ISPWP 2013 Fall Contest Awards

An early X'mas present for me from ISPWP! The results of the latest ISPWP contest couldn't have come any time better as a consolation for me while I am working non-stop at high gear during this holiday season. Many thanks to my wedding couples, Eva & Steve and Lyn & Brandon, for allowing me to capture their beautiful moments of their big day! And congrats to all the winners and participants of the contest!

Santa Clara City Nutcracker Ballet 2013

I knew I could not go by this wonderful event without some stage pictures. So during the rest moments for the portrait session, I snatched my opportunities to take a peek at the final dress rehearsals of this year's Santa Clara City Nutcracker Ballet performance. The pictures speak for themselves. All I can say is that the dance instructor, all the dancers, the parents and the entire crew supporting this event were just marvelous! Such a wonderful performance!

Playful Siblings (Mercer Island, WA)

I had a photo session with Deborah and her 4 kids - 2 boys and 2 girls. These teens and pre-teens were so full of energy and led me running around the park, finding the secret paths and having fun splashes by the lake. Seeing them so carefree just made me want to go back in time. I hope these sweet and fun-loving moments I've captured (ok, I won't mention what happened behind the camera!) will serve them wonderful memories for years to come.
