Tony Yang x Skyla Arts x Xixi Yang

It's Tony Yang and Xixi Yang again! :) Don't be confused, they are not related~! ^^ You can view Xixi's before and after here to refresh your memory. The size for the vertical images are slightly smaller than my normal web size so I had to resize it a bit for the visuals of my blog...so again apologies for the fuzziness!! For the rest of my "favs" from the set, check them out in my Makeup for Photoshoots gallery! :) Enjoy!

Pet Photography

I've never had a pet until June of 2009, and my friends are probably tired of me sending them photos of Skyla, the naughty kitten. So I've been practicing my pet photography skill on this bad girl! It requires timing, patience, and fast shutters! I took the one above just 20 minutes ago~! That photo requires no post-processing. I was playing fetch with her - the stuffy, Leeloo, is the only thing Skyla would fetch these days, because it suits her mouth shape perfectly and it's fun to bounce around! I just thought she looked too cute hugging Leeloo possessively! Below is Skyla posing with a souvenir we bought in Korea - a hanbok for animals! I tried using some flash since it was night time, although it's hard to get one with the eyes open since the flash makes her blink and wink her eyes! I used a bit of photo shop (for the first time...) on Skyla, to bring her out from the messy background! You gotta forgive my mess! We are moving!! :) I think Skyla is such a great model! Now, would anyone please just hire me to photograph their pet??

Jeah & Jay's Engagement Photoshoot

You might remember Jeah from here and here. She is the bride whom I was working on for her engagement photo shoot during the fire! But as the photographers from dK Weddings mentioned during the wedding, you couldn't tell that Jeah and I were running for our lives just an hour before the shoot took place! The images posted here are a courtesy from dK Weddings! I know this wasn't their intention, but they showcased my work on pretty Jeah very well! :) Jay and Jeah also do a lot of photography, so I bet they were very selective of their photographer - and the results came out great! Enjoy the images, and you can see a few more at theMakeup for Photoshoots gallery! :) Enjoy!

Behind the Scenes video

I've been occupied with apartment hunting, but here is a quick update. I appear very briefly (lol) in Xixi Yang's behind the scenes video. I'm not doing anything exciting, just straightening her hair - this was after the makeup was done. Here is the post for her before and after! I'll post the photos once I receive them from the photographer, Tony Yang.

I am very excited about our new apartment! I'll have a better studio space and everything! Yay! I hope everybody had a good weekend and a great week ahead! :)

Relocation Announcement

My husband and I are relocating to Northern California in December; therefore, starting December 2009, I’ll be serving the area from San Francisco to San Jose. I should have written an announcement as soon as I found out, but I was still taking last minute weddings and non-wedding clients and decided to wait until I know for sure the exact date of moving.

We are really excited for our move, the move that I’ve been waiting for! I have always wanted to live up there – and now it is finally coming true! It is a little intimidating to start fresh, but I’ll work really hard and hopefully I’ll be getting clients! :) *fingers crossed!*

I will be a little sad to be away from my sister and my NEW nephew, Jacob! He is Chinese & Jewish, and absolutely adorable! Very advanced too, from his fine motor skills – Day 1 and he was grabbing onto his pacifiers and his ears! (although I can’t imagine why I would hold on to my ears but…) very adorable indeed!
