For those who knows me know that I consider San Francisco bay area as my 2nd home, with friends and family it has always been a place where I can go for a quick weekend getaway. Though, with all my years of visiting the bay area, I never had the chance to spend a day to photograph an engagement session.. until recently. All thanks to this sweet couple, Silvia and Richie!
There's nothing better than to celebrate a pregnancy with some maternity photos, to document how you feel, the excitement, the anticipation, the joy and the fear of upcoming labor. Thank you Cindy for being such a trooper to walk all over the park with me. on a warm Sunday morning. Hopefully one day you'll look back at the photos with you baby boy and say "look, you were in my tummy" while thinking "OMG! you were in my tummy!". Congrats on your baby boy and I wish you a smooth and happy labor!
2013 has been one hectic year. Aside from engagements and weddings, I never really got to blog any of the portraits and family sessions. So to make up for all the lost blog posts, here are few of my favorites from the portrait and family sessions (I'll post my favorite engagement and wedding in couple of days)
So this is what happen when you put a talented artist/actress under the stage lights, an magical photo was created!
Of course using the technique of "Prisming/Hurding" by Sam Hurd, helped creating the magic straight within the camera.
Superbowl Sunday is full in effect at the Lim's household! I guess you can probably tell who we're rooting for this year :)
Wish everyone a great time watching the game, and be safe out there!
It's unexplainable, except the fact that it was love at first sight... and on January 15th, I finally understand what love at first sight really means..
Please welcome our pride and joy to the world :)
Never thought photographing your own baby shower can be this difficult, I don't think I really got into the flow of shooting since I was trying to entertain our guests and help with the setup, next time I'll just hire a photographer instead ;) Anyhow, my wife and I really got to give a huge HUGE thank you to all of our siblings, aka the baby shower committee, who spent so much time and effort to plan this party. Even though the downfall of rain limited our 80+ guests to be cramped into the house, everyone seems to enjoyed themselves. (I think the mass amount of food helped in this case).
Here are some photos, and we thank you, to all the family and friends who attended the celebration and made it a great party! We hope you all enjoyed the food and the festivity! Our lil' peanut thank you all too :)
Key ingredients for a "quickie" couple portrait session consist of four things: planning, an awesome couple, a location and a Lamborghini...
Thanks Vivian and Sule for the opportunity to photograph you two, even though Sule have the reputation of not smiling in front of the camera, I think I captured some smirks and smiles (see evidence below).
Back in late April, the wifey and I drove down to San Diego to do some portrait shoots around the city for Chris' upcoming project. Having to work with Chris in the studio for his press kitpreviously, it was definitely a pleasure and an honor to work with him again! We explored the city by foot, from San Diego Train Station, to Little Italy, then to the historic Gaslamp district, The Rooftop at the Ivy and finally stopped at the Lincoln Room where he perform every third weekend of the month. Though we only were able to stay for the day, we all had a blast and treated this more as a mini getaway than a photo session. So without further ado, here are some of my favorites from the day.
