>Sneak Peek for Mrs. P: {San Ramon Photographer}


Another bride blog post! I had the opportunity to showcase Cece Cole’s awesome hair/makeup styling and I approached Mrs. P to see if she would do a bridal shoot. She is newly married (2 months) and lucky for me, she jumped at the chance to wear her gorgeous dress again. Don’t you love her pumas? Judy- The camera LOVED you. I had such a hard time picking out my favorites!

>Sneak Peek for SC: {San Ramon Maternity Photographer}


After rescheduling once due to rain, I met SC and her family at Baker Beach in San Francisco. No rain this time, but boy was it cold! It was really windy and I was freezing although I was all bundled up. SC was a rockstar – she didn’t even complain about the cold and was up for anything I suggested. Wish I looked this good when I was 7 months pregnant!

>Family Time {San Ramon Child Photographer}


Recognize him? He’s my handsome model on all my marketing brochures and gift certificates. He’s also my nephew!

This weekend was a packed celebration for Father’s Day and K’s 5th birthday. We combined both sides of the family and with 9 kids running around, it was a loud and fun event. I am so fortunate to have all of my family and my in laws nearby. The cousins (7 girls and 2 boys) have such a great time together and it reminds me of all the fun family gatherings I had growing up with my cousins. Here’s a few shots of my nephews, L and A and my niece, L. Aren’t they the cutest??

>Sneak Peek for Lee Family {Bay Area Family Photographer}


Trying to kiss mom without laughing

Love E’s effortless jump – she looks so joyful!


K is ready to be a model!

Love this family portrait. I need to photoshop your dog into this!

Such a cutie!

I am SO thrilled to share a sneak peek for the Lee Family (I just realized I’ve shot 5 Lee Families so far!) We’ve had to reschedule their family session multiple times due to various reasons and I am so happy that we were able to meet this past Saturday. I was warned that the weather in Mountain House was cold and windy but by the time I arrived for our evening session, the winds had calmed down and the weather was absolutely perfect. The kids were so easy to photograph – all 5 of them! I put them through a lot of running and jumping and there were no complaints! (at least I didn’t hear any):)B&C, I am so blessed by your support and friendship. Thank you for your prayers and constant encouragement. You have a beautiful family – C, I hope I was able to make your dream come true!
