< the little guy >

As I was looking through the pictures, I realized I had a whole lot more that I liked, so here they are. I just had to share.

< on the way >

This beautiful couple is about to welcome home a baby in a couple of months, and I was so excited to get some pictures of them today. She is seriously one of the cutest pregnant women I have ever seen! Here's just a peek into the time I got to spend with them today.

< brand new >

My best friend from high school had her baby about 2 weeks ago, and I really wanted to go visit her to take pictures. But, she lives a little far so I wasn't going to, but the weather was great, so I decided to strap my little girl in her car seat and take an 8 hour drive off to visit them. And I'm SO glad I did! It was actually a pretty gloomy rainy day when I took the pictures, but the light worked out alright for us, and newborns are just so beautiful that you can't really mess up pictures of them anyway. This little boy was so sweet and sleepy and I felt so close to heaven being around him. There really is something special about being by someone who is so new to this earth. Makes me excited to have another one of my own in a couple of months. Thanks for letting me come visit and take pictures of your beautiful family! Can't wait to see you again soon.

< boys >

I realized after today's family session that I have never taken pictures for a family with only boys before (other than the beautiful mom, of course). It was such a fun experience! These boys are so sweet and the parents are both such calm, mellow people that it was so much fun for me. I've always been told that being half Asian makes me shoot well in b&w, and after taking pictures of these cute kids I realized maybe what they meant about me. I'm totally not as cute, of course. I found myself really debating whether to post these pictures in color or b&w because they looked SO good both ways. I think the contrast of their dark features and gorgeous skin is just magical in b&w. Anyway, hope you enjoy. Thanks so much for having me take your pictures!

< part 2 >

We were finally able to get back together with our friends and finish our family sessions. It's a little intimidating shooting for a family where the dad is a better photographer than me, but who can resist these stunning kids? Thanks again, guys! Can't wait to see you again soon:)

< part 1 >

We got to get together with our dear friends' family to take some pictures the other day. It was so much fun! Unfortunately, the sun was dying on us (I didn't think about daylight savings killing our sun), so we're planning on getting together really soon. But I still think some of these turned out great. It might be because they are such a beautiful family! Can't wait to see you guys again soon.
