1 Week Old! Newborn Baby C

Every time I get to do a newborn shoot where it’s the second baby… it’s always much different than if it’s the first. And no doubt…the parents are probably more tired since they have to manage their first child too... but everyone is always more relaxed (I guess this is where experience kicks in).   I met M&A at their place and this is where I got to meet both of their adorable daughters. I actually met their father when we were working together at a recent wedding shoot since he’s part of Ryan Buan’s Cinematography team.

Their newborn baby daughter was 1 week old at the time of the shoot and was so chilled out which made for easy posing of pics.  Their older daughter is super cute.. and we managed  to get the sisters together for a few shots.

I want to thank my friend Ryan B for the warm intro to this sweet family and I sincerely want to thank & congratulate my new friends A&M on their cute daughter. Here are a few pics from our shoot.

Your Friend, Leon

Welcome D&A! Beautiful Newborn Twins.

T&J are good friends of ours and from the day we heard the news that they were expecting twins, we were so happy for them.  Too bad Gi wasn’t able to join me for the shoot as she would have also fell in love with D&A – they are so adorable.  Shooting these two babies side by side, it was cute to see how different their personalities are.  This parenting business looks so natural for both J&T.  Given that they were working off just a few hours of sleep probably (for the week) they looked great.

I want to congratulate and sincerely thank my friends for having me capture this beautiful family. D&A are insanely blessed to have you both as parents.  Here are just a few pics from our shoot.

Love, Uncle Leon

Hello Baby R! Newborn Photography

I was saying to Gi the other night… if we’re blessed with another child, I wonder how hard it would be to divvy up the love?  I know it’s such a dumb question but right now… it’s so easy to give all your love to one.  The most common answer I got from all my friends is metaphorically speaking… you just grow another heart. That works for me.

M&J and their adorable daughter C and now their newborn son are a beautiful family. On the day of this shoot, M’s parent’s were in town which worked out well as they got to squeeze in a few pics and entertain the eldest daughter as we got some solo pics of baby R. At the time of the shoot, baby R was a little over a week old…. And super co-operative.  We worked on some family shots with everyone and even got a chance to hop outside quickly for a few pics.   I want to thank our mutual friend/sister Erika for introducing  me and of course especially thank M&J for having me do this session for your adorable fam.  Here are a few pics from our shoot.

Your Friend, Leon Chai

Baby E only 1 month old. Baby Photography

This shoot was good times as I got to see my friend D and got to meet his beautiful family including his one month old daughter.  On the day of their shoot, we spent equal time playing catch up and taking pics.  The star of the show was about a month old and was so alert.  Baby E was perfect in front of the camera and totally tolerated us positioning her and moving her around.  Since the weather was gorgeous that morning, we stepped outside afterwards to capture that environment.

I sincerely want to thank and congratulate my friends D & T again on their baby girl.  I really appreciate the support and lets set up a playdate to have our daughters meet soon.  Here are just a few pics from our shoot.

When Baby H was only one week old. Newborn & family Photography

I don’t want embarrass my friends A&M but they’re such a picture perfect family.  I am honestly so happy that I got to do this newborn shoot for their baby girl as the last time I saw them was when I did newborn(ish) pics for their son.

The best part about doing this shoot was watching the older sibling interact with his baby sister. Big brother L was so kind and gentle which lead to some seriously adorable pics.  I think I said the exact same thing before their son’s blog post, but when I got to the home and saw the parents … you would have never guessed that they just had a baby.. they looked great.

I want to thank my friends A&M for having me capture their beautiful daughter and their family again – thank you so much for the continued support.

Your friend, Leon

Photography She’s so perfect. 10 days old, Newborn

I know this sounds crazy, but I really, really miss this newborn stage.   The even crazier part is that, even though our daughter is not even a year old… I can hardly remember her at this stage.   Words every parent will agree on... you just can’t believe how fast they grow.

When I got to L&G’s place and met their little baby Z for the first time - she looked so beautiful and perfect.  L&G also looked amazing for being new parents… both so calm and energetic.  It was such a sweet shoot capturing their daughter as she was perfect in front of the camera.   Baby Z worked with every pose and didn’t fuss one bit.   We got a chance to do some pics in Baby Z’s nursery, which was great since they did such an amazing job prepping her room. And speaking of prep… I loved how Mom had various outfits all planed out and ready for this shoot.

To my friends L&G, it’s so great to see you both and congrats on your gorgeous daughter – you guys makes great parents. Thank you so much for your support and having me capture this precious life stage for your family. Here are just a few pics from our session.

Your friend, Leon
