Beautiful Kings Mountain Wedding

If you have never traveled the redwood tree lined road of Skyline you are truly missing out.  There are a few magical spots within this majestic forest to say your vows and I think I stumbled upon a new one this summer.  Henrik Ibsen Park in off of Skyline in Kings Mountain (also mapped out nestled into the hills of Redwood City).  Although, I think this may be a rare treat as I’m pretty sure you have to have an in into this majestic Norwegian property…  But on this one summer day, I had my in… and I was so glad I was able to capture this!

Ciara and Will created a fun and magical day .  There day started with a “fake” first look as the best man dressed up in a bridal gown and gave Will a lasting impression.  This really set the flavor and the fun for the rest of the day.  Although, a fun DIY wedding, the venue was elegant and glowing decorated with twinkly lights, and the gorgeous flower arrangements from Flora and Fauna!   The sun was shining, the vows were touching and everyone was happy to be apart of such a magical day with a loving couple!

Countryside Family Portraits // Family Portrait Photographer // San Francisco Bay Area // Half Moon Bay, CA

Living in Northern California, Half Moon Bay to be exact, we are fortunate enough to live where the mountains meet the sea. With that said, some might think it's obvious to capture your family portraits by the ocean, as it truly is magical… and I won’t disagree, if that is what describes your family. However, the country offers a natural setting that can really amplify the spirit of your loved ones…. if you are still torn, we can even find locations where the mountains meet the sea, such as the bluff tops of Montara… or just play in the tall grasses of the country, or find locations like Cowell State Beach that have country like roads that look like they go on for miles.

If you are a more rustic person, and/or just want something different, let me capture your next family portrait utilizing some of our amazing mountain sides.

Its very rare (so rare, I can’t even think of an actual time) that I have walked away from a photo shoot and not feel satisfied after capturing children and their innocence. For me, in some ways they are easier than adults because they have nothing to hide if approached right. The trick is finding that sweet spot, that spot that will open up to a giggle, or a tender moment that can only be seen usually for a split second.

I remember photographing my own kids before they “loved” the camera… that was a bit tricky, especially for my oldest, who getting to smile was like pulling teeth… and after each shoot I would be left sweating as if I just ran a marathon, but I walked away with my reward… the reward of capturing that golden stage before the next growth occurs. Don’t miss out on this time, its too precious!Portraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon BayPortraits by Shanti DuPrez / Children Portraits / Photographing Children / Half Moon Bay

Senior Portraits // Half Moon Bay and San Francisco Bay Area

This is such a tender time in one’s journey into the next chapter of their lives. No longer a child, yet not quite an adult… however, I will say this, there is no other portrait that will resurface in your lifetime as that of your senior portrait. Your parents will showcase it within their homes, your friends may keep it as a keepsake, your yearbook will memoralize this look for generations to come…. Take control on how you want it to look and let me help you capture this the way you’d like it to be shown.

Think about what you love, nature, ocean, sports, hobbies, and bring that into the look that you would like to capture for the image that tells your story thus far in your life.

Capture these within the months of January and February and receive 20% off any package.
