Family of SEVEN!  We met at one of my favorite park in Walnut Creek in gorgeous afternoon!

When there is a little one in the family, usually all attention goes to the youngest sibling and this little Sophie was a center of the attention!  She is adorable and how lucky she is to have big brothers and sister who love her so much!   We had so much fun during the photo session! This family portrait will be beautifully displayed at their fire place with my gorgeous gallery wrap canvas!   This family session was also special for the family as it was the very first family session since little Sophie was born!   Thank you mom and dad for choosing me to create special memories for your family!     Are you interested in scheduling your family photo session?  Please email for more info !



I LOVE my repeating clients!  Last year, we did extended family session with Irene’s husband side and this year, mom wanted to do for her side of the family!   Mom has two sisters and when Irene requested a family session for her side of the family, I immediately thought it would be so much fun to have sisters session at studio in Walnut Creek then met up with the rest of the family members at the park!   Sisters had so much fun at studio, can you tell?    It is so special to have these portraits,  sisters are there for each other.  I also offered individual personal branding / headshot session for each sisters.   After studio session, we headed to park near studio and got together with their husbands and kids!  Families invested in beautiful framed prints to display at home!    Please email me at for family session inquires!

So cute!  Little Olivia came to my photo studio in Walnut Creek  with her two big sisters, mom and dad! I have photographing girls for TUTU School recital Photos last couple years then we did Holiday maternity Family Session last year in Walnut Creek! Olivia wanted to see what was happening in studio so she was awake most of the session.  Look at her big beautiful eyes!  It is nice that mom takes time to bring baby #3 to photo session to capture this big milestone.  After 1st child, #2, # 3…. get less photos taken as life gets super busy for family.   Welcome to the world, Olivia!  I look forward to photographing you again at  your next milestone!



Happy 1st Birthday , Maverick!

We headed to one of my favorite park in Walnut Creek for more fun family portraits followed by cake smash session.   The cake was a handmade cake by mom 😉        Family purchased beautiful framed collage set to display in their home !  I offer hand ready finished product such as gallery wrap canvas, framed prints and custom design album for keepsake.
