Unravel Mamas Night Out: San Jose

Saturday, April 9 2016

If you have followed me for the past three years, you know that pediatric cancer rocked my good friend, Libby’s world (and mine by extension) in a devastating way by taking her beautiful six-year old daughter within three months after she was diagnosed with DIPG: a terminal brain tumor. Libby and her family are slowly learning to live each day and each experience without their oldest. Yet amidst it all, she found a way through her pain to try push through, and do her darnest, to do everything she can so that our living children are not touched by cancer. Unravel Pediatric Cancer is the manifestation of that effort, and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for pediatric cancer[…]See more from “Unravel Mamas Night Out: San Jose”

When C and her family arrived for our mini session, D was in a super shy and clingy mood. Ok, 4 year old; hasn’t seen me in awhile — totally normal. But I gotta say, I was pretty thrilled over how quickly he got over his timidness. This kiddo went from hiding behind Daddy and clinging to his leg to making silly faces at me and begging for me to take more pictures of him by the end. It was awesome! Thanx Mom and Dad for going with the flow and helping work this out. This session took place on the campus of San Jose City College. It was my second of three sessions, on the morning of what started[…]See more from “Bay Area Child Photography: Color”

Bay Area Family Photography: Biggest fans

These two are some of the biggest Bay Area sports fans I know. They love the Giants and the 49ers with open hearts. Last year when I photographed their family we had planned to do at least one family portrait in their sports jerseys. We had a blast of a session, and time ran out before we got to it. I kicked myself for awhile afterward, so this year I swore I wouldn’t let that happen again… and we started with the sports gear. This mini session was my last of the day at the San Jose City College campus. It rained so hard that morning: even my first session of the day got rained out, so we hid under[…]See more from “Bay Area Family Photography: Biggest fans”

Can you say “rain”? Because boy, did it! We had scheduled this family portraits session for back in October, and it just so happened to be the ONE day in October that it rained. I prepared the second time around: and moved us to the San Jose City College campus. Rain or shine (preferably shine!) this was going to happen!!! Rain again, it did — it actually was pouring, and pouring hard right as these guys arrived on campus. I guess they were just destined for rain. I don’t mind — I actually loved how the soft pink colors and fuzzy white vests on the girls played off the soft-gray walls of the building. I love this family. T is[…]See more from “San Jose Family Portraits Photographer: So very rainy”
