I had the pleasure of shooting Allison’s senior portraits a couple weekends ago at Lake Natoma with horses, Julie and Nash. Allison is graduating this spring from UC Davis with a degree in Communications. Her session took place at Shadow Glen Riding Stables where she currently teaches horseback riding, guides trail rides, and trains the new horses. She has been riding since she was eight, but over the last four years has become more involved in her passion, so it was only fitting for her to take her senior portraits with her beloved horses.

HOW TO GET THERE: There are two ways to get to Lake Clementine. One option is to park right next to the dam (parking is limited, $10). We took the other option. We parked alongside the road on El Dorado St. The main parking is on Old Foresthill Road which is on one side of the bridge in Auburn, here you have to pay $10. But if you drive across the bridge (turn right onto CA-193) you are in El Dorado County, and you don’t have to pay. It is an additional five minute walk to the trail head. The trail head just past the ranger booth, over the bridge at a gate.
I had the opportunity to second shoot this beautiful fall vineyard wedding tucked away on the central coast of California. The wedding was hosted at Hammer Sky Vineyards in Paso Robles.
