Studio Portraits with Nugget the Bulldog

What a ‘model’ pet!  Nugget was a ton of fun to photograph. This 4-year-old English Bulldog was perfectly content in front of the lens. Catherine, his incredibly talented owner,

plans to publish a line of greeting cards. Here are a few of my favorites (bummer that I can’t post them all!)NG-0041







Lodi Family Keeps Growing!

I love this family! It’s been great watching them grow over the years. I photographed Jasmine and Ross’ wedding back in 2006 and then I can remember when she called me wanting maternity photos.

How fun to photograph both girls as newborns and toddlers. Now they are expecting a little boy!  Congratulations to Jasmine and Ross and thank you for choosing me as your photographer!



High School Seniors – Annette from Rio Vista High School

I had a great time photographing Annette last week. What a dynamic young lady and I’m really excited to see what her future holds.

Annette is a senior at Rio Vista High School where she’s also a cheerleader. She was crowned Senior Queen this year at the Holy Ghost Festival and she’s involved in many community

service projects here in Rio.   Here are a few of my favorites from our session in Lodi…

Senior Portraits – Mequila

What fun to photograph a former student of mine! I remember Mequila as a bright, ambitious and helpful young student at Wagner-Holt Elementary.  Now she’s a Senior at Lincoln High!

She was also one heck of a runner and I was thrilled to find out that she’s running track. (She is nursing a broken bone in her foot, so we opted for studio photos).  Here are a few of my favorites from

our session.

This young man is going places!

Last week I was thrilled to photograph a young man who is on the path to success.  Andrew is just starting his senior year at Tokay. He is smart, polite, fun and full of ambition.

I love seeing his attitude toward the future and the way that he embraces life. He is wild about science, reads all the time and plays a great game of tennis. He digs astronomy and biology and has a

darling girlfriend.  Andrew…I wish you the best of luck and can’t wait to see you evolve into adulthood!








Potbelly “Miss Bits” Visits my Studio

I had a very unique visitor to my studio this summer! Meet Miss Bits. She weighs 4 pounds and likes Cheerios or anything else that you will share with her.  She is clean, cute, VERY well-loved and ALWAYS entertaining!  Thank you Luan for bringing her in!









Vanessa & Sean are Engaged!

I love hanging with positive people.  Vanessa and Sean are fun and fit and full of life! We had a great time in San Francisco taking their Engagement photos and I really look forward to their wedding next year at the Serrano Country Club !

We even had a pod of dolphins make a brief appearance while we were taking photos at Baker Beach! I’ve never had that happen before, so it was a real treat.  Here are a few images from our session…
