Archive for '6 months old session'


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!

Chelsea turned 6 months old the day we met for the session 😉  It was her first professional portraits since she was born, so I was really excited to photograph her!  She was dressed in pink and it was perfect for the location I selected.  It matched perfectly  with pink flower field I found 😉  Her big sister, Charlotte just LOVED exploring the park! We had fun running around.  Thank you for a fun time, enjoy the pictures!!

Isn’t it a cute collage?



Look at this beautiful smile ♥ I can’t believe Lila is 6 months old already!!  It seems like it was only a few weeks ago when we did her newborn portrait at my studio.  Lila has 2 older siblings and we all had so much fun at the park!  They are so sweet with their little sister  and I love the one that 3 kids are looking water.   Mom requested a session at the beach and this 9th street park in Benicia was just  a perfect location for Lila’s 6 months old portraits.  Can’t wait for her 1 year old session, it will be another cute one!  Enjoy the pictures!!

Do you remember him??   I can’t believe Adin is 6 months old already!   He has gorgeous eyes like his big sister Sabine and I had so much fun photographing him and his family.  Sabine was having lots of fun splashing and throwing rocks in water! When I chose photo location for client, I usually recommend a couple different places depends on the theme like beach, greens, creeks, trees, etc.  Mom selected this location in San Ramon because this is where Adin was born.  I thought it was really sweet 😉  There are so many beautiful photo location in east bay and it’s always fun to explore and discover new places which is perfect for milestone portraits, family portraits, etc.  Adin is my Baby Collection client so I get to see him again when he turns ONE!   Next session will be another pretty one with leave changing colors for Fall.  Enjoy the pictures, mom and dad!


Adin was 10 days old when I first photographed him.


And look how much he has changed!   Love this gorgeous smile 😉

Big sister Sabine looks like an angel with her white dress!

So so sweet.


Time flies by and look how big Lila is!  At her newborn session, we used red flower for her newborn portrait and mom wanted to keep ” red theme” for this 8 months old session, too.  She had this beautiful red dress and she looked so adorable in it ♥ I love photographing this age.  They are so smiley ! Her both grandparents joined for the session, too and we had lots of fun together!  I really do love having grandparents in the session. The way they look at their grandkids are just so sweet and special 😉  We enjoyed exploring, bubble, splashing water, throwing rocks.. etc.  Thank you for letting me capture this special moments for your family!   Enjoy the pictures!!

One of my favorite newborn portraits!

So cute!   Big sister, Siena loves to sing and we ended our session with her ” twinkle twinkle little star” you can listen her singing in video below. it’s just adorable 😉  We also created a super cute collage for Daddy for father’s day gift and I know he is going to love it!  Can’t wait for our next session when Lucia turns 1 !  ~Enjoy the pictures~
