So, Leivy was one of the FIRST clients I had in California! She answered a model call in the Spring of her junior year and I loved being her photographer so much that I invited her to be a senior model during her senior year at Atwater High. She chose to do her senior solo session as a destination shoot in San Francisco! And I couldn’t have been happier about it. All her photos in downtown San Francisco, as well as at Baker Beach turned out SO beautifully.
Ummm…… I’m a little behind on blogging….. Like two years behind………..
BUT, I couldn’t NOT blog about my session with Christine! Christine is a graduate of Gregori High School in Modesto and is now studying at CSU East Bay. She is also GORGEOUS and a really sweet person.
We had such a fun day running around San Francisco in Union Square and going to Baker Beach for some sunset photos. Her sister got to come with us and we even took a few shots with her.
I love destination shoots and LOVE being a destination photographer. San Fran is one of my all time favorite places because you can get SO many diverse looks in a relatively small geographic place.
Christine KILLED it and her photos looked amazing. So glad I can share a few of them with you.
Whew! It’s been a hot minute since I blogged, so I’m playing catch up…… again! But Jared was a 2018 Senior and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to showcase his photos on my blog! His style was awesome and went really well with the Downtown Turlock location that he chose, as well as the natural location.
His mom chose a framed collage as well as an amazing 8x8 album as their art pieces and they turned out gorgeous.
These girls are so fun! They answered the call for Senior Models in the Central Valley of California from Atwater, Manteca, Turlock, Hughson, and Modesto- and were so great to work with for the 2017-2018 school year. It’s been so fun watching them all go chase their dreams and pursue their individual interests.
This girl! It was so fun to work with her and see some of the beautiful pieces of jewelry she creates. I love to support local small business here in Turlock and in the Central Valley of California, so it was so awesome that Macie was interested in having photos done. We took a few photos of her pieces and then went to the river where she modeled her creations. It was so fun to get to know her.
This gorgeous lady is another one of my dear friends. We have known each other since HIGH-SCHOOL, and I'll spare you the details of how long ago that was, haha! But, just know we've been friends for a long time. She and her husband have two of the cutest kiddos on the planet and while dad was away fighting forest fires (THANK YOU to all our firefighters!) we got together and did a little mommy and me session.
Lisa is one of my dearest friends and this is she and her family! We met several years ago when I moved to a TINY town in the middle of Montana and became fast friends. She moved away from that town and a few years later I moved away as well, but we kept in touch and have remained friends. She is part of the mom-squad that I do my girl's trips with every year!
It was SO fun to get to photograph her adorable kids and wonderful husband. Miss you like crazy, Lis!
This girl!! She is my photography other half, you guys! We met a few years ago (holy crap how has it been so long!?!?!?!) in an online business class. After many many skype meetings, google hangouts, and messages back and forth, I drove to Utah and we did some branding images for her business. You can find her at www.McKenzieSchindler.com
Branding images are SO much more than headshots these days. When I do branding images, I take in to consideration not only what the images will be used for, but the image and "feel" that you want your brand and business to convey. We work together to come up with a plan to create images for your website and social media. These images are not only pretty shots, but they help convey your personality and what you can bring to your customers or clients.
McKenzie wanted shots in the mountains of Utah, and we took a few casual, relaxed photos, a few goofy and crazy photos (social media gold ;) ) as well as a few that are more formal.
My favorites are the photos of her laughing, because they genuinely convey the sweetness and fun of this cute business owner!
This session was a year ago!! AACK! I can't even believe it. You guys, I'm playing major catch up, but hopefully seeing the images can give you an idea of the variety of images I get. I had a HARD time narrowing the number of images down for Taylor because she is SO gorgeous.
We started off in Downtown Turlock, which is a location I ADORE! So many fun spots to grab photos!
Then we headed down to the river for some natural shots. This shoot was during the spring of 2017 when AAAAALLLLL the flooding was going on, so we got some amazing shots on the steps with Taylor's feet in the water. I was waist deep in the water, but it was WORTH IT!
I've been missing from this little corner of the internet for a bit! But I wanted to share Dani with you and the fun images we got. Dani is actually a Hughson High School graduate, but we decided to go up to Ripon for her session & check out Ripon Army Corps Park. That park, you guys! So many cool spots! We got some urban looking shots with the graffiti and a few shots up on the bridge, we got some by the river and on the trails as well. Seriously, such a great location.
We did hair and makeup in Salida with a great makeup artist, Aneesa. She gave Dani a really natural look with just enough glam for the camera.
Once we got to the park we started under the bridge and got some super cool shots with the graffiti and the pillars.
The rest of the session we tromped around the park and battled a few mosquitos, but ended up with an amazing final result.
