The magic of redwoods

California’s North Coast provides the only such environment in the world for redwoods and I feel so lucky to live and work amongst them. A combination of longitude, climate, and elevation limits the redwoods’ range to a few hundred coastal miles. The cool, moist air created by the Pacific Ocean keeps the trees continually damp, even during summer droughts.

I am constantly looking up in awe. They are so huge and beautiful – it’s very humbling to be walking in a forest of redwoods that have a lifespan of 500-700 years! I do many of my photo shoots in the forest – all of that texture, light coming through the trees and giant trunks make for the loveliest backdrop.

If you come to Santa Cruz, I will take you for a walk in the forest.

Loving life,



  1. Ooohh, that second image is just amazing! And I love how well you captured our tiny pov. Beautiful post!

  2. My husband and drove up the coast from San Francisco two summers ago, and ended our trip with hikes in the northern redwoods. It was a humbling and awe-inspiring experience. Your images capture their magic and majesty. Xo
