There are many beautiful places to shoot between Westport and Albion.
I love finding new spots, and LOVE shooting your session in a place that is meaningful to you,
so never hesitate to suggest someplace!
But... In case you are at a loss for WHERE you'd like your session to take place,
I've put together some examples of places for you to browse through.
Seaside beach offers flat, open stretches of sandy shoreline and usually lots of driftwood.
MacKerricher State Park has quite a bit of variety in one location. We can shoot in the sand, on the rocks, on the boardwalk, and in the trees. Its a beautiful location with a lot to offer.
Ward Avenue is often the most empty beach I shoot at. The sand here is a bit darker than some of the other beach locations. The rocks have some green cover, there is tall beach grass along the cliff edge, and there is also often large pieces of driftwood.
Pudding Creek offers the beautiful lines of the bridge, as well as the option to shoot both in the sand, and above the beach in the trees.
Russian Gulch State Park has a small beach area. This location is best if you are looking for a location with lots of trees, there are some cool wood bridges, and a beautiful view of the arch bridge from the picnic grounds.
Caspar Beach has AMAZING beach grass, and a beautiful sandy stretch. One of my favorite spots, for sure!
The Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens has a HUGE variety of beautiful backdrops. If you are looking for something different than the beach, I definitely recommend considering the gardens. There is an entry fee that would need to be covered by the client.
Spring Ranch is another state property that is a popular photo location. If you like rustic barns and open fields, this location is for you!
The space behind my home drops off into a canyon and a large curtain of trees lines the back of our yard. April through September the sun sets behind the trees and there is an amazingly beautiful golden glow when that happens! There is also a cute little shack next to our yard that serves as a cute, rustic backdrop.
