Nolan’s 100th day Portrait

Oct 22nd was Nolan's 100th day to this world. He grew up so fast from a tiny little newborn to a chubby baby. I just realized how many precious moments had been missed during these three months. Late always better than never. Let me start to record his growth from now.

Nolan’s First Halloween

Last Saturday was Nolan's first Halloween. I purchased this costume in T.J.Maxx and dressed him as a little chicken.

The photo of pumpkin patch had been shot when I bought pumpkins for the holidays two years ago. It was sunset time and the ranch was about to close. Hundreds of pumpkins laid on the ground and soaked up the last sunshine. The smoke rose up into the air at far back. I just pulled out my camera and got this image.

Friday night, right after Nolan fell into sleep, I started my work. It wasn't too hard to combine these two. Instead, I did spent most of time to clean Nolan's image. The final result is here. What do you think?

Happy Halloween!

Morning Fog #2

Same as Morning Fog #1, this photo is edited by Photoshop too. The combination of landscape photo from Shenandoah and in studio bridal shot actually works well to me. This is my first time to try levitation photography which I really interested in. Will try more in future.

Malibu USC Wayfarers Pre Wedding

Mia and Jason have planned a wedding in China with their pre wedding session in Los Angeles when we first met. We talked about the different selections of nice photography spots and they eventually picked Malibu beach, USC campus ( coz Jason was graduated there), and Wayfarers Chapel for 8 hours session. It was a long day, but full of fun. These photos were made to a slide show for the wedding and received pretty much compliment on their wedding. Congratulation Mia and Jason.
