Making Memories

Hey there~ How is your summer treating you? It feels like the time is flying away (million times faster in Summer) and we are moving into August in few days.

Guess what~ I just received the family photos taken by our amazing photographer, Hendry, who incredibly captured our final day in Seoul, Korea. (THANK YOU Hendry~ this is exactly what I wanted!) Just few weeks ago, we had the best time making memories there. If you are like me, you would take tons of photos of what you see, eat, and do during the family vacation. I always think that the scenes and experiences would last forever or at least for a while if I record everything then and there.. Because I take pictures and record videos to enjoy later, my precious moments should not fade, right?

In real life though, after returning home totally relaxed and refreshed, the unforgettable memories we just made start to melt away immediately. By the time we unpacked eight suitcases filled with the souvenir and laundries, almost all fresh feelings and amazing memories are all forgotten. At least it does to me. There are so much at work to catch up, so much housework to do, and so much sleep to recover! The boys have their camps to go and we have business trips to leave waiting for us. All of these busy-ness around our lives force us to forget the special moments we thought we could cherish forever sooner than anticipated.

This year was no different. Especially there was a 14 hour time difference ( jet lag ), I forgot almost everything already! So sad~ I bet I would have lost all my memories if I did not record it to my instagram. The other day, all my boys were gone to their trips and camps, I was sitting in the kitchen table looking at my instagram pictures (because I miss my boys dearly) and got the email with this picture of us. It brought me tears instantly. THIS!!! is nothing compare to my instagram feed which I posted realtime to record every single moment of our vacation to remember! This picture of us running on the old street in Seoul brought the emotion and feeling I felt at the moment back to real life right away!!! It is absolutely amazing how a picture can open the door to connect the moments like this.

I appreciate it so much. I just kept staring at the picture of us for a long time and cried. The memories were alive again because of this amazing reminder.

Maybe it is because “I” was in the photo? Maybe it is because the photographer captured us in a great timing? Maybe it is because everyone was holing hands and smiling? Maybe it is all of the right reasons….

It was p.e.r.f.e.c.t~~~

This image will be printed and displayed in my family room soon to remind us of our togetherness everyday. I am convinced (AGAIN) to photograph my clients the same way every time. Just can not wait to let you all feel how amazing it will be~~

xoxo,
Kyung

A morning in D.C.

Behind the scenes video of a family portrait session at National Mall at sun rise. Produced by Mei Yuzuki @Yellowhale Photography

Hello hello~~ 

A few weeks ago, I had a wonderful sunrise family portrait session at the National Mall. I have been photographing this family for eight years and have been witnessing how the love and happiness truly grew within the family.

This was "a Morning in D.C." session, one of our Lifestyle portrait sessions. How special it is to photograph one of my favorite clients in the beautiful city I love! Although I live 15 minutes away from D.C., I never got to discover how meaningful it is to be living in our nation’s capital. Thousands upon thousands of people visit each day and so many events and celebrations happen at the heart of the national mall every month. In fact, there were three marathons happening while we were there. The event tents were everywhere when I arrived before the dawn at the reflection pool. I could tell there was an amazing concert the night before.

The sky was pink; the sun was rising behind the beautiful Washington monument. Everything around us was calm and peaceful. I had hoped to see the glorious big yellow Sun to rise, but it was even more beautiful when the blanket of fog and cloud hid it. As we watched the city waking up to this calm morning, it felt so perfect to be there. The red dress, the stone columns, the foggy sky, the baby ducks... it was beautiful.

It meant so much to celebrate this togetherness at our home city. Even though we had to wake up at 5 A.M. to avoid the crowds of tourists, it was so worth it. 

Below are the images from the session.

October is here. The studio is really busy already but we got two Lifestyle Sessions just added to the schedule in October.

Please call 202.870.6773 to book your "a Morning in D.C." session or our fabulous holiday portrait experience today.
