The world came to stand still this past year. I didn't do a bunch of fantasy photo sessions. I didn't shoot a single wedding! I took a long, long pause. Then, midsummer, Mermaid Ginger known as the Golden Koi Queen was traveling up from LA and we decided to take a break from (COVID) and go to mermaid land instead. We hiked into the forest to a beautiful spot by the Aptos Creek. Wearing the lovely pandemic style, (read masks) - we went to the lagoon. Using a very long lens that I usually reserve for weddings, my mask was able to come off. I put my favorite lighting high up on a cliff above the rocky outcropping to get the perfect beauty angles. She waded into the water and her tail magically appeared as she swam towards the mossy rocks. Enchanting music played in the forest through the modern convenience of a smart phone bluetooth speaker....

A mermaid who can hike with her land legs!
