Izzy and Ellie, They are my favorite girls!  They are my very first client and I’ve been photographing them for last 3 years now!  It’s such a joy to watch them grow up.  Mom dress them in such a cute outfits and, she always find the best outfits that match with the location I chose.   We met at one of my new favorite park in Danville, I like how those line of trees look in pictures.  As most of you know, I’m moving to Japan for a year and looking forward to coming back to visit next Summer to  photograph my clients again 😉

Thank you for a fun time!

 

 

Lila turns 1!!   I can’t believe she is turning 1 already!  Where did the all time go?   This is my 3 rd time I’m photographing Lila since she was born.  Mom dressed her in RED before and this 1 year old milestone portraits, she decided to keep Red theme.  I love how red coat stands out in the trees.  This is my new favorite park in Danville !  I just discovered this park last week and loving it!  I ‘m curious to see how this park looks like in Summer!

Mom is so creative, she is creating ” family history wall”  in her family living room.  she has ordered 2 canvases from each sessions and after this session, she will have 6 canvases to tell a story of her family.  I really LOVED her idea so I’ve been suggesting to my clients and I’m starting one for my wall, too!   I love getting inspired from my clients!    Thank you for another wonderful session and can’t wait to photograph Lila again!

 

I have photographed Aidin 2 years ago for his newborn portraits and I was so excited when mom contacted me for his 2 years old portraits!  Mom requested a session at Martinez regional shoreline Park  in Martinez, CA since they come to this park often to see ducks and they are moving to L.A soon, they wanted to capture this special moments at their favorite park!   It was a beautiful evening !  I LOVE the weather in California ♥   Enjoy the pictures, mom and dad!

Kids LOVE bubble!!!  and it makes such a cute pictures!

P family is one of the first family I photographed when I started my photography business about 2 years ago.  First time was for their older daughter, Aliya’s 1 year old session at Baker Beach in San Francisco, then maternity session for their 2nd baby, Kira at Rose Garden in Berkley,  Kira’s Newborn session,  Kira’s 9 months old session in Mustard flower field in Napa and this last one to complete her Baby Collection session was at Baker Beach!  Mom requested to do the last session at Baker Beach again since when we were there 2 years ago, it was foggy and we couldn’t see much of the Golden Gate Bridge.  It started off with little foggy but I was keeping my fingers closed and it turned out to be the one of the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen at Baker Beach.  Fog drifted away and we had a clear view of the bridge, too!!  We had so much fun there, walking on the beach, jumping from the rocks, running around, etc, everything was just perfect and I’m so happy with the images from this session ♥  I LOVE watching kids growing up through my lens and documenting this special time of their life and turned those memories into beautiful products that family will cherish forever. I’m creating album featuring favorites from last 2 years session 😉   and also gorgeous framed metal prints to be displayed in their dining room.   Yes, I LOVE my job!  There simply no words to describe how I feel while watching mom’s tears of joy and laughter as they enjoy images I create.  It’s more than a privilege to be able to capture their memories and, in the end, form a lasting friendship.  Life is full of magical surprises!  And creating art out of that magic is what makes my adventure the most rewarding experience I could ever imagine.  I am  grateful for the best job in the world, and I am grateful to have such an amazing clients like P Family!

 

Girls changed so much in last 2 years!!


One of my favorite!  Love the reflection on water, too!

How sweet is this?

Jump, jump, jump!!

Amazing sunset!

With Daddy!

 

What a beautiful family!!  When mom contacted me for the first time, she mentioned that their 2.5 years old girl has never been formally photographed and husband hates being in photos….so I was little nervous about this session.  But we had so much fun at the park running around together and I could never tell that daddy didn’t like being pictures taken.  I was able to capture so many sweet moments of this family.

Thank you for a fun time at the park!  H Family!

 

 

I was so excited when I saw F family was signing up for my holiday mini session. I have been photographing their little girl, Ella for over last 2 years at events like, Valentine, Easter and Halloween. She always have such a pretty outfit when she come to my photo booth at the event so I was really excited to see what she was going to wear for this session!   Her red dress looks very nice against the fall color in the back and having red in portraits make it look more holiday 😉  Her big brother Ray is so gentle with her and I would love love to have  a big brother like Ray for my son !!

Thank you for letting me capture your holiday portraits!  Enjoy your custom design holiday cards and pictures!!

 

 

This is my 3rd photo session with T family!   I first met them last year to create their Holiday family portraits, then this September for newborn session for their new addition to the family, Mika.  I LOVE how mom dressed up Mika for this photo session ♥  If I had a girl, I would dress her like this, too!  ( I have a 3 and half years old boy!)  It was one of those gorgeous Fall afternoon and lighting was just perfect!  Mika slept through most of the session regardless of her brother running around all the time 😉 She must be enjoying her late afternoon nap at the park!  Just finished designing their holiday card for this year and it’s going to be another cute one!

Enjoy the pictures!!

 

Love this afternoon light!

For Holiday Card!

It was another fun session at Baker Beach!  It was little windy but kids enjoyed dipping their feet in the water !  I took my first Family portraits in Baker Beach when I moved here 3 years ago from New York, so I get excited every time I go there!

Thank you for a fun time, F Family and enjoy the pictures!

 

 

What a beautiful Family!  This session was done back in August as you can see from pictures!  With family’s busy schedule, we finally finalized order last week;-)  Mom loves the first pictures of their little girl doing peek-a-boo, those gallery wrap canvas collage are going up in her nursery ♥  She has such a beautiful eyes and I LOVE her curly hair!  We also put together family collage to be displayed in their hallway.  I have family pictures displayed in my house and those make me smile every time I see them and that’s what I want my clients to feel.  I want my work to bring people joy, happiness and smile ♥   Thank you for a wonderful session and looking forward to seeing you again soon for Fall Session for Holiday cards !!

Jason is 18 months old!!  I have been photographing Jason since he was 6 months old and this is my 4th sessions with him.  It’s such a joy to watch Jason growing up through behind my lens.  Now he is 18 month old, he looks like a little boy!  Mom wanted water theme since Jason loves it.  And of course, He LOVED running into water during the session ( like my 3 years old son) and playing with stick, all things that boys like to do!  It was almost impossible to get Jason stay out from water, so we all went in and had fun 😉 Jason is going to be a big brother soon and I can’t wait to meet their new addition to family.   Enjoy the pictures and thank you for another fun session!
