I’ve got request of photo sessions with mustard flowers recently.  Last year, there was a beautiful flower field in Walnut Creek but flowers weren’t there this year…. so, I decided to take a trip to Napa this afternoon with my friend to scout a location 😉

We drove through Napa to Helena and saw lots of flower field.  My son napped on the way so it was a perfect timing to pull over and took some pictures!   I love how flowers looks in pictures and I can’t wait to bring clients back here for next few weeks!

Isn’t she just beautiful?   Baby girl, Lila came to my studio last week for her newborn portraits.  She has 2 order brother and sister and they were both so gentle with their baby sister 😉   We’ve got lots of adorable images and I’m so happy the way everything turned out.   Lila signed up for baby collection so I will be photographing her when she is able to sit up in around 7 months then when she starts walking around 1 year old.  I love baby collection babies because I get to watch and document how they grow up through my lens 😉

I was over their house yesterday and we decided to create a ” family memory wall”  where we are going to add couple gallery canvases  from each session to their dining room wall.  I’m so excited and it’s going to be a beautiful.    I can’t wait to for a next session!
