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.

Almond Blossom Portraits

Almond Blooms Portraits

Almond blossom portraits are some of my favorite to do, the blossom themselves are beautiful and because we have 20 acres of almonds we don’t have to travel far for the session, winner! Karissa came by for her senior pictures recently and wanted, you guessed it, almond blossom portraits so we headed out to the trees and went to work. The day was perfect, the sun was warm and the blooms were popping nicely. Karissa is involved with FFA, something near and dear to my heart, and while she didn’t have her pig yet when we did the session (bummer) she did have her jacket,  FFA friend and very large family dog to represent during the session. It was a fun afternoon and the images look great. Here area  few samples from the session. Hope you enjoy.

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!
