Family session of Maria and Darrin

Every Year since the first child of theirs I have been doing their family photos. There is nothing more celebrating and endearing than seeing your past wedding clients having you take part in their lives when shooting their families. I certainly hope that I get to take their picture this year again. They are an adorable family.

The Wedding of Robert and Ashley

Robert and Ashley’s wedding was at the beautiful Granite Bay Golf Club. Exquisite rolling hills lavished with Oak Trees a wonderful scene for a fantastic wedding. And so it was. Ashley is in love with everything Disney and she put together in a very simple and grown up way of implementing Disney into her wedding decor. She is also a big fan of Pepsi which was a big hit on her day. This two were balls of energy and I had fun photographing them enjoy the photos!

The Engagement Session Of Jessica and Robert

I had the pleasure of photographing these two at the lovely Heather Farm in Walnut Creek CA. The grounds have this beautiful rose garden and during our session it was in full bloom. It was a warm and sunny summer morning we shot their engagement photos. Usually I love to shoot primarily in the evening but really early in the morning is just as nice lighting wise as it is in the evening. Stay tuned for their wedding pics.

Jasmine’s Maternity Session

I shot Jasmine’s session at one of my favorite locations it was in Mantalvo Art center in Saratoga Springs. Please enjoy them!

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.
