About Me

Hey there and welcome to my blog. My name is Hilda and I am a Latina who grew up in California’s Central Valley after moving from Los Angeles at the age of 12. I met the man of my dreams when I was 19 and we are now living our happily ever after along our two beautiful children, Jacob and Emily. We are fur parents to a playful German Shepherd named Zeus and an adorable Shih Tzu named Chloe.  I believe in God, true love, friendship and that laughter & prayers are the best medicine.


I fell in love with photography around the same time I fell in love with my first born, Jacob. I wanted to capture every single little detail about him so my husband bought me my first camera, a Nikon point and shoot. Soon I moved up to my first DSLR and the adventure into professional photography began. Hilda Medrano Photography opened in 2009 and has been going strong ever since. But I am more than just a photographer. I am a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter and a friend. I love writing, books, food, jeans, makeup, movies, music and coffee. So – allow me to share what I love and also give you a little sense of the gal behind the lens.
