Anytime: Karen

Karen and I have been waiting a long time to do a photo shoot and I am so glad we finally got the chance to do it. Karen braved a little bit of rain to get some great shots! We had some fun with this shoot, and I tried to go in a different direction for some of the photos.
Karen: you are absolutely beautiful inside and out. I am so blessed to have you as a friend. Thanks for the opportunity to shoot you and I hope you love the photos!

Loooove these shoes, love this bridge!

This is def a favorite!

Karen's sister Rachel came along to the shoot and we managed to get her in front of the camera a few times! (And she looks great, huh?)

Love this series

Karen, you are GORGEOUS!


A little different for me, but I like it!

Another favorite!

Karen is always laughing just like this..

There's nothing like having a sister, trust me! These two are so cute

Helloooo I love this wall!

Sooo cute!

And to end it off.. Karen looks fierce!

Karen and Rachel, thanks so much for spending the afternoon with me. I had a blast! Hope you had fun and that you enjoy the photos.


Maternity: Rebecca

One year ago, they were embarking on a new chapter in their lives. They were coming together to unite for the rest of their lives. As they began the journey as a married couple, they were excited and enthusiastic. And today, they embark on another new journey. This new chapter in their lives revolves around their baby, affectionately referred to as "monkey."

Rebecca and George are absolutely the sweetest. I have known Rebecca for ten years, and I was blessed with the opportunity to document this portion of her life with maternity photos. We had a great time shooting these photos, and I love the effort they have put into making a home for this baby.

Rebecca and George, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this exciting time in your lives. I hope you both love the photos!

Isn't the baby cute? :)

Monkey has become more than just a nickname for the baby... it's become a theme-- in the baby shower and in the room decor!

Love love love this photo! Rebecca looks absolutely beautiful.

We'll end with this cute idea Rebecca came up with.

Thank you so much, Rebecca and George, for allowing me to capture these precious moments in your lives.


Couples: Brianna & Nirjhar

I was majorly excited to shoot this couple! I have known Brianna since I was in 2nd grade, and Nirjhar has been one of my closest friends for the past four years. When they started dating I was ecstatic, and I was even more excited to do this photoshoot.

Brianna and Nirjhar are two of the sweetest, kindest, and above all, silliest people I have ever met! Vladimir and I had so much fun wandering around the Santa Clara Library and the park with them. Seriously, these two were such troopers-- laying in the wet grass and sitting in sand for good pictures!

Bri and Nirj, you guys kept Vladimir and I laughing all afternoon. It was great to see how much fun you two have together. I absolutely love you both! Thanks for letting us take these photos of you and I hope you love them!

This was within the first couple of shots.. they both look amazing!

Loooove this next shot. Brianna looks absolutely gorgeous

This is right by where they had their first date

My view...

It may not look like it, but it was FREEZING outside! Brianna and Nirjhar suffered through it for me, but at the end we headed back into the library to escape the cold and get a few more cute pictures.

Brianna and Nirjhar, thank you so much for spending the day with Vladimir and I. We had a blast with you guys and I hope you enjoy the photos!

PS. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am thankful for my friends and family above all else. Have a great day!


Senior: Anisha

I am so happy that I have gotten the chance to get to know Anisha better in the past few months. She is sooo nice, and the fact that she laughs at anything sure makes you feel funny ;).
We had a great day wandering around downtown San Jose. Anisha is absolutely gorgeous-- we could tell from all the guys stopping to tell her so! Thank you so much for coming out and shooting with me Anisha, I had an absolute blast and I hope you like the photos!

Look at her working those fierce shoes!

Ummm... hello wind! Gorgeous!!

Love this light!!

We had some fun with Anisha's adorable hat!

Of course we'll end on this picture because I do love laughter...
