Janelle's Graduation Portrait Session - Dominican University of California

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...

My nieces Simonah and Maleah celebrated their 7th and 5th birthdays today — and it was art-themed (extremely fitting for two little girls whose parents are quite artistic themselves). 

The party, which took place at a small recreation center in San Rafael, California, had all the fixins': a bounce house, pizza, "creative juice," and tables covered with enough art supplies to put Michael's out of business.

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.
