December 13, 2011 Meet the Blackwell Family

I’m not normally a family photographer type of photographer. It’s just not really what I do. But when I have friends who I ask me, I might say yes especially if I know there’s going to be super cute babies. Going into the shoot I knew there was going to be one, but I definitely didn’t expect to see three other cute kids. I love how Morgan (the baby) is just a bundle of joy and softness! I constantly want to pinch her arms and legs. I also love how well dressed everyone is, especially the kids, they’re all so cute!!!

Hello world!

I’m traveling again! But this time it’s just strictly for vacation! No shooting, no work (hopefully.) And also I’m going back to my home state this time, the beautiful big land of Texas! I was born in Houston, and lived in Dallas for the most part, but I’m visiting Austin, because Austin’s one of the coolest cities I’ve been to in the U.S. Their city motto is “Keep Austin Weird.” And I’ll let you know that I’m  kind of a weird person, so Austin and I get along just fine!

I’m also very excited because I’m traveling with my sister and her boyfriend, this trip should have some awesome bonding time!

I have an fun story just for you. I recently moved to a house in LA, I’ve been here for a few months and I love it. Kim, the bride ALSO used to live in the exact same house I live in right now years ago! Wait, there’s more! So on the week of Kim and Randy’s wedding, I received two letters in the mail addressed to Kim and her sister.  They haven’t lived in this house for over a decade and I’ve never gotten any mail addressed to her family before that or after that. And because I have a quirky sense of humor I thought it would be mildly entertaining for me to give them their junkmail on the day of their wedding.

Before this beautiful Earl Burns Long Beach Botanical Garden wedding started off in full swing they got started with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. One thing I love about tea ceremonies is that they have really good food there. One thing I hate about tea ceremonies is I can’t eat any of it. My favorite part about this segment was Kim’s dad hugged Randy with a huge smile and yelled out “I love you baby!” So sweet.

What I loved about the Botanical Gardens was the crane/egret/big bird swept flew from a high tree down to the pond side just the ceremony started. For my own amusement, I’m going to tell myself that that was a trained bird, and it was planned. At the end of the ceremony it swooped back down and caught a fish in the pond for dinner. Like whoa! What great foretelling! Ceremony was over, it is indeed time to eat! It really is a trained bird.

At the reception, it was my first time seeing kids dominate the dance floor like it was all of their own birthday parties. It was awesome!

December 10, 2011 Meet Jon and Margaret

What a cute couple!!! Jon and Margaret were such a joy to meet and photograph! I’m super sad I wont’ be able to photograph their wedding. I’m glad my good friend Kaysha will be taking care of them for their wedding, but when they found out that I was already booked for their wedding day they were sad too! But instead of just forgetting about me, they still requested to have me photograph their engagement session. I was super flattered, of course I agreed to photograph their engagement session!

Check out these super awesome, quirky, fun, but very beautiful images!
