Give me all the fierce, intelligent women, all the fog, and all the fun on the bluffs of the Northern California Coast. This was a session where I was able to let a beautiful soul and nature take full creative control. Claire made me feel like I didn’t do anything at all. She’s a natural, she’s kind, she’s strong. The deep fog we get on the coast in the summer here has a mood of it’s own. Here at the Point Arena Lighthouse and close by at Bowling Ball Beach (appropriately named at low tide), we were really hoping for some sunshine, but I am so happy the fog stayed for us! Funny thing here, was as soon as we started driving south, just a few minutes, the fog was in the past and we saw the moonlit waves crashing below us and the stars giving us a beautiful drive home.
Being able to spend time with other creatives renews my passion for photography. People trusting me with their moments will always keep me going. It’s not just an art, it’s a release. It’s my therapy. It joys me to hear people love over their images. The experience is so much fun, from planning, playing during sessions, to gawking over memories that will never fade. So people, let’s keep that fire burning. Keep wanting to document all your days, the good and not-so-good, it’s something I wish I had started earlier in life and something that I’m trying to catch up on. More importantly it’s what I’m doing now and that will never change. It may come in waves like the ocean, but it’s my outlet that will forever be with me. Blogging is just another one of those outlets when I have the time, but I do keep more up to date photos on my Instagram if you want to follow there.
