When Brenda told me she wanted to have a romantic beach setting for her engagement shoot, I immediately was game! With the weather we've been having, it's been hit or miss with the sunshine so I definitely had my worries approaching the shoot.Read More

Shooting a maternity session was such wonderful way to celebrate love on Valentines Day this year! Celebrating the love between a married couple and the love of their expected child is really special and I'm so happy I got to photograph this part of my sister and brother-in-law's journey together. I've said it before and I'll say it again; pregnancy is just such a beautiful thing. My sister would probably disagree with that statement after all the "morning" sickness she's experienced and the major change to her body, but as her little sister, I just admire her so much. Just look at her...she's so beautiful! She opted for a whimsical look, wearing an adorable flower crown which worked so nicely with the field we shot at in the Calaveras Hills in Milpitas. The sun was hitting the hills just perfectly and made the shoot look so magical. Her baby bump is still small, but growing day by day. I'm so happy for her and her husband Marcus and I am just so anxious to meet their baby boy in May. This is will be not only the first nephew in our family, but the first grandchild! For my parents who raised all girls, this will be a fun change for them to have a boy in the family. I can't wait to be an aunt! Plus I'm really looking forward to shooting some awesome newborn shots! ;-)
For anyone who follows my photography blog, you might recognize Pichetti Winery as one of my favorite places to shoot. It's just such a sweet spot and it's got beautiful scenery. Granted, you can't tell from the photos, but it's definitely a work-out to go hiking from each spot to the next! In the end, I think it's worth it and the results are worth the sweat! Monica and Brian were such troopers and I had a lovely time chatting and getting to know more about their lives. Looking forward to shooting their wedding in October at the Cinnabar Hills Golf Club in San Jose. I imagine it's gonna be a fun party! Thanks for great shoot you two!
I had such a fun time traveling out to the coast to photograph this engagement shoot in Watsonville! Becky has been a long time family friend and I was honored that she wanted me to be her wedding photographer. In fact, her wedding is just around the corner! Looking forward to shooting it on June 14th at Roaring Camp Railroads in Felton, CA. Mitchell and Becky were such good sports trekking around the property to find the best spots and ideal lighting, not to mention avoiding the poison oak! We got some beautiful shots on the beach as well and I'm so excited to share them with you. Check back soon for their wedding pictures!
