About The Photographer

My name is Opal. I am a compassionate Photographer, Mother, and Poet.  I love children and they love me back. I make photo taking fun and easy. I am a gentle, warm hearted, artistic person, who enjoys life to the fullest. 

I was born and raised in northern California. My grandfather was also a photographer. Between natural curiosity of my grandfather's photography and the instinctive observations of the natural beauty in life, I began a life of taking photos and creating memories. Shortly after the birth of my daughter her desire, skills and excitement of photographing people bloomed. (My daughter is now 12 years old) With people admiring and complementing me on my work I then started her own business of photographing life's special moments. I properly named it Opal Moments Photography........

 I shoot weddings as a career and photographchildren as my passion.

What People Say about me:

"Opal is lovely! Talented, fun, easy to work with.
She in incredibly family friendly
My young kids took to her immediately and we had a low-key and still super fun and professional photoshoot. We are really pleased with all the different images and are very grateful for her ability to capture the moment!"


"Opal was professional, kind, punctual, and gave great direction! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone, she really put all my nerves at ease. Our maternity photos far exceeded my expectations and Opal was a pleasure to work with!"


"I was referred to Opal through the Burlingame Mother's Club last year. If you have kids and have done photos before, you know how stressful it can be. Somehow in the craziness of it all, Opal takes the most beautiful photos that absolutely capture the essence of our family. From silly to serious and everything in between. She is so good with the kids, and they love spending time with her. I am so thankful that we found Opal to capture each year of our lives so we can remember these days for years to come."


"Opal has taken photos for both my wedding in 2011 and our family photos this year. She is personable and so easy to work with. During our wedding, it seemed like there were 3 of her! She was able to capture so many incredible moments. She was quick to edit our photos and get them to us too! Our family shoot was so special as well; she was great about getting our daughter's attention and helping capture some really beautiful pictures of the three of us. I am so thankful we found Opal to capture special moments in our lives"


"I was looking for a photographer who could truly capture moments, emotions, and essence; that is what I found with opal!! I first worked with her for my maternity family photos which we loved and have worked with her since. From newborn family photos to family shoots Opal always delivers quality! She is not only easy to work with but delivers something different every time! She can not only capture from that special moment between father and son, but also the personality of each family member thru her amazing talent! I look forward to working with her in many years to come and feel truly lucky to have found such a gem of a person and photographer!"


"Opal is amazingly talented! I feel so lucky that my sister found opal for me when she was doing research for my wedding. Fast forward almost 6 years later, not only did we have Opal photograph our wedding, she also did our maternity photo shoot, newborn, baby and kid photos. Every time she does an AMAZING job! I would give her 10 stars if I could."


"We have been lucky enough to work with Opal on many special occasions over the years. She captured so many special memories in our lives, our engagement pictures, wedding, newborn photos and the many family session in between. She is great with my children and getting them to look at the camera. That can be a task with having 3 children under 3. She really is amazing."


"Opal has been doing our family photos for 10 years. She started with our engagement, then wedding, both our children and sessions in between. I am always over the moon with the results. She is so easy and fun to work with, even my husband looks forward to our shoots (and that's saying a lot lol). I would highly recommend her for any and all occasions that you would like a photographer at."
