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!

We recreated a photo from 100 years ago.   I photographed G family last Spring in Walnut Creek and this time,  Grandpa is in town visiting family for Christmas and he brought this photo from 100 years ago.  It’s a portrait of grandpa’s mom and her grandma which was taken 100 years ago and grandpa wanted to recreate a photo with his daughter and his grand daughter.   Mom brought in desk set and book to my studio, after making some changes in posing and lighting, we successfully recreated a portrait.  These photos will be passed on to next generation and it is my honor to be a part of it!

One of my favorite family to photograph!  Mom is the owner of TUTU School in Walnut Creek and Montclair and I have been working with TUTU School for last couple years for their BRABO BASH recital photos and event photos!  I LOVE TUTU School. Such a magical place for a little ballerina!  We met at one of my favorite spot in Walnut Creek for their Holiday Family photos.  I LOVE the navy and yellow theme outfits!  We run around and laugh so much together and you can see that we have so much fun at photo session!

This is my 7th year photographing S family !  I LOVE LOVE capturing family growing up through my lens.  Our first session together , Ellie, the younger daughter was in mommy’s belly!  Since then we did newborn session, many many milestone sessions, Holiday sessions, and First communion in Danville, Birthday parties, etc!  As I spend my photo studio in downtown Walnut Creek early this year, I suggested S family to do dress up holiday family portraits at studio first then go outdoor for more Casula look.  We went to Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek. It’s a very popular photo location for children, family, engagements  sessions and especially this time of the year, I see many families creating family photos for Holiday Cards there!    Mom always put together the perfect outfit for family and I LOVE them!  Very stylish!    I can’t wait for a next session in 2018!
