>Sneak Peek for Lee Family {San Ramon Baby Photographer}


Looking so regal!
Wonder what S is thinking…

Little Baby S is the same age as Ellie. Well, technically Ellie is a whole 10 days older! It’s so cute seeing them develop and watching them interact with each other (mostly S touching E and E staring at her with the “Just you wait…” look!). S celebrated her big day last week and I’m so honored to be able to capture her 12 month portraits. As the baby of the family, she’s constantly showered with love from her brothers and sisters. I’m sure there is never a dull moment. For this session, mom brought just S and all attention was on her. She was completely at ease in the studio and gave me these model looks with those big eyes!

1 year sessions are so special – it’s such a big milestone when they reach that toddler stage. There’s excitement in all that is to come soon, like walking and talking. Maybe I’m just getting sentimental but I wish they could just stay little for a bit longer.

>Sneak Peek for Park Family {San Ramon Family Photographer}


Today is Thanksgiving and I have so many things to be thankful for. Yes, it’s Thanksgiving and yes, I’m working. I have been working non stop and I am so grateful to be doing what I love.  I am thankful that so many families have allowed me to capture their family portraits. I like to think that I’m not just taking  pictures but capturing the bond and the uniqueness (is that really a word? yes, I’m tired and SO full from eating all day) of each family.
I think it is appropriate that on this Thanksgiving day, I’m posting a sneak peek for the Park family who I am extremely thankful for. They have been a huge blessing to me and my family. Btw, notice the purple theme going on?:)

What a gorgeous family! 

Such joy.

Another rained out family from my holiday session on Saturday. The kids were so well behaved and I didn’t even have to do anything crazy to get some smiles. They were all naturals in front of the camera and each showed their distinct personality (love J’s tongue sticking out in the formal portrait!). G, how do you look so good with twins and a 7 year old!

The Lee family was inspired by my ‘Fall Family’ What to wear guide and chose purple and grey for their outfits- don’t they look great? We braved the chill and shot some pictures outside (yes, 50 degrees is FREEZING for us Californians!). By the time we all got into the studio, everyone was sniffling and we all defrosted with some hot coffee and hot chocolate. After we got movement back into our bodies (yes, we are weaklings when it comes to the cold), we ended with  a few studio shots.
B- after all the rescheduling and the hour by hour weather changes, I hope you had as much fun as I did!

>Sneak Peek for Lai-Yang Family {San Ramon Family Photographer}


I carefully chose 11/20 as the date of the last holiday mini session for the year. The weather was abnormally hot all week and then of course….it rained all night Friday and sporadically on Saturday.  The Lai-Yang family session was supposed to be held outdoors but due to the unexpected weather, we did a studio session before the big Cal- Stanford game. Enjoy your sneak peek! Now on to edit all the other family sessions.
