our LITTLE PRINCESS nicole

With so much excitement, I wanted to share this lovely session I had with my sweet daughter. Its been an amazing year, I can't believe my little princess is having her first birthday soon.

As a father photographer, I can't help but wait for this moment to come. I always wanted it to be super special for her. I told my wife Nicelle that I wanted a photoshoot for her, A kind of session that is been stylized and curated just like the one we saw on pinterest. It was a crazy idea, I never thought the preparation could take longer than the photoshoot. The funny thing is we prepared the whole detail and props thing for a week and we literally just did the session for 15min. It was just a little time but things turn out what I expected.

Nicole is naturally sweet and adorable. It wasn't so hard for us to have fun and enjoy the moment while we are making this moments infinite.  Me and my wife are so happy for having her. She has given us so much joy and happiness... I wanted this Ordinary day Extraordinary..HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY PRINCESS!!

THE CADAVILLO

Just when you thought everything was already in plot, the stage was already set. All of the sudden a day before, the weather forecast changed its course on a different direction. And rescheduling it was not even an option. Sometimes the only thing  that matters is just look at the bright side and enjoy the ride. Today I am featuring the CADAVILLOs. Im albeit excited coz they are new here on my blog.

I know that I have done this many times. Its just the timing was bogging me coz we don't normally get  heavy rain in California . Their trust and confidence ,gave me little boost  and prepare me to think ahead and create a contingent plan just incase worst case scenario happens. I believe that creativity comes when I am challenged. I just assure them that a cloudy, gloomy day will have soft, dreamy look to their pictures. I even show Dee some samples of different light scenario of my past shoots. Squeezing in some moment and running towards time was the best part of that day. I can't ask for a better day, it was meant for us.

It was raining frantically, the weather was cold and the ground was  wet. It could never been smooth without them. I was impressed with Dee for pulling out some awesome props and amazing preparedness with this session. This is my first time to do photo session in this area in coyote creek, but damn it was beautiful and magically enchanting.  The session just fell into everything that we had  planned for. I was so inspired by their ingenuity and transparency. It was only a brief session but all of this moments will last a lifetime. Enjoy the photos

THE GELFOND

I have been longing to post this session I had 2 weeks ago. Today Im featuring the Gelfond. They were my first client of this year. We had planned to do this since last year, but because of the tight schedule we were able to do it early this year. Im glad I met this lovely family. Their Love with each other is very contagious. Even though it was freezing, gloomy that day, this doesn't stop me from bringing the best moments of them that day. It was such a beautiful day. This park in Cupertino is a hidden gem. The perfect color and lovely foliage created the perfect backdrop  for this session

For Steve and Olivia thank you for trusting me this precious memories. Stay fab and enjoy the pictures!!

MINI HOLIDAY SESSION: THE DEGUZMAN AND OLIQUIANO FAMILY

Its been a long and fruitful years. Blogging is the only way that I could reflect and think about what matters. I believe that capturing moments and making your friends happy, is my way of appreciating life for having people like them.

I have been longing to post this incredible family session I had last week. The Oliquianos and The Deguzmans are not new here in my blog. I have been taking photos of their family events  from birthdays to parties and even family vacations. Being our close family friend and travel buddies, it is not unusual for them to see me behind the camera all the time. As the photographer in our group, this gives me the opportunity to capture family events,gatherings and vacations.

I am posting this session taken last week ENJOY!!
