Happy 10th Birthday K!


10 years ago today, I remember going to my 37 week appointment and being told to go straight to the hospital because K was ready to be born! Unlike her big sister who took 22 hours to be born, K was out with 1 push after 6 hours of labor. That’s been very indicative of her personality – fast (whether it’s walking, talking, or eating, I’m always telling her to slow down!) and easy going. She had no problem with me taking her outside in the hot sun for some portraits and even when we spotted a mouse at the park she still put on a smile for me. I’m so blessed that I get to see that smile daily. Happy birthday K!

San Ramon Family Portraits: C Family




A beautifully styled family all in shades of pink? Check. A garden setting bathed in gorgeous evening light? Check. What more can I ask for?!! 🙂  The C family is a dream to photograph. They are so sweet and easy going and are all naturals in front of the camera. Look at little T with her gold crown – she wore that like she was the queen!  S, your strength and beauty just shines through. Thank you for the chance to photograph your family for the 4th time!


Blackhawk Birthday Party: Zach


What a fun birthday party! Z and his friends had non stop action going from the trampoline, sliding down the inflatable slide, to water gun fights in the pool.  I have no doubt that all the kids conked out immediately after they got home. I was tired from just watching! Z’s event was also a going away party as they are preparing for a move. I’m so happy I got to capture this special time with his closest friends before they move out of state. Happy birthday Z!
