Family time in San Francisco

I’ve been working every weekend and haven’t had much time with the entire family. *A* even asked me, “Why do you keep leaving?” After I heard that, I made sure to book a whole Saturday just for my family. We spent the day in San Francisco exploring Golden Gate Park and Chinatown. It was so much fun but the girls were exhausted from all the walking. The weather was beautiful and we ended the day blowing bubbles in the front yard. What a perfect day.

Sneak peek for K Family {Danville, San Ramon Dol Photographer}

Baby A’s mom hand cut the banner of the New York Skyline

Handmade dol towers (dol go im)

New York themed first birthday party! The K family moved to NY but came back to Danville to celebrate Baby A’s dol. NY was incorporated into every detail of the day, from the centerpieces to the metro card doljabi raffles. I love to see how parents personalize their child’s birthday to reflect their family and it was so cool how the K family shared a bit of their new lives with all their friends and family.

Love how clear and vibrant these are. Great job, Janet!


Sneak Peek for Baby C {San Jose, San Ramon Newborn Photographer}

6 days old! Oh, the joy of being a baby photographer where you can fully enjoy a newborn without sleep deprivation. I barely took pics of my own girls when they were this young – I was in a daze! Luckily for Baby C, her parents are full of energy and mom is already almost fully recovered. There was no complaining about lack of sleep or changing diapers and new mom and dad were grinning from ear to ear. I mean, how can you not smile when you look at Baby C? I couldn’t narrow down the images for this sneak peek – she’s just so adorable!!

Sneak peek for L Family {San Jose, San Ramon Dol Photographer}

Beautiful wish tree

He went straight for the gavel!

Little *L* is one! First birthday parties are so special and *L’s* family made sure his party was an extra special day for him. He looked especially handsome in his hanbok and even showed off his newly attained walking abilities. My favorite part of the party was when *L’s* sister taste tested his cake. From the look of it, I think it was delicious! L family, thank you for letting me be a part of your celebration. Can’t wait to see *L* grow up to be a lawyer!


Sneak Peek for AC {San Jose Maternity Photographer}

You are stunning! Hair and Makeup by: Betty Phung

I had so many favorites from this maternity session! *A* and I knew each other waaaay back – many 20 years ago? Luckily facebook brought us back together! I had so much fun and laughed so much during this photo shoot. *P*, thank you for following all my instructions and not complaining (too much).:)

I’m so honored to have captured this special time as *A* and *P* prepare for the arrival of their first baby. The location of the photo shoot was changed last minute to their home, and I’m so glad it was. I love doing sessions in my client’s homes as it adds that personal touch to the images. Can you believe that mom to be is due in 4 weeks? I sure didn’t look like that during my last trimester!
