Seoul Family Photographer

Year in Review – Part 2 – Seoul, Korea Photographer

It’s April now and we’re finally out of winter. Not quite into warm weather yet, but the thick coats are away and the world is starting to wake up around us. This is a great time of the year for photoshoots. If you’re looking for a family photographer or pre-wedding photographer, make sure to book well in advance; it’s a popular time of year. I love this time of year, but you’ll see in part four of this series, that […]

Family Photographer - Seoul, Korea

Year in Review – Part 1 – Seoul, Korea Photographer

Yet another year has passed here in Seoul. It was a big one for me as a photographer and it seems to have gone by particularly quickly. Maybe it’s the amount of work I’ve been doing, maybe it’s the trips I’ve taken for Tattoos of Asia, or maybe I’m just starting to get old. Whatever it is, this has been a whirlwind year at WelkinLight Photography and I’d like to share some of it with you today. As always, I’ll […]

Seoul, Korea - Family Photographer - Grijelva

Grijalva Family – Seoul Family Photographer

Even on a cold day in Seoul, there’s plenty of fun to be had with your family photography session. The palaces still look amazing in winter, despite the leafless trees. With the crisp, clear air, winter light takes on a cool but beautiful tone. If you can brave the cold, there’s no reason not to have a family session in winter. It’s also a time when there are far fewer people in the palaces! Even in the frigid air, young […]

2016 Year in Review Part 3 – Seoul Photographer

The clock ticked over and we’d blown the funding goal out of the water for our Kickstarter project. Wesley, Pablo, and I sat down for a well deserved glass of whiskey and stared out at the Han River for a couple of hours. A mixture of shock, affirmation, and fear for what was to come kept us running on adrenaline as we chatted through how far we had come. The book was ready, but little did we know how difficult […]

2015 Year in Review – Part 3 – Korea Photographer

Welcome to the third installment of my year in review here. With MERS in full swing here in Korea, and travel warnings popping up everywhere, we had a quieter than usual summer here. But it did give some space for more personal work, and respite before the end of year rush. After a couple of international trips in June, it was great to start July back in Seoul with a local expat family. With the trees finally in their full […]

Korea Adoption Photographer

Davis’ Adoption Day

The email came in. We’re leaving in 24 hours, it said. Can you be available in three days time to photograph our family? That’s how things happen here in Korea, even for adoptions, and thus, adoption photography in Seoul. I quickly checked my calendar. Absolutely, I replied. Lori and Steve were pretty excited at this point, and needless to say, so was I. It would be wonderful to finally put a close on chapter 1 of this story. Steve and […]

Korea Adoption Photography

Adoption Photography Photographs allow us to look back to moments in our lives and relive memories of special times. Some of the most special moments in your family’s history are those when new members join. With an adoption in Korea, there are several special moments that I offer sessions for: the first meetings, the custody meeting, and a post-custody family session. Each of these has a slightly different approach but all are focused on making sure you and your child […]

2013 Year in Review Part 2

The second part of this year was to be a crazy time. I worked through personal projects, met some more wonderful people, and took on more jobs than I could handle (lesson learned). Somewhere in between all this we moved into a new apartment and Jeehe started working full time again. Join me for this, the second part of the rabbit hole. This began with one of my most ambitious images so far… Which was directly followed by almost missing […]
