The cutest session ever!  Around 4 months is filled with milestones!  Smiles, tummy time, finding toes, all the cuteness you want to remember and I’m here to capture them!   I LOVE Baby Life Style Session, I think it makes extra special and memorable  to do a photo session at your home using baby’s nursery, bedroom as a backdrop. Colette has such a cute nursery, all color coordinated in purple!  Enjoy the picture, mom and dad! It was such a fun session!

2 weeks till I return to San Francisco from Japan!  This year is bringing  a lot of changes to my life, both personally and professionally!

Baby #2 is due in end of May so I will be taking off from beginning of May to end of June. Between now and then, I am only booking maternity, newborn and 2~10 month old ( non-walking) baby sessions. All other sessions will resume July!





I LOVED photographing Kaydence!  Her mom, Hilarie  and I have been working together for last 3 years in lots of baby/kids events. She organizes Hilarie’s Helpful Hints    which offers lots of fun activities and play group for kids. It’s also a great resource for new parents!  I have been photographing Hilarie and her family for last 3 years, last session we did together was a maternity session in Hawaii last November so I was really excited to see Kaydence for the first time!   She has such a cute smiles and she did great at the session!  These pictures were used on her birth announcement cards 😉    I can’t wait to photograph Kaydence and her family again! Next time, maybe she will be walking 😉



Emiri, she is one of the cutest baby I’ve ever photographed!  I know Emiri’s mom for more than 6 years now.  We became friends when we both lived in New York City and we had so much fun together, traveling, shopping, dining, concerts, etc, everything NYC offers, we did it together. What a great memories!   Time flies by and now I have almost 4years old son and she just welcomed her first baby girl, last December.   I was so excited to photograph Emiri’s 3 months old portraits.  First we headed to Koishikawa Kourakuen in Tokyo for cherry blossom.  At age 3 months old, there are lots of break during the session, feeding, changing,  and sometime baby falling asleep… 😉  Those are all cute and precious moments and I’m here to capture all of them 😉    We were able to create sweet portraits with cherry blossoms and more at home.   I’ll be photographing Emiri throughout this year and can’t wait for a next session.  Next one is when she is sitting up on her own!   I love the Spring in Tokyo!


One of my favorite!

This one is displayed in her living room!  Love this one!

So sweet….

Mom requested to photograph while she is feeding.  This is such a special moments and I wish I have pictures like this with my son!!!


We had fun morning at Blackhawk Plaza in Danville for their family photo session 😉  It was their new baby little girl, Annette’s first photo shoot ( I love the name! ) and I was so excited to meet her.  3 months is such a cute age to photograph, they show such a cute smiles that just melt your heart ….  Don’t you think?   Annette was so happy throughout the session and her big brother, Griffin was so gentle with her little sister.   Griffin just loved running around the plaza!  Their house is going to be filled with these fun pictures and I can’t wait to see them up on their wall!  Thank you for a fun session and enjoy the pictures!

LOVE LOVE this smile!

Sweet big brother!

And he is SO handsome, too. ( see the lipstick on his cheek from his mom?? ) Cute.
