Merry Christmas...

...or maybe not so Merry when you're a 2 month old baby and your mom is forcing you to wear a hot, itchy wool hat.
If you were not one of the lucky ones to have received a Christmas card from me...(it was probably b/c I did not have your address) here it is!! Zoe, our funny looking yellow lab, was supposed to be in the picture, but she would not cooperate. I was trying to get creative and wanted a photo of just Hunter and Zoe, but Zoe was a snob about it and didn't want to be near Hunter. So then we went to plan B and just decided to do a family portrait style card. Well, Zoe got so excited that we actually let her on the bed for the first time, that she thought it was playtime and would not sit still!! Finally, we had to just kick her out. Poor dog! It's bad enough that Hunter would not sit still, I couldn't afford to have two things blurred out in the photo. :)
Originally Hunter was supposed to be wearing this hat.
But then, he decided he didn't like it, and Dave spent the next half hour trying to calm him down. So I thought, I'll just keep clicking away...
horizontal1 such I'm still clicking...
IMG_1229 I thought, hmm, maybe Zoe would like to wear the hat. hahaha Who do you think wore it best?
The end of a long day of modeling. I just love this shot of her. She looks so sophisticated.

Hunter In Vegas

So when Hunter was about 3 weeks old, we took him on a road trip to Vegas. His first trip out into the real world involved a one night's stay at Caesar's Palace with the sound of slot machines ringing all around. The hotel was beautiful!! I should add that the only reason why we went to Vegas was for the Marine Corps Ball.

This first round of shots involved a lot of running back and forth b/c Hunter kept falling sideways.

Hunter - Part II

So just as I had given up on trying to get more photos taken of Hunter while he was still under a month old, I took advantage of another open opportunity. Hunter has jaundice so I've been trying to put him in the sun as much as I can. That means I have to strip him down to his diapers, blast the space heater, and pray that he doesn't wake up crying. So after his little sun bathing session, I decided to seize the moment and take some more photos "au naturale". He was such a good sport and slept through the whole thing!!! I love my baby!!!

ok so we did start the session off with him awake.

Meet Hunter!

I can't believe the day has finally come for me to post pictures of my newborn son, Hunter. He is now 2 weeks old, and I just can't stop staring at him. Between all the feedings and sleepless nights, I managed to squeeze in a photo shoot with him. It didn't last as long as I wanted b/c he started to lose his patience with me. Luckily, I had plenty of shots before all hell broke loose. :D

My new bundle of joy

Say hello to my first newborn son, Hunter Kim. He is now 10 days old and has completely taken over my life. I can't stop staring at him!!! I never thought I could love someone so much. Let the photo-taking begin!! Here's an early snippet of two test shots I took. More to come...VERY soon!!!

Richie Portraits

Meet Richard Jr, my nephew. He's a total ham, but I still had to bribe him to take these photos. I can't remember what I bribed him with probably involved playing video games with him. hahaha These are the last of the portraits I took while I was in NJ visiting my family. Oh I miss these guys so much!!!

So as I wait impatiently for the arrival of our baby boy, I've decided to distract myself by doing some DIY projects for the Nursery. One of which involved a dresser.

An $8 dresser bought on craigslist to be exact. Before:

After a new paint job and new handles. I think this was well worth the money.
Don't you think?

More photos of the nursery to come...when I'm done. Hopefully I won't go into labor before I'm done.

Sibling Love

Slowly but surely, I am going through the photos I took while in NJ of my niece & nephew. This was an unplanned photo moment. I just wanted to take advantage of their cuteness at the side of the church parking lot. Luckily I had my camera with me and decided to take this shot. Besides, there will come a day when they are older and will not want to be seen with each other, so it's nice to capture these good times when they come.

Chloe Portraits

This little cutie is my niece. During my trip home to NJ, I was able to grab a few snapshots of her. Lucky for me, this "Princess", as she likes to be called, loves the camera and playing dressup. I think the camera loves her too!!

Our Baby

I'm at 35 weeks now and thought, hmmm, 'think it's about time to take those maternity photos I've been wanting to do.' Dave wouldn't let me hire someone else, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. Between me and Dave switching back and forth from behind the camera, I had so much fun with these, that I might just have to do some more. But don't tell Dave...hahaha. He won't be as excited as I am.
