Film Friday

Film Friday - one of my most favorite outdoor lifestyle sessions! | Ventura Family Photographer

Happy Film Friday!!!

We just got back from our trip, so I am still jet-lagged and working slowly. But before I get on with the 20 things I have on my to-do list, I want to show you some of my most favorite photographs from a recent session. P.S. I'm now available to photograph your family in Ventura! Spread the word!

Having recently been photographed for a family session with my grandmother in Hong Kong and feeling so so grateful to have these memories and interactions preserved, my feeling of wanting to document their families the way that reflects who they really are really intensified. 

Daphne, I hope you'll look back on these photographs years from now and be transported to these precious moments with your gorgeous family.

Love, Po

Film Friday - a lifestyle newborn photography session | Ventura and Santa Barbara Newborn Photography

Today, I'm going to be diligently packing for our big Asia trip but before I start that boring task, I'm sharing some squishy baby photos to brighten our film Friday!  It was so fun to get to photograph this sweet sweet baby boy with his glowing mama for their newborn photography session. Every time I photograph a newborn, it reminds me of my early days with Evie and Max - utter exhaustion but filled with moments where it just feels as if the time slowed down and a tiny human perched on top of me, their belly rising and falling against your chest, and the whole time I wonder how is it that I can love someone I just met so so much.

Such a joy to be able to document these fleeting days for others. Thanks for having me!

Film Friday...the Halloween edition | Ventura Family Photographer

Happy Friday!!! Happy Halloween weekend!

Because I am a super boring person, I never cared for Halloween until the kids were born but boy, I think I am starting to enjoy it. We dressed up as the Peppa Pig family and wore our costumes to Gaver Farm for the second year in a row. I must say, Jeremy helping me make pig snouts at 10pm might be my favorite Halloween memory this year. GO TEAM. If you haven't been, Gaver Farm is awesome!! We went two weekends in a row and had a blast :)

Enjoy the photographs!

Film Friday...the Saturday edition!

I got my scans back from our amazing weekend in Vermont attending a family wedding. It was the BEST trip we could have hoped for to wrap our crazy summer up with an awesomely relaxing time. All I did that weekend was swim, eat, drink, play, canoe, dance, paddle board, and sleep. It was the weekend that our family SO needed to kind of just slow down and enjoy each others' company.  Some photos from the trip!

That's all for now. Have a great weekend!!!

Film Friday | Baby boy on film! | Ventura County Newborn Photographer

I am so excited to share this week's Film Friday with you. Photography has led me to new friends that I otherwise wouldn't have met in my day to day and I'm so glad I got to meet Yasmina a few years ago through a film mama group. She took some beautiful film photographs of Max and I when Max was just 9 days old and I'm so happy that I got to return the favor. I might have squealed when I got my film scans back.

Motherhood, in all the different ways, is so beautiful and tender. I'm so glad I got to document some bits of these early days for Yasmina and her baby boy. 

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Film Friday - A Berry Summer Edition

I am cracking up over my title...can you guess what I'm going to be posting about?!

This summer feels like the best summer yet.  The kids are at such a fun age and it is beginning to be really fun having special outings with them!  If you asked me to name five things that I love about summer, then I would answer: cold brew, strawberries, peaches, watermelon, and pool.  We are slightly too early for peaches but this post contains all the rest.  We are loving our summer so far - strawberry picking, going to petting zoo birthday parties, and the pool.  Enjoy the photos :)

A mix of Fuji400H + 1 and Portra400. All developed by the FIND lab.

Film Friday - annual Cherry Blossoms edition

HOW is it Friday already again????

So...we basically didn't have a spring in DC this year and went from a whole month of rain straight to summer.  I am okay with that but I am going to think about spring a tiny bit this morning by throwing back to our visit to see the cherry blossoms two months ago.  Jeremy and I have gone almost every year since we have been together, with the exception of two years 1) Super pregnant before Evie was born and 2) we were out of the country.  Our walk downtown last year is still so vivid in my mind because I remember being so disappointed with how overcasted it was! It started out kind of exciting since this was the first time our family of 4 visited the cherry blossoms together BUT I'd say we got over it rather quickly because it was so crowded even though we got there shortly after 7am! Note: Max was strapped to the carrier the whole time, so I didn't get photographs of him on camera, but at least we have some iphone family snaps :)

I hope you enjoy these photographs :) Happy Happy Friday and have a good weekend, peeps!

All taken on a Pentax645N and a Canon 1v on portra400.

Film Friday

Somehow we skipped Spring and marched right into Summer.  Not complaining though! I will take sunny and hot days over 20+ days of rain ANY day.  Here's another round up of film photographs from our daily lives. Happy Friday!!!

Oh, don't mind the messy hair, stickers on my husband's shirt, Evie making the same dorky face as I am, and our runaway baby boy. It's a family portrait because we are all in the frame, ok?
