Gorgeous boys! I first photographed these gorgeous boys last Holidays and I was so excited to photograph them again!  We had to reschedule the sessions 3 times!!!  due to the rain and we finally got together and we had a perfect fall colors background at one of my favorite park in Walnut Creek!  Dad couldn’t make it due to his work schedule… but we had so much fun!  Boys were so great, we were running around, throwing leaves and lots of laugh 😉 Lots of my clients are babies and toddlers so I enjoyed photographing school age kids!   Thank you, M family for choosing me again!

Pregnancy announcement Photo Session!  I had such a fun time photographing Nicole & Brett for their pregnancy announcement session in Walnut Creek! They have been keeping this news secret from friends and family and they were planning to announce the news at Thanksgiving! Nicole and Brett brought ” BABY” balloons, baby shoes and ultrasound pic to make this session even more special!

I met C family a few years back to photograph 1st Birthday Party, It was a Korean Style Birthday party, Dol in Oakland and it was like a wedding!  I’m so glad mom contacted me again for their 2016 Holiday Family Photos! We met at Heather Farm in Walnut Creek, it was a perfect cloudy day and we got lots of fun and cute shots!  Boys look so cute in their adorable sweaters. I love the bright colors in winter!  We had so much fun running around and we finished session with kid’s favorite, bubbles!  Thank you  C family and I hope you are enjoying your photos!

Here’s one of my favorite family client !  They are on my baby collection and I have been photographing them since last Summer when Coco was in mommy’s belly. This is our 3rd sessions together and I absolutely LOVED it! We started off at their home in San Francisco then headed out to Embacadero. I LOVE shooting at home especially for baby so that we can create some naked baby shots.  Baby look adorable as is.  Simple and classic.  I also LOVE heading to the place that are special to the family. They go for walk on Embarcadero all the time so that’s where we decided to shoot.   It makes great memory. I can’t wait to see her again when she turns 1 !

*Coco graduated from my baby collection!  She is ONE and walking!  We went back to Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco where we did the maternity session!   It was another beautiful cloudy day. I LOVE everything about this session ! Fall colors and smiles !  We all had so much fun!  Baby changes so much in first year and I feel so honored to be there to document the story of Coco’s first year through my lens since she was in mommy’s belly, 1 week old, 8 months old then now 1 year old!

I was so excited to see M family again for their newborn session!   My newborn session is done at comfort of client’s home using their living room, bedroom, nursery as a backdrop.  When it comes to newborn session, I like it to keep it simple to capture the ” LOVE” of the family. Classic and timeless. No complicated poses or props, just as is.  My goal is to create portraits that clients can look back for many many years, portraits that bring everyone smile and cherish them forever. Thank you M Family for another beautiful session. Can’t wait to see you again at your family’s next milestone!

* Added their 2016 Holiday Family Session photos! Look who is walking all by himself! I LOVE documenting baby’s first year.
