A senior skateboard sunset shoot in Shellter Cove

Austin is the son of one of my co-workers at Redway Elementary. We decided to do his senior session over Thanksgiving break when we had more time. We ended up with a gorgeous day, with beautiful sunshine. The only hitch was that a storm was coming the next day, so it was very windy. We […]

senior river session in Benbow

Taryn is one of my 2020 senior reps. Not only is she at the top of her class at Fortuna High School, she is also super sweet. We traveled down to one of my favorite river locations in Southern Humboldt and shot some beautiful shots in the sunshine. The river is always nice and warm […]

Golden light senior session in Humboldt County

Vianney and I met in Southern Humboldt for her senior session. There are a couple of different reasons that I love to shoot in the southern end of Humboldt County. 1. The weather is almost always nicer than it is northern Humboldt. 2. I know of many great locations, all within a small radius of […]

Vianney’s Southern Sunny Humboldt Senior Session

Gabby traveled down to Southern Humboldt for her 8th grade session. We started the morning out at Tooby Park in Garberville. We started her session at 11am. Many natural light  photographers avoid shooting in the middle of the day, but I also use off camera flash and had been wanting to shoot a mid day […]

Gabby sunshine Benbow Inn session.

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 […]

Shelby''s night time session in Scotia

Happy New Year! Most Sunday’s I aim to post a senior blog. This one is a Super Soul Sunday blog. Something that ignites my soul. I had been wanting to do a night time shoot for quite a while. I had been so slammed with shoots during the busy season, that I wanted to reward […]

2017Parky’sPicsYearinReview

I was on the South Fork High School football field taking some action shots when Andrew’s dad approached me about taking Andrew’s senior portraits the following year.  I was super excited, because I love senior sports photos. They are my favorite! Flash ahead a year later where we made that happen. We started out on the […]

Andrew-Senior Session-Ferndale High School Football Field

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. : ) […]
