Baby Gabriel Photo Shoot

This is my first semi-newborn photo shoot. Beautiful baby Gabriel was 3-5 weeks in these photos. I wanted to get some shoots while he was sleeping, it was not easy. We tried everything. Finally after rocking, eating, peeing and pooping, he was out. Wasn’t he a little angle? There’s something about a sleeping baby… so peaceful.

I love taking photos of babies hands and feet, because they just grow too fast, got to remember how tiny they once were.

The last photo was from my experiment with a cocoon. However Gabriel wouldn’t stay asleep in there, there’s the only non-squirmy shoot. He almost looked like he was sleeping, he was actually faking it, hehe… pretty good acting skill.

The Schaerer’s Family Portrait

I got to work with this wonderful family last Saturday on their family portrait. They were all so sweet and beautiful, and certainly know how to have fun. They were very easy to photograph. I hope I have captured some shared moments for them to cherish forever.

This is the first time I photograph in the JW Marriot Las Vegas Resort & Spa. And I was actually a little nervous about the photos will look too hotel-sy, but they turned out just fine. Here are a few of favorite ones.

We first did some inside ones.

And then we just went outside and have fun and lots of laughter…

Sylvia and Marcel (they are the parents) look so young, don’t you think they could pass for the big brother and sister?
