A baby in natural sleeping state is still with a sense of quiet awareness. He’s not worried about the dried up tears or flakes of skin on it’s body. He no longer has to look to anything to give him a sense of fulfillment or satisfaction, because he is already there outside of mother and into the world. Real baby portraits because nothing in life is as perfect as imperfection. We should embrace our natural state.
Welcome to the world, baby Donovan.
There’s a quote that says “the busier you are, the more intentional you must be.” And we know plenty of talented artists who have been quite busy living life with passion and intent. One of these individuals is Japanese calligrapher and friend, Aoi Yamaguchi. We had a chance to catch up with her and her husband before the holidays and she’s always a happy shining gem of inspiration and positivity!
With the new year upon us very soon, here’s us wishing all those that we love and support all the intentional hope for joy and prosperity in the new year!
Talk about bright eyes… this little guy is going to be a heartbreaker.
Your flawless little face
Fingers than tangle with mine
Brings a feel of purity
Which is just so divine
Your unfathomable sounds
Your heart-melting smile
Everything that you do
Makes life worthwhile
Happy 2nd birthday, little one!
There are twenty years to go
And twenty ways to know
Enjoy the ride
The faithful and the low
That’s the hide – and that’s the heart of it
That’s the long – and that’s the short of it
That’s the best – and that’s the test in it
That’s the doubt – doubt, not trust in it
That’s the sight – and that’s the sound of it
That’s the gift – and that’s the trick in it
That’s the whole – and that’s the part of it
Happy 20th anniversary to my dear friends, Mark and Rossan!
So much love and an infinite twenty years to go ❤
When we first met the Canios, there was only two… mama and papa.
Fast forward to now and six years later, and we’ve got two little pretty little gems in the mix.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Another precious button in the world. Our swaddling skills are really exceptional by now 😉
Welcome to the world, baby Elise!
It’s always a joy seeing these two boys for their annual portraits. Big brother, Aidan, is a natural model. Check out some of the poses he’s been throwing down each year!
It’s graduation time and we’ve been busy capturing several graduates in front of the camera this summer 🙂
Congratulations to all the graduates of 2017!
A room is not a room without natural light, and in this case, there is room with a natural light of love for ChenLu and Don. These two share a love for architecture and actually met at work in their architecture firm. To make their session extra special, they wanted to revisit the firm they used to work at to recreate some of the scenes of their everyday interactions at work that eventually led them to fall in love.
There never seems like there’s never enough time and that’s probably because it flies by so quickly. Antoinette and Brian reached out to us recently to do their five year anniversary portraits and it’s crazy because we feel like we just shot their wedding a few months ago.
