San Jose fun family photographer – Photos by kim e » San Jose fun family photographer

have you ever thought about learning how to cook delicious thai food (and drinks!) and having awesome fun while doing it? this bay area thai cooking class is absolutely perfect. chef joni sare is a personal trainer for your kitchen and specializes not only helping you create delicious, simple, healthy meals, but also helps teach you kitchen basics and understand flavor profiles. her classes are fun and awesome and you walk away with new knowledge about food, maybe some leftovers and a new friend.

with this thai cooking class, she taught how to make mango sangria (using reusable colorful ice cubes and lemongrass as straws – so earth friendly and as much as i love seeing more paper straws, the idea of using biodegradable lemon grass is just amazing!) and pad thai, which surprisingly, is kind of easy to make after photographing this class. with her classes, you also learn some fundamentals with being in the kitchen so she taught how to properly lift noodles. most people lift the noodles horizontally which means that most of the noodles fall down. but if you hold them vertically, you get more noodles on your plate and you don’t have a bunch of noodles splashing down onto your plate and clothes (totally speaking from experience ha). i think all of our minds went whoa. such a simple movement and yet something we never thought about before. knowing that you learn more than just cooking when it comes to bay area thai cooking class with joni sare is one of my favorite things about chef joni!

during a los angeles trip, i had the pleasure to photograph this sweet family to celebrate their little one’s one year birthday. our original location was set for brand park in the san fernando mission. it’s a gorgeous location that i have shot before and always love the golden hour light. i wanted to check out the location to see if the roses were in bloom to discover that there were about fifty photo shoots occuring celebrating weddings, quinceaneras, engagements, prom night and family sessions. that was a definite no to shoot here, especially with a one-year-old who can be distracted and i can only do so much with photoshopping out crowds.

so this family was awesome with a last-minute location change to a favorite hiking location in the san fernando valley. there were a few prom photos being taken but the best thing about those crowds is that the teenagers wanted to be done right away so we ended up having the park to ourselves which i think is the best.

we got to enjoy the orange grove and a grassy hill tucked over by the bathrooms (i can make any location work!) plus homemade mom cake! she didn’t seem to be a fan of the cake or icing and did manage to knock it over and crawl away from it.  but oh little one, maybe one day you’ll love all the ooey gooeyness of homemade cake, because your mom bakes delicious goodies!

happy first one-year birthday little one!

after a year of living in their home sweet home, it was the perfect time to have a family fun session in their backyard! and what backyard fun did we all have playing soccer. and luckily i was never smacked with the soccer ball, though it did wiz by my ear once 😀

we had plans to skateboard to the local park but sometimes, hanging around the home can be a better choice. the kids love to play soccer and at the end of the session, the family said that they should play more soccer in the backyard.

sometimes i hear from families that they think that the home is not photo friendly but even dad mentioned that he was surprised playing in the backyard can be beautiful and he’s right, the freeness and flexibility of being at home sweet home brings out some extra love.

so do you love to do with your kids after school? maybe it’s a quick trip to get some ice cream or a stop at the library? eventually, these awesome little stops become a tradition and this mom and daughter family fun tradition is to have french fry-day every friday!

they stop at their favorite little bistro, pick out a board game and eat all the french fries. they wanted me to join along in their mom and daughter family fun tradition for a friday and what an absolute pleasure it was to be a part of their tradition. i love their competitiveness over boggle and seeing who can make the best french fry face.

next time you’re about to do your afterschool (or any time and with anyone that you love to have these traditions with!) mom and daughter family fun tradition, let’s have an extra person join along to play too? especially if french fries are involved 🙂

one of the things that i hear is that the place isn’t too cute. so i know that there can be hesitancy that the location of your favorite mom and daughter after school tradition is “just a” coffee shop or bakery but this is about you and your connections. and we’ll make sure that we find all the sweet spots. and even this location? sure it was in a restaurant but just outside, there was a bit of a garden and a dance studio. i will make your location work, whether it’s a dark restaurant or even just outside some buildings.

oh this bay area newborn lifestyle photography session goodness!

i always feel like the newborn stage is a haze, you’re on autopilot as you feed, change and try to get your little to sleep. the last thing on your mind is to hire a photographer to come into your home to photograph your new family. but it’s one of the things that within this newborn haze, you’re going to forget how tiny their feet were against your fingers or the baby yawns where the entire face scrunches up or the itty bitty signs of a small dimple.

when you’re thinking of doing a newborn session, i recommend our sessions are during the first two weeks and to be super prepared for snuggles, love, kisses and more snuggles. i want the focus of our session to be about your love for your little so there won’t be posing of the baby but rather, i’ll walk you through moments if you need, but all the love and snuggles come from your natural selves.

this family reached out right after their baby girl arrived (she was a month early) and once she arrived, that they wanted to capture this short phase of the newborn stages.

and even at two weeks new, their personalities start to shine through. she was awake and alert the entire session. but this family is all about being in the outdoors. so the second we took her outside (in the rain no less!) to capture some park photos, she fell fast asleep. i think that she has a lot of hiking dates and being in the wonderful outdoors is in her future.
