Right before I left on my anniversary trip (more on this soon, I promise!), I met with L and her guys for an extended family photography session. I’m always curious how people hear about me and my photography work. It’s usually one of the first thing I ask when a new client reaches out. In L’s case, though, I knew… our youngest, and their oldest shared years together in the same preschool. Even though our little guy doesn’t go there anymore, he still talks about his buddy all the time. He considers him his best friend and “writes” him cards. As a matter of fact, the morning of our session, before I pulled out my camera to get started, I[…]See more from “Belmont Family Photographer: Extended Family”

I may have said it before, but I find the photography community to be remarkably supportive. I participate in a couple of online forums where we exchange ideas, learn from one another and generally help each other grow. I’m joined by professional and hobbyist photographers from across the Bay Area and the world at large. You’d think competition would be a factor (at least at the local level), but instead of tearing each other down, I am thrilled to see our groups stand each other up! One way we help each other out is filling in for one another when a prospective client asks for a portrait session and we’re not able to do it. Maybe you’ve experienced this looking[…]See more from “Los Altos Family Photographer: A gift for dad”

It’s been a long time since I’ve visited Gamble Gardens! As a matter of fact, my last photography session there was just about exactly two years ago. In going back, it was interesting to see how Gamble Gardens has changed. Throughout the year, the blooming flowers, of course, change. I love the diversity the grounds offer in the span of a few months. Yet, time of year aside, as I did my regular walk around the location, I noticed that the willow trees at the back of the property had also gone away. It excites me to see Gamble evolve, but also a little nostalgic for all the families, scenes and memories we’ve captured in that space. E and C[…]See more from “Palo Alto Child Photographer: Before and After”

April ended with a fantastic family photography session celebrating these twin boys’ 1st year. I photographed their last few weeks in residence of M’s maternity session; I had the privilege of being one of the first to bid them welcome to our world, and you saw their newborn session. As part of their post-natal care they were asked answer a questionnaire, including the question “How will your lifestyle change?” As a family friend, and having the opportunity to observe it, I can tell you the changes have been big. There’s so much that goes on with twins (from figuring sleep out with two babies, managing child-care help and tracking milestones) but these guys have done such, SUCH an amazing job.[…]See more from “Los Altos Family Photography: How did their lifestyle change?”

The Bay Trail starting up around Coyote Point in San Mateo, and extending down through Redwood Shores is one of my favorite places for a week-end walk. Last year, if you were walking those paths on a week-end morning, chances are, you walked by me. I love it for it’s serenity: being by the water is so soothing for me; and for it’s interest: there are just SO many cool things to see along this path. I usually park close to the Gilhead Sciences building on these walks. It was how I got to know it, and quite frankly “lust” after it. I’ve admired this building every time I’d start a walk there, and I’ve been itching to photograph a[…]See more from “Foster City Family Photographer: The right family”
