Santa Cruz, California

This year I am so excited to be adding destination sessions exclusively for my spokesmodels who want something more.  I'm dreaming big.  For me, it's about the experience.  Photographing you in a beautiful seaside town is full of adventure and possibility!  I have located 4 main areas to shoot within 2 days.  Santa Cruz is located in northern California one hour away from San Francisco. It is full of beautiful lighthouses, fun beaches, a boardwalk, and a colorful seaside town with condos that look like they came right out of Switzerland. 

We will fly into San Jose, CA on June 18.  We will shoot at at least 4 locations over the next two days, so you will need to arrange transportation.  We will plan to shoot in the morning, and again in the evening over the next two days.  Our time in between would be free to explore and have fun.   We will be staying in Santa Cruz, which is about 30 minutes from San Jose.  I will arrange a group rate at a hotel for us.  It is recommended that we stay near one another as hair and makeup will need to be done.  I plan on checking locally with other photographers for a recommendation for a makeup artist or we could do our own.  I know that several of the girls are good at it, and we could pool talent and resources.  I will be more than happy to connect you with other attendees if you want to carpool and/or share rooms.  


To attend the shoot, you must be able to have a parent accompany you during the full duration of the trip.  If you know of another rep that is going, you may travel with their parent after both parties sign a form acknowledging that this is okay.  Each Senior Rep parent that is traveling will only be allowed to take responsibility for one other individual besides their own senior.  

The destination shoot is a wonderful way for mothers and daughters (and/or dads), to spend some bonding time together because all too soon, our babies will be flying away on their own.  

This is not intended to replace your individual senior shoot and would be an add-on to your senior portrait experience!  The shoots will consist of group photos as well as individual photos at all of the locations that we have planned.  I want to cap the group at 4 girls, as I want to have time to shoot each one individually at each location.  


The destination session fee is $350.  I will need three girls to attend in order to go, and a maximum of 4.  The session fee covers my travel expenses.  Each senior that attends will purchase an all inclusive package that includes the digitals, and a magazine full of images from your shoot. That cost is $500.  

This only covers the photography, and does not include travel and accommodations.  I will block out a number of rooms at a group rate at a local hotel for us.  

SIGN UP DEADLINE:  Wed. March 21st.  

Please email me if you want to take advantage of this opportunity!  It will be first come, first served.  I can't wait!
