Baby Update: Growing and Happy!

She is going to be three months old next week! Where did the time go?? It feels like it was just a few weeks ago that she came into our world! I mean, really? Three months already!? Amazing how time passed by so quickly - she is growing by leaps and bounds. It's such a mixed feeling, while I'm glad that she is growing and a happy baby - I just simply love newborns and wish I can have her being small for a long time!

Regardless, we're enjoying this little bundle of joy soooo much and now that she started smiling a lot and cooing.. it has just been so much fun! :)

Vita + Shannon {Los Angeles Wedding 02.05.2011}

Joe and I flew to Southern California a few weekend ago to attend/photograph Vita and Shannon's wedding in Pasadena (about 10 miles northeast from downtown Los Angeles). As you might remember from the e-session I did for them last year - Vita is my own cousin, so this particular wedding was a special one for me to attend and photograph. Friends and family came from near and far to celebrate the beginning of their new life together.

The day started perfectly with a nice cool temperature (gotta love California weather) and...I saw a pair of sky-high purple shoes. Ohh...we're off to a fun start! ;)

Vita and Shannon decided to do the 'first look'. Vita looked so giddy...loved it - I think it's cute :)

Shannon's family is of Japanese descent. Here is his mom gave an initial reception speech and explained that they shouted "Banzai" three times as a symbol of celebration. Very appropriate! :)
