I had an opportunity to photograph Bloom Retreat in Walnut Creek    I have been taking yoga class there every week and Bloom offers such a relaxing atmosphere for busy moms. You can takes classes, massage therapy, or simply just bring a book and relax in their living room with a cup of tea.  The best part is they have a kid’s room so while kids are having fun, mom get to relax and take a break from busy life.  The owner, Michelle asked me to photograph their ” room” to use images on their website as well as marketing materials.  It was my first time doing ” Interior photography” and I had so much fun!!  It is so different from  what I usually do, chasing around kids, and I find this very interesting 😉

I was part of their ” open house” event around Mother’s day and also Tea Party hosted by Hilarie’s Helpful Hints at Bloom.  At the event, I got to photograph lots of mom and their kids together.  As mom, we are usually the one taking pictures and we don’t have much pictures with kids, so at this Mother’s day event, I focused on photographing mom and kids together 😉 Kids will treasure these photos when they are older.

If you haven’t been to Bloom, go check it out!  It’s located in downtown Walnut Creek!  Remember, mom needs a break sometime  and we deserve it!

I love it when client comes back every year to photograph milestone of their kids.  I met Abbey last Summer for her 2 years old portraits,  and I was so excited to see her again!  This time, not only she looked more beautiful than last time, she had became a big sister.  Her little sister was just adorable, so smily and she looked super cute in the special pink outfit mom put together 😉 She was so sweet and I enjoyed photographing Eisen family again!

Enjoy the pictures, Mom and Dad!

What a beautiful family!  I met Chan Family to photograph their new addition to their family, Jeremy at their house in Piedmont.  There was a beautiful park right next to their house which was perfect for their session.  He was about 1 months and half, and at that age, usually baby is more awake but Jeremy was so sleepy during the session, so I was able to capture his beautiful sleeping face and also his adorable face with eyes open looking straight at camera when he is awake 😉 His big sister, Emma was so sweet to him and she LOVED kissing him which was really cute!  Enjoy the pictures Mom and Dad and thank you for choosing me to capture this special time of Jeremy’s life 😉

I LOVE every single image from this session.  The weather has been very nice and I love photographing baby outside in basket 😉  I had this set up ( the first image)  in mind for a long time and now finally I was able to do it!  I set up little flower garden in my backyard just to create this image and I loved the result!  Baby is only small and able to pose like this in first 2 weeks, so if you are interested in newborn session, please contact me before you have a baby so that I can reserve the spot for you!  Jerrica even showed us some smiles during the session ;-)You can already tell that she is going to be a gorgeous girl!   Jerrica signed up on my baby collection and I’m looking forward to photographing her again at 6 months and 1 year old!

Enjoy your precious pictures, mom and dad!

Happy 1st Birthday, S!  Mom contacted me to photograph Silas’s 1 year old portraits and she asked if she could have Silas’s grandparents together.  I love photographing kids and grandparents together!   I love the way grandparents look at their grandkids.  Those moments are so precious and so sweet.  Silas is always so smiley but sometime he shows very ” serious face”  which was just adorable 😉

It was so nice to meet you all and enjoy your pictures!!

 

 

Do you remember him??  It has been 18 months already since I saw him last time for his newborn session.  Mom contacted me a few weeks ago for Aidan’s 18months old portraits and I was so excited to see him again 😉  Since it was close to Father’s Day, Mom requested to do ” D-A-D” collage as a Father’s Day gift and it turned out so cute!  We run around the park, went to see the doggie, played peekaboo, etc.  18 months old is such a cute age to photograph 😉   I can’t wait to see him again when he turns 2!  Enjoy the pictures , mom and dad!

Congratulations, Rose & Gilbert!   I met Rose at one of my Yoga class and I was so excited when she asked me to photograph her and her fiance.  She wanted images to use for their ” save the date” for their upcoming wedding in September.

Gilbert brought his musical instruments and it was so romantic to hear him playing songs for Rose.   We had lots of fun and I l loved taking pictures of them 😉  Looking forward to seeing them again in near future!

 

This is my favorite!

It was a windy evening but the lighting was perfect 😉  I have been photographing Stacie’s family for almost 2 years.  My first session with them was her daughter, Malia’s 1 year’s old portrait, then 2 years old portrait last September.  As you can tell, Malia has the cutest clothes!  Now, they are expecting 2nd baby in August, we did a maternity session 😉  All Malia wanted to do was running around so I chased her everywhere she went 😉   I’m in love with this first image where she is kissing her mommy.  So sweet!  Can’t wait for a newborn session, we have lots of fun idea and it’s going to be so cute!    Enjoy the pictures, mom and dad!

 

Love this one!!

Happy 1st Birthday Amaru!   I photographed his 1st Birthday Party   in April, and after about 1 month later, we did a family photo session including his grandparents.  Mom requested to do a session on her birthday and she told me that family portraits would be a nice birthday gift for herself as she hasn’t done any family portraits for LONG time.  I thought it was really sweet.   At age 1, Amaru loves running around and I had fun chasing him after!  He also loved being up on grandfather’s shoulder.  Amaru got so excited at the beginning of session, so he took a quick nap to recharge later on…. then we started shooting again.  It was so cute to see Amaru’s sleeping face and meanwhile, I got to work on portraits for mom and her sister, etc.  Mom ordered gallery wrap canvas collage to display in her living room. These are going to look so beautiful! there.  Thank you for letting me photograph these special moments of your family 😉

 

One of my favorite of Amaru!

 

Isn’t this cute??  O-N-E !

This is the gallery wrap canvas collage that will be displayed at their living room.
