FC: My Best friends Amber and Jen | engineering life, one click at a time
1: They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll let these photos do the talking. A look back at 2011 faves with some cameos from 2010. Truly blessed for all of these amazing photo-opps. One click @ a time - Tesha
2: MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY FACE: MAY 2010 This was Channa's first "Modeling Debut" (hard to believe, I know). It's obvious that she has a face the camera loves and has the physique to be envious of; but she definitely has the skills to pose and inspire someone behind the lens.
4: AUG 2010:Second session with the lovely Channa. Thumbs up to her creativity - utilizing her scarf as a headband
5: Channa & Her Boys: NOV 2011 Did I mention that this hottie has two boys? Another HTB (hard to believe fact) given her exterior. Her progenies are adorable - but that's to be expected with her as a genetic source.
7: THIRD TIME'S A CHARM: MAY 2011 There are gems hidden here in Fresno - The Shinzen Japanese Garden is definitely on that list. Amidst the beautiful scenery, Channa still blossomed in these photos.
9: MAY 2011 Kei Kendra (Keyk) is my photo-ready cousin and my muse. One glance at her natural beauty, and it's a no brainer as to why she is my go-to model and why I chose her as the face to represent my brand.
11: ANOTHER FIRST: MAY 2011 This was my first Senior Photo Session. After a few clicks, Sumeet learned to relax and smile more naturally - resulting in me being less apprehensive. Nostalgia set in, since it's been about 10 yrs since I was in his shoes. YIKES!
12: MY A-MUSE-MENT: JULY 2011 Blessed with a husband who serves as a model for me to practice on and a source of entertainment.
13: MY NOT-SO-LITTLE BROTHER, AJ DEC 2011 Decked out for Winter Formal. I took advantage of the opportunity to capture him in a tux and get some practice at a neighboring field. FYI: shoot with a couch - CHECK!
14: to have & to hold | lucky t o be in love with my best friend | FEB 2011: I was honored to be able to capture my BFF's (Sandy) engagement photos. The love between them is apparent. From the looks, smiles, and whispers, all I could do is click away.
15: Sharan & Raj | This was my first engagement shoot. Two ridiculously good looking people who were game for the locations and poses I had in mind (a Photographer's dream). 2010
16: I LOVE LUCY! JULY 2011 LUCY & SY (ENGAGEMENT SHOOT): Lucy and I rewind back to high school. It's great having our paths cross during this momentous occasion in her life and being able to capture it from behind the lens. I enjoyed exploring downtown Fresno with these two love birds - who later flew to Hawaii to get "Maui'd" (so "pun-ny).
17: My favorite place to be is inside of your hugs where it's warm and loving.

19: MY IN-LAW'S 30TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY There's nothing like a love that can withstand the test of time (I have an affinity for romance). A big CONGRATS to Mom & Dad (JoAnn & Alex) for keeping the spark going. It was a beautiful Sunday at downtown Fresno - a fitting setting for these two love birds to reminisce and share stories of their wedding. DEC 2011
20: CHILDREN'S CORNER Although I am part of the NKC (No Kids Club) I love kids. I am a proud Aunt to twin boys and welcome any opportunity to do photo sessions with kids.
22: Arielle was "tu-tu" cute during this shoot at Fresno State. Oct 2011
27: THE DOUBLE TROUBLE BANDITS ARE TURNING 2: JUN 2011 My nephews, though cute, did not make this shoot easy. The hats barely stayed on and all they wanted to do was play in the dirt - a foreshadowing of the dreaded "terrible-twos."
28: Emme Vang - Oct 2010 ALL SMILES - love it when parents are creative with outfits and props. BONUS: Emme was a darling and an angel during this shoot.
29: Twins at "La Gets'" Dec 2011
30: LUKA JAMES
31: LUKA JAMES 8 MOs (OCT 2010) One word: ADORABLE! This little cuttie will definitely be breaking hearts when he grows up. I enjoyed the range of facial expressions he gave me during this shoot. He remained stagnant for the most part and we had to throw in a meal in between. Overall, a photographer's ideal boy to shoot.
32: LUKA JAMES is almost 2! DEC 2011 Although the shoot started off with tears, the smiles rained non-stopped once he warmed up to the camera. It's a great opportunity to see kids grow from behind the lens and document the metamorphosis that has taken place.
33: SONAN et al. DEC 2011 This was my last shoot of 2011. It was another beautiful day to shoot at Woodward and even better to have met this family. Like all shoots, I was nervous but the laughter that took place made me feel at ease I'll let their Colgate smiles confirm this.
35: Colorado Here We Come! | HOME SWEET HOME Rachael et al DEC 2010 I was commissioned to do an in-home shoot by Rachael. She wanted photos that captured them happily as a family doing what they love, while in their PJs. This was an opportune moment to test my indoor lighting equipment and take on a more photo-journalistic approach to photography.
36: ROBLES FAM DEC 2011 Could this family get anymore gorgeous? (And I am not biased because she is my sis-in law either). These photos don't lie. Hailey was definitely the star of this shoot with her poses and just natural cuteness. This is one undeniably picture perfect family.
37: Nancy & her boys | SEPT 2011 - This was my first time shooting at Forkner Park. I was blessed that Nancy's 3 boys were very well behaved during the shoot - icing on the cake.
38: CHANNY THOMPSON DEC 2010 featuring Channy's two boys.
40: LEA FLOWER & HER GARDEN OF LOVE 2011 This is an assortment of Lea and her siblings - Allee and Mason. I have taken their photos since she turned 1 mo. and it's been a blessing to see her blossom into a beautiful little flower before the lens. I can't thank her mom, May, enough for the opportunity to pictorially document her growth.
43: BABY BLUES NOV 2011 Meet Mary Elizabeth Scott and the men in her life. I love shooting with kids (though they are a challenge). The fact that they don't really sit still provides me with a dynamic range of photo opps - from their playful mannerisms, to boys being boys, and the occasional tears. (Note: loving the piercing blue eyes of her little ones).
44: Sydney & Madison | The second set of twins I've had the privilege of shooting with. Sydney (LEFT) reminded me of an Ambercrombie model, while Madison (RIGHT) had the vintage vibe. Both were absolute dolls to work with. Dec 2011
47: BRAGANZA FAMILY: OCT 2011 It was a nice day to take pictures and even a blessing to get to spend time with my Aunt Pearlie and her family. These boys have definitely sprouted. "D'" the eldest (and is almost surpassing me in height) was so great about helping me with his little brother "Jack-Jack" who kept mentioning that he just wanted to go to a party instead - (it definitely made for an entertaining session and allotted me my cardio for the day).
48: RANDOMNESS | 500 DAYS OF SUMMER inspired
50: PRO-BONO FOR AN AMAZING CAUSE: Fresno State's Bulldog Pantry: First ever Will Walk for Food Event. Congrats on raising over 3k. Thanks to the hostess with the biggest heart -Jessica Medina for making this happen and allowing me to do my first event shoot. SEPT 2011
