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!

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…

Touchdown! Cheerleader and NFL Tight End – Married!

Stockton native and former Oakland Raiderette, Ashlee Marks married her best friend, Tampa Bay Buckaneer’s tight end Brandon Myers at the beautiful Viaggio Estate and Winery this past weekend.
What a DARLING couple! Ashlee and Brandon met thru mutual friends when Brandon was playing his rookie year with the Oakland Raiders. Brandon proposed in March of last year on the steps of Union Square in San Francisco. Their wedding day couldn’t have been more ideal, warm but not hot, with blue skies and a slight breeze. The couple’s vision of how they imagined their celebration was perfectly orchestrated. Ashlee is a serious fashionista with excellent taste and a creative mindset. She spent the past 15 months planning, organizing and designing the details of their wedding day and the entire wedding weekend. It was an honor to be a part of their remarkable day! I’m still editing, sizing and sorting images, but here are a few of my favorites.
