>Happy Mother’s Day


Baby #1: *A* 

Baby #2: *K*

Baby #3: *E*

Don’t laugh!! These are definitely not the most flattering pictures of me but I love them because they are the first pics I have with each of my children.  I was pretty heavily medicated with my first so I’m grateful for the pics I have to remind me of what happened! Do you remember holding your baby for the first time? Do you remember looking into your child’s eyes for the first time? I remember. I also remember the non stop crying (from me and the babies!), the explosive poops, the painful nursing every 2 hours, the love/hate relationship with the breast pump. I also remember the cuddling, the first words, the giggling, baking together, and sweet bedtime prayers. I hope I never forget these things.  Thank you A, K, and E for challenging me everyday.

>wow, danny takes pretty good pics too! :) thx for sharing such precious moments janet!

>My princesses


*K* lined up her pink accessories.

Love these heels. 

*A* was pretending to sleep so her prince could come and wake her up. Unfortunately, it was just me she woke up to.

Love the elbow action here.

 *A* and *K* started playing dress up last night as I was doing the dishes. They rarely ever play dress up anymore so I was surprised to see how much fun they were having. It was so cute to see how imaginative they were being and of course, I had to stop what I was doing and go grab my camera. I made the mistake of calling *K* by her name and she insisted I call her “Princess Belle” all night. I tried to have *E* dress up and take a pic with her big sisters but she had such a big tantrum that I gave up. Yes, photographers have these moments too.

>Sneak Peek for Lee Family {Dublin Family Photographer}


I had the pleasure of spending a fun Saturday afternoon with the Lee family. Although it was windy and chilly, we braved the outdoors (yes, I think I’ve mentioned a few times how wimpy I am with the cold) and headed out to the Shannon Community Center and Park in Dublin. We were confined to a few areas due to a wedding being held there but everyone was so flexible and easy going that we were still able to get some great shots. Like many families, the Lee family didn’t have many pictures of all 4 of them together. We focused on a lot of group shots as I think it is really important to have a good family portrait. I also had to embarrass A and D and get some couple pictures as they haven’t had professional portraits since their wedding almost 10 years ago! Thank you Lee family for being such an inspiration to everyone – including me!

>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.
