Beach Time

Cabo San Lucas is known for the stretches of coastline and beaches, like Playa El Medano and Playa del Amor. Both of these beaches are perfect for a little downtime in between the scheduled shoots that you will experience on your destination session. There are food carts, restaurants, and vendors that you can also enjoy while you dig your feet in the sand and enjoy the ocean. If you are lucky enough and the tides are in your favor you might even be able to walk under El Arco, a natural rock archway in the seacliffs.

Corazon Cabo Resort & Spa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

One of the reasons that we love our international destination sessions, like Cabo, is that it gives our seniors the opportunity to experience a new culture and way of life as well as an epic location! When we travel to Cabo for our Senior Destination Session we stay at the Corazon Cabo Resort & Spa. We love the luxurious feel of the beachfront property and the many amenities that it offers. You can go from the infinity pool to the roof-top, then down to the private beach, before having dinner in one of three on-site restaurants. The Corazon has everything you could need.

Family Destination Portraits

Another reason we love our international destination sessions, like Cabo San Lucas Mexico, is that it gives our seniors and their parents a vacation to celebrate and commemorate this final year of high school! So often we hear from the parents of our seniors, how quickly this last year flys by. Soon your senior will be headed off to the next phase of their lives. Now is the time to create life-long memories as a family. We love it when one or both parents of our senior girls join us at the destination session. We make sure to capture a few family images while we are out shooting to document this milestone and your family legacy!

Todos Santos / Hotel California

A well-known tourist spot in Cabo that makes a tropical backdrop for amazing senior portraits is the Hotel California in Todos Santos. This iconic destination is in the sub-tropical oasis of what is called the Baja California Sur. Shooting through the palms and enjoying the sites of this area makes for a great afternoon of traveling and pictures.

Senior Desitnation Portraits

Senior destination portraits are the main reason we are here right! Boise, Idaho has amazing locations for senior photos that we use and love, but if you are looking for something that is different a senior destination portrait session is perfect for you! From the vibrant colors of street markets downtown to the calm blues and creams of the coastline you will have a variety of images to choose from at your ordering appointment once we are back state-side.
