If you ask me what I love to photograph the most, I’d have to say wedding, women and children.
Weddings are so pretty and so fun. Brides spend lots and lots of time and effort to make sure that their big day goes off without a hitch. There are always so many pretty details and so many pretty people. It’s such an honor to me that they trust me to capture their love story.
Women, on the other hand, are so intricate, so dynamic and they are full of beauty. Some see their beauty already but some need a bit help to see it themselves in the midst of everyday’s hustle and bustle. So when I work with them, I am allowed to be extra creative. I get to dress them up and make them feel beautiful which in turn, makes me feel beautiful. After all, what woman doesn’t love to have some really gorgeous photos of herself?
Family and children photography is always so special to me. Everytime I visit my Mom in Florida, we love to sit on the sofa and look through photos together. No matter how many times we see them, they are always funny and special. It’s like, “Mom, you looked so young then. Look at your hair, it was so long. Oh, I remember you growing those cucumbers in the backyard. Every day after school, you let us pick one. It was so good dipped in soy sauce. Yummy!”
Reliving moments like these make me thankful that my Mom made us take photos when we were young.
Below is a session I did with Zoey in Downtown Sacramento Capital Park back in February when the pink magnolia were in full bloom. This year, I want to focus more on children photography in addition to family photos. Just as it is important to take family photos, I think it is equally important to take photos of the individual child as it capture his and her personalities as he or she grows. It’s nice to look back to remember that “Hey! Remember this really fun shoot that we did for your birthday?”
Isn’t she so adorable? Her blond hair glowed against the morning sun. I asked her to twirl so she kept spinning and spinning to make her dress fluff up. She has the most beautiful blue eyes. They were full of wonder and curiosity. And that smile! *swoon*
In addition to being full of energy and extra cute, Zoey is also the middle child. Her Mom said she wanted her to have a shoot by herself to make her feel extra special. Sometimes Zoey feels like more attention is given to her old sister and younger brother. Though that’s not necessarily true, she wants Zoey to know that she is special and she is loved very, very much!
I hope you enjoyed it!
