Belly, Baby, and Beyond

These three words that start with B are perfect for what we do with our newborn clients. At first, it did not occur as BBB- but Yellowhale has begun as a newborn baby portrait studio almost fifteen years ago. We’ve have been serving hundreds of babies (many of whom are now in Highschools.) and most of our baby clients stayed with our studio for decade so that we documented how the family grew over time…

It is such an amazing experience for both me and my clients because a. I get to enjoy watching the kids (Obviously!) grow and b. they don’t have to worry about trying to find their old pictures…( it is all with me~). Other than these practical reasons, there are tons of emotional value that we can not describe here. It almost feels like I am part of your family… but takes pictures of the family events for you? I love it!

It all began when I realized how quickly the baby grows (Especially the first year!) and as the baby grow, the family life changes dramatically. I still feel that there is no end of evolving in my family. My boys are almost sixteen and fourteen - they are still adorable, but they are like my friends now. We talk about issues and troubles, too. For sure, they eat more than I do and they are taller than I am. The point is that I miss the little things from when they were little… SO MUCH!!!!

I will write about it in detail when things get slow down a little. I so wanted to remember little details of my boys when they were tiny little babies. How I hold them, and how I adore them… and even how they cried~~~~~ are all precious. Sometimes, I am surprised by Facebook memories pop up with some images from many years back. I don’t even know how I forgot about them? But I did forget a lot of memories (that I thought I would remember forever~).

Back to the subject… As a family photographer, I had many times when I remember more than the mom does about her baby… because I have been visually taking notes from the day one. I suggest to all my newborn clients to schedule multiple photography sessions for the first year just because the baby grow so rapidly. The change is so dramatic, if you blink, the baby will grow into a little human!!!

Here is an example of Susan’s little Girl Magnolia’s first year images. 99 images from NEWBORN, SIX MONTH, ONE YEAR photo sessions. It shows exactly what I mean… by Belly, Baby, and Beyond! If you are expecting, just like any other planning you do for the baby’s arrival, it is really important plan you need to do! How you will document the precious moments of your baby’s first year and beyond…

xoxo, until next time,


Two Brothers

kyung jung

Adding a new family member is exciting, especially when it is the second child, it gets far more dynamic and fascinating. I have been documenting this stunning family since 2013 and had the privilege to witness them growing.

Watch the big brother trying to help calm his little brother giving pacifier... hugging & watching his new and forever best friend lovingly. It is so amazing to see how the two brothers are bonding at a first sight. It is so precious! It reminds me of my boys when they were young...

So thrilled to preserve the priceless moments of the two for many years... What can a family photographer ask for more?

Booking Feb & Mar 2016 Sessions - 50% off session fee!

kyung jung

It has been a while to post a blog entry. Hope you all had a great year! It has been amazing for me, may be I should say it was an epic spring and summer season. There were many wonderful travels to Europe and an amazing family vacation to Cancun - of course the studio got busier this year looking forward to launching a brand new service early 2016. It came and went in a blink of an eye and now I am working like crazy with fall sessions and making tons of holiday cards already. Today, while I am excited to announce that the remaining 2015 sessions are fully booked, I feel really bummed that I can not take any more of my favorite clients' fall sessions. If you were thinking of booking a session with Yellowhale this year, I do apologize for not being able to add you this time. However, please take this amazing opportunity to book your session in Feb/March 2016 at 50% off of session fee.  

As it is so hard to say good bye to summer (yes, I am STILL holding on to the beautiful memories from our summer vacation...), I am posting one of my favorite sessions from August. I have been documenting this beautiful boy "J" since when he was  in mom's belly. I will be meeting with him again before this year is over.

Watch how he runs around and hear he reads his favorite books, and don't miss him playing golf with his daddy.... This short video just wraps up my heart with beautiful moments. It is such a strong reminder of how much I appreciate being a family photographer to BE THERE with you.

1 year old baby "W" -

kyung jung

One of my favorite little angels is baby "W". I can not believe that she is turning one soon - I've been photographing this incredible family and it means beyond special because I've known Dana, the beautiful mom, before she had a baby back in 2008. She owns the best baby boutique, Daisy Baby in Bethesda. Witnessing a growing family is such rewarding experience that I become obsessed with keep going back to the first session of the same family. When we were scouting few outdoor locations for the session, I envisioned the scene to be surrounded by lots of flowers for the family. I fell in love with the cherry blossoms and tulips in the garden when I visited Brook Side Garden, Silver Spring  and thought it was perfect! And these images came out exactly how visioned the family's life filled with love, happiness, and joy. I am in LOVE~

Dana! You are so blessed to have it all, two adorable girls and a loving husband. I can not wait to continue to capture the essence of your life!

Then & Now

It is absolutely amazing to watch an adorable newborn to grow into even more beautiful. The funny part of my job is I get to guess how pretty the baby will turn into in six months and can never get it right. They are 100% always go above and beyond cute or pretty. Look at this gorgeous baby "C" now~ I bet you will never imagine how beautiful she will be in six months!

Below pictures are from her newborn session. (Just so you know!)
