Coastal Engagement Session in the Marin Headlands + Rodeo Beach

Updated: May 26

Well folks,


The universe has yet again pleaded for me to write a blog. Where usually I'd procrastinate, I'm now cooped up in my house (15 days to be exact), and the SEO gods have called. I'm not really sure how to summarize the current state of the world, but it has led me to complete many burdening tasks, and this one is last on my list. Again, I don't think I'm all that talented in the realm of blogging, but whatever. LET'S DO THIS CAUSE I'M BORED AS HELL.


So let me take you all back a couple weeks ago...ah.. what a serene, blissful time. A time where only my president could traumatize me and not a virus named after a Mexican beer. A lovely SF based model Brenna, and her rad partner & poet, Jamey and I kicked off our shoot in the Marin Headlands. They had never been before, so I kind of made it a priority to take them to as many beautiful spots as possible.



We did a little hike up to some old military bunkers- a slowly disintegrating concrete jungle of graffiti and disposed 40's overlooking the Point Bonita Lighthouse. Lemme tell you a little about myself- I LIVE for these kinds of places. To me, it holds so much history - so many memories. Not just from when it was all built

and lived in, but the graffiti, the plants growing around it all, even the trash. It all holds a story to me. We were even lucky enough to be graced by the rattling and pssst sounds of a spray can being used on the staircase above us while we were shooting..



So yea, prettyaaa, pretty, pretty good....ah whatever I'll just put another GIF here 'cause it won't make sense unless I do.




We continued on our lil' adventure and hiked to another bunker. I always ask my couples if they want to play their music (and pray they say yes because I never know if they're going to actually like my music). They didn't hesitate and took over. In between it all they started dancing and the lightbulb went off in my head to ask them if I could take pictures of them dancing. To my surprise, they were like "HELL YES" and then literally had a dance routine perfected and ready to go. Needless to say, I had to pick my jaw up off of the ground 'cause this NEVER happens!





We ended our night at the beach. Jayme being brave enough to carry Brenna on his back in the freezing cold pacific water. We watched the sunset. We talked about life. In conclusion this couple was such great company and I enjoyed every moment with them.
