Archive for '6 months old session'

 

Ellis came in my portrait studio in downtown Walnut Creek to get his 6 months old portrait and family portraits taken. He is so adorable and mom had so many cute outfits ready for him ! I think my favorite is the cow boy one!   Isn’t he just so adorable? Mom signed up on my baby collection which is the package of 3 sessions so I will be photographing him when he turns 1 in the Fall and next year as a toddler!  I LOVE documenting family growing up.  Thank you for a fun session and I will see you soon!

It was one of the most beautiful photo session I’ve ever had!  It’s always challenging to do a session at new location that I’ve never been before.  During Thanksgiving week, I met up with V family at this beautiful beach in Oahu, Hawaii.  Blue sky, blue water and white sand, everything was just perfect and we created beautiful images together.  I’ve been photographing V family for over 2 years now and it’s such a joy to watch family growing.  I love the cheek of the little boy, M.  So chunky and so cute!!!    Some of these images are beautiful displayed in V family’s living room ☺  Thank you again for such a fun session and can’t wait to see you again in Summer!

Mom did such a great job putting everyone’s outfit together!  match perfectly with blue sky and water!

Love this one!

 

P family is one of the first family I photographed when I started my photography business about 2 years ago.  First time was for their older daughter, Aliya’s 1 year old session at Baker Beach in San Francisco, then maternity session for their 2nd baby, Kira at Rose Garden in Berkley,  Kira’s Newborn session,  Kira’s 9 months old session in Mustard flower field in Napa and this last one to complete her Baby Collection session was at Baker Beach!  Mom requested to do the last session at Baker Beach again since when we were there 2 years ago, it was foggy and we couldn’t see much of the Golden Gate Bridge.  It started off with little foggy but I was keeping my fingers closed and it turned out to be the one of the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen at Baker Beach.  Fog drifted away and we had a clear view of the bridge, too!!  We had so much fun there, walking on the beach, jumping from the rocks, running around, etc, everything was just perfect and I’m so happy with the images from this session ♥  I LOVE watching kids growing up through my lens and documenting this special time of their life and turned those memories into beautiful products that family will cherish forever. I’m creating album featuring favorites from last 2 years session 😉   and also gorgeous framed metal prints to be displayed in their dining room.   Yes, I LOVE my job!  There simply no words to describe how I feel while watching mom’s tears of joy and laughter as they enjoy images I create.  It’s more than a privilege to be able to capture their memories and, in the end, form a lasting friendship.  Life is full of magical surprises!  And creating art out of that magic is what makes my adventure the most rewarding experience I could ever imagine.  I am  grateful for the best job in the world, and I am grateful to have such an amazing clients like P Family!

 

Girls changed so much in last 2 years!!


One of my favorite!  Love the reflection on water, too!

How sweet is this?

Jump, jump, jump!!

1.2.3… jump!

Amazing sunset!

With Daddy!

 

Jason is 18 months old!!  I have been photographing Jason since he was 6 months old and this is my 4th sessions with him.  It’s such a joy to watch Jason growing up through behind my lens.  Now he is 18 month old, he looks like a little boy!  Mom wanted water theme since Jason loves it.  And of course, He LOVED running into water during the session ( like my 3 years old son) and playing with stick, all things that boys like to do!  It was almost impossible to get Jason stay out from water, so we all went in and had fun 😉 Jason is going to be a big brother soon and I can’t wait to meet their new addition to family.   Enjoy the pictures and thank you for another fun session!
