Madelynn || Korean 1st Birthday || Virginia Photographer

Madelynn aka Maddy celebrated her 1st birthday this past weekend with all the people that love her very much.  She celebrated in her traditional korean hanbok and did the traditional doljabi, where she stared at the objects in front of her for an eternity.  She didn’t see anything that she liked – the $100 bill, the food, microphone, ball of string, stethoscope, or pen. Once someone threw down a credit card into the pile, she happily grabbed it with a gigantic smile. Her parents are definitely in trouble in a few years.  The party theme was PINK, which is fitting for this little princess.  Cakes by JB made another incredible cake for the party, she is definitely a talented person so message me if you are in need of a cake.  Another friend custom made cookies for the party as well which was equally delicious.  On a last note, I feel sorry for whoever Maddy brings home to meet her father and uncles, she definitely has an entourage of protection. Happy 1st Birthday Maddy!!

Susan + Guang || 5 year Anniversary || Myrtle Beach, SC

Susan and Guang recently celebrated their 5 year anniversary.  They got to celebrate it with close friends down in Myrtle Beach on a weekend golf getaway.  Both of them are really into golf so they wanted some pictures to portray this new obsession.  We hit up one of the many golf courses in Myrtle Beach to capture their love for each other and their love of the game.  You have to admit, you love their golf outfits! To many more years to come, congrats Susan and Guang!

Birdie || 1st Birthday || VA Children Photography

Elyse aka Birdie turned 1 today. It’s amazing to see how fast she grew up considering it feels like just yesterday she was rocking her tutu and sunglasses. Her family started calling her Birdie because she started coo-ing like a bird which you can see in one of the pictures below. This coo-ing technique helped Birdie out when it was time to blow out the candle, it was really cute.  So the birthday party was bird themed with a bird cage and bird houses for the guests to paint.  This activity was well taken by the adults more than the kids at the party, it was a birdhouse painting  throw down.  There was also a customized birdhouse cake from Cakes by JB.  Let me know if you’re interested in a customized cake, she does an excellent job as you can see. Birdie had a fun time picking at the cake and eating the little flower decorations. Happy Birthday Birdie!!

Joey + Baby Ma || VA Maternity Photography

Joey and Baby Ma joined me on Sunday afternoon for a quick maternity session before Baby Ma enters the world.  You may recognize the name Ma because of Chef Tim Ma from my previous post.  Baby girl Ma is about to enter the world any day now keeping both mom and dad anxiously waiting.  We headed out to Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia which gave us a nice peaceful backdrop.  Congrats to Joey and Tim! I can’t wait to meet her when she finally makes her entrance.
