Summer Days in San Diego….| San Francisco Bay Area Newborn, Kids, Childrens Photographer


This summer vacation was jam packed with lots of short mini-vacations with the kids. This is the year where all three kids will be in school (Yeah!). So we decided it is time for Disneyland and Legoland. We’ve run out of excuses.

The kids LOVED Legoland, more pictures of that on a later post. However Disneyland, not so much. Weather was hot, lines were way too long for the patiences of everyone. Perhaps when the kids are older, they will enjoy the more thrilling rides at Disneyland.

So theme parks aside, I think the most relaxing part of the trip was our stay at Coronado Bay. The Beaches were real nice and kids really had a nice time just playing in the water and sand. They spent hours making “sand meatballs”. It’s actually a very delicate process of packing the sand with water and shaping it with loose sand. Being a kids, these are the little things they enjoy playing with the most.

Also, I forced myself to take only one memory card and take all these pictures in jpeg instead of RAW. I figure it would really cut down on the editing process. So far so good but I’m still a RAW girl at heart.

  • LInh, these are fabulous vacation pictures. I love the details you captured and the emotions are so real. Ok. I want to see more of your vacation pictures.(real soon)
    Thanks for being such a great photographer friend. You have helped me grow as a photographer and taught me so much…

  • What fun!!! You did a great job capturing such wonderful memories.

  • how fun! i’ve only taken my kids to legoland, but i agree, the shorter lines make it worth it, right? i want to see more!

    Great pictures! Brings back fun memories.

Baby Isabelle…….| San Francisco Bay Area Newborns Kids Photographer

My Gosh I’ve been a really bad blogger lately! There’s so much catch up to do! I hope you all had a great summer this year. There’s so much pictures to share from our family vacation so be sure to check back soon as I need to edit through hundreds of vacation pictures.

Well, let’s start with this session photographed about almost 2 months ago. Baby Isabelle was about 12 days old at the time. She was such a sweet angel and so so beautiful! Isn’t newborn skin just to die for?

Happy Father’s Day!…… | san francisco bay area baby kids family portrait photographer

It’s a very hard job being a parent no matter who you are. The stress of daily life can get to you sometimes…. but what makes it all worthwhile is when your kids give you those little magical moments that just tickles your heartstrings. Though I hate to submit and admit it… (since I’m kind of the stubborn type)… I wouldn’t have been able to pursue this path without the support and help of this guy. Thank you dear for all that you do, let it be known that I do appreciate you even though I don’t say it out loud sometimes.:)

Have a great Father’s day weekend everyone!

  • Awwwwwww!

  • So cute. She loves talking on the phone. Sweetness..
