Izzy and Ellie, They are my favorite girls!  They are my very first client and I’ve been photographing them for last 3 years now!  It’s such a joy to watch them grow up.  Mom dress them in such a cute outfits and, she always find the best outfits that match with the location I chose.   We met at one of my new favorite park in Danville, I like how those line of trees look in pictures.  As most of you know, I’m moving to Japan for a year and looking forward to coming back to visit next Summer to  photograph my clients again 😉

Thank you for a fun time!



Lila turns 1!!   I can’t believe she is turning 1 already!  Where did the all time go?   This is my 3 rd time I’m photographing Lila since she was born.  Mom dressed her in RED before and this 1 year old milestone portraits, she decided to keep Red theme.  I love how red coat stands out in the trees.  This is my new favorite park in Danville !  I just discovered this park last week and loving it!  I ‘m curious to see how this park looks like in Summer!

Mom is so creative, she is creating ” family history wall”  in her family living room.  she has ordered 2 canvases from each sessions and after this session, she will have 6 canvases to tell a story of her family.  I really LOVED her idea so I’ve been suggesting to my clients and I’m starting one for my wall, too!   I love getting inspired from my clients!    Thank you for another wonderful session and can’t wait to photograph Lila again!

This is where I got married 6 years ago and one of my best friend, Ami  just got married there!  I was so excited to attend her wedding in Hawaii and I loved photographing this happy couple at exact same location where I had my wedding pictures done!  I was in Finance 6 years ago living in New York City and I would never thought I would be coming back to Kahala to attend my friend’s wedding and also creating a memory for them as a photographer. What a change!

Congratulations, Ami and Motoya!  Looking forward to seeing you in Tokyo!



I have photographed Aidin 2 years ago for his newborn portraits and I was so excited when mom contacted me for his 2 years old portraits!  Mom requested a session at Martinez regional shoreline Park  in Martinez, CA since they come to this park often to see ducks and they are moving to L.A soon, they wanted to capture this special moments at their favorite park!   It was a beautiful evening !  I LOVE the weather in California ♥   Enjoy the pictures, mom and dad!

Kids LOVE bubble!!!  and it makes such a cute pictures!


With grandma!


P family is one of the first family I photographed when I started my photography business about 2 years ago.  First time was for their older daughter, Aliya’s 1 year old session at Baker Beach in San Francisco, then maternity session for their 2nd baby, Kira at Rose Garden in Berkley,  Kira’s Newborn session,  Kira’s 9 months old session in Mustard flower field in Napa and this last one to complete her Baby Collection session was at Baker Beach!  Mom requested to do the last session at Baker Beach again since when we were there 2 years ago, it was foggy and we couldn’t see much of the Golden Gate Bridge.  It started off with little foggy but I was keeping my fingers closed and it turned out to be the one of the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen at Baker Beach.  Fog drifted away and we had a clear view of the bridge, too!!  We had so much fun there, walking on the beach, jumping from the rocks, running around, etc, everything was just perfect and I’m so happy with the images from this session ♥  I LOVE watching kids growing up through my lens and documenting this special time of their life and turned those memories into beautiful products that family will cherish forever. I’m creating album featuring favorites from last 2 years session 😉   and also gorgeous framed metal prints to be displayed in their dining room.   Yes, I LOVE my job!  There simply no words to describe how I feel while watching mom’s tears of joy and laughter as they enjoy images I create.  It’s more than a privilege to be able to capture their memories and, in the end, form a lasting friendship.  Life is full of magical surprises!  And creating art out of that magic is what makes my adventure the most rewarding experience I could ever imagine.  I am  grateful for the best job in the world, and I am grateful to have such an amazing clients like P Family!

Remember her??  This portraits was taken back in May when Jerrica was 7days old.  She was so sweet and we were able to create lots of beautiful newborn portraits!  And look how much she has grown!!    I had so much fun photographing her at the park in Concord with pretty leaves and trees in back ground.  Very Holiday looking which I LOVE!    I love love love photographing this age!   We designed beautiful holiday cards together, the very first Holiday card  as a family of 3!  Enjoy the pictures and Happy Holiday!

Here’s another fun holiday mini session from S family!   I enjoyed meeting new families at holiday mini sessions.  S family was so fun to work with and looking forward to seeing them again in the near future!  Thank you for joining me at mini session!  Enjoy the pictures!



Davin was one of the most calm 10days old I’ve ever seen!  Mom and Dad requested to do newborn session outside at the park, they wanted ” nature look”.   So we met at one of my favorite park in Concord and we were also so lucky to have gorgeous warm Fall weather!  I DO LOVE sooting outside, but shooting newborn outside could be little difficult as you want to keep newborn warm as much a possible to keep him happy!  Davin did so well throughout the session and we were able to try lots of fun props mom brought in 😉  I love all images and hard to pick a favorite from this session…  😉  Thank you for letting me capture Davin’s special time of his life. Enjoy the pictures!!


So cozy….

This mom and dad’s profession, so cool, isn, it?

Little turtle!!! How adorable is this?

So handsome!


What a beautiful family!!  When mom contacted me for the first time, she mentioned that their 2.5 years old girl has never been formally photographed and husband hates being in photos….so I was little nervous about this session.  But we had so much fun at the park running around together and I could never tell that daddy didn’t like being pictures taken.  I was able to capture so many sweet moments of this family.

Thank you for a fun time at the park!  H Family!



I love it when extended family members join the session 😉  We had so much fun at the park together, we were singing, dancing to capture Alyssa’s cute smile!  Alyssa’s just started walking, so all she wanted to do was to walk and that made such a cute picture! Mom is expecting a second baby in Spring and I can’t wait to meet their new addition to the family 😉

Thank you for a fun time and enjoy the pictures!!


She loved walking around but she also had fun playing in the leaves, too!

Baby’s first year is filled with milestones and walking is one of the big one!   She looks so proud of herself!

Love this one of showing mommy’s bump and Alyssa’s happy face!

So So sweet!

With auntie and grandma!
