David and Sarah are one of the nicest couples I have ever met.  Their love for each other is abundantly clear.  They continually were happy and smiling and crying with happiness.  I was the second photographer for this wedding.  I am so glad I had the chance to photography this lovely couple on their beautiful day.

Renee's Photo Session - September 2016

I loved doing this session with Renee.  Even though it was the hottest day in the county, our temperatures were over 105.  Renee's Harley is beautiful!  The vineyards gave us a great backdrop. Love the wine country for photographs!

You look stunning Renee!

Alex - Montgomery High School Senior Class 2017

When I received the request to photograph Alex, I was excited. I rarely get the opportunity to photography guys.   It is great photographing guys.  At first they are not sure what to expect.  But once they are racing around with me and my camera, the personality comes flowing out.  Alex was a joy to work with he is so nice.  

I can't wait to see what he accomplishes in his life.  His family should be proud, he is a wonderful young man.

Loving a Summer Day

Eunises and I had the opportunity to shoot at a very nice private residence.  The pool and patio area were awesome to have this session at on a hot summer day.

I think these shots were in incredible of Eunises.  The location suited us both as a photographer and model.

Her sister was kind enough to assist us. Both are marvelous models.

Session with the Beautiful Kiani

I rarely get the chance to go on location and use my studio lighting.  My hair stylist and I got together to do a session at a local residence.  We knew the look we were going for and we needed just the right vanity and room.

Kiani showed up with fantastic hair and fashion look.  She rocked the session.

Just checkout these hot looks by Kiani:

And then someone else wanted to have his picture taken too!

The 60s/70s Photo Session with Denise

I love when a model contacts me about a idea they have for a photography session with me. I can't wait to see their concepts and watch the session come together.   

Denise contacted me about doing a 60/70s theme fashion session. We headed out to downtown and visited some of my favorite sections of town. 

Needless to say I was not disappointed with our session! It was a great session.

Here are some of our final images:

White Queen Theme and More! - Model: Eunises R.

Eunises and I have tried for a while to get together to collaborate.  Finally our schedules fit!  She wanted a White Queen theme with a rose garden. We found the location.  We got great shots!  I have to say this collaboration rocked!

Abby & Arjun - Happily Ever After

Let me start with saying Arjun and Abby are such sweet people.  They make me smile, they are so happy with each other.

Arjun approached me a last year to see if I would like to take the surprise proposal photos at a winery in Napa.  She of course said "yes".  Which then led to me doing their engagement photos, which were so fun to do!  When the wedding came up I could not wait to see them so happy on their special day. I had the opportunity to be the second photographer at their wedding.  They picked the wonderful DeLoach Winery as their venue.  Everything was so beautiful and everyone had so much fun sharing Arjun and Abby's special day.

Highlights of the Wedding!

Styled Snow Shoot - 2016 (HS Senior)

Out of the blue, I received a message asking if I would be interested in photographing a styled high school senior session.  I was so surprised and excited.  I was invited to attend this session with high profile senior photographers.  I so honored to be thought of!

I took my few hour drive and joined the group at makeup/stylist location.  Then we loaded up our equipment and headed for the Tahoe National forest, which is loaded with snow.  The day was absolutely beautiful.  We hardly ever had to wear our jackets.

We had seven models, styled and ready for us to photograph.  We had 4.5 mins. with each model.  We posed them our style.  It was fun to watch how each person posed and photographed the models.

I have so many wonderful shots, but I had to pick 1 each to send in for a magazine publication.  So of course I will need to post more later.  But here are 6 that I really liked, but there are so many more.

Thank you to the wonderful models and stylists that made this possible.  Thank you to a special photographer that included me in this moment!

Rachel - SRHS Class of 2016- Senior Portrait Session

I am very excited about taking this high school senior's photos.  I have known Rachel since I think she was about 2 or 3.  My daughter and Rachel went to the same daycare and have remained friends since that time.  

Rachel has very beautiful eyes and has a great personality.  I am very excited to see where life takes Rachel. I wish the best for her future.

Here are some of the beautiful shots that Rachel chose from her session with me.

The Kids Have Grown

Every year I get to take these adorable kids photos!  They are twins and so much different than each other.   It is fun seeing their personalities change each each year, not to mention watching them grow.  I was honored to do their photos again this year.

Here are some of the family picks:

Every year they do one of these shots to show the kids growing in front of them. 

His name starts with "E".  So it is only fitting we have a photo with an "E".

Dean and Makha

I had the opportunity to photography Dean and Makha during this special time in their life.  They are expecting their first baby.  They are a wonderful couple and will make wonderful parents.  You can tell they adore each other and are very excited for the arrival of the baby boy.

Thank you Dean and Makha again for letting me capture your memories.
