Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Roseville Family Portrait: Bains Family

I can’t explain how I enjoy seeing families every year during their annual photo shoots. Remember Bains family from here and here … this year we met again.

Feb, 21, 2011

And this isn’t your typical family photo shoot in a studio…every year we make this into a super fun family time for everybody. To my surprise, little Kashni was now talking and Jaap was the beautiful big sister even more responsible and loving than last time! The girls were all so pretty in shades of pink..it was the day before valentine’s day after all. This year we had a brand new motorcycle to play with. Daddy Bains had a new toy that we could not leave out for pictures. Then we headed to Old Sac to bring in the train track as the backdrop.

It was an awesome shoot with Gagan, Gurinder, Jaap and Kashni. I still can’t believe how fast the kids have grown. I’m truly blessed to have the opportunity to capture memories for this beautiful family. I wonder what it will be like next year…we already talked about some cool ideas for the 2012 shoot!! Can’t wait!

To my valentine

Dear You,

I know I told you that my trip to Safeway was not about picking out a v-day card for you, but the fact is, I did stop and look at the cards that were out on the shelves. There wasn’t a single one that could tell the story of the two of us (plus they were all so over-priced!). So I decided to write you a blog post instead! You know, I’m not the kind who looks forward to chocolates on this day. I’m sure you remember the box of chocolate that sat on the counter top for about three years and then you decided not to buy me chocolates ever again (great idea by the way!). I love the flowers you bring me on this day (and every now and then), and I must admit that I love going to movies to watch one of those silly romantic comedies. It’s like a tradition we have, like many others!

Truth be told, I don’t need flowers or gifts to remind me of what we have between us. You have been a gift to me, You made me a better person. I’m thankful that you are there in every step of my life and I wouldn’t share my experiences with anyone else but You. Here’s to the next fifty valentine’s day that we will be spending together …

Yours truly,

Many THANKS to Doug Miranda for capturing these images for us. We will cherish them forever!

Indian bridal hair, henna and makeup: Collaboration

It was a super sunny Sunday to photograph Minal’s (of Bridal Henna Beauty by Minal) portfolio pictures for her bridal henna services for Indian brides. Six gorgeous models and one talented henna/hair/makeup artist made a boring afternoon so worth while. Check out Minal’s bridal services in the Sacramento area and beyond. If you are a South Asian bride, looking for a hair stylist or henna artist for your wedding, Minal is the one. Here’s some of her work that I photographed last weekend.

Roseville Children photography: Liam’s 1st birthday

I have known this little boy from the day one of his life. And I have to say that I’m in love with his little toes, the golden hair and his bright blue eyes. I love this little munchkin…little Liam. He is a trooper, he is strong, smart and obviously the cutest! Liam turned One yesterday. I couldn’t have missed this opportunity to capturing this bg event. He wasn’t feeling the best, but he let me take some snaps. I hope he doesn’t hate me for the thirty-minute of pain he had to go through for the pictures in the morning ;)

Happy First Birthday, big boy…I love you more than you know….
