Seoul Proposal Photography - Changgyeong Palace

Surprise at Changgyeonggung – Seoul Proposal Photography

On an early morning in September, just as Seoul’s palaces open their gates to visitors, I scooted quickly and quietly along the paths to Changgyeonggung’s greenhouse. Kyle followed behind, following my instructions but not hurrying like I was. His mind was occupied with keeping calm as he prepared to propose. We’d been in touch for a few weeks before the proposal and settled on this location as a good compromise for all the elements Kyle wanted. He’d originally hoped for […]

Seoul Forest Family Photos in Autumn

2023 Year in Review – Part 3

Welcome to the third blog in my Year in Review series for 2023. This section takes us through the dramatic weather of summer and into the calmer month of September when autumn starts to show its hand. Despite the heat, summer offers beautiful greens that we don’t get at any other time of year and the beginning of autumn can be equally as beautiful as when all the leaves change (but it lasts a lot longer!).   July – Family, […]

Summer Family Photos in Changdeokgung

Ha Joon’s Family Pictures – Summer in Seoul

As the weather gets cooler and we begin to miss the sweaty mess that is the Korean summer, I find myself looking back over the year’s sessions and reminiscing about the fun we had. Daisy had reached out to me very early in the year about this session. Her family was still waiting on their court date for custody, but with an estimated timeline in hand, wanted to start the discussion. As soon as they had dates, Daisy got back […]

Afternoon Light for Family Photos at Changgyeonggung

An Adventure with Hayoon – Family Photography at Changgyeonggung

This session is one of those ones that stays with you. Neah had reached out to me well before the family’s court date and we had tentatively planned to have a family photography session together following their custody day. With all the uncertainties surrounding custody and how Hayoon might be feeling as her situation changed so dramatically, Neah and Tai were understandably nervous about having a photoshoot so soon. We agreed to stay in touch and work something out as […]

Family Portrait Photographer Seoul, Korea - Hudec

A Morning with the Hudec Family

It’s always great to get a recommendation from another family. In this case, the Hudecs had heard about me from my session with the Love family. I had a great session with them last year, so I was excited at the chance to work with some of their friends! My conversation with Elizabeth was short and easy. We knew what we wanted to achieve so it was just a case of picking where and when we would meet. The family […]

Spring Family Photoshoot in Seoul

Black Family Photo Shoot in Yeouido Park

An Air Quality Rating of “hazardous” may not seem like the perfect time for a family photoshoot, but the Black family and I made our way out to Yeouido Park nonetheless. We spent an hour together in the park mixing it up between letting the boys play and getting them where we needed them for the shoot. I first worked with the Black family around two years ago when Gibson was about to turn one. We had a great session […]

Family Photographer Seoul Korea

Armstrong Family Photography in Seoul, Korea

When Janelle reached out to me, I was waiting for a train from Itanagar to Guwahati in India at the end of a trip for my Tattoos of Asia project. It was an unplanned early exit, as we found out that rebel groups would be closing the roads out of Arunachal Pradesh and if we wanted to leave we should do it now. So, I was quite excited to get some good news in my inbox as I was sitting […]

Freelance Photographer in Seoul

Emmett Family Photography in Seoul

Andie and Jason were on their way back to Seoul to take custody of Khi when they reached out to me. It was the beginning of summer and Seoul had just finished coming back to life. Everything was green and the weather wasn’t too hot yet. It was going to be the perfect time for some fun family photography. Unfortunately, the other two Emmett children wouldn’t be joining this trip, but Andie and Jason wanted to take the opportunity to […]

Wiesner - Seoul Family Photographer

The Wiesner Family – Seoul Photographer

As I sit here writing, it is pouring rain outside as our monsoon season begins. The rising humidity has reached its peak and now is getting an injection from the downpour that opened up a few hours ago. My balcony is ankle deep in water and I feel a longing for the nicer times of the year. So, today we’ll journey back to spring and meet the Wiesner family.   Taylor, Jeremy, and their son Parker were here during some […]

Lucy’s Little Brother – Family Photographer

Almost exactly three years ago, I met with Brian and Lisa as they travelled to Seoul to meet the newest member of their family, Lucy. The sweet, reserved little girl we met then has since grown into a sweet,  outgoing little girl, and I was absolutely beside myself when I got a message from Brian saying they were traveling again to adopt another new member of the family, Henry. Lisa and Brian invited me into their family again to document […]
