Han Family Session

Hope everyone is spending some quality time with the ones they love today~ 

Here are a few from a recent session with the wonderful Han family.
I especially love the first picture below... maybe because it reminds me of my own daughters who are close to this age...or the special bond between a father and daughter. OK, I'll stop before I start getting teary-eyed! I loved hanging out with this family, lots of love and affection between them all - capturing it never gets old~

Sung Family Session - Full Post

A precious family of four~
I had the privilege of shooting Ryan's first birthday party a while ago,
and loved capturing the energy and spunk of these two little ones.
It was so fun to see them again and to freeze this moment in time for them! 
Here are a few from their session - enjoy!

Time with Her

A recent mommy daughter date with my oldest~
When I asked her where she wanted to go, she said, "The park!".
She picked out her favorite dress (that she had worn three days in a row at one point), tucked her pet lion in a basket, and off we went.

I was touched that out of all the things she could've chosen to do with me, she wanted to play at the park...I forget that she is still only five.

We went out to dinner after the park...her dinner request?
Best date ever.

Have a wonderful Monday everyone~

Huijser Newborn/ Family Session

I love this family.
Did you know that they were the first family session I ever did? It was in 2010 when it was just the four of them and I was shooting with a Canon Rebel and my newly acquired 50 mm 1.4 lens... good memories~

When Ruth told me she was pregnant with their third, I think everyone was excited to find out what they were having. They have two little girls and waited until their due date to discover if it was a boy or girl. Personally, the anticipation was killing me! I was overjoyed to hear that they had a precious little boy, Anthony.

And although having three small children under the age of four must be the most difficult job in the world, Ruth is a woman of grace, laughter and faith and takes all things into stride. She is a true inspiration to me, especially as their family is actually here in the States on extended furlough and they are in preparation to go back to China as missionaries from our church. Doesn't she have the most beautiful smile~?


Thank you Ruth and Hugo for being precious friends in Christ - we love you!

And of course, a photo shoot with three youngsters would not be complete without an outtake~ somehow, the crying pictures are always some of my favorites!


Although I am no longer taking on sessions in California and for the summer, if you are a Seattle family that is expecting a child or simply want to get family portraits done, book your session at GH Kim Photography starting in September and specify you'd like Sako to take your portraits - I'd love to see you! 

For newborn sessions, it's good to reserve a session within 12 days of birth because they tend to develop baby acne and are more wriggly after that timeframe (harder to photograph). Since babies arrive on their own whim, the session date is always flexible of course! With Baby Anthony, we had to push his session back one week because of a bout with jaundice, but thankfully he recovered and was a trooper during his session!

Thanks for stopping by, lots more beautiful families to come on the blog~
