I have been photographing D family since their daughter was in her mommy’s belly!  We have done many sessions together and this time, mom wanted to include grandma to do a three generation session for Mother’s day!  I LOVED the idea.  We met park in Walnut Creek and had lots of fun creating beautiful portraits!   These photos will be treasured for many years to come.


I LOVE LOVE LOVE creating headshot for baby models at my portrait studio! My studio is convinietly located in downtown Walnut Creek.   Best of luck to these adorable models!! 


I’m loving photographing in my new studio space! I have beautiful natural light and it creates beautiful portraits. I enjoy photographing every age of women and create the most beautiful photograph they have ever seen of themselves!

I was so excited to see Blaise I again!

I’m so happy with his success! Good Luck with your exciting modeling journey, Blaise!!

The very first photo I took of him at shoot, it took him about 1 minute to warm up,  look at his gorgeous blue eyes!!

What a fun and happy family!  Mom contacted me to schedule a family session as their second daughter started noticing there was no photos of her photos on the wall….!  With second, third child, you take much less photos compare to the first child and I’m glad mom contacted me!  Life gets so busy but you have to take time to create family photos otherwise, you have no family photos to look back to remember these sweet moments.  Kids love seeing their family pictures on the wall and study shows that kids feel more secured to see their family photos displayed.   We had so much fun!  It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Walnut Creek ( I LOVE California weather!!) and this is one of my favorite location in Walnut Creek for family session .  Thank you M Family for choosing me to create a memories for your family and I can’t wait to see these pictures up on your wall!


I have been enjoying photographing their little girl Emily since she was 3 months old, now she is a busy toddler!  Isn’t she adorable?  I LOVE the color of Spring and it provide such a beautiful backdrop for family session, especially for little girl. so magical and dreamy 😉  I enjoy telling family’s story through my lens.  I capture those little moments that you would like to remember.  I’m so happy to find this beautiful location this year in Walnut Creek!  P family ordered beautiful two gallery wrap canvases to display at home and digital files for keepsake . I can’t wait to see those canvases up on the wall!  Thank you, P family!
