Heidi - Senior Portraits in Redding, CA

This sweet, beautiful girl is Heidi. She's a senior in the class of 2018 at University Prep School. We met recently at her family ranch just outside of Redding to capture senior portraits for her and her gorgeous horse Shy. 

This session was a lot of fun! I mean really what could be any better than getting to do my favorite type of session in a location like this with a HORSE! It's like the best of everything all wrapped up into one. But to top it all of we also had gorgeous light this evening. Totally a photographer's dream come true!

Little brother John was our chauffeur for the evening and did a great job toting all of us around with all of my camera gear and Heidi's wardrobe. Speaking of wardrobe, didn't she do a GREAT job picking out a variety of flattering pieces?! I didn't even have to help her. This girl has got some style!

Thank you Heidi, Linda and John for a great evening! Best wishes to you Heidi on your future studies and nursing career. Who knows, maybe I'll see you at work one day.

KayLee - Senior Pictures in Redding, CA

Happy Monday everyone! Wait, it's actually Tuesday?! Well my work week is just getting started so today is my "Monday" and we're starting off the week right!

This beautiful young lady, KayLee, is a senior and Shasta High here in Redding. She's a country girl at heart, a little shy, but also super sweet! We met on the Sacramento River Trail to start her session. We walked a little bit and got to know each other. She was a little bit nervous but you'd never know it by her beautiful smile.

This image (below) is probably my favorite of the whole session. Just a quite moment with her and I. There was a little spot of light coming through the trees so I asked KayLee to look up at it. The way it lit her face is just perfect. She looks like a goddess.

After we worked on the River Trail for a while we moved to the another area in Redding, the Turtle Bay walking trails and McConnell botanical gardens. KayLee wore a beautiful cream boho style dress that complimented the surroundings wonderfully.

Every session I try to do something new and creative, just to keep things interesting and unique. This time I brought along a set of fairy lights and used them to give a bit of light to these images. What do you think?
