A Fairytale Senior Session

Graduation is upon us.

Parties are being planned, announcements made, gifts bought, and...



I've been having fun prepping, planning and shooting!

When I asked this senior where she wanted to take her pictures, she had no ideas.  So, off to google I went.  Beautiful places to shoot in East Bay.  I scoured image after image of all that this beautiful place has to offer.  Then, I narrowed it down to two:

*an old washed up ship

*a garden of redwoods 

When I sent her my ideas, I sat back, hoping she picked number one patiently waiting to see which of these two amazing options she would choose.

Number 2.

Ugh.  The trees looked pretty and all, but, A SHIP!!!  Come on!

Alas, it's her senior portraits, so we packed up and headed out.  As soon as we stepped foot on the grounds of this beautiful park, I knew she was right.  


Tranquil, calming, and gorgeous in every way.

There was even the remnants of what looked like an old castle tower near the parking lot--- SERIOUSLY?!?!  Prom dresses like hers were MADE for old castle towers.

As we strolled around talking, taking pictures and laughing, I found myself in awe.  The beauty was breathtaking.

Well, don't take my word for it, see for yourself!!

I hope you enjoyed your trip through this beautiful Senior Session!

Wasn't it magical?  

What would you have chosen: ship or fairytale garden?

Until we meet again,
