LOVE & TOGETHERNESS portrait special

kyung jung

Happy Valentine’s day my friends~

This time of the year, I have a marathon of celebrations in my family. Both my boys have their birthdays, my wedding anniversary, plus my favorite St. Valentine’s Day all fall into the first half of February. Can you imagine how crazy is to handle all four celebrations in two weeks? Back to back birthday parties and gifts, cakes and goodies… all are fun, but exhausting at the same time! I am so relieved at least half of those are done by now!

What are the things do you do to celebrate Valentine’s day with your loved ones?

Sending messages of love and affection to friends and family? Gifting a meaningful symbol of love, like a beautiful bouquet of roses? Going out for a fancy lunch or dinner? A nice box of chocolates and delicious bag of black tea are my favorites to give and receive. Hand written notes with blueberry pancakes are the old time classic from my boys…

Whatever you do, what you want the most must be to be together and celebrate LOVE with them!!

This Valentine’s Day season, I am thrilled to introduce you a very special portrait experience at Yellowhale Portrait studio to do just that. If you are following my work for a while, you must know my style already. I am drawn to the images that are genuine and uncluttered. It was never about fancy props or busy backgrounds. It is always about the person in front of my camera. While I tried to create the most beautiful portraits that embrace the essence of the person and capture his/her genuine feelings, LOVE & Togetherness sessions were born. Uncluttered background and minimalistic (and flattering) lighting eliminate all the distractions. Every time you look at the images, you will be presented with the true emotion that connects you to the moment you shared. These portraits will bring the most honest beauty, character, and expression of the person you love. Many said that the images beams out who he/she is exactly and that was the moment that they want to remember forever. Because it is done at the studio, no cold weather or snow day matters! Not to mention the portrait special we are running now through 3/30!

If your little one had a recent birthday like mine, or if your 10th wedding anniversary is around the corner, or just because… LOVE & Togetherness session will be a perfect way to celebrate!!!

10th ANNIVERSARY PORTRAIT SPECIAL

kyung jung

This MAY marks our 10th year Anniversary in DC area. We've started Yellowhale Photography in 2004 in Boston and moved down to Potomac, MD in 2008. (Yes, 10 years ago!!! Time flies...)

Since I opened our Maryland door in May 2008, we've served hundreds of families around Washington DC area and beyond - capturing their life-changing events, welcoming new babies, traveling with you, making memories, sharing laughter and tears... 

Below family was my first DC client, Mandy and Paul. I still remember this day vividly (it was drizzling, but we did not care...^^). I just moved to the area (from Boston) and Mandy shared her beautiful family with me like a snap. Thank you Mandy for trusting Yellowhale! These little cuties are now in Highschools and that baby is in middle school. 

Every single family I photographed, I remember not only their faces, but also the locations, and the reasons why they chose Yellowhale. These beautiful families are the reasons why I do what I do. Many of them are returning for annual family portraits. There are tons more families who came to our studio. I would not be the photographer I am today without your support. I am forever grateful and honored to be your family photographer.

Introducing Celebrity Portrait Experience!

kyung jung

The warm and fresh feel of the new season finally has arrived. I can not wait for the cherry blossoms to bloom and to watch the explosion of color that Spring brings. In this beautiful season, I want to invite you to experience something exciting and unique at Yellowhale.  

Introducing our new "Celebrity Portrait Experience"

The Celebrity Portrait promises to be the most fun your child will ever experience while having their pictures taken. Unlike typical family portraits that document the physical growth and changes progressed over time, this unique portrait experience celebrates your child's talent, passion, or their ultimate dream. Whether its dancing, playing an instrument, playing soccer, being a princess, playing with their favorite dolls or toys, or riding a skateboard.  Whatever consumes your child, the Celebrity Portrait Experience will celebrate it.

As a child grows, their favorite activity changes dramatically. At the age of four, your daughter is all about being Cinderella, but by age nine is obsessed with soccer and EMOJI. As a parent, you want to remember what made them so excited and how talented they were. We want to help document your child's precious dream and passion in the most beautiful and artistic way with some fashion and editorial kick! Of course, your child deserves some spotlight and confetti!

The Celebrity Portrait Experience is 100% custom designed; from choosing the best activities to selecting their outfits, props and backgrounds. Your child is truly the STAR of the day. The end result is artwork that is as unique as your ever loving child.

You will LOVE flipping through the special edition magazine with their picture on the cover! Because we know you are their biggest fan!!!  

Take a look at our newest galleries of Celebrity Experiences, watch the behind the scene video, and read what people have to say!

Here are what clients had to say about the Celebrity Portrait Experience at YELLOWHALE:

A Dream Come True...

Working with Kyung was truly a dream come true as a mother and as a business woman. She was extremely professional and absolutely wonderful when working with the girls. The Celebrity Experience was like no other photography experience that we have ever had. Kyung listened to Ellie and Marin and took to heart that interests and true personalities. She then created an experience and in turn photos that completely captured the essence of who they are, now, at nine years old. These photographs aren’t like any others. As an added bonus, I also don’t need to write on the back to catalog the photos for future years.. it is obviously, these photos are of the girls at nine! They are the girls. We all feel so grateful to have been able to work with Kyung.

We will always cherish these photos and the overall experience.

- Rachel (Bethesda, MD)

Session Itself Is A Memory!!!

Let me start by saying I have a Type-A personality and I did my homework before reaching out to Kyung @ Yellowhale! I absolutely loved the images I saw on her website, but I was hooked when I called and spoke to her over the phone. Kyung's attention to detail and professionalism are like no other, but what was so refreshing to me was her personality and friendly disposition. She took the time to hear my vision for my daughter's "Celebrity Experience" and left no stone unturned. My daughter and I were in awe when we arrived at the shoot......confetti, sparkles, fans, lights, balloons!!! Every little girls (and moms) dream to have all of this ready for THEM! Kyung made us feel at home for those few hours and my daughter had the time of her life (and still asks when do I get to do it again?!) This is a memory that I will hold dear to my heart forever. I couldn't help but get emotional at the "selection meeting." The images she was able to capture far EXCEEDED my expectations. Everything about Kyung and Yellowhale are well worth the time and investment. My family and I will definitely be back again! 

- Mandy (Oakton, VA)

What an Adventure...

From the prep we went through; finding fun outfits and accessories that expressed her creativity, to deciding which side of her we wanted to showcase and remember for all time. The actual day itself was put together in the most fun way ever.  Ruby loved dancing and singing and posing and basically just having fun being herself, all while you captured these amazing images.  I don't think Ruby noticed the camera, you slipped into the background all the while being ever present. 

I said amazing images and I do not use this word lightly; you captured the inner glow we see every day in our daughter and you made it radiate from every picture. Truly an art.

We hope many more girls, old and young get the opportunity we had in this session with you.  I know for sure we will be back again!

-Emma & Steve ( Bethesda, MD)


Here are few behind the scenes videos you can watch. 

Emilia's session was about Easter bunny, flying sky with balloons, ballet, playing with her dolls.

Ellie and Marin were celebrating their 9th birthday with confetty, balloons, glitters, flower girl dresses.

No Yellowhale Celebrity session is alike. Our Celebrity Experience provides you with 25 beautiful swoon-worthy images to relish. At your selection meeting (about two weeks from the session date), you can select from our finished, ready-to-hang gallery quality metal print posters, wall gallery collection, and commercial grade editorial magazine that highlights your child's talent and beauty.  

Does your child have a talent? Is she excited about Ballet? Are your twins turning nine this year? Or is he playing with legos all day long? With the Celebrity Experience, we can create the perfect portraits that are as brilliant and unique as they are!  They are growing up so quickly - THIS is your opportunity to give them a chance to shine forever.
