Daniel John's Graduation Portrait Session - Hiddenbrooke, Vallejo, Calif.

Daniel John's Graduation Portrait Session - Hiddenbrooke, Vallejo, Calif.

Daniel – or "Daniel John," as I'm used to calling him – is a young man of many talents. First, he's the reigning Duncan West Coast Yo-Yo Amateur Champion who has gained quite the following on Instagram. Second, he's a practicing violinist, and my wife and I were lucky enough to have him play at our wedding! And three, he's a budding photographer and quite the prodigy, if I do say so myself.

Janelle's Graduation Portrait Session - Dominican University of California

This winter, Janelle will be graduating from Dominican University with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. When she approached me to take her senior portraits, it was a no-brainer! She did give us our puppy after all. So I guess we can call it even, now...

Rey's Senior Portrait Shoot - Dominican University, San Rafael, Calif.

Since my brother Rey is about to graduate from Dominican University with his Master's in Occupational Therapy, he asked me if I could snap some senior portraits for him. We started the day early, and Rey showed me his favorite spots on-campus. After a few hours exploring, we wrapped up with lunch at Sol Food — a local Puerto Rican restaurant with the best fried plantains in all the land.
