell Photography | Evergreen Church Christmas De-lighting

It takes months of planning and work by dozens of people to make Evergreen Lights happen during Christmas in Bothell, Washington. The result is of course a wonderful family experience that Bothell and the greater Seattle area can enjoy for free! Evergreen Church is full of people who enjoy serving our local community, from serving free hot chocolate and cookies to programing computers and building decorations and lights, Evergreen loves serving you and and creating an experience for the whole family to enjoy. I just wanted to share some photos of the people who make Evergreen Church a place anyone can call home.

Marination Ma Kai | West Seattle Photographer | JP Lumansoc Photography

I love the city of Seattle, Washington. We have pretty much anything we could want here. The culture, people, nature, mountains, science, technology, business, music, movies, arts, food, coffee, drinks, sports... the list never ends. We live in a beautiful area of the world where the grass is green, the skies and ocean are blue, and the weather doesn't get too crazy, perfect for a day of exploring. I spent a day with some friends talking about life over a cup of hot coffee in the morning. The afternoon tasting beer while talking about music and the evolution of the local culture and design. The late afternoon was dedicated to searching for the perfect sunset spot for my next shoot. Unfortunately, one of the downsides of Seattle is that we tend to see more grey skies rather than warm sunsets. But was I was pleasantly ok with missing a sunset as I discovered a tasty Hawaiian-Korean style restaurant called Marination Ma Kai located at 1660 Harbor Avenue SW, Seattle, WA 98126. Having spent several summers there as a child, spam was one of those childhood constants in my life. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, there was never a bad time to have it. Fried, baked, grilled, boiled, seared... the list is endless. The first half being a Spam Macaroni Salad, tasty salad comprised of cooked macaroni and grilled spam tossed in vinegar and oil then combined with mayo and other seasonings, then topped with green onions. I'll just say this, it was a happy childhood throwback thoughtfully created with the perfect blend of mayo, skim milk, vinegar, brown sugar and of course salt and pepper.  I'll let the next photo do the rest of the talking while I enjoy the scenery in West Seattle.

Not the sunset I was looking for, but a gorgeous backdrop nontheless.

I also wanted to do a share a 2016 Seattle Wedding photo throwback with Charlotte & Jon who got married at Hotel 1000 in downtown Seattle, WA. These photographs really capture an amazing side of this fun couple!

It's mid January 2017 and I've found my new favorite place to photograph. Log Boom Park in Kenmore Washington. About 3:30pm the sun starts setting over Seattle, Lake Washington in the background, and of course, the beautiful Pacific Northwest overcast weather.
