Isn’t she beautiful? Melissa is expecting her second child in a few weeks and she requested to do her  maternity session at mustard flower filed in Saint Helena which has been one of my favorite photo location in this time of the year!   I love exploring and discover new photo location for each season.  We had fun created beautiful images together to remember this special time of their life.  I’m so excited to meet their new baby soon and can’t wait for his newborn session, too!  Since mom signed up for ” baby collection”  I will be photographing him throughout his 1st year.  How fun!  I really do have the best job in the world 😉   We stopped by Gott’s in Napa on the way back for a dinner together.  Ahi tuna burger was amazing and malt milkshake was the best!

Congratulations and see you soon!!


Big sister to be…..

One  of my favorite!


A little princess 😉


I have been enjoying photographing Jason since he was 6 months old and he is about to turn 1 this weekend!  I love watching kids grown up through my lens and document their milestone.  As he is turning 1, mom requested ” cake smash session” which is the option for my baby collection package for part of 1 year old portrait session.  Mom told me that Jason likes Sesame Street so I arranged the cake with Elmo theme with pop and bright color from A Sweet Affair Bakery .  I had so much fun watching Jason eating and playing with cake!

Happy 1st Birthday, Jason and I hope you have a wonderful 1st Birthday Party!!

Yay, Cake!!

What a handsome boy!

Eating, playing, eating, playing…

And he is done 😉

Kaira, she won my little star session at Little Sweetheart Valentine’s Day  event last month and it was such a perfect timing because she was turning 3 in April so we did her 3 years old portraits right away!  When her mom told me what she was going to wear for a session, I started looking something pink and flower to match her outfit.   And look what I found!   This gorgeous cherry blossom tree 😉  Everything was just perfect, beautiful soft light, warm weather, and this pink parasol I brought back from New Orleans completed the look I was looking for.  She looked so pretty in her pink dress and her princess shoes.  ( that’s what she called her shoes!  )  She has the cutest smile, too!     Mom and Dad came over to my home studio a few days ago to view the photos and they ordered gallery wrap canvases to display over their fireplace.   I can’t wait to deliver them final products because my canvases are the best !

Thank you, Mom and Dad!   It was so much fun photographing your family!

Last week, I met Serena for her 3 years old milestone session at one of my favorite park in Concord. I photographed her last year for her 2 years old portrait and I was excited to photograph her again!  She had this cutest outfit and the little crown was just perfect since she wanted me to call her ” princess” through out the session 😉   We did lots of princess game, we pretend to go find a castle, prince, etc…. it was lots of fun!    She is a beautiful girl just like her mom!

Thank you for letting me photograph her precious time of the life, enjoy the photos!

Do you remember her??  She was a winner of Cutest Kids in Costume Contest  at HHH’s Munchkin Masquerade Parade last year.  As a winner, M family received a grand prize which was valued over $700 including session, gallery wrap canvas, and digital images CD.  M family requested to go to Baker Beach as they wanted some portraits with Golden Gate Bridge!  We had lots of fun together.  Timing was just perfect, I love the reflection in the water and the color of the sky.

I hope they enjoy their Gallery wrap collage on their wall!

Congratulations again and it was so much fun photographing your family!



Love love love this one!

A few weeks ago, I drove up to Napa area to find a Mustard Flower field and I was so excited to bring clients there for a session.  I met Y family at Little Sweetheart Valentine’s Day event in February, they brought their older daughter, Ella to my photo booth for her Valentine’s portrait 😉   I was so happy to see them again and we had lots of fun taking pictures with gorgeous Napa scenery in background.  Mom told me that they never had family pictures taken since older one was born for last 6 years, so I was very honored to capture their fist family portraits.  This session was also to celebrate their younger daughter, Rose’s 1st Birthday so it made it even more special!   Y family ordered lots of  gallery wrap canvases from this session and they are going to look so beautiful in their house!

Thank you for fun afternoon in Napa!

I enjoyed meeting Ashur!  My first impression of Ashur was his gorgeous blue eyes!  HIs mom contacted me to photograph his 1st Birthday Party but since I will be out of town that day, we did his 1 year old session at park in Fremont, and it was lots of fun.   Ashur loved playing with stick and I’m so happy that I got such an adorable photos of him with stick, too 😉  Once it gets closer to sunset, we moved to another part of the park with wooden path leading in the pond. It was just so beautiful there and one of my favorite is Ashur over mom’s shoulder.   Look how beautiful his eyes are!  This is my favorite time to photograph, around sunset, love this golden color and soft light 😉

Happy 1st Birthday, Ashur and thank you mom and dad for letting me capture his milestone!
