The weather forecast was cloudy and when it got closer to session, I saw some rain coming down……  But we decided to give it a try in a little rain as some of the family members were visiting from out of town.  Those colorful umbrellas gave a nice color in cloudy sky!  About 10min into the session, rain was getting harder so we decided to continue next time when family members are in town.  This is a beautiful park over looking water, so I can’t wait to get together again!   Enjoy the preview!

We spent afternoon at the park in Benicia today.   I have a family session scheduled at this location and I wanted to come check it out before the session.   Here’s a picture of my husband, I was going through pictures I took today, I realized this is the first time I took picture of him just himself since we had a baby who is almost 19months old.  I thought it was nice 😉

Thank you for all your help and support everyday!

I was waiting for this day for long time! and I was so happy to photograph E’s 3 months old portrait today.  I’ve been photographing her ever since she was in her mommy’s belly and now she is 3months old already! wow, time just goes by!!    She looked gorgeous in her red Valentine dress and looked like a princess in pink tutu 😉  I love them all!  and of course, big sister I was such a fun to photograph, too.  Enjoy the preview!    Thank you for fun afternoon!

What a fun I had to photograph my son’s 18months old portraits! Now crazy busy holiday season is over, I finally made a time to capture my son’s portraits.  I can’t believe how fast he is growing!  Thank you Leo for fun time and thank you daddy for chasing him after with me!

My baby’s grandparents were visiting from Florida to cerebrate last Christmas.  They were here for 5days and for that 5 days, it had been raining, cold and plus my baby was sick and I was giving up what I wanted to do, to take a nice  photo of my baby and his grandparents together.   But at very last minutes, the day before they left, sun came out in late afternoon and my baby was feeling better.  I was out running errands but I rushed home, dressed my baby, told everyone that we need to take a photo right now before sun goes down!   So, I managed to get couple shots that makes me happy .  It was so nice to see my baby and his grandparents playing and laughing together.

My new year resolution ~  take more family photo ~     Happy New Year, Everyone!
