Kelsi|Senior Pictures in the Redwoods|Parky's Pics

Meet Kelsi! She is a Parky’s Pics Senior Rep from Fortuna High. I met Kelsi, her sister and her mother at a beautiful location in the Redwoods. She was a little nervous at first, as everyone always is, but she quickly picked up the posing and absolutely nailed her session. She was a natural in front of the camera and we got some amazing shots! Not only is she beautiful (does she not look like Sheryl Blossom from Riverdale (I love that show!) but she is super sweet.  I am so excited about future shoots with her as one of my senior reps!

Bailey|Fortuna High|Senior Session

I have known Bailey since she was a baby. She attends Fortuna High where she plays softball.  I took her sister Bekah’s senior photos last year, so I am ecstatic to have her on board as a Senior Rep this year. Bailey, Bekah and two  of her friends traveled down to the Community Park on a warm Friday afternoon. There was no shortage of laughter as we explored the park. What I love about this location is that no two senior sessions look alike because there are so many options. We then traveled to a second location where we navigated a small area and got some great shots. I am so excited to have Bailey on board as a Senior Rep!

Alyssa|Eureka High School|Senior Session

If you follow me on social media, you may recognize Alyssa as being one of my Senior Reps. She attends Eureka High and loves to play softball. She traveled down to Benbow on a windy, warm summer day. We got some great shots around the Benbow Inn and then we ventured over to The Community and Tooby Park and made the best of the wind and finished up down at the river. It was a fun shoot, and here are the results! : )

 

Senior Sportraits|Parky's Pics Photography|Humboldt County

I LOVE sports! I fell in love with basketball at the age of 12 when I first picked up a ball.  I remember my parents telling me that if I wanted to go to college, I would have to earn a scholarship because they couldn't afford to pay for it.  That lit a fire in me, and I enjoyed learning that the more work I put into the sport, the better I became. From that moment on, you would rarely see me without a basketball in my hand. I would get my homework done at school so that I would have more hours to practice after school. That dedication did eventually earn me a full ride scholarship and later an induction into the hall of fame. I have so many great memories from those years, but no physical images to show for it. 

My one regret?? I had not one really great picture of those memories. I lived and breathed basketball for 10 plus years. It was a part of my soul, and I have zero great images to show for it. It's just a story I tell my kids. I would love to have something tangible to show them. Look at what mommy used to do. 

Does your son or daughter (or you?) love sports? Do you want memorable,  creative, dramatically lit images that can be displayed on a beautiful metal print or canvas, or in an album as a keepsake for years to come? You have worked this hard and come this far, let's give you something to show for it. I would love to help make that happen for you. This last year we captured softball, baseball, tennis football, soccer, rodeo in a barn, car racing on a mountain top, and motorcycling in the Redwoods. Let's create something unique and memorable that will last a lifetime!  I feel my most comfortable on an athletic field, with a camera in my hand. If you want a Senior Sportrait Session for your son or daughter, (or yourself) contact me today. Let's make it happen!
