College Graduation Party | Saratoga, Ca

I was so delighted when this family called me to tell me that their daughter had graduated college and they were having a celebration for her.  Did I want to come photograph it?  Heck yes!  I originally shot this girl's 16th birthday party 6 years ago.  I can't believe how quickly the time has gone.  The party was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the people were lovely.  They had the biggest pan of Paella I have ever seen.  No joke.

A morning out with the boys

I've realized that as my older son goes into transitional kindergarten in the Fall, I will lose the ability to do morning outings with both boys together.  So hopefully this summer we can can get out and about and do some fun field trips.  Today's trip was to Emma Prusch Park in San Jose.  The boys enjoyed all the chickens and other animals as well as some time on the playground and running around in the large open grass area.

Family Shoot | San Jose, Ca

I love doing first birthday shoots because you never know what kind of cake eater you are going get.  Little "L" was very clean, but enjoyed her first bites of cake.  Older brother was even allowed to get in on the action and was so excited!  Having two boys myself, I always enjoy photographing little girls.  They have such fun dress up opportunities!

Family Shoot | San Francisco, Ca

I was so honored to shoot this lovely family because I've known the mom for many years.  I couldn't wait to play with her adorable children and they didn't disappoint.  If anyone knows what my husband looks like, you know I love a redhead!  Even though it was 90 degrees in San Jose, and 58 in San Francisco, we embraced the cold and had a fun hike through the park.

Cousin Shoot | Santa Clara, Ca

It's been forever since I've written on here, but I have a sweet post for today.  These two families got together to give their mom/mother-in-law a wonderful Mother's Day gift.  Photos of all of the grandchildren!  What Grandma doesn't love that gift?

Wyatt Turns One | San Jose, Ca

This little cowboy turned one a few weeks ago.  It was his first time having cake and boy did he like it! I never know how the baby will react when the cake is put in front of them, but he really got into it.  By the end of the shoot we were all wearing cake and it was delicious.  His very last picture looks like a Got Milk? ad.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I love Valentine's Day.  It's so fun with all of the red and pink and telling your friends and family how much they mean to you.  This year I had to tone it down a notch because most of my crafting tools are still in boxes.  I was able to eek out some Barefoot Contessa brownies and decorated tins for K's teachers and a photo shoot with the boys.

I finally just stopped trying to get a picture with the two of them looking at me.  It was impossible with all of those balloons to bop around.
