Kailyn’s Turning ONE | New Orleans, LA Photographer

Meet Kailyn ! Isn’t she adorable ?! I Love LOVE all the outfits & accessories mommy got her. I’m glad we decided to shoot indoor because of the chilly weather. We were able to fit all 5 beautiful outfits into our session.

I sure love shooting 1st birthday sessions. They’re so much fun .. especially the cake smash part. Kailyn’s eyes lit up when she saw the cake and wanted to eat it right away. Everyone cheered her on while she enjoyed smashing her cake. Tooo stinkin’ cute !

John & Chi Engagement Ceremony | New Orleans, LA Photographer

In our Vietnamese culture, it is a tradition for the man’s family to arrange a tea ceremony for him to propose to his bride to be. The families get together at the bride’s family home where the groom and his family arrive bringing gifts that include jewelry, cakes, betel leaves, areca nuts, fruit, wine and a whole roast pork. All of the gifts are presented on trays covered with red which symbolizes good luck and fortune.

Here’s a peek at John & Chi’s engagement ceremony this past Sunday. Good Luck to both of you !! ^_^

Aidan & Phuong My – Christmas 2013

Oh how I love these two ! My daughter & her bff {My best friend’s nephew, Aidan} They’ve been modeling for me ever since I had my first DSLR. It’s been 4 years, and each year we try to do one session. As they grow older, it has become easier for me because they get along so well with each other. I wonder how many more sessions they would let me photograph until they say “No” lol .

I saw this vineyard on instagram and instantly fell in love! I will definitely be back in the Spring for more sessions here. Thanks Hongie for coming with us…and for everything else !! ❤ you! We got lost on our way there but luckily still had some sun left for us to do a quick session. Although it was a bit chilly as the sun sets, the kiddos braved the cold..and that's why they deserved Chuckee Cheese afterwards. =)

PS. Please excuse Aidan's "new style" tie. Hongie & I did not know how to tie a tie {obviously}…and we didnt see it sticking out to the side until after our session =/

Here's a few from their first session {Spring 2010}

Silly faces

Aidan is such a gentleman … ❤

I met up with Chi Lynn’s family at Freedom Park last weekend for their family Christmas session. Didn’t know what I was thinking but I arrived an hour early, thinking that our session was at that time. lol.. So I walked around and check out the park while waiting =) love this place too !!! Gotta say Charlotte has some great scenery for pictures… might have to travel up here more often.

They arrived on time and ready to smile for the camera. I love that they love taking pictures =) Mom coordinate their clothes so well too. Good job Chi Lynn !

Lots of hugs, smiles and kisses. Enjoy !!

H & G { Maternity Session } | Charlotte, NC Photographer

Last week was a perfect day for a maternity session. I met up with Hung & Giang at the Botanical Garden and OH MY! such a gorgeous place. My top 5 locations for pictures =D

This mama-to-be is so tiny, I couldn’t even tell she was pregnant from behind. lol …. Hung and Giang are expecting their first and I’m so glad they asked me to shoot their bump. They are not finding out the sex of the baby until the baby shower {January 2014} – but hoping for a little princess. Regardless of whether it is a boy or a girl, I’m sure he/she will get all the good looks from both mom & dad ^_^ Congrats to you guys & good luck !!!

Is it a BOY or a GIRL ? =)
