Bethany Retreat

Saw this random "bike" and thought it was the cutest thing. Don't know exactly what to call it b/c it's not really a bike and not really a scooter.

I can't decide if I'm more fascinated by the bokeh on my lens or by the flowers themselves.

Group photo from the Bethany Retreat:

Yes I am aware that I look pregnant, and no I am not pregnant. It's just a really bad angle and some bad shadowing.

See that "tall" guy sticking out at the upper right hand corner? That's Paul, apparently, he's a jupming bean. hahaha
Here's a closeup crop of him jumping. Hilarious!!!

Round 1 & 2 of the Little Lee's

Having fun with the niece and nephew again while the 'rents go out on the town. They are like the never ending energizing bunny - testing my patience as well as my shutter speed. hahaha Finally, in the end, my flash saved the day!!


This is how Richie likes to "play" in my apt b/c of the lack of toys. Being that I obsess over my furniture and keep plastic on my lamp shades, this does not make me happy.

After about an hour of trying to put them to bed, I gave in to their whims and started round 2 of photo-taking. All these shots were taken in complete darkness. cool eh?

Richie wanted to take a "family" photo. hahaha This was my fav out of the 10 we took. Pretty nasty but Johan was licking my TEETH the entire time but I couldn't shove him away in case the camera went off. There must've been something tasty on my teeth. gross!

This is the one that the 4 yr old boy insisted was the better shot b/c we are all looking into the camera, including Johan; despite their deer-in-the-headlights look. hahaha and yes I am wearing pajamas. And yes my hear is a mess from chasing them around the house all night. but I wouldn't trade any of it for the world. :)

Out for a Walk

(FYI, I had to repost these b/c the first set was a bit of a disaster.)

I decided to take my camera out while walking Johan today. It was such a sunny, beautiful day until it started raining. Johan was a great model for me. I photograph him so much, he might start charging me by the hour. hahaha It's great b/c I have him so well trained to listen to me that even though we're outside and I let go of the leash, he doesn't run away from me. Mr and Mrs Lee, if you are reading this...can I have Johan? :D













Bronx Zoo

So on a whim, Maggie and I decided to go to the Bronx Zoo and take photos. It was lots of fun and we will definitely go back to spend an entire day as opposed to just 1.5 hrs.

The polar bear in the above right picture was the cutest thing I've ever seen. He walks out and then just plops his head on to the rock. Here is a closeup crop of what he was doing.

This little guy was just sleeping there when we arrived. so cute!

Then the zoo keeper walked in and woke him up.

After the Bronx Zoo, we had a chance to stop by somewhere in Fort Lee.
Ask Maggie where it is, I have no idea.

Cool random red door on the cabin.
I can totally imagine having an engagement photos session here. hint hint

And lastly, how can I post animals and not throw one in of Johan.
I think I may have been confusing him b/c I keep calling him Mochi instead of Johan.
Remember Mochi? hahaha
