Awesome Photos

Take a look at Jim Cook's "Awesome Photographs" blog! Jim Cook is a photographer that I personally look up to, so it was especially exciting when he chose the backseat photo from Lisa & Mike's session to include in a blog of his favorite photographs!

Engagement Session in Oakland!

On Sunday night I had an absolute blast shooting Lisa & Mike! How can you possible take a bad photo of such good looking people? And they just laughed and smiled the whole time, which really makes my job easy. :) Oh, and check out her gorgeous ring!

I'll be shooting their wedding in October...I can't wait!

The portrait you can send to the relatives:

Getting a little cozy at the laundrymat:

I don't see any view....

Thanks Lisa and Mike!

Jezreel's Awesome Session

So it's been a very busy week for Jillian Kay Photography! Between my new logo, a new online ordering tool, specialized greeting cards, and two photoshoots.....well there's certainly no shortage of things to do! One of the highlights of the weekend was a great photoshoot with Jezreel!

Jezreel is 11 years old, and would love to venture into, movies, tv, commercials, you name it! Her older sister, Rachel, had a photoshoot with me just a few weeks ago and contacted me about doing a session for Jez, too!

Jezreel brought her mom, both of her sisters, and a the 6 of us girlies went on a fun photo adventure in downtown San Jose! This is one awesome family. :)

Take a look at her gallery in my portfolio for more great shots of this stunning yound lady!

So if any of you out there are directors looking for a cute gal with a great smile and tons of've found her!

Cards with a Personal Touch

I come from a very creative family. Until a few years ago, when I discovered a love for photography, I honestly thought I was the only uncreative one! One great example is my mother, who has always been very talented at crafts and interior decor.

A couple years ago she took up scrapbooking, but really took it in a different direction. Her favorite thing to make is greeting cards! She creates these absolutely fabulous cards that are unique and beautiful....I just can't describe!

Well, rather than let her horde them all at her house, I've requested a special batch just for me. I'll post a picture of the first shipment I've received when I get a chance, and I'll be sending them out! How neat it that!?

If any of you are looking for unique handmade cards for any occasion let me know!
