Anyone else done with this week? 🙋🏻‍♀️ I just want to hop in the car and drive. I don’t know where, but I need to get away. For now, I’m headed outside to enjoy the sunshine. What are you up to this weekend? ☀️ ...

Happy Friday! That's a warp on this week and I've heard we might have sun all weekend!
☀️
How are you doing, friends? Do you feel things are starting to ease up a little? It's been such a wild time for all of us. But hey, summer is almost here and I CAN NOT WAIT!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wishing you beautiful weekend filled with snuggles and sunshine!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Love,
Xoxo

I am still at home like everyone else, and going through my archives; re-discovering my career path, re-editing my old photos, celebrating my old gigs, and success stories. This is one of them. If I am not mistaken this is one of the first weddings (if not one of the first ones) that got published with a multiple page coverage on @martha_weddings. I think it was 10 pages in total. I was over the clouds. I still keep that magazine. ⁠
⁠
I feel honored to shoot this beautiful wedding and meet this lovely couple!⁠

You know I never shared any indoor film images from this session, and I don’t know what I was thinking! Having more time to play around with film for fun and doing what I love has given me a nice perspective on beauty and light. ✨⠀

There is always risk where love is involved.  There will be bruises, cuts, and scrapes.  There will be wounds.  Some that cut deep. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When Alex and I first met, neither of us were ready for a relationship.  We were both selfish, afraid, insecure, defensive, and reasonably stupid.  We found each other working in a Parisian pâtisserie, and he was my boss. (My, my, how the tables have turned. ☺) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our story seems very romantic, but trust me, it was a mess.  Exhibit A: We would FIGHT all. the. time.  I’m not talking about adorable little spats that resolved themselves after a power nap and a Snickers.  I’m talking door slamming, insult hurling, blood pressure mounting, expletive screaming arguments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Five years ago, my level of French was equivalent to that of a first grader’s and Alex’s English consisted of broken up phrases he had gleaned from the subtitles of How I Met Your Mother.  Our arguments sometimes took hours and days to sludge through because we would be drowning in broken communication and weak pride. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although we shared a similar “Asian-Immigrant-Child-in-Anglo-Saxon-ish-Society” background, I was still culturally American, and he was culturally French.  We fought about everything under the Sun from a certain inflection in our voices, to a specific choice of vocabulary, to a misinterpreted expression on our faces.  You name it, we fought about it.  To Alex, ever the hot blooded Frenchman, our fighting meant that our relationship would thrive, because it was “passionate,” and to me, the conflict avoidant American, our fighting meant that things could never work out between us because we just had too many differences. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day, When it's cold outside I've got the month of May.

This cheerful lemony door had us at first glance found touring and photographing in the iconic neighborhoods of Palm Springs. Interiors exteriors and decor of a well designed home are one of my favorites to photograph during travels. What are some of your favorite things to snap during your travels? ~

💜 At this sweet family’s session little Abigail couldn’t get enough of the wildflowers we came across. By the end of our session she had picked one of the prettiest little bouquets I’ve ever seen! 💐 I just love Oklahoma and still so happy to be back! 💛 #LaPecheJournal

Just over here trying to make a case for more outdoor newborn sessions 🌿⠀
⠀
I know birth may not have been ideal for those mamas who had a baby the last few months, maybe your significant other couldn’t be there for your ultrasounds, or you’re still feeling unsure about that indoor session you had your heart set on.⠀
⠀
I hear you, mama. I wish our new normal didn’t involve masks and a change to the way we approach photos of you with your little one. But look at how beautiful and unique your photos can still be ❤️⠀
⠀
@lauraryanphotography thank you for letting me document these early days with your sweet girl.⠀

A D V E N T U R E ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pictured above is my daughter Aimee running towards some pigeons at Place des Vosges in Paris.  It was our last day during our family trip this February before COVID hit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The first time my husband and I took Aimee to Paris, she was only 3 months old.  We were first time parents and I don’t know if we were foolish or just naïve, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.  Those 11 hours trapped in a steel cabin full of quiet, dozing passengers on an international redeye flight with a screaming colicky baby who refused to sleep anywhere but upright, in our arms, while pacing constantly, remain seared in my early memories of motherhood as one of the worst experiences ever.  I think I was so petrified, anxious, and sleep deprived, that my body thought I was probably having a near death experience due to the endless cortisol coursing through my system.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She’s four years old now, and has now travelled on a plane six times in her little life.  I am pretty sure she thinks the entire world consists of California, Hawaii, and Paris. (What a life!) But despite the traumatizing experience I had travelling with her at 3 months old, I’m so grateful that we have been fortunate enough to take her to experience other cultures and see the world outside of the 57 and 60 Freeway.  I’m convinced that it has helped her immensely to foster a love of learning about others, being curious about her surroundings, and even a love of language – realizing that while in France, it wasn’t only mommy & papa who she could communicate in French with! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Raise your hand if this relentless rain makes you want to lay in bed all day 🙋🏻‍♀️ My kids, however, didn’t get the memo and are already bouncing off walls. Mamas, what are you doing to keep your kids busy today? Help a sister out 🤣

Let's talk PARENTING WORKSHOPS 🙏

Since becoming a Mother almost 7 years ago now I have completed Triple P, Magic 123, and more recently Circle of Security.  Why?  Because we as parents each have our own little tool kits we have built over the years and I'll take any extra "tools" I can get!  Each workshop made a lot of sense to me but raising two young boys (and with one diagnosed on the spectrum) Circle of Security really stood out for Hubby and I.  We just finished the workshop last week.  The idea of our children going out confidently and coming back into the circle is at the front of my mind throughout the day now and as they get older and into those dreaded teenage years i'm hopeful that by keeping our hands on the circle and repairing ruptures our boys will be confident in knowing we are here.  So let's talk parenting workshops!  I'd love to hear your experience.  Perhaps you have read a life changing parenting book?  Share your recommendations in the comments below, if love to hear them!

@drizabelolson killing it on the beach as my muse. 
𝙈𝙐𝙎𝙀. /myo͞oz/ As a verb, to muse is to consider something thoughtfully. As a noun, it means a person — especially a woman — who is a source of artistic inspiration. In mythology, the Muses were nine goddesses who symbolized the arts and sciences. Today, a muse is a person who serves as an artist's inspiration. #blcommunity

I didn’t always believe in Jesus.  In fact, before I knew him, I used to hate him.  My contempt for him was equivalent to the abandonment I felt in my damaged heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
God was for the girls in white dresses, the ones who sat up straight in wooden pews, with soft milky skin, who prayed before meals and uttered delightful words.  Jesus was the haloed elegantly robed figure with manicured brown hair who said things like “Thou,” and “Shalt Not.” He was the big guy in the sky waiting to send me into an eternal grave of flames and bones because I hid the stalks of my broccoli in a napkin during dinner and I flushed them down the toilet later.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
God was not for me.  I was defective and damaged.  His stained glass windows were too bright and too majestic for the tin roofed shack that I huddled in: filled with secrets, abuse, and lies.  I expected him to curse me as much as I cursed myself, because God was too holy and too pure for someone like me.  Me, who at a young age believed she was partially responsible for the cancer that ravaged her mother’s body.  Me, who played mediator in my parent’s marriage for the many years that it was falling apart.  Me, who would starve myself in order to look acceptable.  Me, who was in a perpetual battle of irreparable melancholy and depression.  Me, who denounced his existence and ridiculed those who believed in him because it hurt too much to acknowledge that if He did exist, that he had willfully forsaken me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But then one day He came to me, in my chaos and in my mess.  He was not a haloed white robed figure with manicured brown hair.  He was a man bruised and bloodied in dingy tattered rags.  On his head, a crown of thorns and the weight and ridicule of the world.  In his hands full of scars, he held my heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Finished up a one year package with this cutie last week.  It was so special to capture him at 4, 8, and 12 months and watch him grow into such a sweet boy.  I almost cried walking away from the session at the privilege of seeing life unfold with people.

There is something inexplicably precious to me about sharing moments like this with my couples.
-
I am a witness of joy & commitment coming together like the two souls that become one on a wedding day, and those expressions of love will continue to provide me with endless inspiration 💛
-
It’s a gift to have the honor of capturing something as special as a wedding, and whether the celebration is large or small, grand or simple, I count myself SO privileged to be your witness.
-
This is one of my very favorite captures from 2019 (actually, maybe one of my top photos ever), made even sweeter by the kindness of the two people in it.
⏳ Cannot wait to get back to moments like this!

Orange doesn't always have to be in-yer-face-BRIGHT. I love subtle orange-hues, like when the sun hits red hair in just the right way or a toffee rose bathed in that Parisienne sunrise glow! 🧡☀️

I believe that art was given to us as a means to see/hear/taste/experience who God is as the first Creator 🌎 By it, we can enjoy beauty and understand life in new ways.
-
A couple days ago, I shared about a tattoo that I have on my ribs. It’s a cross in the shape of nails driven through a skull & serpent with peonies growing around them. These represent the true meaning of Easter:
• Jesus, the Son of God, who loved us unto death willingly gave up His life (cross of nails)
• to pay for/crush our sin (serpent),
• and was resurrected on the third day, conquering death itself (skull).
• New life (peonies) exists for all who believe & follow Him.
-
👉🏼 This artwork reveals truth about Christ and who I am in light of what He’s done; its a reminder I need to see because I am often tempted to put too much of my self worth in what I do. My identity comes from something far greater than what I can accomplish in life as an artist or photographer.
-
At the end of the day (at the end of all our days), so much of what we’ve invested our time & effort in are not eternal or ultimately satisfying. In seasons of hardship/pain/loss/uncertainty like the one we are in now, I think it’s important to step back and ask ourselves what we are striving for & why.
-
I’ve always seen sunlight in photographs as a reminder of the presence of God. So when you see this image, my hope is that it makes you think of the presence of the One who made all things, yet who sits with you in your pain, and shows you the way of lasting joy & peace 💛
-
If you made it to the end of this, here’s a gold star 💁🏻‍♀️🌟 and thank you for taking the time to listen. You may completely dismiss this after you finish reading, but I’m asking you to pause + consider the implications of what Easter truly means before you scroll on.

Hope is alive and his name is Jesus

So grateful to have captured Joyce & Mark on the brink of their adventure into parenthood, baby Kwon is so loved already ✨
-
Missing my island in the Pacific a little extra after delivering this gallery and wrapping up another, but it looks like it’ll be a while before I get to go back *le sigh*. For now, I’ll just keep looking through these photos and waiting patiently until another Hawai’i trip is possible!
-
👉🏼 How have you been keeping busy at home during this quarantine? We’ve been playing games and...doing taxes haha

I’ll be honest, I didn’t take coronavirus seriously at first. I assumed it wouldn’t affect me because of my age and state of health, but I soon realized how selfish that was. Just because I will likely survive doesn’t mean I’m incapable of passing it on. A blasé approach to health & safety could jeopardize others who may not as easily live through this.
-
All that to say, this virus is undoubtedly having a massive effect on our world and on our industry. Clients, if you are worried about your wedding or upcoming session, let’s tackle this together and figure out a plan. I’m here for you 💛

2019 for me was a year of so many realisation! 
I have reached the high and the low! 
It was the year when I did so many  compromises for people who honestly don’t deserve my time and effort and for people who 💯💯deserved it and who helped me to know myself better and to be a better version of me! 
I salute you all!

People have been telling us to go to Rattlesnake ever since we moved to Washington, and it *finally* happened last weekend! Let me tell ya:
It 👏🏼 did 👏🏼 not 👏🏼 disappoint 👏🏼
-
Currently waiting for my flight to UT but I may work on more of this session in the air because I‘m just over the moon with how it turned out!
On the other hand, I also stayed up way too late packing last night (managed to remember everything except for my cute neck scarf and shoe inserts 🤷🏻‍♀️), so a plane snooze may be in order...we’ll see what happens 💭
-
Also: comment or send me your SLC/Utah must-sees & recommendations!!

"Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine..." Oh this song has been with me for so so long.. danced on it in an almost white dress, spent late late nights listening to it, early mornings humming it and... whenever there are a cart laden with strawberries... then this is the song!😍

Madam Lola...so painterly in this picture ♡♡♡ Oh they have our hearts!!!

She is so hard to photograph... either a big black blur or she turns her face away... but this time she did not expect it... probably cause my phone was hidden in my shoe and I was lying on a yoga mat... so she never saw me coming 😆
