What it is like to Experience Yellowhale Portrait

kyung jung

Every family has its own story. As a family portrait photographer - I get to enjoy the most beautiful and real family stories from how the couple fell in love, thirty-hour long labor, to first birthday, and so many other episodes. I love being part of the family stories. More over, I want to CREATE unforgettable memories for them to cherish. 

Today, my client, Jennifer and Sung visited the studio for the Big Reveal presentation of their family portraits photographed three weeks ago. We had planned this special celebration since January, selecting the style, color, location, what to wear. Jennifer and I share so much in common (like all other moms out there! ^^) how much we love our children and what the family means to us. So the designing her photo session was quite similar to what I would have done for my own family. Their children are pre teens and it is the stage where they start to feel uncomfortable smiling at the camera or hugging or kissing their mom and feel a little shy about being in front of the camera.  As I understood, her main focus of the photo session was to capture the children's natural smile (not posed or forced) and show the love of the family.  I had planned to play a little game with them to relax and have fun during the session. The session took place at the studio to create a modern, yet formal look that will go really well with her living room decor. I loved how everything we planned came together at the session and the result turned out exactly how she wanted!

Below is a short video clip that I was able to capture during the REVEAL presentation and I so wanted to share it with you all. I took this video with my iphone with their permission. ^^

After she left the studio, I received a little note from her saying...

Thank you Kyung!

You have far exceeded my expectations!! And I had high expectations too.. haha! You have captured the love in my family... the great love and joy we have for each other and from each other. You have captured them all in your images. You are so gifted! And a special thank you for capturing my son Nathan. Your images display what I see when I look at him. When I asked Nathan “Do you recognize yourself?”, he said “no” and I told him “This handsome young man is you my Nathan! This is exactly what you look like in real life!”. Your pictures are treasures that we will cherish forever. From beginning to end the whole experience was a wonderful one and the results speak for themselves. Thank you so much!

— Jennifer

I am so so so happy to be able to give the family the most beautiful images to cherish and see what their love and happiness is like. Below is some of my favorite images from their portrait experience.

Jen and Sung, thank you so much for letting me be part of your life journey. Being there to document what is already beautiful was my privilege and I am grateful for that. When this image is magnificently installed over your mantle, not only your children but also everyone who visits your lovely home will be reminded of love and joy shines through the portrait. - Kyung

Happy Mother's Day

Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn't know you had, and dealing with fears you didn't know existed.

-Linda Wooten

I realize more and more about how amazing and fearless my mother was raising me as I raise my children myself. She was so strong and wise. She still teaches me how to love more and nurture deeper through her life. As a family portrait photographer, celebrating the greatness of motherhood became the pure focus of my passion.

Without her, I would not be able to understand how profound a mom's love could be. Without her, Yellowhale Photography would not even exist because the heart for motherhood is what grew my own. Happy Mother's Day to my very own mom and to all of you mamas out there.

Happy Mother's Day!

This Sunday is my 11th Mother's day celebration.  I love being a mom to my wonderful two boys. I treasure the opportunity to bring up their characters,  to share and enjoy every bit of our days, and to watch them grow into someone amazing - a lot more amazing than I thought possible. My favorite part of being a mom is to teach myself to stand tall even when I feel down, to endure more even when it is hard,  to be and do my best all the time! The boys have been my ultimate teachers to help me being myself and push the limit. I wanted to share mother's day gift that I received this year. It is our beautiful family picture! The picture was done by my friend Andrea Halsey few weeks ago. (She is an extremely talented photographer and also a mother of two  - she did capture the essence of our family.)  It was the best mother's day gift of all. - it almost brings me into tears whenever I see this photo. 

This weekend, while I celebrate my special day, I want to give all of you moms in the world my warmest hug. Happy Mother's day to you all!
