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.

 

 

Look at her Cheek!!!  Asian babies tend to have big cheek and I LOVE it!  I remember seeing big cheek on my baby photos.    Alexandra came to my studio in Walnut Creek  with mom and dad for her very first family portrait session!  I LOVED everything about this session. We started from studio then headed to park for outdoor portraits.   Studio session is perfect for baby in temperature control environment where baby is comfortable during the photo session. We create family portraits and portrait of just baby,  I love baby in just diaper cover,  I love seeing baby’s chubby legs and arms!!!!!   My studio is filled with beautiful natural light!    Bring your baby in to my studio to celebrate your baby’s milestone!    Mom and dad selected one of the family portrait from studio session to display in their home in beautiful gallery wrap canvas. I offer beautiful hang ready  products, such as gallery wrap canvas, framed prints and also custom design album. I offer the highest quality of products from the best professional photo lab in industry.

 

 

Happy 1st Birthday Naya! T family came to my studio on Walnut Creek to celebrate Naya’s first Birthday!  I LOVE 1st birthday milestone photo session, it’s so special and big milestone for a baby and mom and dad!  My studio is filled with natural light and it gives this beautiful soft effect on portraits and I LOVE it!  Naya’s uncle and grandpa came to photo session as well and we had so much fun together!   All my sessions are family sessions and you are welcome to bring grandparents, uncle, aunt, sisters, special people in your life.  I believe it’s important to exist in photograph and these are the photos you will look back when Naya is older and passed on to generation.    Mom invested in beautiful wall collage of framed prints to display at home. I hope these photos will make them smile every time they see them 😉

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!
