Bronies Regional Park- Maternity September 2019

First off CONGRATS to the parents to be!  Super excited for you both.  This shoot was originally scheduled for this last weekend.  Koji is in the military and when finding out that he was going to be in town for a brief visit, I was so happy the stars aligned for us to bump up the photos one week earlier.  Amanda's dress just fits this background so well.  While this is their first baby they do have a fur baby which Luna would walk in and out of some of the photos.  ☀

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.
