December, 2013 Archives

It’s that time of year where we get a chance to sit back and reflect on what we’ve accomplished in the last year. I’ve been in this business for many years and we’ve met the brightest and “bestest” people along the way. And I am so glad to be in the company of such great friends. Here’s to our studio mates, Nhu Muon, Linda Tan, and Cathy Lau of Lumiani Events (thanks so much for coordinating our Holiday Soirée), and to Theresa Huang of Theresa Huang Makeup and Hair Design. Lumiani decked the back alley of our studio with the most festive scene filled with good friends to warm our hearts and great food to warm our tummies.

I also got to meet new and exciting people like James Lee (you can see him at Food Hack TV) who made the desserts. His apple caramel ice cream pops was soooo good I didn’t want to share! And the hor d’oeuvres table, credit goes to Yvonne Tsai. Her food is not only scrumptious they look so pretty too. Check her Facebook page at Bites with Flights. Glad to see Eddie Palma DJing. Really gave the event an extra kick. And thanks to all our friends (LaDawn Williams, Gloria Nguyen, Charlize & William, Lisa Larios & Family, Lisa Hong Burke, Thomas Lim and many more) who dropped by to check out our newly redesigned studio. It was exciting to see all of you. Happy Holiday’s to everyone! Hope you enjoyed yourselves.


We did the Barry’s family pictures at my Studio in Old Town Pasadena with an apropos Holiday style scene. To brighten things up a bit, I drew a cool wintery mountain scene on top of a gray backdrop. Plus a white Christmas tree and fuzzy white area rug to top it all off for a nice and fun portrait session. Oh yeah, my kids got in on the action and we did some very cool poses to make it all worth while.

Katrina and Jordan enjoyed an intimate setting for their engagement at our Studio in Old Town Pasadena.  Soon after, we walked the streets for some outdoor shots. At the Burlington Arcade this handsome couple shared a salted caramel ice cream float from Float, an adorable little coffee shop. If you’re wondering about Katrina’s beautiful curls, credit them to Kelly Zhang. I’m excited and looking forward to their wedding at the Athenaeum.
