Abigail & Vaughn | Bay Area Golden Field Engagement Photos

For their engagement session, Abigail & Vaughn wanted a beautiful open field, and what better place than the Arastradero Preserve with its rolling hills blanketed in tall, golden grass? The timing was actually perfect that day — it was the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival, which meant a beautiful full moon that greeted us at dusk! You can see it below in the photos 🙂 [ read more … ]

Simran & Amita | San Jose Municipal Rose Garden Surprise Marriage Proposal

Simran had been planning his romantic Labor Day weekend surprise to his girlfriend Amita for more than a month, and contacted us after deciding on the San Jose Rose Garden. The Rose Garden is really great this time of year, as it’s covered with flowers of all colors in full bloom. The couple strolled through the garden taking lots of flower photos (Amita had actually gotten a new camera!) while we followed loosely behind. When the time came, under the soft sunset light, Simran got down on his knee and popped the question! Congrats you two — you’re too cute!

Vivian | Los Gatos Lifestyle Newborn Photography

Meet one-week-old Vivian! She is such a great little model with a good temper and she sure knows how to smile at the camera! Bonnie and Judson were constantly amazed by Vivian’s daily change. Let’s see… Vivian lost her umbilical stump to reveal her new belly button on the day of the photo shoot, and she had just learned to put fingers (sometime her whole little hand) into her mouth and make funny sounds with it. She has so many facial expressions and I got some really cute ones!

Bonnie and Jud’s puppy, Miss Georgia, joined us at the end of the session and she was soooo happy but very gentle towards Vivian — it melted my heart! She gave out lots of sweet kisses and we got some great family pictures for the four of them 🙂
