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.

Lifestyle Family Portraits :: Old Town Monrovia

October 27th, 2011, written by Lucia and Isabella

American writer Gail Buckley once said: “Family faces are magic mirrors.  Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present and future. ”

After several years of residence in the U.S. — schooling, working and building a family together — Jenny and Zephyr decided to move back to the country where they were born, to reunite with loved ones and to provide the children with an enriched cross-cultural upbringing.  They want to celebrate the past, the present and the future ahead by taking some family pictures for memories before leaving for Taiwan, so we headed out to old town Monrovia one sunny afternoon for a lifestyle family portraits session.

Looking at the young couple, one may find it hard to believe that they are already parents of two boys.  Casper is 3 years old, and loves to make faces and follow his big brother around.  Clifford, being two years older and the “cooler” brother, is very assertive in what he wants, and is quite the master LEGO builder!  It was a rather hot day at the shoot, with temperatures reaching into the high 90s; however, we were able to somewhat escape the grueling heat by staying in the shades and taking a refreshment break (thank you Jenny and Zephyr, for treating us to those delicious smoothies!)

We thought it’s sooo cute to see the boys showing up with matching plaid shirts, and loved the colorful balloons and fun toys they brought along too.  Lesson of the day: balloons, smoothies, Legos, and parents who absolutely adore and lavish their children with love make for happy kids!

Here are some of our favorites from the day:

The little ones crack me up.  I love how Casper stands with one foot on top of the other.

They were very serious and concentrated.  Sharing, or a competition? :p
