G family was introduced to me by my client, their kids go to the same school together!  I’m always so grateful for referral! G family is celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary and they wanted to have their pictures taken at their house in Oakland with their beautiful Magnolia tree!  I’m glad the Magnolia was in full bloom on the day of the session, too!   Family photos are the perfect way to celebrate their wedding anniversary!     Mom and Dad ordered beautiful gallery wrap canvases to display in the house and 10×10 custom designed alum for keepsake!   Thank you G family for choosing me to capture a special milestone for your family!

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!

I have been taking photos of Copeland since he was in mommy’s belly and it was so fun having him over at my studio in Walnut Creek for his 1-year-old milestone family session!   He looks super adorable and handsome in little Jenie and Jack suits!

We started the session at studio first then headed to park nearby in Walnut Creek for fun and casual outdoor sesison!  This is very popular to combine studio & outdoor session together in one session so that you have a studio look and outdoor look all together in one session!  We can include a business headshot for dad and mom if needed!

Naomi is such a sweet girl!  She came to my studio in downtown Walnut Creek for her very first photo session with mom and dad! She slept through most of the session.  At the newborn session, we take lots of breaks during the session to feed the baby and cuddle the baby to keep the baby comfortable throughout the session.  I can’t wait to photograph her again!

I love trying out the new location!  I met T family at Arizona Cactus Garden at Stanford, Palo Alto. I got little lost to get there first but surprise to see all these cactus at Stanford University! I have been photographing T family for about 9 years now, every year, we try new locations and mom requested this location!   I enjoy watching family growing up through my lens.   Thank you for another fun session, T family!

I was so excited to see M family again for their newborn session!   My newborn session is done at the comfort of the client’s home using their living room, bedroom, nursery as a backdrop.  When it comes to newborn session, I like it to keep it simple to capture the ” LOVE” of the family. Classic and timeless. No complicated poses or props, just as is.  My goal is to create portraits that clients can look back for many many years, portraits that bring everyone smile and cherish them forever. Thank you M Family for another beautiful session. I can’t wait to see you again at your family’s next milestone!

* Added their 2016 Holiday Family Session photos from Markham Nature Park in Concord. I love the Fall colors!   Look who is walking all by himself! I LOVE documenting baby’s first year.

* Added their 2019 Holiday Family Session from Heather Farm in Walnut Creek! Kids are all so grown up!!

I love it when clients chose me to photograph them again and again over the years.  I was excited to hear from K family again to document the kids growing up.  Lila is turning 6 and Noah just turned three!   It was such a fun session and mom and dad purchased photos to display on their wall space at home!   We already talked about next session and we are going to the beach with Golden Gate Bridge !   Thank you, K family for a fun session and letting me capture the milestone for your family!

 

 

This is from previous session in December 2018.

Aloha! I have been photographing S family for the last 9 years,  they are one of my very first clients when I started this photography business!   Every year, we meet at beautiful locations to create their family memories and for the stunning Holiday Cards!  This time, we met in MAUI!!!!     Grand Wailea is such a beautiful resort and I truly enjoyed taking photos there!  Their 2019 Holiday Cards are beautiful and I’m so grateful that I got to travel to Maui for a family session from San Francisco! It is an honor to document girls growing up through my lens.

Mahalo!
