Yesterday we went to a BBQ in Beresford Park, hosted by my close friend Robyn. It was her fiance's 27th birthday last week, and it's an annual celebration that started 7 years ago. We had bbq wings, hotdogs, fat steaks, hamburgers and the usual works.

I've known Joanne since the old school days back in 1996 when we went to summer school going into the eleventh grade! Our friendship blossomed the moment we met when I saw her painting her nails in bright blue Hard Candy nail polish :) From high school to University at Simon Fraser, we were tied to the hips and spent every waking moment together (NO JOKE)!!!! Jojo has been with me to the moon and back, and I'll be forever grateful for the everlasting friendship this girl has given me!

This morning, I was anxiously awaiting for the newest addition to my arsenal of Canon Lenses! Meet Canon 16-35 f/2.8!! This is the wide angle lens that I've been debating to get while Canon was having their rebate sale! I finally decided to take the plunge before the sale was over and rewarded myself AGAIN with this beautiful glass :) This is my 3rd addition in the last 2 months and one of my final big purchases of the year! I think this will be my walk around lens when I go travelling...I'm excited to use this new baby!!
My Canon 16-35 debut......
Here's a wide angle view of my living room on the 5D full frame:
An irresistable beauty...

I photographed the Do family recently, and I was asked to do another short session for baby Raylynn the past weekend :) This time, her little pal Jordan and his mom came along to take a few portraits as well! It's so cute how the two mommies are already planning their futures together as girlfriend and boyfriend! Unfortanely, the two kiddies wouldn't sit still for a romantic picture together!
On to the photoshoot! Enjoy :)
I just ADORE Jordan's stylish hair! He's such a little heartbreaker!

Felisha and Renan are so in love with each other. When they said their vows in front of all their family and friends on 6.7.08, their lives changed forever as they became husband and wife! Thank you to the both of you, I am so honored to have had the priviledge to share one of the most important days of your lives! All the best and congratulations!
The beautiful bride, Felisha

Last weekend, Randy and I photographed a memorable wedding....I've been swamped trying to edit 1000+ pictures....I'll post those photos in the next couple days....but for now, enjoy the teaser picture that we took from Party Booth Rentals! What a fun idea for your guests to take home at the end of the night!

I was pleasantly surprised by a message I received on Myspace, that is how Ann found me and decided to schedule a family session! After communicating through email for the past month, I finally had the chance to meet Ann, her husband Linh, and her two precious daughters, Lana & baby Raylynn.
We started off the photo session at my home studio because they wanted some formal pictures of their family.
Lana, 9, is the most perfect older sister! She's so tender and sweet to baby Raylynn :)
Raylynn is 4 months old and she's one CUTE baby!
After the formal pictures, Ann wanted to do an outdoor location with her family. I suggested to go to Fisherman's Wharf and they happily agreed! The entire time, Linh was so nervous whenever I had the camera pointed in his direction...he insisted that he didn't know how to smile naturally, but I think he did a great job!
In this shot, I gave Lana ONE goal: To make daddy laugh! She did a terrific job!
Ooh...and I just LOVE Lana's bright yellow flats!
Lana was so well mannered and photogenic the entire time :) She definitely made my job easy!
Ann is simply radiant and she's lucky to have such a beautiful family :)
Linh is quite out-numbered by the females in the family :)
Thank you for the wonderful photo shoot! I hope you enoy the pictures!
