Carson turns {ONE} | New Orleans, LA Photographer

I seriously am blessed to be able to photograph all these cute kids ! Carson did not like me at all though. lol .. This session was the longest because he would not stop crying at first… until we gave him a lollipop. You can see tears in his big beautiful eyes while mommy tried to comfort him with a kiss below.











Carson was very quick at smashing his first cake.

{ J & K Engagement }| New Orleans, LA Photographer

Kim & Jason are getting married next month! They were so busy and haven’t thought about taken any pictures until now. They had to drive back to New Orleans from Florida Saturday night just so we can shoot their session early Sunday morning… wow… so little time but I’m very impressed at how much they’ve prepared for their shoot. Thank God for great weather last weekend ! Christie and I had so much fun shooting this gorgeous couple.. lots of giggles and kisses… Enjoy everyone !
















M&C + Madelyn & Mason | New Orleans, LA Photographer

When Marie first contacted me back in December for some Family Christmas Portraits, I was booked. She wanted some new pictures of her 2 adorable kids so we decided January will be best. We didn’t have the nicest weather (windy & chilly) but we made the best out of it. We did most of the session in their beautiful home..and here are some from our session. Enjoy !











We then headed outdoor for some pictures… they braved the cold winds. *brrrrr*






Mason is ONE | New Orleans, LA Photographer

This is my 3rd time shooting with Mason. He’s such a big boy now. Looking back at his first session always make me smile. He has always been so serious…or maybe he just doesnt like me . haha …

One of his popular pictures at 2 months old. LOVE it! He does NOT like wearing a shirt ! =P

Here’s a few from this past Sunday. We were supposed to do a circus theme but mommy couldn’t get the outfit in time for the session so we came up with this. He enjoyed the popcorn more than his cake. lol









K & C + Theodore | New Orleans, LA Photographer

This little man knows exactly how to pose. He’s such a natural at this!!

After many cancellations due to weather, we finally decided on a date, and it turned out beautifully. I had so much fun hanging out with this family a few weeks ago. Take a look at their family session in City Park down below >>>>>>>>

My last post of the year. Welcome 2014 !!! Happy New Years everyone !!!















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 !!
