I LOVE creating a headshot for baby and kids model! I enjoy capturing their personality and energy and create a competitive headshot in the modeling industry for a future rising star!  I’m a preferred kids headshot photographer for several top talent agencies in the Bay Area and San Francisco.

As a mom of kids model, I truly understand the importance of headshot in the industry and I also understand how parents feel to get kids ready for a photoshoot.  My son, Leo has been modeling for the last 6 years since he was 4 years old.  We have been many casting calls, auditions, and photoshoots together.  I enjoy this modeling journey with him and we are lucky to be in the bay area, San Francisco where there are many chances and opportunities are waiting to happen and it could be yours!  Some of the big brands based in San Francisco are Pottery Barn Kids, Gap, Old Navy, Gymboree, Tea Collection, and many more exciting commercial and print projects!

I get so excited when I see my headshot clients in commercials, magazines, etc!   I feel happy for them like I’m their mom!!   I have many repeating clients who chose me to update their headshot every year and I enjoy watching them growing up through my lens.

I offer baby headshot at my studio in downtown Walnut Creek and kids headshot in the outdoor natural light setting in downtown Walnut Creek and I’m available to travel to San Francisco and South Bay.  I offer business headshot, personal branding and family portrait session as well, You can combine family photos and kids headshot together in one session, too!  Please feel free to ask me any questions and looking forward to working with you!
