Best Wishes to You and Yours!

Another year is coming to an end.

Personally and professionally, 2018 was the busiest year of all for us. I am so grateful profoundly to new and old families - and to make wonderful friends at the studio and to have healthy and happy teen boys ( both are taller than me now ~ surprise!) at home.

There are so many reasons to be thankful, but most of all, I want to thank you all for your trust and support. Thank you so much. It became such a sweet ritual to make my yearly holiday ornaments for all our clients this time of the year. When I decorate my Christmas tree with those familiar happy faces, it just remind me of how much love and happiness that there was to capture.

Thank you so much for sharing your life with me. I can not wait to catch up with you in the new year! Wishing you the very special holidays and the most exciting new year!

Here is my holiday family picture of the year. The picture was taken when we went to Big Island last summer. Like Dr. Seuss said once, "you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory," it is so true every moment counts... and when I look at this picture of us, there are fireworks bursting in my heart with joy and thanks. With all said, I want all YWP family and friends to have the most value of memories to treasure.

Much love from my family to yours.

What I want you to remember...

Hi~ hope all of you are enjoying the beautiful fall season - one of my favorite time of the year. There are only TEN weeks left in the year 2018. Can you believe it? I can’t!!!!

Last night, I was posting a cute little video of a lifestyle session that I did few weeks ago for a good and long time client of mine. She has beautiful three children aged from 6month to five year old and thus we had so so so much fun during the photo shoot. You see, none of us has any plan as everything happens spontaneously. Even if we had a great plan, it was not going to work. Six of us (including the photographer) were just there to enjoy the time together… and here is what it looks like.

Instagram always makes my video in lower quality, I wanted to share it here again with a better quality.

✨CELEBRATING LIFE✨ - if someone asks me what I do for living, this will be my answer. There are so many little things we can cherish only if we can remember... some times, I blame my brain why I can not remember what my my kids said or did that I loved so much at that time. And believe me, I thought I could remember it forever. All those little moments fade away as time went by. When my boys were little, they spoke Korean, and they said the most precious words to each other... and played pretend games.. and jumped up and down giggling.. Most of the times, I “stop” them because it was dangerous, or dirty, or just too loud. Many years later(probably too many), I miss that crazy and wonder-ful time the most. I have two boys that are 15 and 13. And my house is quiet and calm.. I love my boys and quiet house, don’t get me wrong. But you know what? I miss that time so much. I bet you will, too. That’s why, I photograph the LIFE as is. How beautifully amazing it is! I collected about 60 images from a lifestyle photo session to show you what I would cherish if I were the mom for my client and made into a 60 sec video. I call it “CELEBRATION”. See it for yourself, it is truly what LIFE is all about. Love and together!!! That’s what I photograph and what I want YOU to enjoy.

!! little bit of housekeeping stuff~ !!

We are super excited about our Holiday Family Sessions in two weeks (11/3 ~11/4)! We have ONE last opening and if you are interested, please call 202.870.6773 NOW.

If you are interested in getting your family’s LIFESTYLE photography session at your home (or at the studio), there is also ONE last opening in November, so please call 202.870.6773 NOW.

Other than that, enjoy the beautiful season… don’t get carried away by busyness of running around. There is nothing more important than your LIFE = LOVE + TOGETHERNESS!!!

Until next time, XOXO - Kyung

I thought it is just right time to post the short movie of my client from few weeks back. When it is fall, especially it is around this time - Thanksgiving, we appreciate more of everything we have. Our kids, family, and friends... are among many others we are thankful for. For me, I am appreciating you today!

Before you go out into the world, wash your face in the clear crystal of praise. Bury each yesterday in the fine linen and spices of thankfulness.
— Charles Spurgeon

May this Thanksgiving be a bountiful one in feast, friends, family and fun! 

So grateful for having you a part of the Yellowhale Family! 

Love, Kyung

 

 

Happy Holidays from my family to yours
