We got to know Carmelita and Douglas’ family from volunteer work in school. Their two daughters and our own children went to the same school, which required parent participation. Carmelita had been an active volunteer in many school activities, especially an annual talent show. She was one of the two chair women of the show for three consecutive years, which demanded a lot of work and sacrifice. It was through these shows, we had developed tremendous respect of Carmelita for her leadership, kindness, and dedication. Hence, we felt it was a great pleasure to have a session with her and her gorgeous family.
We had a wonderful session with our lovely friends Naomi and Herbert’s family. We had been friends since our older son went to kindergarten with their son. Witnessing their children’s growth in the past few years, we often cried “time flies so fast!”. Fortunately, today we had tools like camera to record these precious moments, which we will cherish long after.
This was the second year we had a session with our friends Si and Jia’s family. Last year, their younger daughter barely walked. This year, she was fearlessly climbing up and down the structures in playground. These two little angles were playful and not shy in front of the camera, leaving a lot of laughs and joyful moments.
We became friends of Yimei and Julian because their daughter was in the same kindergarten class of our younger son last year. Their happiness and humor always impressed us. When they approached us about the opportunity of having a photo session, we felt so excited. It turned out to be a memorable session – full of love and joy throughout the entire time. We captured many many moments of this lovely family.
Two of my friends came over tonight to have their studio photos taken. Before they arrived, I’d set up the strobe and tested a few shots with my boys.
