Field of Dreams

She giggled, she sang, she played, she danced and she posed like a little model.  Today she lived in a field of dreams. This is my first attempt at a Behind the Scenes Video.  She did such a fabulous job.  I will add the images from her session in another post since the resolution of the pictures have been compressed in this video.

A huge thank you to my precious model. You were amazing and I had so much fun working with you today. I am so blessed that we have this day documented in images and videos

This old Irish Blessing is my prayer for.

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon you face,

and may the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

He's already rockin' a fohawk, Niners gear and a precious smile. He looks exactly like his Daddy, exactly! He is such a sweet little man... I could hold him all day! Sweetest blessings to Baby L and his family, for now and always.

Michelle's Cottilion

Michelle just turned 18th. Her mother, sisters and family hosted a Cottilion in her honor. For those of you who do not know, a Cottilion in the Filipino culture is a celebration when a young girl turns 18 years of age. This marks when she officially becomes a young woman. This is a pre-Cottilion session we had a the Legion of Honor here in San Francisco. It is a tourist spot, so when she came out with her gorgeous dress on, people would stop and ask her where was the groom. She would bashfully giggle and sweetly explain her cultural traditions with complete strangers. Everyone gave her wishes for a wonderful birthday. Michelle is smart, fun, gracious, lovely, kind, athletic, compassionate... I could go one. She is one of those unique people that when she smiles it warms your souls. I hope you sense that as you look through these pictures. Happy Birthday Michelle

Eden and Johnny

Eden and Johnny's had been sweethearts in high school.  On this day their hearts were united as one and are now husband and wife.

God bless you both as you have begun your married lives together.

They sang this song at their wedding reception, it was so meaningful and sweet. I wish there was a recording of it so I could link you to it... but for now here is a YouTube rendition with the lyrics. It will open in another page, so enjoy the music as you look through through their wedding blog.

Cynthia and Jerry

I am very behind on blogging this year so I thought I would start with this lovely couple's wedding. Cynthia and Jerry are a perfect match for one another. She chose to see Jerry and have their special session before the wedding. It was beautiful to see Jerry's reaction when he saw her in her wedding dress for the first time. She was his princess and he couldn't have been happier. They shared a few tears of joy, laughter, lots of love and even snuck in a few kisses. They were both so happy. Cynthia asked me to create a special image reflecting their theme. A huge thanks to Nathan ( ) for his photoshop expertise in helping create the final image. May they always keep the laughter flowing as begin their lives together. Sweetest blessing.
