Confident. Radiant. Beautiful. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Hana’s creative portrait session! When Hana reached out and inquired about a birthday session, I was ecstatic. I was even more thrilled when she mentioned that this was her first time booking a photoshoot for herself. Hana has been on […]

Hana’s Creative Birthday Portrait Session

In January, I hosted my Winter Minis & Mingle! I love my clients, and nothing makes me happier than getting them all together and having them meet each other. It was great to host mini sessions in a studio that would otherwise be a little too pricey for a single person’s session. Huge shoutout to […]

Winter Minis & Mingle – Studio Mini Sessions

When Meetu asked me if I’d be interested in a shoot with a few designer pieces, of course I said yes. Meenu is a model, dancer, actress, and corporate employee! She absolutely killed it during this session. I had the best time working with all of these wonderful vendors! We shot the first set at […]

Meenu – Designer Indian Clothing Fashion Shoot

When I moved to California, my first friends were creatives that I met on Instagram. Whenever I’m out shooting, I’m always telling a story about how awesome all of my clients are. That usually ends with, “oh, you should meet her – you two would get along so well!” A few months ago, I decided […]

Louie | Dachshund Pet Portraits at the Arizona Cactus Garden | Bay Area Pet Portraits | Bay Area Pet Photographer

At a first glance, you’d probably think these photos were done in the middle of summer. Surprise, we did these in FEBRUARY! It was so cold, but Emma is such a natural in front of the camera that you’d never know it was 50 degrees when we shot this 😅 To top it off, when we […]

Emma T – Halvorson Model Management | Spring Teen Fashion Shoot | San Jose Portrait Photographer

I met Alana through my good friend and client Sonia. We first met at her portrait session a few months ago (after she won an award for her film work!) When Alana reached out again to do a gender reveal session, I was so excited. Color bombs? Yes please! On top of that, I got […]

Alana Mini Gender Reveal & Family Session | Bay Area Lifestyle Photographer | San Jose Lifestyle Photographer

We chatted about what it’s like to move to a new city, education, and everything in between. Melissa graduated early, recently moved to San Francisco and is currently studying for her MBA! Her plan […]

Bloggers, photographers, and models from all over the Bay attended. Mission Loft has always been a dream space of mine for photography. Everything about the space is absolutely […]
