Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Video, etc

I have fallen behind blogging and everything else, again. A year and a half ago I blogged about how crazy my commute to work was. Well, it’s still the same. On top of it, I have managed to gather more for me which leads me to spending more time at work everyday. More so, I have been extremely occupied by the work in revamping my blog/website. It’s going to be a combined site soon. I am having FLOSITES create a custom blogsite for me along with a new branding. Yes, I’m getting a new logo, a new site that will be a better representation of “Me”.

I have attended a photo workshop recently. I came out of it inspired, energized, excited and challenged about adding video to my work. I shoot with Canon 5D MK II that has HD video feature. I ended up shooting and editing a video of my friends 3-month old. I thought I would share the very first video work ever done my me. Watch it, but keep in mind that I’m a newbie here. I may be a pro-photographer, but still an amateure at video.

Sacramento Portrait Photographer: The Wake Family

How do I begin this post! I have known Don from my early days in California. When I was all alone here, struggling without any friends in a new town where I knew no one but the people I just met at work, Don was one of the ones, at my work, who made me feel like a friend they had known for years. I remember the day when Don helped me bringing home the very first and only furniture for my new apartment…a papasan chair from Pier 1.

The chair was so wide that it wouldn’t fit in my car. I met Audra at the office Christmas party. That year, Don and Audra invited us (Jason was in Ca by that time) over to their family Christmas event; they didn’t want us to feel lonely and missing families during the holidays. I was extremely touched by the invite. Although we couldn’t make it to the party that day, I remain thankful for the kindness this couple had shown to us from the very beginning. I don’t think I ever told them how I felt about it. So, Don and Audra – if you are reading this…THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for making us feel like home.

Years have passed, all of us have gone through a lot over the years. But the biggest event of all has been the new addition to the Wake family. David Alan Wake joined the family just around the Thanksgiving time last year. Don and Audra were visiting Sacramento last week when I had a chance to meet little David for the very first time. He seemed to be the cutest little thing with the most beautiful smile and big, magical eyes. And his hair…priceless

I haven’t seen Don and Audra like this ever before, they are in love with this little man and he sure brings a lot of joy to this family. We met up again over their portrait session the following weekend. It was a joy capturing their family moments. I was getting a little teary looking at them while editing the images. I hope these bring back the memories of their time in California as they grow into the life in Texas.
