Learned an important lesson in being flexible and working with what you’ve got during this particular shoot. We had originally set out to a location outside of Sacramento but got stuck in major traffic. So being the cool, calm and collected (and not at all road-ragey) person that I am, I took the nearest exit and said FORGET IT…or something along those line. Ended up driving around and improvising the shoot, looking desperately for good lighting and a worthy backdrop. But luck was on our side after all and again the spring blooms came to the rescue. Shout out to my girl Bogdana for just going with the flow and being stunning no matter what the setting.
It has been very difficult to catch a few moments of clear weather to shoot but luckily I caught a break! The American river may be flooded but the trails are beautiful and bursting at the seams with green lush grass. Shoutout to my lovely Bogdana for braving the mud and mosquitos for me, she looked ethereal in the forest setting. 🌿
I would say at least 50% of my work is the result of my random meandering around the towns I visit. There’s something magical about stumbling across a beautiful sight and capturing it. Here, I found this beautiful Victorian home while taking a walk downtown and the result was great. (Hope the home owners don’t mind me loitering in their front yard hehe.) I like to think photography is a bit of metaphor for life, you never know what beautiful things life will bring to you.
My out of town friends know better than anyone that I am one proud Sacramento resident. I will tell anyone who will listen about the great restaurants and bars or its proximity to great daycation destinations like Tahoe and San Francisco. I won’t lie, it has not always been like this but with time and growing I have come to treasure this place as my second home. You will often see pictures of sights around town and I hope that if you have not already, you will consider visiting. #VisitSacramento
