Seth | Lincoln High | Stockton, Ca High School Senior Photographer

So I have watched this one grow up for some time now and he's become one handsome young man. I love how he and his mom planned on bringing his two loves...his skateboard and guitar...but they kind of forgot the skateboard...But that's okay, because we did manage to get his guitar in a few shots! I also love that Seth has a secret fun job that I can't mention anything about, lol! He is a youth leader for St. Luke's and sings and plays lead guitar in his own band, Koffey Crew too. And on top of all that he will be graduating from Lincoln High School in a few weeks. Congratulations Seth, you are one talented boy! Keep on doing what you love!

Sundays, The Bloom Forum, 16 talented ladies, 52 weeks, 52 themes, 16 different interpretations = one inspiring year! Week 36 Theme: Labor (Day Weekend)...My oldest son has been away at running camp in the City for the past 2 labor day weekends and this his 3rd. After spending a few fun hours with the Nisby family (Ty, Cheryl and their beautiful daughter Kaia) it reminded me of how much I missed having everyone home on long weekends :(.  However, I did get to spend some solo movie time with my youngest Kyle, after spending some family time with the Nisby's. I loved photographing them in their gorgeous home...here's a few peeks at their session. Thank you again Cheryl and Ty for welcoming us into your home...you have a beautiful, beautiful family! Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone...hope you're enjoying it with your family.
