SAN JOSE PHOTOGRAPHER: JOANNE’S MATERNITY SESSION

As a photographer,nothing puts more pressure to squeeze new creative ideas than a returning client.There is something about clients hiring you again.Its my gratitude to them and their trust that I have to push myself further to create something new and unique. As I know Joanne she likes to have good quality pictures.So I have to brainstorm to come up with a unique plan for this session.

I met Joanne thru a mutual friend where she hired me to take pictures of her little girl’s birthday party.Pass forward, now Im here again to shoot her maternity and family photos.We came up with different places to shoot but finally decided to go to Hellyer park. This place offers a playful but serene atmosphere Im looking for . I decided to do the photo session near sunset. Personally, I like this time of the day. The natural light of the beaming sunlight is at its best. In fact, just like painting a canvass there’s no need to put so many colors. The laid-back atmosphere,the light and their happy faces created the perfect ingredients for this photoshoot.

Joanne’s family was fun to shoot at.The photo session was such a breeze.Nothing makes me happy as a photographer than capturing authentic moments. As I continue to click on my camera ,I can’t help but smile at this happy and loving family.I still remember taking their little girls birthday party and now with the little pod on the way .Indeed there is something about babies that bring a dose of happiness to every persons face . To Joanne, Regie and Gwendolyn, my warmest congratulations to your new baby.

MATERNITY SESSION: MARIE + ARVIN

I had been longing to post this session I have with Marie and Arvin. This lovely couple had been our family friend since then. Having a new addition to the family not only excites the whole family but also to friends and relatives, who have been religiously waiting for this precious gift to come out. I had a wonderful experience with this couple last month. Although this was a quick and unplanned session, pulling out something to create a theme was easy. Marie made this session like a vintage summer fun look maternity session.

An Amazing Journey of Love and Miracle

I’ve been patiently waiting for this moment putting this together into a story.I am still sleepy and tired but looking back I still can’t believe how we made this far. My wife and I had been talking wee hours of the night thinking what will our baby will look like and how would it feels like if that day comes?Anxiety and excitement never runs out as the months keeps moving to its due date. We are so grateful that we have friends and relatives who are there to help us and guide us into this unique experience.
We are so thankful to our co workers, friends(from virginia, california, texas,new york),families(from philippines and singapore) and relatives who had been there all thru out this journey. For the kind people who hosted the baby shower and everything, it made our hearts really melt.
I believe that miracles really happen and we owe it to God the almighty. I, as a husband at the same time the future dad. It didn’t fade into my mind the fear that delivering a baby involves a lot of risk.Having no control of the situation makes me so vulnerable and powerless. That the only thing makes me and us strong is the hope and prayers that GOD is always with us.I completely surrender myself to him that he is still my father my Lord who is much stronger than everything.
I sincerely thank my wife and truthfully I am very proud of her even though she was so much in pain and scared(I ask her whats your pain level in scale of 1-10? and she said “11”) She still manage to hold on to me and trust me with all her hearts.
We know that this is just the beginning. And I know countless diapers and sleeps will still be wasted, as our friends and relatives always tell “It will all be Worth it”. And I am greatly happy to tell my boy “welcome to the world my son”
