I LOVE creating headshot for baby and kids model! I enjoy capturing their personality and energy and create competitive headshot in the modeling industry for future rising star!  I’m a preferred kids headshot photographer for several of top talent agencies in Bay Area and San Francisco.

As a mom of kids model, I truly understand the importance of headshot in the industry and I also understand how parents feel to get kids ready for photoshoot.  My son, Leo has been modeling for last 5 years since he was 4 years old.  We have been many casting calls, auditions and photoshoots.  I enjoy this modeling journey with him and we are lucky to be in bay area, San Francisco where there are many chances and opportunities  are waiting to happen and it could be yours!  Some of the big brand based in San Francisco is Pottery Barn Kids, Gap, Old Navy, Gymboree, Tea Collection, and many more exciting commercial and print projects!

I get so excited when I see my headshot clients in commercial, magazine, etc!   I feel happy for them like I’m their mom!!   I have many repeating clients who chose me to update their headshot every year and I enjoy watching them growing up through my lens.

I offer baby headshot at my studio in downtown Walnut Creek and kids headshot in outdoor natural light setting.  I’m available to travel to San Francisco and South Bay.  I offer business headshot, personal branding and family portrait session as well, please contact me how you can combine all sessions together in one session.  Please feel free  to ask me any questions and looking forward to working with you!

Please meet Anaya!  I had so much fun creating modeling headshot for Anaya!  We met in downtown Walnut Creek near my portrait studio.  She has such a wonderful personality and she loved being in front of the camera!   I love working with kids and I enjoy creating competitive headshot for kids models. It makes me so happy when parents send me the note with their kids modeling work and thank me for the headshot I created for them.    My 9 years old son models so I know how important it is to have a headshot that books a job.  Please feel free to email me at for any questions and to schedule a session!
