This is my third year photographing T family!  I LOVE watching and documenting  family grow through my lens.  We had such a fun Family Session at Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto. This garden is pretty all year around and it is one of my favorite location to shoot in South Bay Area!   T family invested in two beautiful 16×20 white framed prints from this session to add to other framed prints from previous sessions. They will make a beautiful history wall to tell the story of the family.  Thank you for another fun family session and see you next year!

 

Our very first session together in 2014 – with grandparents and sister

2015 – maternity session in Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco

2015 – newborn session for baby #2, Kennedy!

2015 Holiday photos with grandparents

NOW!

Please come say ” Hi” to my new portrait studio in downtown Walnut Creek!  Studio session is available for maternity, newborn, babies, families and business headshot!

 

What a fun photo session with B family! This is our 3rd sessions together.  Last two sessions were for Family Holiday sessions and this year, as dad’s sisters were in town from out of state, we did an extended family session with sisters and cousins and grandma!  We met at Briones Regional Park in Lafayette, beautiful and perfect location for family session.  Enjoy the pictures, B family!

 

I have been photographing B family for many years and it was so much fun to see them again! Last time when I photographed them, their older daughter Maddie was shorter than mom and now she is taller !  I enjoy capturing family growing up through my lens and I feel so honored that B family chose me again to create family’s memory this year! We started session at Lover’s Lane in Presidio, we were so lucky that there were no one there!!( usually this place is so popular with engagement, wedding, maternity and family photo sessions and it’s usually impossible not to have any people in background!!!)   then we headed to Potrero Hill to have beautiful San Francisco skyline!   Very classic San Francisco Portraits!  Mom ordered Holiday cards already !!!  First Holiday cards order for this year!  Enjoy the pictures, B family!  

 

What a beautiful family!  I went over Ava’s beautiful house in Redwood Shore in South Bay, San Francisco!  I LOVE life style family session, it is so special to create family portraits at their own home. Ava is able to sit up on her own now and it is my favorite age to photograph!  So much love in this family and I was able to capture lots of fun moments for them 😉  Ava is on my Baby Collection Package and I will be photographing her and documenting her growing up till she is 2 years old! I have the best job in the world! S family purchased collage of wall portraits and I can’t wait for them to display in the house!   Thank you for choosing me, S family!

 

First of all, I LOVE the ” dressed up outfits look” in ranch!  Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek is such a fun place for baby, children and family session!   It provides such a fun backdrops,  Enjoy the pictures, S family!

Something I always wanted to do!  Life Style Family Session at client’s house on weekend’s morning and I finally did it last Summer!  A family is a good friend of mine and also a wonderful client. I have been photographing them for last 3 years! Also our kids are best friends 😉  I was back in San Francisco from Japan last Summer and I was super excited for this session. Weekend morning is perfect for this type of this session because daddy is home and family get together at breakfast and lots of family play time after.  I got there early in the morning to sneak in their son, Callum’s room then fun pancake time started!  Below, you will see how much fun I’ve had there from all pictures!

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!!

Amazing sunset!

What a beautiful Family!  This session was done back in August as you can see from pictures!  With family’s busy schedule, we finally finalized order last week;-)  Mom loves the first pictures of their little girl doing peek-a-boo, those gallery wrap canvas collage are going up in her nursery ♥  She has such a beautiful eyes and I LOVE her curly hair!  We also put together family collage to be displayed in their hallway.  I have family pictures displayed in my house and those make me smile every time I see them and that’s what I want my clients to feel.  I want my work to bring people joy, happiness and smile ♥   Thank you for a wonderful session and looking forward to seeing you again soon for Fall Session for Holiday cards !!

This is my 4th session with D family in last 1 year and half!  I met them for the first time last Summer for maternity session for their 2nd baby, Lilly then newborn session, then Lilly’s 1 year old session last month and now Holiday session!  It is so great to be a part of their life documenting their milestone.  Each and every session is special and I love them all 😉   When we did Holiday session a few weeks ago, Lilly just started walking so we go some cute shot when she was trying to balance and walk and that’s mom’s favorite image!  Big brother Landon is so sweet with Lilly and of course he loves playing with rocks and sticks during the session!  Thank you for such a fun session and can’t wait to show you beautiful Holiday cards from this session!
