Vienna... My New Favorite City

Vienna... My New Favorite City

If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, I think by now you know that Craig and I returned from our anniversary trip to Austria!  I'm still processing everything that we experienced there together.  It's still surreal to me that I was in Europe.

2018 Birthday // I did NOTHING!

“I know you’re busy, but….”

“Wow, your business seems to be doing well.  You guys are staying busy, huh?" 

“Being busy is a good problem to have!”

‘BUSY’ is the word that I’m still trying to figure out the definition of.  What does that really mean?  I feel that whether we want to admit it or not, we feel valued when we are busy. 

Emma's 10th Birthday // The Reason for it All

It's so interesting to see what's important to someone.  I truly believe that everyone has time and money for what's valuable to them.  I don't believe the words, "I can't afford it" or "It's out of my budget.".  I translate those words into "It's not important to me."  I have seen the lowest income people travel world, and I have seen the most wealthy struggle with basic needs.  It's all about where you put value in your life.

Obrist Family / Portraits In The City & a Surprise Lamborghini

Over the years, we have began many traditions, but taking family portraits is by far my fav.  A "side tradition" that comes from that is me crying from looking at them.  :)  I just can't help it... I look at these photos, and my heart is filled with so many emotions.  I mean, I just don't know whether to just sob and cry my eyeballs out or laugh because I'm so happy, so I just do both.

Time to Give Back // Supreme Task International - Smash Hunger

"One day, if I ever make this much money, then I will give it to such and such...." was a thought we used to have.  But, we realized that giving doesn't happen under certain circumstances, it happens when you decide to.  With money, no matter where you're at, it's never enough because contentment comes from a sense of gratitude... in fact, they say, "More money, more problems", and that is so true.

How We Grew a Multicultural Clientele

I was born in South Korea and grew up there until I was eight years old.  Even as a child, I was fascinated with foreigners.  It was rare that I saw an American person, but when I did, I thought it was the coolest thing.  Through my dad (step-dad who was the only father I ever knew and called, "Dad") who was stationed in South Korea, I got to see so many Americans at the military base.

What to Wear // For Family Portraits

When kids begin school again and you notice the word, “pumpkin”, on the Starbucks menu, we know that fall is coming… Fall changes the pace of our daily lives a little, doesn’t it? The fresh, cooler air makes us stop and just breathe it in…

Blog About Why We Blog // How it has Benefitted Our Business

"I read your blog!"  

The first time I heard those words, I thought, "REALLY??  You really read it?  So, you're saying that you took time out of your day to actually read what we had to say?" Although we started because we wanted people to read it of course, we began blogging without ANY expectations.  We did it with the sole desire to share our photos and the knowledge/experience we have gained over the years as professional wedding photographers.  We thought that if it helps just one person, it would be worth it.  But, the more we blogged, the more we realized that it was doing a lot more than just that.

#COKids Themed Portraits / Unique Memories For a Lifetime

As parents, don’t you want to freeze time sometimes?  Don’t you ever look at your child and wonder, “Wow…. I wish she could stay like this forever.” or “I really love the stage that he’s in right now.”  As parents ourselves, we too have felt that way many times and still do…. and you know as well as I that kids grow up fast and you want to do whatever you can to remember every stage and what they liked or were into during that time.
