Here we are at thirty weeks into the pregnancy & chugging along. Pictures taken by yours truly, QLP, because why not!? And since the Oregon sun rises at 5:30am, we pried ourselves from our nice, warm bed at 4:00am to make it to the Gorge- just in time to witness the magic. And how breathtaking it was indeed!

Thank you, love, for setting up the tripod and running into the pose within our 10 second window. We really do need to find our camera remotes!

Thank you, lovely Jackson’s, for waking up super early and letting us photograph your adorable family. Jake was such a trooper with handling this Vegas summer heat and hiking in sandals! We loved seeing how much joy you give each other and are grateful to be able to capture this moment with you. Cheers to many more years of happiness together!

I have been photographing this little family for the past 3 years (2013 & 2014) and I love seeing them grow; grow up and more in love. The Kuo’s came to Vegas this year and we all got to play in the desert. Apart from running out of snacks to bribe the kids with, sand-eating-incidents, and dramatic tantrum flops, we managed to sneak in a few good ones.

QuoteLife_Italy_Venice_29

I drew the most joy from Venice during my early morning runs. Passing by rows of sleeping gondolas while hearing the San Marco Campanile chime made me feel like I had the whole city to myself. This place starts its daily hustle fairly early bringing in boat loads of visitors from every corner. While Venice is clearly a huge tourist trap, it is definitely one worth experiencing.

Thank you for reliving all 4 parts of this adventure with Kinjal and me! I did make a conscious effort on this trip to disassociate myself from the camera and truly enjoy the moment.  I also gave myself no guilt in my carb cravings or gelato binges. It was hard to let go of old habits at first- but then it became so freeing. L’amore tutto intorno!
