First Family photos!

Posted by pwp on September 23, 2011

After postponing the shoot for a couple of weeks due to bad weather, it finally happened on a warm nice Sunday evening. My good friends, Bobby & Vilay, are expecting in a few months and we took some joyful photographs of this exciting and beautiful time. This is just an indescribable  feeling to be part of documenting the birth of a family and witness the love between the parents-to-be  and their child as well as each other.

Let just have these favorite photographs show you what I mean…

Surrounded by green hearts…

Just beautiful moments…

And a beautiful Mom-to-be!

This is my favorite! I just can’t stop smiling…

I really like this moment too…

Glowing in the sunlight

At the gate of family Happiness… Congratulations you two!!!

Pie ‘n Poetry by Miette

Posted by pwp on September 9, 2011

On the week of Bookfest in Ann Arbor, what better idea than to create a special event combining two art forms, food (pie) and poetry. This lovely idea naturally came from Miette, which you can find every Wednesday at the Evening Farmers’ Market. All treats from Miette are made from fresh local Michigan ingredients and low sugar. These includes pastries such as brioche au chocolat, fruit tarts and jams, among other delicious and authentic items. If you have not tried them yet, you know what do every Wednesday evening from now on…

This week Elizabeth (Lizzie) joined Miette to offer an enchanting experience to the few lucky and brave customers who showed up despite the cool and rainy evening: each slice of pie came with a personalized poem typed by Lizzie on the spot on a 1936 Remington typewriter! What a delight!

Here are some of my favorite moments:

Bravo Michelle for the incredible work you did on this awesome awesome banner!!! Stunning!

And a big Thank you to you, Aaron, for all your help on these magnificent pies!Here is Nick exchanging ideas with Lizzie before she start typing his poem…

And Lizzie promptly types away her poem on this gorgeous typewriter….

Maestro Lizzie!

The joy of composing a poem and sharing it on the spot…

And to complete this series, here is the timeless beauty and star of the evening! Wow!

It’s never too late!

Posted by pwp on September 2, 2011

In typical asian weddings, the bride gets to wear a number of dresses throughout the day. This is really wonderful for everyone to see but it does add more stress and work for the bride at least to be changing so many times during the day. It also means that some dresses unfortunately are worn for just a short time. My good friend Jovy who got married following the Filipino tradition had this one dress made of pineapple fibers (!) which is absolutely stunning but she only got to wear it for a moment on her wedding day. So she decided to wear it again on a beautiful summer evening and take a few photos of this occasion. And I am so glad she did! You really looked like a princess from a fairy tale!…

Here are some of my favorites moments of that evening.




Your pineapple fiber shirt does not look bad either!

Jovy, you just look amazing in that dress!
