Miss O - Portrait Session - Hayward Japanese Tea Garden

I met Miss O and her mom at the beautiful Japanese Tea Garden.  Miss O’s grandma made her amazing dress and it was a perfect fit for the location.  Here are a few of my favs from the session!

Beauty Queen Dropout - A Fashion Line

Sharmila is starting her own fashion line.  It’s called Beauty Queen Dropout.  When asked what type of woman wears your pieces she stated “powerful,confident and a little outside the box.”

I loved the two dresses and jacket she had created and I can’t wait to see more!

Thomas Joseph - Newborn Session - San Jose

He’s finally here!  You may remember Duncan & Zoe, Thomas’ parents from the gender reveling maternity session a few months ago.  Well, Thomas has made his appearance  two weeks early because he was so excited to meet his mum and dad.  Duncan & Zoe are so excited to be parents, you can tell with every touch, lullaby and kiss.  I can’t wait to capture this little guy growing up.  Here are a few favorites from his session.

The Walker Family - Family Portrait - Crissy Field

I shot the Walker’s portrait session about 2 weeks ago, while the rest of the bay area was enjoying summer, Crissy Field decided to pull a 180. Which in my opinion I was happy to see.  I love the fog and overcast sky (it makes for nice even light, perfect for portraits).  The cold weather did not stop us!  Here are a few fun shots I captured of the Walker Family.  Enjoy! 

Lukas - Newborn Portraits

Lately I have been surrounded by the cutest newborns.  Lukas is a little over 3 weeks.  He decided he didn’t want to stay asleep for his portrait session.  So he stayed awake and gave me all types of cute faces.  Look at all that hair!  Here are a few of my favorites from his session. 

Maya & Elise - Glamorized Portraits - Fremont,CA

So there are times I get to do fun, awesome themed shoots.  This happens to be one of them!  Maya & Elise’s mom wanted to do some fashion forward images of her two cuties.  Pay close attention to the latest accessories they have on!  Super chic!  Check  out some of the shots I captured.

Liam Karl - Newborn Session

The more and more I photograph newborns, the more and more I consider ONLY wanting to photograph newborns :).  They are so adorable and tiny.

I have been photographing the Osmundson Family for over three years.  This June they welcomed a second son to their family!  Liam was such a sweetie.  He stayed up for a while and then decided having his picture taken was boring and went to sleep on us.  

We even got some sweet shots of Liam and his older brother Ethan.  I can’t wait to watch little Liam grow into a handsome boy like his brother.  Enjoy the photos from his session! 

Mr. & Mrs. Pappalardo - Palmdale Estates - Fremont

Meeting at work, sparked a romance that has been tested by distance and time.  Frank joined the air force early within the relationship that sent him miles away.  As soon as he was stationed Simone packed up and moved to be with her love in Washington.  These two joined their families and friends at Palmdale Estates in Fremont, CA to exchange vows.  Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day!  Enjoy!

Cat & Sy - Engagement Session

It is not often that I come directly home from a shoot, upload,save ,edit and then blog.  But with these two, how could I not?  Enough with the talking here are the images from their engagement session!

Cat & Sy save lives (they’re nurses) and met at work.  The rest is history and they will be getting married in a few months.  I enjoyed learning about how they met, what they do for fun and how Sy thinks Cat loves their dog more than him :)

Isn’t Cat gorgeous? 

We can’t forget about Sy, he is quite easy on the eyes too.

Congrats on your engagement you two!  Enjoy your wedding day!
