I love getting to know clients as friends during a photoshoot. I’m so happy I got the chance to shoot this sweet and adorable Cal Bears family — they were so easy to work with and made my work easy! Babies in general have so much curiosity and sometimes are hard to capture their attention, but with the help of some squeaky toys and tickling, Lena was all giggles! Thank you Kathy for gifting a photo session to your BFF!
In my college days, I was involved with China Care Bruins, a club dedicated to enriching the lives of Chinese adoptees in the US and orphans in China. A few weekends ago I went back to join the end of the year banquet and was happily surprised to see the little girl that I had mentored a few years ago had grown up to be a sweet teenager. I loved taking photos of these kids — their smiles make my heart light up I get sooo excited when I get to work with cute kids that literally pose themselves. They’re such natural models!!! Love seeing how China Care Bruins is making a positive difference in their lives!
It’s always a pleasure taking photos for this adorable family of four. Has 2013 been flying by or what? The boys are growing up so fast! Lacy Park is always a great location for photos because it has so much variety, from winter evergreens to summer palm trees! Look at how happy they are — soo sweet! Love this family!
What a beautiful day in LA for this super chic, vintage-inspired party filled with cute DIY hangers, bow ties, cupcake decorating, nail polish painting, shoes shoes shoes galore! Thank you Zooey Magazine — Lucia, for inviting me. I definitely had a blast shooting and working with such genuine and talented people, while learning a whole lot about fashion/editorial/red carpet photography!

Hi Everyone, meet Kayla! I took Scott and Lisa’s maternity photos last fall and I can’t believe how fast time has flown. Kayla is already 6 months old!! She is such a sweet, happy baby — a natural at photos! I’m so excited to see this precious bundle of joy grow up. Congratulations again, Scott and Lisa!
I’m so excited to share with you all the first wedding I did to kickoff 2013! This was the first traditional Chinese wedding I shot — and let me tell you, it was such a blast! The Chinese Tea Ceremony was immersed with vibrant reds — a Chinese color traditionally know to bring good luck. Red envelopes were given left and right. Each family member from Tim’s side gifted and decorated Jen in gold jewelry as if she were a Christmas tree. After she was formally accepted into the family, we chased the sun and tried to catch some outdoor shots at the beautiful San Gabriel Mission. What more could we have asked for, with the gorgeous California sun in January! We ended the day with a Chinese Banquet and when Chinese people say food, they mean food. (Yummy Chinese Food galore)!!!…and not to mention the hilarious wedding games that were played. I’m so thankful Jen and Tim asked me to help capture these moments for them. Cheers to Forever Love!
