This charismatic graduate was a delight to work with! It had been raining all week before her session, but the day arrived, and the sun made an appearance! Crow Canyon Gardens is one of my favorite locations for a photo session. There’s always something in bloom, and it’s a gorgeous location any time of year. The perfect place to highlight a fun senior and all her different looks!
Working with this Athenian School graduate was such a blast! She was super upbeat as we explored the beautiful campus. As a former Athenian School art teacher, it’s one of my favorite backdrops for senior portraits and holds a special place in my heart. It’s gorgeous any time of year, but the spring brings out lush green colors and a variety of flowers adding to the drama of the scenery. It was the perfect backdrop for this senior’s portrait session.
It was such a delight photographing this loving family. I was so excited to meet little Adeleine, just 6 months old, and welcome her to the family. It was a special time because Grandma and Grandpa were visiting from New York. The boys are so caring with their younger sister, and you can just feel the affection between the whole family. It was a gorgeous day at Crow Canyon Gardens, the perfect setting for a family photo shoot.

It was so much fun collaborating with Camden in downtown Oakland. We discovered great backdrops as we walked through the neighborhood: colorful murals, brick walls, window displays, fences, metal surfaces, fun seating areas, stairs, even a few flowers. And what better way to end a senior session than Blue Bottle Coffee?

This confident high school senior was a blast to work with. She is a natural in front of the camera, and she was at ease exploring the neighborhood for our urban senior session. Given the way she can strut on the sidewalk, I see a potential future on the catwalk for this stylish and bold model!

I believe in life-long learning, and I was so inspired by my time at Conference 12 in Denver, Colorado this past week! With 12 speakers and only 50 attendees, this was an incredible opportunity to focus on my senior portrait business with like-minded people. These photos were taken at Red Rock Park, Colorado. The amazing True Moua of True Creative Portraits planned and styled this Game of Thrones inspired session. The models are high school seniors, and they did an incredible job encompassing the theme.

This senior model was so much fun to work with! She is truly a natural in front of the camera, and I see a future on the catwalk for this charismatic girl. Our photo session took place in the afternoon peering into the windows of our downtown location. I am a big fan of reflections, and the store windows were the perfect compliment to this infectious senior's smile!

If you are planning a trip during your senior year and want to incorporate senior photos, contact me to plan out your dream session. The possibilities are endless......
This 2018 graduate was a delight to work with. On a gray Fall afternoon, we explored the hills for our senior photo session. There were clouds in the sky and the rain threatened, but this girl was so good natured, she managed to stay positive and show her true smile throughout! And what a gorgeous dress for an outdoor shoot in the foothills.

After moving to Oakland, I've been on the lookout for fun locations for photo sessions. I've been amazed at how quiet and peaceful Lake Merritt Gardens have been...even on a weekend! With a variety of plant life, colors and textures year-round, it is an ideal spot. This family of three was excited to explore the gardens together on a sunny summer day. Their daughter is just full of life and personality, making our photo session a blast!
