My clients brought a three-month old kitten Luis to the photo session two weeks ago. At the first glance, I just felt he looked so similar to my son: round face like a Chinese bun, flat nose, big and round eyes always looking around curiously. But he couldn’t stay too long and started to yawn pretty soon, just like my newborn exactly. So I realized it was a good idea to adopt a kitten like Luis who will recall the memory how I cuddle with my little one when I got old.
Flower season of Los Angeles is here again. It was my first time shooting the Almond Blossom. Thousands of Almond trees with all the white flowers were blossoming at same time. Flower petals spread all over the ground. We were so impressed by this amazing sight. Rikki did a great modelling job for this romantic style.
I met Vesper officially this morning in Thousand Oaks Westlake Village, who was the guest of Si Chen’s wedding at The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. I took couple photos for her during that day.
We talked about some details of the wedding photo session. Finally we realized both of us graduated from USC, and from same hometown – Hangzhou, and our fathers had worked in same University – Zhejiang University. What a small world!
Vesper is preparing her wedding this July. Hopefully I will become her wedding photographer and have chance to shoot this beautiful bride.
Yu found me by Google search engine accidentally. We talked about all the details and decided the session day was Dec 22rd.
On Dec 21st, I realized it was highly possible to rain at 22nd, so I called Yu to see if we need to reschedule. Both of them thought little rain did not matter.
At Dec 22nd, three days before Christmas, we arrived at the first spot in the morning – Pasadena City Hall, where a big Christmas tree standing at the front entrance. It was little rain and temperature was quite low, but both of us were quite excited for the holiday decoration. Here we started.
UCLA Royce Hall was the second spot. Gorgeous architecture as usual. We shot around sunset time by mixing natural light and flash lights. We chose Santa Monica 3rd Promenade as our night shot location with beautiful lighting and nice music. Christmas is on the way.
