shelter cove senior portraits

Redwoods&Shelter Cove Family Session

Rylee contacted me through my website. She is from Arizona and visits Shelter Cove in the summers. She originally wanted a beach session in Shelter Cove, but decided to add on a redwood location to her session. I am so glad she did! They are the cutest little family and it was fun doing both locations. : ) 



Happy Saturday! Is anyone else enjoying this beautiful sunshine we are having this week? I know I am! It reminded me of Angelina's shoot towards the end of fall last year. It was a gorgeous day and ended with a little rain.  What a fun shoot this was! We started out at The Community Park in Garberville, and ended across the street at Tooby Park. Angelina was a total natural  in front of the camera and we got some gorgeous light and lingering fall colors. She is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside!


I was so excited when Ron contacted me about shooting Kyra's senior portrait shoot. Tiffany Thomsen of Tiffany's Sports Teams and Photos sent him my way. Tiffany has been so helpful and supportive since I first called her a couple of years ago and said "Help! I am shooting my first team!" Thank you so much Tiffany! Ron explained to me that Kyra was a musician and was going to bring different instruments to the shoot and wanted to shoot at Shelter Cove. They are from the Sacramento area, so it was a long trek up here for them. It was a beautiful day for this session. We started out on the beach in Shelter Cove in the beautiful sunlight. Kyra played her Ukulele, and sang quietly. Such a beautiful voice. I have always wanted to learn the Ukulele....when they put 40 hours in a day, I will do that! : )  We then headed on to The Benbow Inn and finished up with some fun images. I hope you enjoy them!
