>Sneak Peek for So Family {Fremont, San Ramon Dol Photographer}


I photographed Little *R’s* first birthday party/ dol at their house last weekend. It was a very intimate get together and *R* seriously looked like a royalty in his hanbok. I was so happy when there was a break in the rain and we were able to head outside for some shots. Happy 1st birthday *R*!

>Mother’s Day Mini Sessions


I’ve heard from a lot of moms that they don’t have many photos of themselves with their kids. They are the ones who are always behind the camera! Moms, here’s your chance to celebrate your relationship with your children, your own mom, or both!

Mini Sessions Include:
20-30 minute session
10-15 images in a private online gallery
1 8×10 print
16 wallets

As long as the weather cooperates (rain, rain go away!), the sessions will be held at an outdoor location. Email me for more details.

>Happy Birthday Middle C! {Pleasanton Birthday Photographer}


Table all set for the princesses
Look at this cake!! All the girls were in awe. Seriously – it’s prettier than my wedding cake.
About to blow out her candles – so special!
Every princess needs an armoire filled with dresses.
 I had to include this picture of Big C.  Isn’t she beautiful???

A princess party – what more can a 5 year old ask for? Actually, at the party all the princesses went around saying what they would wish for if they had one wish. Birthday girl’s one wish in the whole world was to have a dog – C and B – will the next family portrait include a furry four legged animal?

>My Star of the Week


My little poser – can you tell she already loves jewelry?
Running down the little hill
Staring at a little roly poly – love those little hands!
A beautiful flower we spotted during our walk

My *K* just received extremely important news. She found out that her turn to be “Star of the Week” at school was coming up! She has been waiting for this since the first day of school. She has been begging me to help fill out her poster which will help her classmates learn all about *K’s* favorite things. There’s also a spot to include a picture of herself and *K* kept asking me to take a new picture of her to add to her special poster. Of course, my little diva needs an updated headshot.

>janet, omg K is so cute! i love the picture of her running! she looks so happy! in the first picture, she really looks like cousin d :). heehee…my girls loved being star of the week too…such a special feeling.

>Laundry treasures


As a mom of 3 girls, I do laundry A LOT. I’m not good about checking each and every pocket before I put the clothes in the washing machine and I’ve ended up washing endless amounts of tissue, tanbark, and even my husband’s wallet (surprisingly all the bills came out squeaky clean without a tear!). This week, I’ve been finding little trinkets at the bottom of the washing machine every time I did the laundry. I knew instantly that these must be K’s as she has repeatedly told me that she “loves jewels and anything sparkly.” I’ve been setting them aside and today I realized that I have a nice little collection. As soon as I brought them downstairs to photograph, my little K screamed, “those are mine! I put them in my pocket!” She let me take a picture and then proceeded to glue and tape each piece together. Being 4 and finding such great joy in the little things is precious. I hope we can all take the time to find a bit of happiness in the small details around us.

Edited to add: Ok, my husband read this and laughed hysterically at how corny I was being but it’s true! Seriously- shouldn’t we all take the time to appreciate the small stuff? ok, now he’s really going to gag.
