Rudy Mendoza Class of 2017 

Graduation, Sacramento, Woodland

We couldn’t have picked a better day to take photos! I’ve been wanting to shoot here for some time and love that it’s so close to home. 

Rudy was a natural in front of the camera even with the occasional distraction of weirdos parousing around the bridge while we shot what quickly turned into my new favorite work. 

Congrats to the Rudy and the Mendoza family. We’re all excited for Rudy walk across the stage and be a graduate of Christian Brothers Class of 2017. 


PHS Class of 2016

Graduation, Woodland

Taking photos, I have the unique opportunity to be with people at exactly the moment where everything changes for them. It’s exciting to hear of all the opportunity knocking at their doors and they get to decide which one to walk through.  Hats off to Alina for all her hard work!  She’s heading to UC Santa Cruz in the fall. Here’s to many new adventures!  

Go Banana Slugs!

    

  

Class of 2015

Graduation, Woodland

When then weather changes and it starts getting humid around 12 pm, that means there’s lots of anxious and excited High School Seniors waiting for that last bell to ring in the beginning of June. Lots of big changes are on the horizon for them and though High School affords them the opportunity to open their minds, it really teaches them about how to network. The chapters after high school begin to define who these seniors will be. Initially I would’ve liked a Do-Over for my school days but i realize that its everything that came after that changed everything. Being in the position to take these Senior pictures is so interesting to me. Its really a beginning of a story for each one. I’m thankful for the opportunity to be invited into that for my cousin Danny. Hes got big plans and definitely a leg up on most people because hes starting off with a direction.I was too busy trying to simply Graduate let alone figure out what i was going to do next. (Speaking of which, Thank you Mrs Murphy I know I didn’t deserve to graduate. You definitely did me a solid.)

Congrats in advance to you cousin, and to all the HS seniors!  Danny-1-39

WHS Class of 2015

Graduation, Woodland

We had a very productive week so I thought id share some stills from one of the sessions we had with Carina, a soon to be Woodland High School Graduate, GO WOLVES! As a WHS alumni myself, I was super excited for the opportunity to photograph one of the most pivotal moments in her life so far. Shes got big plans for the future and I’m glad i was there to capture the moment. Initially we started in the Historical area of Woodland but began migrating where ever we saw open spaces with lots of color. Fortunately, Downtown Woodland is filled with them so we only went a couple of blocks. After a while we decided to change things up and took a trip to a special place I’ve been scoping out. These were my favorites from the session. We had lots of really good lighting, and my subject was so easy to work with! Best of luck on your future endeavors Carina!
