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.

Turlock Maternity Portraits

Turlock Maternity Portraits

I had the awesome chance to photograph Erica and Candido’s maternity session recently at the always beautiful (even in the rain), Pageo Lavender Farm in Turlock, California. Erica and Candido are a very special couple and I’ve had the pleasure of creating images for them through all of their special moments the last number of years, from senior pictures to their wedding and now the soon-to-be of their little one, Regina. I can’t wait to meet her as she is sure to be as wonderful as her parents and extended family. For the maternity session we were greeted with a bit of weather, gray clouds and overall damp conditions as it’s been a very wet winter here in California. We made the most of it however, as Pageo Lavender Farm has many wonderful places to work. Below are a few of the images from our maternity session and the highlight slideshow. I hope you enjoy them.

Cute Baby Portraits

Cute baby portraits hunting

Benjamin is one of the cutest little dudes you’ll ever meet, and certainly one of the happiest, a smile was on his face almost the entire session. He had recently turned 8 months and his dad and aunt brought him by for portraits to capture the love and smiles that is Ben. As with all my children and newborn portraits I like to create a signature image that is particularly special to the family in some way and will hang with joy in the home. For Benjamin we decided to do something with a hunting theme, not the easiest theme for a little one, but I knew we could do something cute and age appropriate. Take some hunting lodge decor, a cute lumberjack style outfit, put it all on one of my hand made backgrounds, include an adorable little guy, and here’s what I came up with.

Hope you enjoy the slideshow and a few of the images from our cute baby portraits session.

Turlock Country Club Wedding

Wedding couple kissing at CSU Stanislaus

Lauren and Josh tied the knot recently in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by friends and family at Sacred Heart Parish in Turlock, CA. Josh and Lauren are so cute together and very much in love, what a happy day. After the ceremony we headed to the always wonderful Turlock Country Club for the reception.  Lauren and Josh met while attending California State University, Stanislaus in Turlock so the school holds a special place in their hearts. Because of this close association with their relationship and the college we decided to do their formal pictures there too, a wonderful choice.

It was an honor being able to spend the day with Lauren and Josh, meet their great friends and family and have the opportunity to create the images of their beautiful wedding day. Now, on to designing the wedding album.

Here are a few of the images from their wedding day along with the highlight video. Enjoy!

Modesto Newborn Portraits

Modesto Newborn Portraits

One of the great joys of my job as a professional portrait and wedding photographer is getting the call, text or email that one of my wedding clients will soon be welcoming a beautiful son or daughter into the world. It’s such a blessing to be able to meet them at only a few days old and create images that will be cherished for a lifetime. Today I had the pleasure of meeting Ricardo Rafael Alcala. What a wonderful little guy!   He is such a happy baby with a perfect temperament which, if you know his parents, is just exactly what you would expect.  We had a wonderful time during the session. I hadn’t seen mom or dad in a little while so it was great catching up.  Even better, they brought a beautiful and really cute knit cap and diaper cover that worked perfectly with the look of some of the images. Loved It! Thank you guys so very much for letting me create the images of your new family!

Here are a few images from little Ricardo’s session, I hope you like them as much as I do…
