Crystal's portraits

Crystal was my beloved bride from last year and she's going to graduate from college next month. To celebrate this major event, she asked me to do another photoshoot for her. I agreed to do it in a heartbeat. Check out her smile... it does magic on her. See how her face glow and pop in pictures.

A wardrobe change brings out the stylish side of Crystal.

Our afternoon together in downtown Berkeley was filled with joyful chats about the many behind-the-scene stories of her wedding. We were more like friends hanging out and doing snapshots here and there. No agenda, no sweat. Thanks for the nice time and precious friendship, Crystal. I went home feeling alive.


Official Opening of Humane Society Silicon Valley

The brand new site of Humane Society Silicon Valley is hosting its grand opening event this weekend. As their event photographer, I had the opportunity to document the opening ceremony with delight and with lots of sweat (the valley was at 91 degrees).

Annie the dog is enjoying her moment of tanning at the go-green dog park on site.

Christine Benninger, the President of HSSV, shared her words of appreciation and encouragement to all the attendees.

How long can dogs pay attention to speeches?

Some awesome donors who have helped to make this 25-million project come true. See even the dogs smile!

Generosity. Talent. Time. Love. Smile. Do what you can to give back to the community.

Eunice and more

The best comedy in life is to watch kids at play. It seems effortless for them to be cute, hilarious and a little crazy.

Introducing Eunice, my god daughter. One sweet pea.

Eunice has been dying to be a big sis ever since she knows she's no longer a baby.

Talking about being ready... Eunice simply can't stop hugging and kissing her mom's tummy all day long. Her mom has to literally stop her "stalking" behavior :) What's more, she figures she can command her baby sis not to kick mama too hard.

What a star, inside and out.
