Moreover, I had always enjoyed taking photos here whether it was with me and Erick or with my cousins. When Edelissa, one of our Spring clients (Blog Post HERE), inquired another time for […]

I’ve been thinking about ways to break it to my closest friends about our BIG NEWS. We needed to get them together without them suspecting anything. I figured, some of them have always wanted family photos taken by me but have not been able to all these years I’ve been doing this professionally. So, Erick […]

We met Angela through our very good friend and previous wedding client, Lan. She was one of her bridesmaids. She reached out to me for family photos with her and Ezra’s new bundle of joy, Grant. They wanted to go back to the place where they said their “I do’s” – Schram Memorial Chapel in […]

I met this beautiful family (Eric, Edelissa, Evan and Sofia) through the many events I’ve attended of Charity’s, who happens to be her first cousin. They were either through her bridal shower, wedding, housewarming, baby’s baptism and so on. Needless to say, she’s seen the wide variety of photos I’ve taken of her cousin. I […]

A couple of months ago, we had a pleasure of taking Joy and Vincent’s maternity photos, not knowing whether they will welcome a princess or a prince. Several weeks later, Baby Amelia came into this world. We’re so happy to be able to take their Family Lifestyle Newborn Session at their cozy home. Her nursery […]

I’ve been photographing this beautiful family since Simi was still inside the belly. I’ve known Sam and Stephanie since grad school and it’s such an honor to witness a lot of milestones in their relationship. I was there when they said their I do’s. Shortly thereafter, I got to see them buy their 1st house […]

This is one honest blog entry of what a family session may turn out like. Jim and Tiffany just got done posing for us, for hours, for a beautiful project we came up with.
