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. : ) 



All this rain and gloomy weather is reminding me of Izaac's senior photo session.I have known Izaac since his 7th grade days, and can't believe he is going to be graduating South Fork High School soon! We shot his session over the Christmas Holiday, and you never know what kind of weather you are going to get in Humboldt County in December. We were originally going to do it in the Redwoods, along the Avenue of the Giants,  but since it was so dark, we did a last minute change up and I am really glad we did. It was a darker day, and the fog is all real, which made for some more dramatic photos. Izaac's mom assisted me with the use of off camera flash which helped set the mood. I was totally in a Riverdale phase when shooting these pictures and Izaac totally reminded me of Jughead, the calm and cool character from the popular TV show. My newest obsession is Pretty Little Liars, so I am going to jump off and enjoy season three with this storm brewing outside!  


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.
