“When I look at the photos you took I get filled with so much emotion- they are absolutely beautiful. You captured these important moments (my maternity, baby’s birth and bonding with the newborn) with creativity and thoughtfulness I am so happy that you were a part of my pregnancy! Thank you Kay.” – Darcy F.

“Kay, we are truly impressed by the moments and details you captured as we welcomed our daughter. Since our families are out of town, they were thrilled to “meet” Kiana before being able to do so in person. While the first few weeks of Kiana’s life are a blur, you made us look great even though our eyes were fighting to stay open. Thank you for documenting this special time in our lives.” – Chelsey K.

“We hired Kay to do a photo shoot of our family – grandparents, children and grandchildren, while on vacation in San Diego and could not be happier with how it worked out.  Kay made the day not only stress free, but fun!  She was wonderful with the children and adults, and the finished product reflects her professional talents and relaxed demeanor. The photos are of excellent quality and we are thoroughly enjoying the photo book and enlargements we ordered. I wish she lived closer to our home! Thank you, Kay!” – Paula R.

“Kay was easy going and made things stress free. We love all of the images! I plan on hanging up quite a few and using for birth announcement and Xmas cards. I really enjoy having access to all the photos digitally. Overall process was really easy especially after just having a newborn baby. It was nice to be able to meet before Cameron was born to discuss the session. Thank you Kay!” – Holly M.

“The photos are more than I hoped for. I was nervous about doing maternity photos – and honestly thought about skipping it and just doing newborn photos. But I realized that this was such a special moment in time for us, and I wanted to capture it. Looking through the gorgeous images now, I am so glad that we decided to do a maternity photo shoot, and elated with our decision to book you as our photographer. I will cherish these photos always. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Jessica C.

“Kay is an extraordinary photographer, with an eye for lighting and composition. My son was reluctant to have his photo taken, but Kay won him over immediately. And the photos exceeded my expectations.” – Janet C.

“We had such a great time during our photo session with Kay. Kay was able to capture beautiful pictures with my entire family (6 adults and 3 kids) and we enjoyed every minute of it! She is such a natural and talented photographer, worked well with the kids, and made everyone feel at ease. Thank you Kay, can’t wait to take pictures of our newborn next year” – Cheryl K.

“When I signed up, I anticipated a standard photo shoot where you pose in some locations that capture where you are from. Not the case. Kaori was more interested in capturing the true image of our family. We are not the serious and calm type of family, we are the goofy, caring, and unpredictable type family. That is exactly what she captured. She took the time to show our family as we really are. From my wife’s subtle smile to the ridiculous outburst of my youngest child. She captured every moment perfectly. Thank you Kaori for exceeding my highest expectations for a photo shoot and bringing to life memories that will last a lifetime.” – Chris R.

“The whole experience couldn’t have been better. Kaori bonded immediately with our family, so we all felt relaxed and just had fun. It was one of the most pleasant shoots I’ve been on. We’ve booked photographers before, but we’ve never had this many pictures to choose from. There are so many winners, it’s been really hard to choose the best ones. Kaori has an excellent sense of timing, composition and lighting. She caught my family at just the right moment, over and over again. And honestly, I don’t know how she did it. We were floored by how many good pictures we got. Each one shows an amazing attention to detail.” – Mike S.

“We enjoyed the entire process immensely; it was fun. Kaori was very good with the children and able to get them to take their best shots. The final photos came out beautifully!! We love especially the natural poses and action shots. We are constantly getting compliments on the photos.  We’ve done other photo sessions with other photographers and never received so many compliments before. Thank you for the great experience!” – Yuka & Marco

“Kay, we feel so lucky to have found you! I have never felt natural taking photographs but you do such a great job at making everyone feel at ease that we forget you are even there. We absolutely loved our maternity shots and Jack’s newborn photos, but we are so glad we decided to do another shoot with him at 6 months. It was the perfect time to get shots of him while he’s still willing to sit still, and yet he has already changed so much from when he was born. Now we just can’t wait to take another round when he is one! It is so nice to have the high quality photos we can hang on the wall. We have loved all of the photos you have taken so far. Thank you for capturing such an important time in our life!” – Julie F.

“We just love every single image! The image of my baby and her dad looking at each other and smiling is priceless. The light and the soft colors of the blurred background is so beautiful! Every time I look at these photos, I cannot help but smile. Thank you so much Kay!” – Shino I.

“Kay- I am blown away by how amazing these newborn photos are! I’m loving everything: the wraps you chose for Owen, the shots of him in a basket, the adorable sibling photos….everything! And you made us all look so good in the family photos. I’m not sure how I will decide which photos to include in the birth announcement because there are so many perfect ones. Both the maternity shoot and the newborn shoot were so much fun and we have so many stunning photos to show from them. We can’t wait to do a family photo session when Owen gets a bit older.” – Laura W.
