>Sneak Peek for Moon Family {San Jose Dol First Birthday Photographer}


Yeah! A smile from M- the birthday boy!

Little M’s mom hand made these dol towers!  

How cute are these place cards?? 

The delicious candy bar filled with blue and yellow sweets.
M hiding out & drinking behind the projection screen. I love it that he’s only wearing a onesie and argyle socks.  
The cake was a piece of art!

M layed down and got comfortable when it was time for the doljabi. 

After some coaxing, he got up and grabbed the sheet music. 

M celebrated his 1st birthday in style at Maggiano’s. The Moon’s (no, we’re not related) put together such a beautiful party filled with lots of hand made touches. You could tell just how much love was poured into every detail. C, you are AMAZING! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Before the portrait session, the number one question I get is “what do I wear?” To answer that question, I started the What to Wear Guides (I know, I know. I think I’ve only done 3 in the past few months. I promise I’ll create more once I get some down time!) Once the online proofs are delivered, the”what do I order?” dilemmas always come up. I hope these wall display guides help you visualize what an impact large prints can have in your home. I love gallery wrapped canvases because they look like personalized art pieces. Though, there’s something about black frames that adds such a nice elegance to prints. I wish I had more wall space in my house – those darn windows!

>Sneak Peek for Hahn Family {San Jose Family Photographer}


Sleeping babies.

I kicked off the start of my holiday sessions with the Hahn Family at the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Jose this past weekend.  There were so many great areas to take pictures and the boys got to explore new territory – grass and rocks.  I expected to have my hands full with twin boys but C and M were so unbelievably well behaved throughout the entire session. They even fell asleep in their parents arms at the end!

>I have twin boys too and I love that you captured them napping in their parents arms at the end… That is priceless.

>Pumpkin Patch Fun {Outdoor Natural Light Photographer}


Took the kids to the pumpkin patch last weekend. It was extra special this year since it was E’s first time.  I thought she would be excited but she burst out crying as soon as we put her down on the hay next to the pumpkins. It took her a while to warm up but she eventually started exploring and cautiously touched the pumpkins. K and A had so much fun running around and riding the train. It’s become a family tradition and I can’t wait for E to join them on the train ride next year.
