Hudson!! Such a cool name you have!!!

Hudson is graduating from Lassen High School! Whoot! Whoot! Considering Cal Poly or UC Santa Barbara!!

Favorite high school memory was a trip to Mexico with a few of his buddies!!! Enjoys golf, running sometimes, & occasionally pheasant hunting.

Frosty Mill would be the best burger joint in Susanville, & got a smile when I asked if he was happy Panda Express recently opened up!!! Gotta love Orange Chicken!!

Hudson!!! Thanks for putting up with all my wise cracks!!!! You were great to capture!!!!!

So excited to see what the future holds for you!! I know you are going to go far in whatever you do!

E L L I E \ Part 1 of 3

Ah! This shoot is close to my heart!!! I have been photographing Ellie since she was in second grade!!!!

She & my son would model for me while I taught classes & learned photography!!!!  May have to post one of them in one of the posts!!!

This was a dream shoot! San Francisco! We got there & just went for it!! Couldn’t narrow down the pics, so thought I would just blog the three different locations!!!

Running a little late because of traffic & Union Square under construction, we just took a few deep breaths & started walking!!!!

Oh the places you can find to photograph in San Francisco!!!!

Ellie!!! You are my fave!! I just love you so so much!!!!!!

The best is yet to come, girl!!!! Dream big! & Pursue what you are passionate about!
