senior portraits porch swing


It is the last day of 2017. Wow. What a year. It flew by soooooo fast. I was going through some 2017 photo shoots today and was feeling overwhelmed with how blessed I have been with such amazing clients this year. Some I have know for a while, some were new. There were more shoots than were shown here, but they are all amazing, and the people in them have made my life so much better. New friendships and relationships were formed, and I look forward to continuing to following you on your life journeys.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to capture these important milestones in your lives. I am forever grateful. 




Levi Kirk|Senior Session|Southern Humboldt|RanchShoot

I have known Levi since he was in 7th grade and one of my students. I taught him again in High School PE. One of the things I remember is that he always had cowboy boots on. After spending the morning with him on his family's Southern Humboldt ranch, now I see why. : ) This boy has grown up on the ranch, hauling hay, feeding cows, and apple picking, and much more. He is also humble and kind like just like the Tim McGraw song lyrics. He is also a force to be reckoned with on both the football field as well as the wrestling mat. 


Meet Emily. A Ferndale High student who is also one of Parky's Pics 2018 Senior Reps. She plays basketball and also competes in Rodeo. We were blessed with a gorgeous location and great weather for her senior portraits. Emily and her mom traveled to Southern Humboldt where we shot at one of their family friends houses. We started bright and early which is my favorite time to shoot. Emily's outfit choices were perfect for the location. We ended the session in the field with this cowgirl and her horses. It was an amazing morning! I can't wait for our future shoots!
