Meet Leivy! | Turlock Senior Photos

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.

Meet Christine! | Modesto Senior Photographer

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.

I adore the architecture of San Francisco!

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.

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!

Model Call!

Hey There!  

I'm doing a model call for Turlock, California  and the surrounding areas in Central California.  This is my first year to experience the incredible SPRING here in the Central Valley, and I'd love to capture it with you.

 If you are a senior  or a family and you're interested in doing a session with me, please send me your email and head over to my model call page to get all the details.

I am so excited to build my business here in California and I have loved getting to know the people here.  I can't wait to meet more of you and create some gorgeous images together! 

Turlock, California and Lessons in Change

If you would have told me a year ago that today I'd be sitting at my computer in the middle of the Central Valley of California I probably would have laughed at you.  I might have even thought you were crazy. A year ago, we were living in a teensy tiny town in Montana, over an hour from the nearest stoplight, but filled with amazing people with huge hearts.  I had a business that was growing, and was happy.   

When my husband told me that he had a great job opportunity close to his family in California, I pretty much knew we couldn't pass it up, no matter how much I loved Montana.  But, chaaaaaaaaange. Change is grueling, and hard to wrap my head around sometimes.  I once heard someone describe the feeling of change as being similar to sandpaper across your skin.  You know you're not going to die, but it is uncomfortable and horrible, and the anticipation of the pain can sometimes be what sucks the most.   Over the course of the last year, however, I've come to view change through a different lens.  It can be cleansing.  It can be liberating.  It can push you to become a better, more authentic version of yourself, and it can be a fantastic catalyst for growth. 

Our little family packed up and moved across 4 states all the way to Turlock, and I am so happy to be here!  I have made a few changes to my business, including a name change!   I'm so excited about all the new opportunities here, as well as the amazing experience Wendy Vincent Photography is now able to offer clients.   Because of this move, I've not only made positive changes in my business, but it's helped me be so grateful for my little family and the unit we are.  And, if change can help me gain a perspective that contributes to living an abundant life, I say "BRING IT ON".
