Meet Jared! | Modesto Senior Photographer

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.

Central Valley Senior Models!

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.

Macie Nicole Jewelry | Central Valley Small Business Branding

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.

Kaiser Family | Mommy and Me | Turlock Family Photos

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.

Kearl Family | Modesto Family Photographer

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!

McKenzie Schindler Photography | Turlock Branding Photographer

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!

Meet Taylor! | Turlock Senior Photography

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.  

Turlock-Photographer

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!

Meet Dani! | Ripon Senior Photographer

 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.

Meet Leivy! 2018 Senior | Turlock Senior Portrait Photographer

AAHHHH!!!  I'm excited to share these images with you guys!  Leivy and I did a session a while ago and I wanted to share when she started her senior year at Atwater High School.  I can't even tell you how easy Leivy was to work with.  Not only is she naturally SUPER gorgeous and incredibly photogenic, but she is such a sweet person.   I loved chatting with her as we ran around the Stanislaus State Campus.   And, as you can see from the image overload below, we so many gorgeous shots that it was difficult for me to even narrow them down.  

Leivy, I hope you have an INCREDIBLE senior year!  And thanks so much for working with me!

Gorgeous Miranda! | Class of 2017 | Central Valley, CA Senior Photographer

Y'all, I have been so out of it this summer!  Between my little ones home from school and the heat and the swimming and barbeques and friends and vacations and slurpees (who doesn't love a good slurpee, amiright?) WHEW!  So exhausting, but so fun.  And I've neglected my biz just a teensy bit.   Does this happen to anyone else?  Am I the only one who's brain seems to melt in the heat?  

AAAAnywhooo...... getting back on track........... I did this session months ago, but I'm just now getting around to blogging about it.  I just had to show you this amazing girl, though, because she is so phenomenal.  The more I got to know her, the more I just LOVED Miranda.  She is one of those girls that is really genuine and authentic and sweet,  and I know that she will ROCK THE SOCKS off of her college years. She graduated from Hilmar High School with the class of 2017 and signed with Holy Names University in Oakland and will be playing Volleyball for them.  I wish her the absolute BEST!  

So...................  some of you might not know, but included in the WVP Senior Experience is a wardrobe consultation. A few weeks before your photoshoot, I help you choose outfits that will compliment your personal style AND look amazing on camera.  So, I got to rifle through Miranda's closet and we chose 5 or 6 outfits and then we headed to Turlock to shop and get a few accessories.  She chose THE CUTEST beach dress as well as an adorable floppy hat that I totally wanted to keep for myself, you guys.  How darling is this outfit?

On the day of her session, we were also lucky enough to work with an amazing hair and makeup team as well.  HUGE shoutout to Teara and Alyssa,  as well as LuxLounge in Turlock for letting us use the salon to get Miranda all glammed up!!  Both Alyssa and Teara are so fun to work with and so talented.  Check out Teara's instagram HERE, Alyssa's HERE, and LuxLounge's HERE.

After Miranda was all prettied up, we headed up to Knights ferry for her photoshoot!  The spring flowers were all over the place and there were so many gorgeous locations.  This was my first time to Knights Ferry and it DID NOT disappoint.  Such a pretty place.  #sorrynotsorry for the picture overload! So many gorgeous ones to share! 

At her premiere night, Miranda and her parents opted for my top collection, which includes a gorgeous custom album, a large canvas, a senior slideshow, gift prints, all the digital images, and more.  I dropped them off right before her graduation party so that they could be on display for everybody to see and enjoy.

Miranda, thank you for letting me be a tiny part of your senior year.  I hope you loved the experience, the photoshoot, and the products.  CONGRATS!!
