Sneak Peek for W Family {San Ramon Family Photographer}

familyportraitw1 familyportraitw2 familyportraitw3 familyportraitw4


The kids and I had a blast during this mini session.  Little R is my bff now!:)I love that moment when the kids realize I’m there to have fun and play with them.  All the reservations and hesitation they had about me melts away and their natural smiles come out! Of course, this is where I have to do silly things and embarrass myself…but hey, it’s worth it!

Sneak Peek for C Family {San Ramon Family Photographer}


Fall season is here! The kids were so cold during this photo shoot but we were still able to have some fun enjoying the beautiful garden. Who needs toys when there are pretty leaves to find everywhere? It’s so nice that many of my clients are including their parents for their portraits. I was very close with my grandma so it is extra special for me to see the grandma/grandchildren relationship.  A & M remind me a lot of my older girls – I used to dress them the same when they were this age too.  :)

Sneak Peek for P Family {Danville Family Photographer}

The last time I photographed the P Family, I was 9 months pregnant with #3. They were my last clients before I had E 12 days later.  Fast forward 4 years and I was able to run and jump along with the kids this time! Love seeing the kids grow up and being able to freeze these moments for mom and dad.:)

Pumpkin Patch 2013 {San Ramon Family Photographer}

blog774 blog775 blog776 blog777The girls look forward to going to the pumpkin patch every year, and I do too. There’s something about being in a field surrounded by pumpkins that turns you into a little kid. No, I didn’t knock over every pumpkin…but the thought did cross my mind.  Now the kids fully know the drill – first I get to take pictures and then they can go on the rides and then pick out a pumpkin to take home. We always decorate the pumpkins with stickers and sharpies but we’ve finally lost the battle and told the girls we can carve the pumpkins this year. I am fearful of the mess but I guess I can’t hold out much longer!

Sneak Peek for F Family {San Francisco Family Photographer}




It’s been 10 years since I’ve visited the Palace of Fine Arts in SF. I was there to witness C and J get married and how fitting that we return a decade later – this time with 2 kiddos and 2 dogs (and my hubby and 3 kiddos came along too). A lot has happened in those 10 years! I love capturing these milestones and I love having clients (and friends!) who choose to celebrate special occasions with portraits.  Can’t wait to come back here for their 20th anniversary!
