The Precious Moment

Ethan, the baby of Jessie and me, arrived a bit earlier than his expected due day. When our clients worried about our baby might come on their wedding days, Ethan came in between photo shoots. Good boy!

Jessie's labour was very smooth. We arrived at the hospital around 6:30 in the morning, and Ethan was born at 10:20. Even though Jessie screamed during her contractions and kept yelling for epidural while she was being assessed, she was totally fine after having epidural. I was very amazed that Jessie was so tough. She worked very hard in pushing, and it took her only 40 something minutes to push the baby out. Good job Jessie! I love you!

I couldn't believe that I could be so calm to take photos at the moment when I first saw my baby. It was hard to explain my feeling at that time. I thought that the moment for the baby's birth would be very important and I must capture these shots... just like hearing "You may kiss the bride" at work. Press press press...

Terry & Jeff Engagement Session @ Vancouver Olympic Village

Rain Rain Rain... Raincouver gave us a lot of headache. However, we had a dry afternoon to shoot photos with Terry & Jeff at the Vancouver Olympic Village. Right after Brian and I left the Roundhouse at Yale Town, rain came again.

Getting Closer

The day is closer and closer. Our baby will be here in a few weeks. I needed to take another photo for Jessie during her third trimester. I thought of many complicated lighting. However, simplicity won. This photo was taken at a corner of our living room. The setup was very simple. Fast and easy.

Vancouver Raincouver is still raining almost non-stop in April. The rare sunny days were the days between our photo shoots. I hope weather will be better later. Right after I took the above photo, flowers fell and dark leaves came out.
