It has been over  a year since I opened my photo studio in downtown Walnut Creek and I l love it that I can offer studio and outdoor session together in one session!   We started C family’s photo session at my studio with mom and dad’s business headshots, then family portraits,  I recommend dressing up for studio session and casual outfits for outdoor !  We drove to a park near studio and did more fun and candidate outdoor portraits!   Kids enjoy running around outside !  C family purchased 30 x 40 gallery wrap canvas to display in their living room and I can’t wait for them to hang it up on their wall! It is so nice to have a a beautiful family portraits displayed on the wall.   Thank you C family for a fun session!

Look at this beautiful house !  I visited C family in Burlingame to photograph them with their new addition to their family, baby #3, Nolan!   The house was filled with beautiful natural light and we created beautiful family portraits together.  Nolan’s grandpa was visiting from Hong Kong to meet him , I love creating photos of grandpa and grandkids. It is so special .  Thank you C family for letting me capture this special moment for your family and thank you for signing up on my Baby Collection Package!  I’m looking forward to photographing Nolan again soon!   










Life Style newborn family photographer, photo session in Burlingame, Palo Alto, Redwood shore, Menlo Park, Los Gatos, South Bay. Studio located in downtown Walnut Creek and available to travel 😉


This is my third photo session with this beautiful S family!  Our first session together was when their little girl was 8 months old!  We photographed at their beautiful home in Redwood City as a life style family session last Spring, then we did holiday family session with grandparents and mom’s brother family at Stanford University.   Mom is expecting baby #2 soon so we got together at Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto for maternity family photo session.  Elizabeth Gamble Garden is one of my favorite location to photograph as there are always beautiful flowers blooming,  I love this location especially for a family with a little girl.   We created many beautiful photos with flowers in backdrop!  Mom looked absolutely stunning and I LOVE her navy flower dress!!!   I can’t wait to meet their new addition to family soon!!    I LOVE documenting family’s history and documenting family growing through my lens.
