Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park- Maternity *Sneak Peek- June 2019

Sooo excited to share this sneak peek!  Despite the hot temperatures in the Pleasanton (East Bay Area)...  92 degrees that late afternoon/early evening. 🌞 We still headed out to capture some beautiful shots first at the Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park and ended the evening at Alviso Adobe Community Park down the road.   💗

My Family- November 2018: Mountain House, CA

It is hard to take your own family photos.  I have hired someone in the past but sometimes you just want them now.  So I pull out the tripod and the remote and cross my fingers as I set up my family for some photos.  :)

Family Portraits- Mountain House, CA

Hooray for the rain and a breeze to come in and clear out the smoke.  I was scheduled to take family photos a couple weeks ago but due to the smoke we had to reschedule until this weekend.  This Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day with these fantastic trees with yellow leaves.  These family photos are perfect fall photos.  I just love their outfits.  💓  I love the photo of their kids looking at me while their parents are sitting on the bench.  I cannot get enough of the photo of just the parents sitting on the bench by themselves; those trees are a glowing background.

Art Photos- House of Doodle: Stockton, CA

"You are the company you keep" and "Your friends are a reflection of you".  We all have maybe heard either of these sayings at one point in our lives.  Well, I am hoping that is true, since one of my dear friends is an amazing artist.  
Alexis Villanueva of House of Doodle, isn't just a fantastic sequential artist she is a painter as well. (as well as a friend, auntie (below is a photo with her and my youngest son), etc) This weekend I visited her art studio to take some photos of her work.  
Check her out: 

Just a couple close up (do not want to give all the goods away), so if you want to see more please visit her.  😁

Jessica- High School Portraits: San Francisco, CA

So excited to share these photos.  I actually couldn't decide what to share since there were soo many that I just truly loved.  😊
Jessica do not stop perusing college, but I think you can do some modeling on the side.  😉
Couldn't have asked for a better day September day in San Francisco, except for the wind....  it is like it knows we are about to shoot and then it picks up and decides to give a glam windblown look we were not looking for.   Lucked out on some wonderful stairs, what a wonderful find when you are not looking for it.

Wedding Rehearsal Lunch @ Campo di Bocce- Livermore, CA

My brother in law had their wedding rehearsal lunch at Campo de Bocce- Livermore, CA.  Great food and loads of fun.  Before starting a friendly game I took a quick moment to capture a few shots of the brides ring.
