Get family pictures done early this year with my simple summer sessions! Within half the time of a regular photo session, I will be sure to bring out your family’s best moments together. This means there will be more than enough time to get that great traditional group pose for the family wall as well as the fun lifestyle shots for your memory books.

When is it again? June 14 (Friday) and June 15 (Saturday)
How long is it? 30-45min
What do I get? one 8×10 mounted print for extra durability, 8 digital files on a disc and a 6 month online gallery of the entire session
How much? $350 for a family of six (add $25 each additional person)
I will require a $50 deposit to hold your spot. The remaining balance can be paid the day of the session.

For a limited time I will offer those who book before the 12th of March a $25 discount and two additional digital files. So that is $325 for a beautiful 8×10 photo, 10 digital files and 6 months of online access to the rest of your pictures!

Spots fill up fast so if you are interested please contact me here.

I had the privilege of photographing this lovely baby shower put on by the talented Mood Events & Productions.  Every detail was considered from the vintage tablecloths to the baby shower banner.  My favorite details were the diy checkered sugar cone covers and the lollipop shortbread cookies! Matt and Lana did such a great job! Head on over to their blog and check out their latest projects.  You can find their DIY post on the checkered cone covers!









Cupcakes from Enge Chen on Vimeo.

Kelii is out of town for a while so I am left home with the kids all day long! My thoughtful sister Enge volunteered to come and stay with us for a night just to keep me company. We had all the ingredients needed for a quick cupcake baking session and a lot of time on our hands. So what started out as what we thought would be a quick hour to make the cupcakes turned out to be a four hour long ordeal. After naps, two meals and several breaks, we were able to finish the task! Whew! If you choose to watch this clip please don’t judge my flawed baking skills and dirty oven! Just warning you!

It was a fun afternoon and the kids loved it. Thanks Enge for this little piece of memory that we can treasure forever. I love watching Kenji and Emi’s faces while they view the clip over and over again. This mini film will be priceless in years to come!
Here goes the plug: anyone interested in doing something like this for their family please contact me! She is doing a portfolio building rate right now through the end of May so don’t miss out on this great opportunity.

Spring is here and there has been quite a few changes. The biggest change is that the studio is moving to another location. The new location is not very far, in fact, I’m just moving down one floor so I don’t know if it counts as a major move. This will be a good change because the floor plan is much more suited for what I want to do with the studio. As far as the new studio pricing mentioned above, if anybody would like additional information including the rates and what is offered in each package please contact me and I can email you a complete list. Thanks!
