I wonder if she had something to do with the break in the much-needed rain storms we were having???

It was a gorgeous morning in Alameda, such a wonderful break from all the rain we have been blessed with. At 9 o’clock in the morning, the popular basketball courts at Washington Park were all but empty.

I wanted to show different sides of Crystal, in this very special session. The business side, the sexy side, and the […]

She walked nervously and gracefully down the aisle of a stunning and intricate cathedral, her eyes locked on her groom, her soul mate, her forever. This man standing before her was once a little boy that she saw during recess at a small private school in San Jose. Life had taken them on different paths, but […]

Congratulations on your engagement! Now it’s time to start the long and exciting process of planning the wedding of your dreams. After choosing the venue and photographer, the next crucial decision is often, “What colors do I choose?!?” After doing a bit of research and speaking with a few of my 2018 brides, I realized two things.

Her heart pounded as she slowly walked up the stairs to see her future husband for the first time on this, their wedding day. As she touched his shoulder, her smile couldn’t be brighter, and he was itching to see his beautiful blushing bride. As he turned, he broke out in tears, at the site […]

From giggling to the confused “what’s going on?” look, sweet Natalya’s personality shown through, even at the age of only 3 months. So sweet, so innocent, so curious…these are just a few of the characteristics I love of babies. As a Newborn and Family Photographer, I often only get to see these sweet little people, […]

Her beautiful gown hung down her back and softly flowed behind her as she walked to a rustic fence in beautiful Round Valley. She nervously laughed as I set her up for her first pose and stylized shoot. Even in the dead of winter, this beauty brought spring in full force. From her golden hair and porcelain skin […]
