Morgan Hill, San Jose, Bay Area Lifestyle and Studio Photographer & Videographer.

By Family Portrait Photographer, I mean maternity, newborn, breastfeeding, you and your pet… Anything that makes you feel happy. Whatever makes you feel like you belong there. I focus my photography and portraiture sessions on creating custom headshots, distinctive family portraits, expressive maternity portraits, and intimate breastfeeding sessions. As a “lifestyle” portrait photographer, I place my subjects in natural situations. I do this for headshots as well as family portraits. You choose the settings or pick one from my many location recommendations around the Bay Area. Let the kids run wild. It’s all good. I will document the essence of you or your family interacting with one another.



Whether it’s a short movie from our outdoor session, or maybe you just bought your first house. From lifestyle videos to promotional films, you can make your memories even more amazing by having it on film. Being able to hear your kids voices, hear them laugh in 5 years from now is priceless! 


We regret we didn’t preserve those moments only when they are gone. It’s a precious time between you and your baby and it’s gone before you know it. Don’t let it pass undocumented in the most beautiful way possible.

 This plan is great  for your baby’s first year. Starting from maternity then newborn and ending on a 1st b-day celebration session.

But that’s not the only use for this plan. It is awesome for anybody who cares about having amazing quality images of your growing family at any time of the year. Don’t just settle for once a year Christmas card session. Don’t just settle for same-old thing everybody else is doing. Get the Membership and rock the socks off your family portraits ALL YEAR LONG!



with your house and your needs in mind

(and only if you ask me for it)

I create images you’d want to display

You and your time are worth more than a disc full of files, forgotten and rarely looked at as time passes.

While good as a backup archive, digital files are not tangible; printed images are. I use the BEST photography lab in the United States for printing. As a full-service professional photographer, I am proud to provide a choice of collections that include custom, museum-quality wall art displays, and custom designed photo albums for your family portraits.


HEADSHOT PORTRAITS that will make you smile and feel.

The last thing you’ll think of those portraits is the word “corporate”. So while I might not be a perfect fit for your corporate headshot, I’m a  perfect fit for creatives and people who like original stuff. 


Thank you so much for your interest in my work. If you got to this page, that means a lot to me.
Now let’s talk about your needs and expectations. Don’t be shy. Ask me anything you want to know. Even better, let’s meet for a coffee.
