So cute!  Little Olivia came to my photo studio in Walnut Creek  with her two big sisters, mom and dad! I have photographing girls for TUTU School recital Photos last couple years then we did Holiday maternity Family Session last year in Walnut Creek! Olivia wanted to see what was happening in studio so she was awake most of the session.  Look at her big beautiful eyes!  It is nice that mom takes time to bring baby #3 to photo session to capture this big milestone.  After 1st child, #2, # 3…. get less photos taken as life gets super busy for family.   Welcome to the world, Olivia!  I look forward to photographing you again at  your next milestone!

 

 

Welcome to the world, Cristiano!  I have been photographing S family since last year!  This time, they brought their new addition to the family, Cristiano!  I love seeing family growing up through my lens.   Cristiano was such a happy baby during the photo shoot and he even showed me some smile!    I can’t wait to photograph him again at his next milestone!

 

 

 

What a beautiful Family!   Mom has her own dental practice in Napa and she found out about my service through Contra Costa Dentistry in Walnut Creek where I have a huge and gorgeous family photo gallery wrap canvas displayed at entrance.   Canvas is from a photo session of the owner, Contra Costa Dentistry, Dr. Tiffany Ham .   

I LOVE Referrals.  Most of my clients find me through friends and I LOVE it! Big thank you to my amazing clients, too!

For M Family Session, we started at my studio in downtown Walnut Creek , we did beautiful family portraits in backight, and also business headshot for mom and dad!   Then headed to one of my favorite park near my studio and created more fun photos together!  Mom has invested in 5 beautiful canvases to display at her home. It’s going to look so beautiful.    My goal is for clients to have printed memory on the wall so that you can look at it everyday, give you smiles and passed down on generation.  Thank you for a fun session, M Family!

 

 

 

Saira and her mom and dad came from Fremont for her newborn family portrait session!   Saira is a beautiful sweet baby and I absolutely enjoyed photographing her and create her very first portrait! She even showed me some smile during the session, too! How sweet!    Thank you fo choosing me to create your family’s very first family portraits and I look forward to photographing you again at Saira’s next milestone!

Such a fun family photo session with C family!  I have photographed their daughter, Kyla couple times at TUTU School recitals photo sessions.  I work with TUTU School in Walnut Creek and Montclair and I photograph all little ballerinas in their recital outfits for their Bravo Bash !  It’s a cutest thing!    We started C family’s photo session at my studio in downtown Walnut Creek then headed to one of my favorite park near by!  My clients enjoy doing studio and outdoor photos in one session!  Studio session is more classic look and outdoor is more candidate look!  Yellow flowers were blooming so we stopped at flower field , too!  C family ordered three beautiful 16×20 canvases to display at their home and 10×10 custom design album for keepsake.  It is so special to have beautiful tangible products that you can look back for many years to come.

 

 

Kira came to my studio for baby milestone family session. This sitting up stage (when baby is around 7-9 month )is absolutely my favorite age group to photograph! They are usually so chubby, cute and smile and I just LOVE it!!  Both mom and dad are Dr. so it looks up a while to set up a session date in their busy work schedule and we had to reschedule one due to the rain, too….!   We started session at my portrait studio in downtown Walnut Creek, we created family portraits, mommy & Kira, Daddy & Kira and Kira’s individual portraits.  Studio session is perfect for baby because we can do some naked baby portraits in warm environment.  We went to park after to create outdoor portraits , I love it that now I can offer studio and outdoor session in one session,  it’s so much fun to create two different look of family portrait in one session! I can’t wait for them to display these beautiful pictures on their wall!
