Happy Children's Day - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Today marks the Universal Children's Day in many countries.  May we hold our children's hands, nurture, protect, guide and build them as they feel their way around in this world; and also take the opportunity to let go when the time arrives.  And yes, there is such time in every child's life.  If you are ever in doubt, refer to P.J. O'Rourke's methodology:   

“You know your children are growing up when they stop asking you where they came from and refuse to tell you where they're going.” 

Have a happy Children's Day to all the parents out there!  Remember, as John W. Whitehead puts it, “Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.”  Until that day, remain a child until you can't pretend anymore.



2011 Halloween Costume Photo Contest - Los Angeles Portrait Photographer

It's that time of the year again! The spirits are looming in...Some of you have partied all weekend long in your "special outfits". Others will show off (in darkness) tonight trick-or-treating. In any case, make sure you have proof that your costume is the most fun/creative/scary...because we at Jean Huang Photography would like to give out a prize for the voted winner.

You've got the costumes. And you have the camera ready. Let the fun begin here! Any questions can be posted here.

Photographic skill are not judged, however it may help get a few more "likes" that you'd need to win. :-)

In case I haven't made it clear, number one rule of the contest is to HAVE FUN! :-)

Seal the Deal with Love - Los Angeles Children's Photographer

Remember the cuttie pie D2 that we got a quick glimpse the other day?  Well, grandma loved the sneak peek.  So, as we creatives would like to make new stuff, I thought why not design a post card that's stamped with her grandson's images? Notice that, contrary to the ever-changing prices of (real) stamps, these limited editions (currently 2011 edition) are "priceless" and each year, you get to update with new portraits of your children or grand-children.

With these specially made cards in hand, you'd have bragging power to send a post card to all your friends, family, and, heck, anybody that you have a mailing address for. :-)

Before long, you'd have a collection to savor the beloved child's growth over the years.

About the post card, the design can be tweaked and will change from year to year.  Of course we can make it perfectly clean.  But would it be as interesting as this rustic-looking design?

All my clients of 2011 get to have this specially made for them.  Are you one of them? ;-)  Christmas is 67 days away and these cards make perfect gifts.  Just saying... :-)

P.S. The watermark at the bottom will not show in the final product.P.P.S. Post cards come with envelopes.
