Sneak Peek for L Family {San Jose, San Ramon Dol/ Korean First Birthday Photographer}

The past 6 dols/korean first birthday parties I’ve shot have been for little boys. Little *K* broke the boy streak and seemed to love every minute of being a Korean princess. She kept everyone on their toes as she pondered what her future was going to be, going back and forth touching the stethoscope and the book, but ultimately she decided to go with wealth! Happy first birthday *K*!

Sneak Peek for C Family {Mountain View, San Ramon Family Photographer}

The C family did a fantastic job coordinating (not matching) their outfits for a day of fun in the sun at Shoreline Park. The blue and yellow color scheme worked  beautifully against the bright summer sun and greenery. C family- thanks for letting me spend the morning with you. It was worth navigating through all the duck poop!

This was my first full family session using my new Canon 5d mark III and I’m in love! (sorry canon 5d. you have officially become my backup camera.)

Sneak Peek for Y Family {Sunnyvale, San Ramon Dol/Korean First Birthday Photographer}

Once again, Lolliparty did a fabulous job decorating the party. Little *P’s* mom made sure all the kids were entertained and had a section of the restaurant filled with crafts and activities just for them. A fairy princess even came for face painting and magic.

*P* is so blessed to have 3 older sisters who adore him. It was so cute to see them cover him with kisses and guide him on which item to choose for the doljabi. His entire future will be planned out by all his sisters!

beautiful pics as always- loved how you captured all the fun moments of the party!

Family time in San Francisco

I’ve been working every weekend and haven’t had much time with the entire family. *A* even asked me, “Why do you keep leaving?” After I heard that, I made sure to book a whole Saturday just for my family. We spent the day in San Francisco exploring Golden Gate Park and Chinatown. It was so much fun but the girls were exhausted from all the walking. The weather was beautiful and we ended the day blowing bubbles in the front yard. What a perfect day.

Sneak peek for K Family {Danville, San Ramon Dol Photographer}

Handmade dol towers (dol go im)

New York themed first birthday party! The K family moved to NY but came back to Danville to celebrate Baby A’s dol. NY was incorporated into every detail of the day, from the centerpieces to the metro card doljabi raffles. I love to see how parents personalize their child’s birthday to reflect their family and it was so cool how the K family shared a bit of their new lives with all their friends and family.
