I really enjoyed this opportunity to do some Bay Area portrait photography of my gorgeous red-headed friend; she asked if we could do portraits with her dogs, fancy champagne coupes, and playing her cello.

In mid-May family members from across the west coast made the journey up to Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA to celebrate, and I got to take the graduation photos! Congratulations for graduating, and for all your hard work! So, short, ridiculous story time: unusual late-season rain was predicted for this weekend. I knew this. […]
