photo shoot contest WINNER!!!

...and the winner is...

...drum roll please!!!


This was my 4th and FINAL shoot during my "San Jose" weekend. I have friends that have had their pictures taken at this park, but I had no idea that it would be a photographer's dream. So many different backdrops and endless opportunities.

The Washington's were so easy to work with
and came to the shoot full of ideas they wanted to try! Until now, I had no idea that 3 year olds even knew what college was...this little one is already talking about how she's going to college! Love it.
Thanks for finishing off my photo weekend in the Bay with a BANG!

PORTRAIT||the NOZIK family

During my most recent trip to visit my sister in San Jose, I offered military families a discount to have me shoot their family photos. It worked out perfectly and my weekend was booked! This was the 3rd shoot that week(end)-it started on Thursday-- and my first one on Saturday morning.
Isn't this shot above just perfect! I love the flag, so patriotic. This little guy was a ball of energy! He was definitely the one in control of the shoot and definitely adorable! I loved watching his parents interact with him. It's always great seeing what parents will do to get their kids to smile. He actually proved to be a great photographer as well! I let him snap a few with my camera.
Enjoy! Let me know what you think!

PORTRAIT||Rebecca and Mike

These images were taken on campus at UC Berkeley. I'd never actually been on campus at UC Berkeley and when Rebecca requested that's where we shoot, I was really excited! This is where Mike and Rebecca met and spent loads of time. I'm so glad that we could capture them in a location that was them! Luckily the threatening rain clouds didn't open up and poor down on us.

PORTRAIT||Paula for Sum of All Numbers

Marketing & Sales guru Paula is the newest addition to Sum of All Numbers,
a bookkeeping company based out of the Bay Area. Need a little help getting your books up to date and kept that way? Check them out here.

Paula was so great to photograph. She has a very welcoming personality perfect for her role with Sum of All Numbers. Even though she told me she likes photos of herself BEST when she's not smiling, I couldn't help but tell her to just brought her warmth to the surface! What a beautiful and spunky woman! Would you check out those eyes!

NEWBORN||precious baby girl

This was my 3rd newborn photoshoot ever!I guess the 3rd time really is a charm b/c I'm going crazy with ideas of how to shoot newborns now! My favorite thing about photography is that there is always something you can change to make the shoot more exciting and interesting.
The daddy, is one of my little brother's buddies from growing up and lived on our street. I was so excited to be able to take pictures of his precious baby girl.
Thanks! She's beautiful!

PORTRAIT||kristi and aaron ferre


from this .... this


I was lucky enough to be Kristi and Aaron's photographer when they got married and will probably get many more chances throughout my life to take more photographs of them. (This is sibling photoshoot number 2). They are so much fun to photograph! I didn't include their goofy--behind the scenes photos that shows that side of them...maybe later I'll do another post. (If you're lucky!) BUT I do love their LOVE! So in love! Woo!

--for Christmas this year I decided I would take pictures of all of my siblings (and their families) for my dad and far I've only been able to actually photograph 2 of the kids..ONE of which is Jonesy..a 5050bmx riding guru. You can follow him and his bike riding buddies on their blog here. I'd say he's got a pretty awesome gig. He gets paid to go all over the country and ride...all while encouraging kids not to do drugs! AWESOME!
