So I had the honor of photographing the Alumnae Dinner for the Chicana Latina Foundation. Who is that...well they are, according to their website....

The Chicana/Latina Foundation (CLF) is a non-profit organization which promotes professional and leadership development of Latinas. The Foundation's mission is to empower Chicanas/Latinas through personal, educational, and professional advancement.

The activities of the Chicana/Latina Foundation (CLF) are focused on making positive changes that can and will empower Latinas. All of these efforts bring together the strength and effort of individuals and the community.

  • CLF Scholarship - CLF assists Latina students in completing their undergraduate and graduate college education. These scholarships are available on a competitive basis to continuing Latina undergraduate and graduate college students attending a University in Northern California. See the Scholarship section for complete details.
  • Get Latinos Connected - With a renewed grant from the California Emerging Technology Fund, and in collaboration with the (LCF) Latino Community Foundation, CLF plans to bridge the digital divide for over 3000 new internet users.
  • Building Healthy Relationships - CLF will work with high school programs to engage students in a series of educational workshops to promote healthy relationships among teenagers.
  • Leadership Institute - The Leadership Institute was designed to offer an educational and mentoring component for the Scholarship Awardees during the year of their scholarship.
  • Skill-Building Workshops - We travel to many colleges & universities in northern California to increase Latinos' writing and interviewing skills in order to enhance their ability to compete more successfully in the scholarship application process

October 14, 2016, that was the date of the event. Thirty six Latinas were awardees for 2016. I must say I did feel a little intimidated photographing some very respectable and strong Latina's. All in all I was glad I  had help that evening. Thanks to Lupe (crew guy), and Harvey (second photographer). I am grateful to them because without them I would have never been able to shoot this event alone. By far this is the biggest event I  have ever shot and very grateful for having the opportunity to shoot this event.
