Meet Citirne, a 4-year old little cutie.  She is sweet, happy, independent, and has an abundance of energy.  We started off the photo session at a cute boutique hotel in Huntington Beach, then strolled around town, and later went down to the beach for the sunset.  :-)

I like to play with children instead of asking them to stare and smile for the camera, so it’s fun to see Citrine lecturing her little friend: “Why don’t you smile?  You need to smile for the camera.”

After the photo shoot, Citrine gave me a hug and told me she had a happy day.   It totally made my day!!!  Thanks to my friend Trevona for taking this shot of us.

The Happiest Kids

If you are on our facebook fan page, you know that this new blog post is all about happy kids.  So, without further ado, here is the full story with 20+ pictures :)

Two weekends ago Henry’s old college roommate brought his whole family down from the bay area for a short family getaway. After spending a full day in Disney, they met up with us on Sunday for lunch and a leisure stroll around the neighborhood park.

If you have been to the city of Cerritos, you know that there’s nothing “ordinary” when it comes to Cerritos’ public facilities. The city’s library for example is like a mixture of an aquarium and a museum, complete with escalators and glass elevators. So it’s no surprise that the park we visited had something special to offer as well. Besides the usual playground set-up and lots of open grassy areas, there’s also a “Play Island” you can enter by crossing a bridge. The island itself is surrounded by a large pond, and features lots of interesting architecture (it’s like a miniature village with an early American motive), complete with cutter ship, cannons, and various climbs and slides for the little ones to enjoy.  It is truly an amazing place, for both kids and  kids at heart ;)  Here are some pictures from the day.  We kept on saying these are the happiest kids we’ve ever seen!

We had lunch together and the kids were already having a lot of fun with the camera :)

And these are all un-rehearsed moments!

Am I gonna grow up to be like my crazy brother??

Baby on the swing :)

Pretty impressive… we tried and couldn’t even hang on.  Okay, time to hit the gym!

Do you remember playing with your sister/brother like this?  Fun Times! :)

Love his facial expression!

Happy sparkling eyes!



Hey mom, look at me!
