I had such a wonderful time shooting here! It was one of the greatest experience I’ve had yet! Once again, Another special Thanks goes to Ms. Mali for allowing me to capture her in her beautiful prom dress. I am glad we had to reschedule her prom shoot due to the rain, if we shot our original scheduled date, we may not have gotten such wonderful shots done nor would we had such a beautiful location to shoot in.

Meena and Kao had a morning session with me during Spring Break back in March. I know I had been very bad with updating my photos and my paj ntaub, but I hope you all can enjoy these photos for now until I am caught up.

I was able to capture one of my very first new born shoot. Baby Caden was a few days from being a month old, his mother, a sister in law of mine had asked me photography him. I am so in love with this little cutie. He was such an adorable baby.

During Spring break I put together a few shoots and shoot the Bou family. It was a fun family shoot, let’s say it’s my first actual family shoot. The few days before the shoot was nice and warm but come the day of the shoot, the weather turned a terrible toll and became extremely cold. We had a very cold spring this year so we didn’t get a full session done. But overall it was a good experience.

Just for the fun of it, Hlee and I decided to test out some Boudoir photography work. I think Boudoir isn’t “dirty” but its a way of creativity. Something new to try.

Back in March I had purchased the Interfit lights and loved it! So for the first time (in March) I had tested it out. So I thought I would share these photos from the tried out of the lights.

Many of my readers know I love to travel although I tend to travel to the same places. Anyways the last time I have been back to the Fresno Hmong New Year was in December of 2003, 9 years ago. Well this past December I had taken a mini vacation to Fresno to join the Hmong New Year celebration. It was a blast, although i have notice a decrease of people who are attending this event, also, I have also notice a decrease of people who are actually dressed up to the New Year. Either way, it was a fun and great experience for me. I had truly missed attending a huge Hmong New Year festival.
I had dressed up everyday while I was there and I was also able to attend the event everyday for 6 days although I had to miss the last and final day of the Hmong New Year since my flight was schedule early morning on January 1st. Below are a few photos I had taken from the event. I truly am sorry for the late post of the event. Either way, I hope you guys will enjoy it. Also, I will try to post up all the Hmong outfits that I had worn while I attend this festival.

My good friend/cousin Shaw had started a crochet project, Hmong inspired hats for children. This project was started as a fundraiser for a event that she needed to fund for in June.
If anyone wants any of these hats and is serious about it, let me know, I can always place an order for you guys, but only if you guys are serious about it.
Shaw made a few crochet hats for my nice Rye and Rye loves it! These are super cute and comfortable. They can be warn any day for any reason and even to match with a traditional Hmong outfit. Every hat is handmade.

Hey guys! I have received a few emails regarding my whereabouts and if I am okay since I have not blogged since early December of 2012. Yes, I am doing well and is still alive! I have been extremely busy with school and everything else. This semester I have been overwhelmed with school and had not found time to get on my blog. I truly apologize for my lack of blogging! I have been able to push in some mini photo shoots and also took my trip to California in December. I will update you all and blog some photos from my trip. A little late but I do apologize and I am truly grateful to have such wonderful readers who was worried about me!
And also to all the late replies, I haven’t even logged onto my blog since the last time I had blogged therefore I did not realize how much comments had been left and needed approval. I used to receive an email for approval but after my site update the emails stopped coming. But I just wanted you all to know that I am not ignoring you, my readers, but I have been away from my blog for the last few months.
I promise you guys that I will get back on my feet and start my blogging again! It seems like 2013 will be another crazy, fun and eventful year for me. I have a few projects in mind, in fact, I have them all ready to start on, but I will slowly get to them. I have a few more paj ntaub projects that I will want to make, also, I want to attempt making a Hmong pleated skirts, we’ll see how that turns out. I have a few photo sessions that I will need to edit and upload to share.
I have also notice that a few of my readers had been following me on istagram, thanks guys!
