When Yolanda and Brad asked me to photograph their new baby girl, I couldn't say no. These two had eloped in their beautiful home in an intimate ceremony with just their three children just a year ago. Though I don't typically photograph newborns, this family was just too adorable to resist (and I even got to meet their new puppy!)
Linda and Rej met years ago as the wingwoman and wingman for their respective friends - but as luck would have it, they found their match in each other! They were married in their hometown of San Jose and just celebrated the cutest baby shower at the parents' home just nearby Pinchetti Ranch Open Reserve. We took a short walk out and were greeted by a herd of deer - just the perfect setting for her maternity session!
Cristina and Hector came back to the place where they were married to celebrate their anniversary! This sweet family climbed up and around the rocky shores for a short family and anniversary session at Asilomar State Beach.
Christina traveled all the way from Germany to be an au pair in the US, where she met the love of her life Chris here in San Jose. Married for 6 years with the most adorable child Cosmos, these two now work at the same company and travel around the world together. While my first love is always couples photography, I had the best time adventuring with this beautiful family - I could constantly hearing Cosmos' laughter as his papa picked him up and let him fly. And plus, who can say no to that cute face with the best boy bun!!
As a fellow master's in counselor education graduate and soon-to-be former intern, Michelle has been such a joy to get to know here at the SJSU Career Center. Congratulations to her as she brings her sweet and bright personality to her new job in San Francisco!
Congratulations to these two Class of 2017 graduates, who graduated together and are now engaged! Gabriela and Jacob met at work, and then they fell in love right before they left for separate colleges. But these two were clearly meant to be, because here they are standing 4 years later with a ring on her finger and a wedding planned for 2018!
I just have to give a shoutout to Robert, who's graduating from SJSU with his English degree and continuing his studies for his teaching credential. With a future that could hold shaping the next generation of high school students, we certainly need more educators out there, especially such brilliant and awesome ones like Robert!
Congratulations to these two amazing San Jose State University grads, who met at San Jose City College and transferred - then graduated - here together!
