There were so many fun activities for the kids, from pony rides to a magic show with bunnies and birds. Lolliparty did a fabulous job styling the party with all the traditional Korean elements. Happy birthday Andrew! Thank you for letting me celebrate this special day with you!

>Sneak Peek for SR: {Berkeley, San Ramon Maternity Photographer}


I met beautiful mom to be, SR in Tilden Park in Berkeley. I was getting nervous while driving up the hill because the fog was so thick and the temperature dropped dramatically as I neared our meeting spot. Fortunately, the fog cleared and all that was left was a gorgeous setting for maternity portraits. I always say this, but I’m so lucky to have clients who are so stylish and pick the perfect outfits. SR is almost 8 months pregnant and looks fabulous!

>21 months {San Ramon Photographer}


E hides her hands behind her back when she doesn’t want me to hold her hand.

I realized today that E is now 21 months! In just a few short months, she’ll be 2 and my baby will be no longer be a baby. Ok, so she’s not really a baby right now but in my eyes she will always be “Baby E.” She is heading right into the terrible 2s and compared to some of the attitude that my 5 and 6 year old girls give me, the tantrums and crying don’t seem too bad! I took E out for a short walk today in hopes that a change of scenery would help her mood and she was so excited to ride her bike. Of course, I ended up pushing it most of the way while E wanted to be held!

>2011 Holiday Mini Sessions {San Ramon Family Photographer}


It’s that time of year. Not for vacations or back to school shopping. It’s time to start planning for holiday portraits! This year, I’ll be offering 4 mini session dates in October. Reserve your session time by the end of August and receive 2 complimentary 5×7 mounted prints of your choice from your holiday gallery. A $75 deposit is due to reserve your spot (applied to package).

Can’t wait to see my past clients – love seeing how much the kids have grown. Yes, I am that annoying auntie that keeps saying, “you’ve grown so much!” Excited to meet new families as well. Mini sessions are great to get a few special portraits to mark the end of the year.

2011 card designs will be updated in the gallery soon.
