This is my 7th year photographing Takase Family!  First time I met Takase family, their son, Akio  was 1 year old then we have done sessions every year, including newborn session for their daughter, Mika!  I truly enjoy watching family grow through my lens.   This time, Takase family chose Stanford University for their 2017 Holiday  Card Family Session. Such a beautiful family and so much laugh and smile during the session!  I can’t wait to see them again! 

 

Family photographer in South bay, East Bay, San Francisco, Stanford University, Stanford, Palo Alto, Los Gatos, Burlingame, Hilsborough.

 

This is my second time photographing S family!  Our first session together was in Embarcadero in San Francisco for their maternity Family session.   I LOVE photographing in downtown San Francisco area, I love the urban look and it’s just so pretty and perfect for maternity, family and engagement session!  I was so excited when family contacted me to schedule their Holiday Family Session now as a family of 4!  They have moved to a beautiful home by Alta Plaza Park and they wanted to create holiday family photos there! I LOVED the idea  😉  Creating family photos at your own home is so special. I can’t wait to photograph this beautiful family again at their next milestone!

November 2017

Love H family!  I was excited to hear that mom was expecting second daughter and we had so much fun creating their maternity & 2017 holiday card photos at Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek!

The color of dress is my favorite color and it looks great on mom! Their daughter Colette has exact same birthday as my daughter, Erika , it’s such a cute age!!  H family welcomed beautiful baby girl and we just did a newborn session at their gorgeous new home in San Ramon and can’t wait to share them with you all soon!


November 2016:

I have been photographing Colette since she was a little baby and this is my 3rd time photographing H family! First photo session was at her house in San Ramon when Colette was about 4 months old, then we went to Blackhawk Plaza in Danville for her 1 year old milestone session then a park in San Ramon for her 2 years old / Holiday photos!  I LOVE watching my client grow through my lens. Colette has same birthday as my daughter and we met at mommy’s group when our babies were about 2 weeks old!  Thank you, H family, I look forward to seeing you again next year!

T family drove from San Francisco to Vasona Park in Los Gatos for their family Session!  They brought their dog, Kona to include in their 2017 Holiday card!   Their little boy, Kai and Kona are so cute together and those are mom’s favorite photos!  This family is Japanese and it is nice to see Japanese family at photo session!   ( I’m Japanese, too! )

My photo studio is located in downtown Walnut Creek! Perfect for business headshot, personal branding, baby and family portraits.

 

This is my third year shooting at this beautiful park, Vasona Park in Los Gatos and it’s such a perfect location for family photo sessions!  it started as super foggy day. I had never shot in fog like that before and I was little nervous how photos would turn out but I LOVE the finished results!  I think fog provides soft beautiful look in background!  The couple brought their dog to include in their holiday photos and it was lot of fun!!!   Some formal and lots of candidate sots of them playing.   So cute!
