I did my first interior photo shoot at Bloom Retreat in Walnut Creek a few months ago and now those photos are up on their website!  It shows on each pages and also at this ” photo ” page to show them all together!  I’m so excited to see them there.  Just in case if you haven’t heard of Bloom, Bloom offer very relaxing environment for busy mom to take a ” break”.  They have kid’s daycare on site so while kids are playing, mommy get to take classes, massage, or simply relax in their living room with cup of tea.  I’ve taken Yoga classes there and I love it!   Mommy deserve a break and this is a perfect place!



Does she look so gorgeous?  Mom is expecting her 3rd baby in late August.  She told that they never done any maternity portraits or newborn portraits and she wanted to capture this special moment since she is not planning 4th baby.  They are expecting a baby girl, name ” Claire” and mom had such a cute idea of photographing her belly and name blocks together.  I love how the image came out and this is going to be displayed in nursery room with her newborn portraits together.  It’s going to look SUPER cute!!

I’m so excited for Claire’s newborn session and having lots of cute ideas 😉  Mom signed up for my most popular package, Baby Collection so I get to watch her growing up through my lens for her first year and hopefully years and years.

Enjoy the pictures!


These are the final products beautifully displayed in client’s house!!!

These pictures are from when I was back in Japan this past March. Cherry blossom was in bloom so we did some family portraits with those in the back ground.  I love Spring in Japan!   Mom is my best friend from Junior High and we’ve been friends for more than 20years!!  We’ve always kept in touch after I left Japan  12 years ago, I’m so grateful to have her in my life 😉  I had so much fun photographing her family.  Their kids are 2 & 4 years old and they are the sweetest boys!  Enjoy the pictures and can’t wait to see you again!

Happy 1st Birthday, Anderson!   We had such a fun morning together playing in water and bubble!   It’s hard to chose favorite from this session because I like them all 😉  He has gorgeous blue eyes and his smiles are just adorable.  I love to watch kids face expression when they play with bubbles.  They are always so curious and Anderson loved watching bubble pop, pop pop!   One of mom’s favorite image is from the one he is playing with bubbles and I love that image, too!  Enjoy the pictures, mom and dad and can’t wait to see canvas collage on your wall soon!
