Kobina’s Senior Session

I enjoyed photographing this young man’s senior session.  He is so polite and sweet.  He is a graduating 2018 Liberty High School Student from Brentwood CA.  This young man will go far.  I have been wanting to do more senior and studio photos for practice but also if there is bad weather either really hot or raining I now can have access to a studio environment.

Stylized Shoot

So for a long time I wanted to to do a stylized shoot.  Let me tell you it is so hard to get vendors involved.  I have totally new respect for wedding coordinators or event planners.  Its awesome to come up with an idea but to get everyone involved is another story.  Anyhow, I finally got to make one happen.  It took place in Knights Ferry one of my fav’s to shoot.  It is rustic, garden like and near water.  So it has multiple locations to work with.  So I want to finally thank a few people, The florist and the person who let us use their dining sets and silverware and table settings: Beyone The Terrace, Hair: Kaylee DeJesus and Maria Yiannakou at Blush Salon, they were also the models, JJames Bridal for the use of the wedding dresses and Jessica Boland who did the Makeup, stylized by me.  Enjoy the photos!

Headshots of Savannah

I have known this young lady for quit sometime.  I was more than tickled pink to do some head shots for her modeling and acting press cards.  I knew this young lady for sometime would be awesome to do modeling she has the look for it and the camera just loves her face.  These are just head shots we did another set of photos which I will show soon of more of a editorial feel.  So stay tunned for those!

Maternity Session of Angelina

I photographed this gorgeous lady’s wedding last year and was thrilled to find out she was having a baby.  I had the pleasure to photograph her maternity session she looked gorgeous.  These photos were taken during the morning.  I was concerned at first but the outcome came out great.  I had a little flowey action with her dress and was able to freeze that.  This was photographed at the beautiful Round Valley Park in Brentwood CA.

Senior Pictures of Skylar and Zack

I had the great pleasure of photographing the two young twin boys.  They graduated this past June so their senior year in high school photos.  I took some in a studio setting and some outdoors.  Its important to show what kids are into at the current time.  These two are into sports so I had to express that.  Some dramatic light and some just pretty lighting.  Anyway enjoy the photos!!

Deborah and Joseph’s Engagement Session

I had the pleasure of photographing these two at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose.  We went toward the back area of the museum and its such a beautiful garden.  I meet these two at a bridal fair and such personalities they have.  I wish them the best they are getting married pretty soon!
