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.

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.

Central Valley Newborn Portraits

Central Valley Newborn Portraits | Edward Mendes Photography

After a bit of a long wait this cute lil’ guy, Bryston, finally decided to said “Hello” to the world on July 6th 2016.  A few days later Mom and Dad brought him by the studio for his newborn portraits.  I try to create what I call a “signature” image for all of my newborns; something that is unique to each session and incorporates elements that helps to tell their story as a family. Bryston’s dad was an All-American basketball player and  played professionally overseas before coming back home to coach and develop at the youth level. Basketball is a large part of their lives so we decided to incorporate it into their “signature” image.  I think it turned out beautifully and I can’t wait to see it displayed in their home.  Leslie and Brice are wonderful and they have a handsome and sweet little dude in Bryston.  I’m honored to have had the opportunity to create his newborn portraits and can’t wait to see him grow up.  Here are a few images from the session.

Edward Mendes Modesto Wedding Photographer | Central Valley Wedding Photographer

To see the way Katie and Charles look at one another is to know they are meant to be.  The love they share is easily seen in not only their smiles but in the way they interact with each other.  Katie and Charles were married surrounded by friends and family in an intimate ceremony at a private park in Modesto, California.  It was an honor to have the opportunity to create the images of their wedding day and met the people that mean the most to them.  Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Insco!

Ashleigh + Cody | Vintage Gardens Modesto Wedding

Central Valley Wedding Photographer Modesto Wedding

 

Cody and Ashleigh are such an amazing and fun couple! As you look through their photos you can not help but see that they both have great friends and truly loving families! It was truly a spectacular day for these two! Seeing Cody and Ashleigh together, it’s clear that they belong together, a sentiment, I think, that is reinforced by the story of how they meet which Cody told during the reception.  Cody had gone into a local coffee shop where he meet Ashleigh who was working there, he was dating someone else at the time.  The next day he wasn’t.   A tale of love at first sight.  Congratulations, Cody and Ashleigh! Julie and the rest of the team at Vintage Gardens certainly made this day one to remember and a great location for a Modesto wedding!
