Humboldt County Senior River Session

One of my favorite ways to spend my spring and summer evenings is shooting river sessions. These can be challenging as the light can be harsh in some spots, and it limits poses, and direction, but a good challenge is always nice.

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 […]

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.

Vianney’s Southern Sunny Humboldt Senior Session

I was so excited When Cassidy asked me to take Codys senior portraits. He was a student of mine when I was teaching PE at South Fork High School. He was always very respectful and polite, and was also an awesome three sport athlete. I love being able to reconnect with students and see where […]

I have always loved going to the river ever since I was a kid. There is just something so relaxing about laying in the sand until you get hot and then jumping in to cool off. Listening to the sounds of kids happily shouting and laughing, and the sound of the birds chirping,and water splashing. […]

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 […]
