Redwood Shores Family Portraits | Manzi & Tien Families

Last week I met up with two wonderful families, the Manzi and Tien families, in Redwood Shores for some reunion photos.  There was also a lot to celebrate as there were two college graduates and one high school graduate who were ready to embark on the next journey of their lives.

The Shores is a nice, tranquil community within Redwood City, and the weather that day was just right (minus the strong wind at times).

San Mateo Japanese Tea Garden Family Photography | Camdyn & Cousins

For Camdyn's last session, her cousins were in town so Camdyn's mom had a great idea to put them together to get a few fun shots at the Japanese Tea Garden in San Mateo.  They were so cute together.  The last time I saw Ethan he was still a baby, and I was so glad to have finally met Katelyn and Emily.  It's amazing how fast kids grow.  Camdyn is also growing up.  At her previous session she didn't have any teeth yet and now she has a few in the front and sitting up really well.

San Francisco Wedding Photography

Here's another wedding I assisted for Chung Li Photography.  The bride got ready at Hotel Kabuki in San Francisco's Japantown, and the hotel was beautifully designed and decorated.  It was certainly a wedding to remember as the reception was held on a ship to match their nautical theme.

San Jose Baby Newborn Session | Baby Ella

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure to take some photos of Baby Ella in the family's San Jose home.  I've been so used to taking pictures of children when they're several months old that I forgot how tiny a newborn baby can be.  Baby Ella was awake during the first part of the session, but she easily fell asleep once we laid her down on her stomach.
