I had the privilege of meeting the Coelho family in February when I photographed Joey & Ashley’s wedding. Last Sunday I was back in my Mom’s old stomping grounds of Riverdale with the Coelho family for the Portuguese Festival. Taylor was crowned Queen of the Portuguese Festival in front of friends and family. I actually used to play my trombone in Portuguese festivals right after I graduated High School. There are a number of festivals in the valley and at Pismo Beach and they are all fun and great opportunities to have great fellowship.
Taylor had a lot of fun with her court and her friends kept her company throughout the day. I truly enjoyed talking with friends who shared stories of my Grandparents.
