The Shih Family

It had been way too long since we had seen my family and we finally got a chance last week for my cousin’s wedding in California.  Afterward, my boys got to spend a ton of time with their cousins, Amanda (7), Jalen (5) and Abby (3) running around on the beaches of Laguna and San Diego – do they know how good they have it?? Geesh.  Anyway, I was so excited to do pics of the whole Shih family including mom Yvonne and dad Wes.

Love you guys!  xo ing

Leora at Two-and-a-Half

I couldn’t wait to post some quick pics from yesterday’s photo shoot with Leora, age 2.5, from Hoboken.  SO ridiculously adorable with a personality to match.  She walked in like she owned the place and by the end of the shoot we were little buddies. She was calling me by name, cooking me “lunch” at the toy kitchen, telling me when she was ready for wardrobe changes.  Leora and her mom and dad, Evita and Jake, make such an beautiful family and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to do their family portraits.

Hoping Leora will come over and make me lunch again soon! 😉 xo

The Johnson/Newton Cousins

Sunday was the perfect day for a photo shoot in Hamilton Park with cousins Emily (9), William (6), Evelyn (5) and Olivia (3).   Moms (and sis-in-laws) Virginia and Mia arranged for this shoot to have the pics back just in time for Grandpa’s 70th Birthday party on Father’s Day, and I felt so honored to be able to take the kids’ photographs for such a big occasion!

The kids were all smiley and in great moods which always makes it fun.  I, of course, was….a little animated…trying to get those smiles to all happen at the same time.  Lucky for me, the park was full of people since it was such a lovely day out.  Whatever it takes to get the shot, right?  Because seriously, how adorable are these four??
