They are my very first family I photographed when I started my photography business 5 years ago. Since then, I photograph them every year, sometimes, couple times a year. I enjoy documenting family grow through my lens 😉   Recently, they moved to beautiful new house in Danville and we did they holiday photo session at their backyard. I love it when grandparents join the session ,too!  Pictures of grandparents and grandkids together are so precious. Can’t wait for next session!

I LOVE visiting client’s house for newborn session. Using client’s house as a backdrop makes newborn session even more special.  Brooklyn was 6 days old when I photographed her, she looked so adorable and her big sister, Amelia was so sweet to her! I LOVE capturing ” connection and emotion” in the family. I believe those pictures are the one you treasures the most.   Thank you for choosing me to photograph this special milestone of your family!

I am grateful for all of your business, but even more importantly for the friends you have become I hope you had a wonderful holidays and looking forward to a wonderful 2015!

Finally, my baby  Erika is sitting up!  I was waiting for her to sit up to dress her in this pink outfit I falling love when I saw this in store a few months ago!  Around 6-9 months is such a cute stage to photograph!  If you haven’t had any professional photos done and have a 6-9 months old baby, this is the perfect time!  Baby is so  smily and happy! touching the feet, chunky legs, etc. everything is just so cute!   Happy 7 months old to my beautiful baby, Erika!
