Check out this beautiful couple!  Mom is due in mid August and she looks amazing ! I really enjoyed meeting them and photographing them at Yerba Buena Garden and Union Square in San Francisco. Couple requested modern city look for their maternity session and these locations were just perfect!   It was my first time shooting at Yerba Buena Garden, what a beautiful park in the middle of San Francisco.  We started there and walked to Union Square for more ” city look” portraits. Union Square is one of my favorite place to photograph  ( and of curse for shopping!) , all building,  heart object, atmosphere, it’s very San Francisco!    They have picked the name of the baby  girl ” Coco”  and she had custom shoes made by Pottery Barn Kids. Love the color of gold and also onzie with coconut print.  So cute!  They ordered 12×16 custom designed album made in Italy.  It’s going to be an beautiful album and I know when the baby is older, she will enjoy seeing this album  with mommy and daddy.

Isn’t she adorable?  Look at this chunky arms and legs.  I just LOVE them!!!  I had fun photographing M and her mom for her 8 months old portraits.  I LOVE the color of Roses in background. I’m looking forward to seeing them again for her 1 year old photo session and hopefully, daddy can join us next time!

G turns 1!  As my baby girl is turning 1 soon, photographing 1 year old has been my favorite!  Some are standing, some crawls really fast and they start showing their personality and I just LOVE photographing 1 year old !  1 year old is a big milestone for a baby as well as for mom and dad, and you want to remember these sweet and precious moments as a family.   East Bay Area, San Francisco has many beautiful parks, and I always have favorite place for photo shoot depends on time of the year.   This one ‘s one of my favorite for Spring session!    G’s cake smash theme was ” transportation”  and mom created all props and cake.  Amazing!   Enjoy the pictures , mom and dad!

I have been photographing Maya for last 4 years. This is her 6 years old milestone session and mom brought her ballerina outfit.  I thought that was a great idea!!  She is doing ballet since she was two, what a great way to create her special milestone photos! WalnutCreekChildrenPhotographer001 WalnutCreekChildrenPhotographer002 WalnutCreekChildrenPhotographer003 WalnutCreekChildrenPhotographer004 WalnutCreekChildrenPhotographer005 WalnutCreekChildrenPhotographer006 WalnutCreekChildrenPhotographer007 WalnutCreekChildrenPhotographer008
