Gray Whale Cove State Beach

Gray Whale Cove State Beach Birthday

A warrior. A survivor. A champion. All titles I would give to sweet Christina as I learned about her history during our Gray Whale Cove State Beach, Half Moon Bay session. Life has thrown her so many curve balls, and yet she remains such a beautiful light in the world- excitedly celebrating her 30th birthday.

She didn’t give up

Tina has had an incredible few years of ups and downs, and yet she remains so positive and full of joy! She recently lost two of the most important people in her life. Normally this would cause someone to fall into such a deep depression. But not Tina! She pulled herself out of the sorrow and went on to pursue her dream of become a registered nurse. She didn’t give up…even when she truly believed she had to. Even when she herself needed support and care- she was giving so much to those in need. And now, as Tina steps toward this milestone birthday, I know the next decade is going to bring her so much love, happiness, and success. She deserves it!

To Sweet Tina

Tina- thank you so much for allowing me to document this amazing milestone birthday for you. I had such a blast getting to know you better and photographing you at Gray Whale Cove State Beach in Half Moon Bay! Your story inspires me and I’m in awe as to how amazing you are! You are such a natural in front of the camera. You truly made my job easy! I’m so in love with these gorgeous images and hope they fill you with excitement for this amazing year in your life. I can’t wait till our next session!


Client’s review: “When I was looking for the perfect photographer to shoot my 30th birthday, I had no doubts when my eyes laid on Corinna’s work. It was love at first sight. I was hoping she would accommodate me since I couldn’t think of anyone else to do this project. She responded immediately and she was so easy to work with. She was heaven sent. My 30th birthday shoot was all I have ever imagined and way more beautiful than I expected. I had the best time working with her. Her light spirit and cheerful attitude made me feel at ease with her during our shoot, thus helping me to pose with ease. 🙂 She’s early on time, comfortable to work with and very helpful. I guess I wouldn’t want anyone else to take my pictures but her in the future. Now that I’ve found her, I cant let her go. 🙂 Her work is truly beautiful like her and truly magical!”
