Kind Words

“The photos are hands down, the best I’ve ever seen of my kids! I seriously regret not doing this sooner…”
Sandra has a wonderful and flexible personality. She really is focused on the satisfaction of her customer and makes the experience collaborative. I was able to rely on her artistic experience to narrow down the best photos from which I made the final decisions. The photos are hands down, the best I’ve ever seen of my kids! I seriously regret not doing this sooner, and I am so pleased with the results. Thank you so much Sandra, for your wonderful vision, your patience with my boys and the beautiful pictures — they will be treasured forever!

“My boys had a lot of fun under her guidance and their personality reveals through these photos.”
Sandra was very helpful to guide me in coordinating the outfits for the three of us and encouraging me to not be stressed out about it. She made all three of us felt at ease and natural for each photo. Her guidance for posing for the individual shot was amazing! My boys had a lot of fun under her guidance and their personality reveals through these photos. I usually hate getting photos taken, but I would definitely come back to Sandra for future photos.

“Thank you for taking so much of the anxiety away…”
The last big photo shoot we had was almost 13 years ago for our wedding. Nick and I both hate staged photos and cannot smile naturally on cue. Thank you for taking so much of the anxiety away by preparing everything from what outfits to wear, scouting out our location to save us time, and meeting the boys in advance to get to know them more. We love how they turned out. You’re amazing at your craft, thank you for everything.
May and Nick

fun and casual in the studio

Love the studio for baby milestones! My studio is light, bright and has a number of backgrounds (grey, dark charcoal, white, and industrial windows). Yes I’ll get look-at-the-camera photos and classic baby portraits, but who says you can’t be candid in a studio? All my regular silly, fun games apply and we play play play. The result is animated, candid images that show of your family’s personality and love for one another.

in-studio toddler session

I just love photographing these “sitting-up” sessions with toddlers! Isn’t Renee adorable?! She is so fascinated with simple props in the studio. Her facial expressions melted my heart!

Sunny Spring Time in the Park

The days are getting warmer and the flowers are in bloom. Hello, spring! It’s an incredible time of year for photos where the grass is a special kind of green and the weather is perfect for outdoor sessions at your local parks.

  • Includes multiple subjects, and wardrobe changes.

Pets are family too

Remember the first time you met your puppy or kitten? When your fur-baby looked at you with “will you love me” eyes, you knew you are going to do whatever it takes to take good care of him/her.

I love when I receive an inquiry from a client who is interested in booking a session with their furbaby. I photograph on location in my natural-light-bathed studio in San Marino,  amazing homes and destinations. I treat all my furbaby clients as if they were mine.

Baby-led newborn session

The sweet little yawns, the tiny toes, the way he looks at you, and how he reacts to your tender touch.

“I love these photos because that’s exactly how he looks at me!” 

My signature newborn sessions are simple and natural.

Forget hours of photo shoot that can add on more stress to the already busy mom. I document newborns in a way that is natural and authentic to him or her.  Instead of posing your newborn like a prop, I work WITH your baby’s natural rhythms. I highlights everything that first catches your attention and everything you want to remember about your little one.
