About Me

cropped-dsc_4612-emi-april-2014-logo2.jpgMy name is Hilda I 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 German Shepherd named Zeus. I am a coffee, jean, music and movie lover. 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.

I aim to capture images that tell a story, about you, your love story, your kids, your family – at the time in your lives when the images were taken. I believe that there is nothing sweeter than re living a specific point in time just by a glance of a photograph.

My goal is to make you feel comfortable during sessions so that your true smile and character is visible in the images I take. I love to meet new families, cry at all weddings, want to hear all about a couple’s love story, feel the urge to hug babies and little ones, love to hear about a Senior’s plans after high school or college and think belly bumps are an adorable miracle.

Feel free to take a look at my portfolio and send me an email if you would like information on booking a session.
