Archive for '9 months old session'

 

Here’s gorgeous L Family!  I photographed L family for their life style newborn session at their house in San Francisco last September. As they are my baby collection client which is the package of three sessions to capture baby’s first year, we met in Embacadero in San Francisco for their second session.  Their youngest daughter, Ariana is crowing and sitting up, such a cute age to create milestone portraits!  We started at Cupid’s span then walked to brick wall building plaza for different look!  Thank you for a fun session, L family, next time Ariana will be walking !

 

I have been photographing W family for last 5 years now! Big sister was on my baby plan, so I photographed her at all milestone in first year then family sessions every year , then Alex was born. It seems like it was only yesterday when I photographed Alex for his newborn family pictures and now he is 8 months old!!  Time Flies!  8 month old, sitting up stage is such a cute age to photograph and it is absolutely one of my favorite!

We went o Embacaderro in San Francisco for this family session. I love the urban look and bow & arrow look so cute in back ground as well.  Can’t wait to photograph W family again when Alex is ONE! He will be walking !!!  Enjoy the pictures!

I’ve been photographing L family for about 2 years now.  Our first session was when Jason, the older brother was about 9 months old, since then, I photographed L family for Jason’s 1 years old, 18months old, 2 years old, maternity portraits, Nathan, younger brother’s newborn, etc. It’s an amazing feeling to watch them growing up from 9 month old to 2 and half months, from family of 3 to family of 4.   This session is for Nathan’s 8 months old portraits!  Nathan enjoyed picking up rocks and leaves and playing with them, Jason loves water, so he got soaking wet… playing in the water. they all made such a cute portraits!  Can’t wait to photograph L family again when I’m back in San Francisco next time!

 

Our very first session!

Nathan, younger brother’s newborn portraits!

Nathan’s 8 months old session 😉

The cutest smile!!

 

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!

 

This is just adorable!  My dentist asked me to photograph her daughter to create display in her office.  Originally we were going to wait till she had full set of teeth but I suggested we do one now because we could see her two bottom teeth when she smiles and  I knew it would make a cute portraits.  We let her hold tooth brush and we got so many cute photos while she was playing with it.   I can’t wait to photograph her again with full set of teeth 😉   My 3 years old son had a great first time dentist experience with Spring dental last month and I highly recommend them!!

 

Can she get any cuter than this??

” serious face” is cute, too!

 

How cute is he??  I loved meeting Gavin for his 9 months old portraits.  His grandparents drove 2 hours to join the session, too!    Gavin joined my   Baby Collection so I will be photographing him again when he is 1 year old and 18 months old.  I love watching baby growing up through my lens ♥  Since Gavin’s family lives in Oakland, I wanted to select the location between us.  It’s always fun to search for a new photo location and Lafayette Reservoir is now one of my favorite place since Gavin’s session.  Light was so pretty in early in the morning 😉   Gavin is such a happy handsome boy and can you guess which one is mom’s favorite image?  Mom loved the first image of Gavin sticking his tongue out and this is going up in their bedroom. I’m sure this picture will make them smile every morning!   I usually ask clients how they want to remember their children at this age, for Gavin, sticking his tongue out was his thing at 9 months old 😉  So, I’m so happy that I was able to capture that!   Thank you for such a fun time and enjoy the pictures!!  I can’t wait for next session together!

 

 

Mom’s favorite!

I LOVE this one!!

How sweet is this with grandparents?
