My lovely girlfriend Gabi is 7 months preggers and we finally found time to get a shoot in! Her husband William literally had an hour to shoot before he had to jet off to a gig in LA, so we got things rolling super fast. Thankfully, they are so natural together, and the chemistry was instantaneous with us. We banged out the shoot in record time and I could not be happier with the results.

Although my family did a Thanksgiving lunch with Korean BBQ and shrimp BBQ on Thursday, my cousin Tien and I wanted to do our own Thanksgiving this year for the kids in the family the night before. On Wednesday, we set out to cook this 15 lb turkey, make mash potatoes with our own gravy from the turkey jus, yams with marshmallows  brussel sprouts with bacon, and our own turkey stuffing with fresh bread. I think we did a pretty good job, and I’m sad I didn’t get a picture of Tien and her turkey. She spent a lot of time prepping the night before cleaning the bird out, stuffing it with yummy fruits and flavors, and cutting the vegetables. When I came home from work, I made the mash potatoes, the brussel spouts, and finished decorating the table. Here are the results!

After the shoot, we went to sushi for dinner because I was craving it like no other.  I didn’t plan on taking any more photos, but this moment is just too cute.  We had our own booth so Ava wasn’t being distracted by everything else in the restaurant. She was more focused on her food, and particularly on how we were all using our chopsticks.  Ava is no stranger to chopsticks. Mom and Dad both use chopsticks like a pro for many of their meals and she gets to try everything they eat [best way to get a child to taste everything].  She hasn’t quite figured out how to use them yet, but daddy is helping her. She watches him intently, tastes the food with the pro food critic face, and then tries to use the chopsticks herself.





yummy daddy! more please!


oh ok…TWO hands

man, this is hard

this doesn’t feel right…

 ahhhh well, play time!



Ava just turned 2!!! She is super energetic and full of life, but starting the terrible twos tantrums. We decided to channel all her energy to all the fun things the Anti-Mall had to offer. I didn’t know the alley had this awesome hopscotch drawn on the pavement, but as soon as Ava saw it, she just took off running. I hopscotched with her [me running, her following], and it nearly knocked me out after the 20th time, but it was so worth the exercise. I got some great pics with the sun peeking through as it sets.
