What a beautiful Family!   Mom has her own dental practice in Napa and she found out about my service through Contra Costa Dentistry in Walnut Creek where I have a huge and gorgeous family photo gallery wrap canvas displayed at entrance.   Canvas is from a photo session of the owner, Contra Costa Dentistry, Dr. Tiffany Ham .   

I LOVE Referrals.  Most of my clients find me through friends and I LOVE it! Big thank you to my amazing clients, too!

For M Family Session, we started at my studio in downtown Walnut Creek , we did beautiful family portraits in backight, and also business headshot for mom and dad!   Then headed to one of my favorite park near my studio and created more fun photos together!  Mom has invested in 5 beautiful canvases to display at her home. It’s going to look so beautiful.    My goal is for clients to have printed memory on the wall so that you can look at it everyday, give you smiles and passed down on generation.  Thank you for a fun session, M Family!

 

 

 

Saira and her mom and dad came from Fremont for her newborn family portrait session!   Saira is a beautiful sweet baby and I absolutely enjoyed photographing her and create her very first portrait! She even showed me some smile during the session, too! How sweet!    Thank you fo choosing me to create your family’s very first family portraits and I look forward to photographing you again at Saira’s next milestone!

I have photograph their little girl, Emily since she was baby, Emily came to all my themed photo sessions for Valentine, Easter, Father’s Day, Halloween and Christmas  for last two and half years, and family sessions.  This time, mom requested  a family session at iconic location in San Francisco as they are moving to Florida.   We started at Presidio for forest look then headed to Baker beach to create family portraits with Golden Gate Bridge in background.  So many memories together and I’m sad that they are moving across the country but we both love traveling so we are planning to meet up at beautiful location next year for next family session!
