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!

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 ❤

They say that when our bodies change from lifetime to lifetime, our eyes stay the same and you can recognize someone from a previous lifetime in this manner.

Dahae is one of these individuals whom this connection was sparked.
She was a bridesmaid for her friend, Michelle’s, wedding, whom we had shot a few years back in San Francisco. She went out of her way to offer a helping hand the entire day while sharing her hopes of one day meeting the man of her dreams.

***

Well… she recently found the man of her dreams and is happily married.
She met Erik in Sweden and it’s quite fateful that their passion and work in music led them to each other. They tied the knot twice, once in Sweden and then in Korea.
It’s funny because we think it is again fateful that work brought them both out to San Francisco again so that we could catch up with her and her new hubbie, Erik.

Aurelie reached out to us wanting to gift a portrait session for her boyfriend, who’d been wanting nice portraits of themselves ever since they met. We thought it was very endearing when they said they wanted to document places that were significant to the beginnings of their relationship and relive some of their first date moments 🙂

aj1aj3aj4aj5These two are absolutely smitten with each other and we’re so happy we were able to help them relive their happy beginnings ❤
