As photographers, it's the most heart breaking thing when photos just stay in hard drives.  Photographs are meant to become art in your home!  One of my favorite thing to do is help our clients design the empty walls of their home and make it come alive! Seeing our clients' expressions when they receive canvases, prints or albums is absolutely priceless! Your photographs are one of a kind, unique art that you should show off!

"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.

Online, it may seem that our business is everything to us.  It may seem that all we do is go to photo shoots everyday and that all we talk about are weddings and photography.  Yes, we of course love it and it's our passion to be in love with photography and our clients; however, there's something else that we love more and that's each other.  Without our marriage, none of what we do would even matter and it wouldn't exist.

Why We Started Working Out

Why We Started Working Out

We came to a point where we had to make a decision.  A decision for our health... We got tired of making excuses for ourselves.  Saying things like "I just don't have the time....", "I'm too tired to workout.", "I wish I had the leisure and the money to do that.", "I have three children... are you kidding?"  

Well, one thing I've learned over the years and especially in the years of running our business is that everyone has money and time for what's important to them.  You will always find the time and the money for what you want the most.

"Mommy!  I don't have socks!"

"Mommy!  Do you know where my violin is?"

"Mommy!  Sorry, but I spilled water on the floor.... again."

"Mommy!  Ethan is so annoying!  He keeps messing up my legos!!!!"

"Elli scratched me again!"

I write this blog in hopes that all moms out there can relate to the sounds of the words above.  In hopes that my family is "normal" and that everything is going to be ok.  :)
