3rd Annual Music for Kids | Children's Event Photographer | Berkeley, CA

A chunk of my life has been dedicated to music, so it is without question that I am still involved with it. The Little Bits is my current project, and although we do not often do shows, I cherish the few we get to do. The set of photos below are from a little concert co-produced by The Little Bits along with our good friend, Esperanza Catubig of Theatre Residencies, Inc. The event was held at Mudrakers Cafe in Berkeley, a corner coffeeshop with a nice room in the back for community-style events such as this. The event flyer was also put together by me.

Here are the highlights of the event! Please click on the photo to open the gallery.

L Family | Family Photographer | San Francisco, CA

Portraits: Family and Lifestyle
Location: Stow Lake in San Francisco, CA

We met with the L family at Stow Lake for some gorgeous winter afternoon photos. The light out here is always so very dreamy, and makes our job that much easier.

Egan led this mini session and I assisted with hauling gear -- best part! -- as we walked to each spot.

I must say that these kids are naturals at smiling. We didn't even have to try to get them to give us their best.

Here are some of our favorites from this mini session.

Welcome Back to the 80s | Life Event Photographer | Dublin, CA

A good party is a mix of good food, good friends and inspiration. This party was inspired by the 80s, because Bern -- who turned 40 -- wanted to mark her milestone birthday with the era she identified the best with. Well, the 80s, afterall, was a huge decade of color, hair, pop music. Either it was loved or hated, and Bern loved. We love how the colors came out from these photos. The props really brought out the 80s. Neon all day!

Cricket's Birthday | Event Photographer | San Francisco, CA

This is a late share of some birthday photos late last year. Family friend Cricket had a lovely birthday party at her home, complete with dancing, singing, and a tea party! 

Here are some of my favorite highlights from her birthday.

Photos by Rio Hernandez.

Cricket and co. start with tea, prepared by her supermom!

A tower of delicious sandwich bites for these fine girls and boys.

Dance the afternoon away, ladies!

Cricket was ecstatic to blow her candle, surrounded by her wonderful friends and family.

More fun and dancing? Of course!

Their backyard has the coolest DIY treehouse, although, it's not on a tree ;-) This was built by her grandpa. What a lucky girl. She has a personal play structure that isn't like any other.

Happy Birthday, Cricket! May all your wishes come true.
