Korlee contacted me back in September to take Cody’s senior pics. She and Cody used to live in Humboldt, where I reside. I was Cody’s 6th grade teacher, and Korlee also worked at the school. I remember getting the nicest gift from her at the end of the year. She gave me a gift certificate […]
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 […]
I have been wanting to do a carnival shoot ever since I have started my photography journey and finally made it happen! I met up with my senior reps on the opening day of the carnival. We met at noon which is a tough time to shoot, but I wanted to beat the crowds and […]
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 […]

High school is almost like a full time job really. You arrive by 8 am Monday Friday and spend your day learning and discussing details on new topics and discovering solutions to problems you may or may not have known existed. The demands of the classroom can be overwhelming at times with daily in class […]
As a professional photographer, I often get asked for advice on how to feel confident and comfortable in front of a camera. This has also been something I have struggled with in the past and has taken me awhile to feel happy with someone taking photos of me. I mean, we all agree its awkward […]
The time is here, the official countdown. Six months out, from a soon to be empty nest. Your first thought and temptation is to spend the year in a sad state of mind, thinking about all of the lasts you will be experiencing. The last first day of school, the last varsity game, the last […]
I just spent the last couple of weeks working on my 2020 senior magazine. I have loved going through the images and seeing what I have accomplished this past year, as well as what I am planning for next year. I am currently accepting applications for 2020 senior Spokesmodels. Senior spokesmodels help represent Parkys Pics […]
