Galas Barn Wedding

Galas Barn Wedding

Gricelda and Jesus are a wonderful couple with a tremendous group of loving friends and family. I had the pleasure of creating the images of their beautiful wedding day recently, and what a wonderful day it was.  Surrounded by their loved ones Gricelda and Jesus said “I do” at the beautiful St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Modesto, California before heading to Oakdale for their reception at the lovely Galas barn. I’m thrilled to have been a part of their day and I hope that shows in the images. Speaking of which, I hope you enjoy a few of the preview images and debut slideshow.

A few images from the day…

Class of 2018 Senior

Class of 2018 Senior

Class of 2018 senior, David came by the studio a few days ago for his senior portrait session. David’s a busy dude, with school and football practice every day and soccer right around the corner, we decided an indoor session was the way to go for some awesome senior portraits. The session was fun, David a great young man and photographs very well, always a bonus. It was great working with him, chatting and getting to know him a little bit. I wish David all the best the rest of his senior year. Go Huskies!

Here are a few images from David’s senior portrait session. Enjoy.

Hughson High Class of 2018

Hughson High Class of 2018

It’s September which means senior portraits are in full swing. Ethan will be graduating from Hughson high this coming June, class of 2018, and stopped by recently for his senior portraits.  After meeting with Ethan and his mom for a consultation we decided an outdoor session was the way to go and headed out to one of my favorite local spots. We had a lot of fun during the session, Ethan and his family are wonderful, fun, happy and an overall pleasure to work with. To make the session even better we had some wonderful light. You can’t ask for more. Good luck to Ethan on the rest of his senior year and the journey he’s about to begin.

Here are a few images from Ethan’s senior portrait session. I hope you enjoy.

Nazreen Dhaul | Modesto Baby Portraits

A new little bundle came to the studio a few days ago for her newborn portrait session, the lovely Nazreen Dhaul. Both of Nazreen’s parents work in the medical field with her mom having a Ph.D. During our consultation we discussed their “signature” piece of artwork I would design for their home and they mentioned wanting to do something with a medical theme. With Nazreen already born and being two weeks old at the time of the consultation, I worked very quickly to design a warm, and artistic set piece that focused on little Nazreen while celebrating her parent’s passion for healthcare. I think it turned out very well.

We were also blessed to have Nazreen’s grandmother join us for the portrait session. While she didn’t have her image made she worked very hard behind the scenes, making the session a great success.

Nazreen is a beautiful baby girl, very sweet, and I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to create her baby pictures. Below are Nazreen’s highlight slideshow and a sample of images from our portrait session. I hope you enjoy them.

Lily Ann Nelson | Modesto Newborn Pictures

It’s one of my great joys to be able to meet the beautiful babies of my past wedding couples when they come to the studio for newborn pictures. I photographed Cody and Ashleigh’s big day in May of 2016 at Vintage Gardens in Modesto. I was thrilled when Ashleigh told she was expecting and wanted to come by for newborn pictures when Ms. Lily finally arrived. We’d planned the session and the “signature” image I would create for Cody and Ashleigh about a month before Lily was due so I had time to get everything in order. In the end, Lily was 8 days late but completely worth the wait. She is absolutely beautiful and was a total joy to photograph at only four days old, the perfect age. The session was made even more special because we were joined by both sets of grandparents, Mark and Kim and Dwight and Beth. I love to see the happiness a baby brings to a family and Lily certainly has done just that.

The session was fun and as I mentioned Lily was wonderful. Below is a short highlight slideshow from the session and a few images. I hope you enjoy them and congratulations to the new mom and dad, Ashleigh and Cody.

Some images from the session.

Turlock Country Club Wedding

Turlock Country Club Wedding

Nicole and Chris are a very special couple. It doesn’t take much time spent with them to see the respect and love they have for one another. In fact, respect, love and joy seems to shine through everything they do. I had the great pleasure of photographing their wonderful wedding at the beautiful Turlock Country Club recently. Chris and Nicole said their vows outdoors in a lovely ceremony surrounded by friends and family before celebrating the evening away at their awesome reception. It was a joy and honor to create the images of their wedding day and share in their happiness while in the company of the people that mean the most to them. Congratulations, Nicole and Chris!

Here is the highlight slideshow from Chris and Nicole’s wedding day.

Turlock Senior Portraits

Turlock Senior Portraits

 

I’m very fortune to work with wonderful families and have the opportunity to photograph each member when it’s time for their senior portraits. This is the case with the Jurevich family, I photographed Brandon a few years ago and recently his sister Ashlee stopped by for her senior portrait session as well. We headed out to one of my favorite local outdoor portrait locations for the session and was greeted by not only wonderful weather but some amazing wildflowers too. Ashlee was wonderful to photograph and work with, we had a great time during the session and came away with some beautiful images. Perfect wall portraits for mom and dad’s home and office. Ashlee be graduating from Turlock high school soon and will be on to big things in her future.

Here are a few images from Ashlee’s senior picture session. I hope you enjoy them.

Knights Ferry Portraits

Knights Ferry Portraits

Adriana will be celebrating her quinceanera at the end of May with an awesome party but stopped by a few days ago for her pre-quinceanera portrait session in Knights Ferry. While Knights Ferry portraits are usually known for their brown and tan tones due to the usually dry grass there are a few weeks each spring when the area is covered in green and littered with beautiful wildflowers. We hit it perfectly, the wild lupine lighting up with it’s deep purple color against the green grass was stunning.

The session was a lot of fun, Adriana was great to work with and we came away with a lot of stunning images; perfect wall art for Mom and Dad’s home to celebrate Adriana’s milestone. I’ve included a few images from the session. I hope you enjoy them.

State Theater Engagement Portraits

State Theater Engagement Portraits

Cameron asked Kody to marry him outside the historic State theater in Modesto, California last December after a seasonal showing of “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  Their wonderful engagement story created a special place in their hearts for the theater and sets the scene for their engagement portraits. The State Theater was kind enough to put Kody and Cameron’s name in lights for our state theater engagement portraits session, which made the night extra special. The session was fun, minus me almost getting hit by a car or two while standing in the street to make the images. Congratulations to the happy couple and I can’t wait for their wedding in December.

Here are a few images from the session, hope you enjoy.
