The following are locations that I have used and am familiar with for photo shots. These locations are by no means the only options. I am open to any and all locations including local parks, beaches (wind permitting) and of course, "home sweet home!"

Lovers Lane / Woodline

This location works for both morning and afternoon shoots. It offers a 1,200-ft. winding line of recycled eucalyptus trunks in the forest, created by Andy Goldsworthy. Gorgeous light peeks through the trees giving this location an almost mystical feel.
