Is today really the last day of July???
This summer is flying by~

Very excited to shoot a newborn/family session tomorrow... these two sisters are no strangers to my camera (you might recognize little Elyse from her 1st birthday party post) and guess what? They just welcomed another little girl into their family - THREE sisters, how precious is that! Why do I get the feeling that this will be me in a couple of years?

Here's a shot of each of these big sisters, taken at Katie's First Birthday party (a full post of Katie's beautiful party is on its way this week too). 
These two are seriously beautiful ... can't wait to meet the newest Han sister~

Leighton's One Year Old Session | For Tim Park Photography

Some shots taken while assisting at a recent portrait session for Tim Park Photography.

Leighton is half Japanese, a quarter Korean and a quarter Chinese - love it! Reminds me of how our girls (half Japanese, half Korean) will also grow up with a rich mix of cultures. 
I think my favorite part of his outfit was his little cap - so adorable~

Thanks again to Tim Park for letting me shoot during his session~

Nighttime Routines

If you have kids, what's your nighttime routine like?
I don't usually have time to leisurely pick up my camera and take pictures while getting the kids to bed (does anybody??) - but I knew if I didn't, I probably never would. 

So here's a glimpse of an evening in the Pak house ...

Right now, Naomi likes to wear sunglasses in the tub...oh to be four again.
Fun in the Tub
Then some impromptu hide and seek between the girls...

Sisters playing

Then getting some milk from Daddy and giving him a thank you kiss...

...and finally gathering her favorite blankie and bottle
Ready for bed!

By this time, Mommy was ready for bed too :)
Hope everyone's having a great Monday~

Twenty Two

Today Noelle is 22 months old...

Pretty much after she hits two, I should probably stop counting her age in months.
Or I'll just be one of those moms who are in denial that their child is no longer a baby - they'll say, "oh yeah, she's 32.2 months" and watch people get confused as they try to do the math. 

Some words to describe little N at this moment in time....
She has 'second child' written all over her.
Here's a shot of her at almost 3 months.
Looking all gentle and mild....
almost 3 months

and now at 22 months...
...the real Noelle appears.

22 months

Noelle-y, this expression is SO YOU at this moment...
I hope you look back on this photo when you're a bit older
and laugh at how much attitude you had!

Celeste's One Year Old Session | For Tim Park Photography

Some images from Celeste's One Year Session taken while assisting for Tim Park Photography
Celeste was such a sweetie, and I loved the fact that her mommy and daddy brought along their dog, little Sophie, to the session. 
Thanks to Tim Park for letting me snap away during his shoot!

Scoot Scoot

Life is busy!
Time for just one shot today...
Naomi zipping away on her new scooter (from grandma, again).
Of course, she still insisted on wearing a dress . She has literally worn this dress three days in a row - her new fave outfit...

Red, White and Blue

My mom came in from out of town for a week and of course, brought some gifts for the of the gifts was a pair of matching Fourth of July dresses. Since matching outfits are a rarity in our house, I knew it was time for a sister photo shoot!

We went to downtown Fullerton, handed them a couple of $1 toy lollipops from Target and walked around. I totally forgot about the fountain though, and once Noelle spotted it, the shoot took a turn for We ended the evening with two tired and damp girls!
Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July weekend!

Happy Fourth

Emily's 1 Year Old Session | For Tim Park Photography

The month of June has flown by - can't believe it's already July!

Summer News:
Excited to share that I've been given the awesome privilege of interning for a photographer whom I greatly respect - Tim Park from Tim Park Photography

I blogged briefly about one of Tim's workshops I'd attended this past year and since then, he has been a huge influence in my photography journey. Everyone who's met him knows that not only is Tim a talented photographer but an immensely gifted teacher as well. 

To see some of his latest work, become a Tim Park Photography fan on Facebook.

I'll be periodically posting some shots I've taken while assisting Tim during his portrait sessions. 
Here are several from a 1 year old session with baby Emily - what a sweetheart ~
