Sneak Peek for C {San Ramon Family Photographer}

Finally starting to get some fall colors around here. This photo session was supposed to be all about C but I was able to get beautiful mom into a few pictures. C’s mom first contacted me last year but due to my full schedule I wasn’t able to fit her in for holiday portraits. So glad we were able to meet this year!

Sneak Peek for Y-C Family {Santa Clara Family Photographer}

Back at my alma mater! I scheduled a session at Santa Clara University with the Y-C family and was thrilled to find out they got married at the Mission church.  Have I mentioned already that I love shooting in locations that have special meaning to my clients yet? 🙂 It’s been quite a few years since I’ve gone back to SCU and was surprised to see how much has changed. The campus is still as beautiful as ever. As an undergrad, we would all joke that our tuition went to maintaining the gardens and the palm trees.

I haven’t seen Little A since I photographed him last year and at this stage, a year makes a huge difference. He was on the run this time – and boy, is he fast!  I had to include a picture of him just as he was about to take off. He’s got that runners pose all set!  He did have his quiet moments too – love his tiny fingers holding a flower for mom.

Sneak Peek for L Family {Los Altos Family Photographer}


In previous years, I had all my clients meet me at the same location and did mini sessions back to back. This year, I gave my clients the option to choose their own locations and I love that they are choosing places that have special meaning to them. The L family got married at the Los Altos History Museum and what a treat to return with their 2 boys for holiday portraits. The garden was so pretty but I think the best part for the boys was the tractor!

Sneak peek for F Family {Santa Clara Family Photographer}

Miss K and Little T are all grown up! They were all set to pose and smile for me. I think it’s time to get the modeling contracts ready!

I love casual sessions at the park. Where else can you have a romantic kiss squished in a tiny picnic table and then hop onto a boat for a portrait with your kids? Kids get to play, parents get to play, and that makes for a happy photographer.

Gorgeous shots! Ok, maybe not of us squished in the tiny table, but the kids and Daddy!! Love love love it.

Sneak peek for C Family {San Ramon Family Photographer}

I met the C family at Crow Canyon Gardens this weekend and it is such an unexpected retreat right off of a busy street. The fruit trees and the creek provided such a gorgeous backdrop for this family of 5.  The early evening light was so pretty (seriously, I think I said that at least 10 times during the shoot) and I’m so glad we were able to shoot these right before this upcoming week of rain. Thanks C family!
