It is always such an honor for me when dear friends hire me to capture photographs for them. Eun Jung and her family were our neighbors and friends in LA for three years. It is an amazing blessing to live in community and watch the children around you grow up. Through Eun Jung’s friendship, I learned so much about her beauty and strength as a woman, graduate student, mother, friend, and wife. We had many conversations around the pool or halfway between our front doors where we would share our daily life as well as stories of our childhood and culture. For Eun Jung, it was important for her family to document and remember their youngest daughter Stefie’s 100th day of life. She asked me to capture some images of Stefie and their entire family so they could share this special day with loved ones back home.
Aren’t they a BEAUTIFUL family? They are always on the go.
When EJ went into labor, I had the amazing blessing of hanging out with Joyce and Daniel. I remember how calmly EJ dropped of the kids and gave me instructions while I was thinking: “Hurry! Go to the hospital!” Maybe that was a helpful preparation for my own 30 hour labor. I had fun with these two.
Isn’t Stefie simply gorgeous?? This baby pose makes me smile!
While she is older than my little guy Samuel, I think he may fall for Stefie in the not-so-distant future.
Living so far away from their family and main support system was challenging but they make it work!
Mother + Daughter = Sacred Beauty
When I first met Eun Jung, her eldest daughter Joyce was incredibly shy. Now, she is quite the extrovert.
She is an avid reader and loves to share about her latest excursions to the library.
This outtake encapsulates the tension of having more than one child, wouldn’t you agree?
Thank you Eun Jong for inviting me into your life and asking me to document such a beautiful time in your family’s life!
