We travel to Newport, Rhode Island every Summer to visit grandparents.  Newport is so beautiful in Summer and kids love going there, lots of beach time and lots of fun time with grandparents.   I bring my super heavy camera bag across the country to document this precious memory at Third Beach, same location every year.   It makes me so happy to see kids are having so much fun with grandpa and grandma and I’m so happy that I was able to capture it. This time, my daughter, all she waned to do was run , run and run away from camera!  She is a very busy 2 years old 😉  but we got lots of fun shots!  I can’t wait to print them and display them in the house.  My kids enjoy seeing family pictures on the wall and we talk about all fun memories.

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!

 

It was another fun session at Baker Beach!  It was little windy but kids enjoyed dipping their feet in the water !  I took my first Family portraits in Baker Beach when I moved here 3 years ago from New York, so I get excited every time I go there!

Thank you for a fun time, F Family and enjoy the pictures!

 

 

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!

18 months old session at Benicia Beach.  See? he LOVES water!

It was the most beautiful day at Baker Beach!  The weather was around 80’s and the beach was packed with people who were enjoying gorgeous San Francisco Fall Weather.  Below is one of my favorite from their maternity session. They are so in love and I could just feel it by watching them 😉  Michelle & Derek are expecting a baby boy in November and I’m so excited to see him!  Thank you for a beautiful evening at Baker Beach!   It was the perfect night to create their maternity portraits!

 

 

 

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!!

Terra & Kenyon, I met them back in May when we did a Gender reveal session at flower field.  (You can view those photos from here )  They are so excited to have a baby girl and now mom’s belly is really showing beautiful baby bump, it was time to do maternity session!   I usually schedule maternity session between 30-35 weeks, not too early or not too close the due date 😉  I LOVE how belly looks in maxi dress, especially white dress for the beach session !  It was a warm evening and we had so much fun getting our feet wet.  Sunset at the beach is so gorgeous and one of my favorite thing to do is create a silhouette portraits.  Aren’t they gorgeous? I especially LOVE the last one of Terra’s silhouette portraits.

I can’t wait to meet their baby girl, Zoey soon!!

 

How cute!

They are so happy together and I can just feel it 😉

And their baby girl’s name is Zoey.  What a beautiful name 😉

This is our favorite and going up on their living room  wall;-)  Beautiful framed gallery wrapped canvas!


LOVE LOVE LOVE!
