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.

Luv is the middle name

Birthday

August 5th is my true calendar year. I can’t remember much before that.  And so another year flies and each day more of her individuality and personality comes out and she makes me proud (even when she’s being a creep). Blessed for the past 8 years and I’ll be  taking my time enjoying what’s next. 

Remi Luv, I love you. 

    
   

The Meatball Brothers

Birthday, Sacramento

Happy early Birthday to these little meatballs who will be celebrating their birthday  this weekend!  Let’s see if they try to wear the cake again instead of eating it.   
    
   

Baby on Board

Maternity

Congratulations to Nancy and Eugene who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their baby boy Mariano. The whole family came out for a Sunday afternoon session while we played oldies and hid from the sun at the UCD Arboretum. Initially we did a few warmup shots and slowly worked our way through the trees, but then we ran into this patch of greenery with a single beam of light coming through as if it was staged for us. This ended being my new favorite work!

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
