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!

 

 

This Mother’s Day, I want you to exist in photographs for your children, for people who love you and for yourself.

Create memories that last a lifetime.

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!

Happy 1st Birthday Naya!

This is my 7th year photographing S family !  I LOVE LOVE capturing family growing up through my lens.  Our first session together , Ellie, the younger daughter was in mommy’s belly!  Since then we did newborn session, many many milestone sessions, Holiday sessions, and First communion in Danville, Birthday parties, etc!  As I spend my photo studio in downtown Walnut Creek early this year, I suggested S family to do dress up holiday family portraits at studio first then go outdoor for more Casula look.  We went to Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek. It’s a very popular photo location for children, family, engagements  sessions and especially this time of the year, I see many families creating family photos for Holiday Cards there!    Mom always put together the perfect outfit for family and I LOVE them!  Very stylish!    I can’t wait for a next session in 2018!
