Mini-Sessions 2017-Oct. 29, Nov. 4, Nov. 25


What if you could get most of your Christmas/holiday presents DONE and figured out with just ONE decision?

Well, EVERYONE knows grandparents/aunties & uncles/god parents/etc. LOVE photos of you and your kids.  So why not make the decision to do a mini-session today?

My sessions are quick and FUN! 

It’s the no hassle way of getting a great family picture for when you want to make your holiday cards.

Think about that, not having to search through image after image, looking for flattering pictures of you and your family.   Think of all the time (and headaches) you will save, and isn’t that the most precious gift of all?  You can check some gifts off your list, AND have your holiday cards ready when December hits.  Plus, you end up with adorable pictures of you and your family.  It’s a WIN-WIN!

It’s $99 for a 15 min. session,  plus $47 in product credit.  You also get a canvas ornament that I custom make for you.  Sessions are in San Jose.

If you can’t make one of these dates, contact me to see if we can work out another date.

Seriously, how cute is this?

Sandra’s Corporate Head Shot

Sandra works for a start up in San Francisco and didn’t want the run-of-the-mill Silicon Valley corporate head shot.  She has a big personality (effervescent comes to mind, think of a champagne bottle being popped) and we sure had fun when taking these photos!  We tried several poses then finally decided upon these two.  I like both the shot looking at the camera and the one looking to the side.  More and more, clients are choosing to have non-traditional corporate head shots, to show their personality and to stand out from the crowd.  I love how her new head shot (and profile picture) turned out!

Sandra’s bright pink shirt against the crisp white background is a great selection.  Note her necklace-it is enhancing and not distracting at all (not too showy!)  Sandra, thank you for coming to me for your Silicon Valley corporate head shot.


Lauren’s Senior Portraits-2017

We took Lauren’s Senior Portraits in Los Gatos at Vasona Park.  It was a beautiful evening, just before the end of the school year.  Her mom wanted a few shots for her graduation cards (of course, they ended up with a lot more than cards!)  We went all over the park, from the picnic area, to the lake, to the upper park, to the train tracks.  We even took a few shots in front of a garbage enclosure (shhh! don’t tell anyone-can you tell which shot it is?)  Lauren is a Willow Glen High Senior, Graduating 2017.  She even brought along her best friend who helped fix her hair/clothes for me and made Lauren laugh.  I highly recommend bringing a friend.  It is such a great experience, why not share the fun?

I love this shot with the water behind her.  It reminds me of the Golden Gate Bridge-kinda hard to believe it’s Los Gatos.

It took a long time to get this shot as there were multiple people walking dogs, stopping to look at the view, etc.  But we were patient and it was sooooo worth it.  Don’t you agree?

Lauren and her best friend pose for my signature senior shot.

Don’t worry, this is a miniature train track that stops service at 5pm.  There is no danger being on the tracks.


This is in front of the garbage-you can’t tell can you??

I had to grab a shot with mom and her little girl-priceless!


Almaden Valley Remodel-Real Estate Photos

Check out this San Jose remodel.  This project has a modern sensibility with mid-century details.  Cooking would be a dream in this large  kitchen.  And did you see the bathtub in the master bathroom?  Looks sooooo relaxing.  This project was designed by Go2DesignStudio of Saratoga, one of my favorite design studios.
