The 2013 Calendar is Here (for a Short While) – Los Angeles Fine Art Photographer

These calendars have been limited to a private group of people in the past.  Due to heightened interest, I’ve decided to make them available for purchase.  They are 11″x17″ calendars with nice-sized images (roughly 8.5″x10.5″) guaranteed to impress.  The images were hand-selected from our travels of 2012 (this time in the Pacific region) and meticulously processed.  So, please, only give these calendars to the very special people in your life this holiday season or I will be very offended.

Warning: The purchase site may be taken down without notice.  So if you are interested, don’t take too long to decide.

The Much Anticipated 2012 Calendar is Here

For those of you that know about a tradition that we’ve carried on for years at Jean Huang Photography, I know you’ve been anxious to see the new year’s calendar.

As a tradition, we make a new calendar with the select few images from our travels during the year.  This is our way of sharing our passion with our beloved clients.  This year, it’s Japan!

The calendar made its début at an event yesterday.  And it’s definitely received lots of “woos” and “aahs”.

Visit this page under the “Holiday Gifts”.  Sit back, watch the slide show and enjoy the colors of Japan unfold in front of your eyes.

If you’ve seen our calendars from previous years, you’d know the quality of paper and images that go into them.  In fact, this year, we’ve made them even better.  They are now 11″x17″ calendars with nice sized images (roughly 8″x10″) guaranteed to impress.

If, and that’s an “if”, you are compelled to own one for yourself or give as a gift, call or e-mail or fill out a form for Jean Huang Photography. 🙂

New Offerings Just In Time for the Holidays! – Los Angeles Photographer

The holiday season is quickly drawing to an end.  Can you believe it?  Only 11 days to make selections for the important ones in your life (let alone the time needed to package and even mail it).  And your feet are hurting from all the walking and searching.  If you are among the lucky ones, your eyes are red from staring at the computer monitor too long.  And worse, you are at loss for what perfect gifts to pick for the very loved ones.  

No sweat (not easy to sweat in winter :-)), we have an easy and elegant solution for you – the photography gift card!  All you need is 5 minutes of your time and we will take care of the rest.  Time is limited though if you want to make sure the “beautiful item” arrives before the Christmas dinner.

Go make your purchases here.  And the person that receives it would thank you (I mean, really).  Who wouldn’t love a piece of art on their wall, made out of their family, especially their babies’ portraits?

Hurry before the cards run out.  Just 5 minutes will allow you to chill out for the rest of the “shopping season” and look like a hero (with good taste) on the “big day”. 🙂

Here’s the front view of this beautifully designed card:

What are you still waiting for?  Run….!! 

Life is in the Moments, Celebrate It! – Los Angeles Custom Portrait Photographer

Life is in the moments that we live in.  This has been my belief and the exact reason that got me started doing portrait photography.  Now, it may sound biased coming from a photographer.  But people, do whatever it makes sense to you to capture the beautiful moments that we may (most likely) not be able to “go back” and retrieve.

Yesterday, I ran into a gentleman.  Upon learning that I’m a photographer, he shared the thought that he’s been wanting to do a family portraiture now that his parents are not getting any younger.  I love meeting people like this as it shows that they are passionate about their lives and that they are living and breathing the moments.

In the (sort of) modernistic world that we exist in, we tend to get buried in the “busy-ness” and forget why we are doing all the tasks on the to-do list.  The next thing we know, our kids have left the home and our parents are leaving (or have left) this world.  We wonder where our lives went and we have nothing tangible to refer back to.

Life is like water in a river.  It flows right by us whether we pay attention to it or not.  So take a moment out of your life, from time to time, to stop and dip your toes in the water, make a splash or even take a bath, if you’d so feel like it. 🙂  As I always say, life won’t wait.  So starting today, smell it, taste it, feel it…

My parents had a big wedding anniversary (to avoid the risk of aging myself, I choose to not disclose the total number of years).  Like any couple of that generation, they’ve been through a lot.  I thought it’d be nice to document this milestone in their lives together with a nice portraiture.  In my mind, it’d be a gift that when they look upon 20 or 30 years from now, it brings them right back to where we are today.  I hope this nice canvas gallery wrap has done just that – simple, elegant and memorable.  It’s sitting beautifully on my parents’ living room wall.

What memory would you capture for your loved ones this holiday season, or anytime of the year?

P.S. Excuse me for putting mosaic on my parents’ eyes.  They are MY parents and, I know, I’m being selfish. 🙂
P.P.S. Did you know that this was a typical pose for wedding picture at the time that my parents got married? 

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.

I’m on a Roll with These Lotus Flowers – Los Angeles Fine Art Photographer

Boy, am I on a roll or not?  It’s the third image that I’ve processed of these lotus flowers (to see the other two, please click here and here).  Needless to say, they are my favorite as we speak.  And I have to thank Rita for letting me in her beautiful garden to capture the short-lived elegance!

What do you think of them?  Have you fallen in love with these delicate angels yet?

This image would have been a beautiful addition to your living room as a frame-less canvas gallery wrap as well.  Well, why not create a wall art combination using more than one image?

You Know I can’t Get Enough of Lotus Flowers – Los Angeles Fine Art Photographer

The best way to cool off in a dog day of summer, for me, is to process the beautiful images of lotus flowers.  So, it’s only natural that I made this image shortly after the one I shared the other day.   Plus, wouldn’t it be nice to cool off under the shade like the one provided by this large lotus leaf?

This image would have been a beautiful addition to your living room as a frameless canvas gallery wrap panel as well. For additional fine art photography samples, please visit here. To explore home decoration ideas with my photography, please contact me by clicking here.

I’d love that you share your thoughts as well. 🙂 

What a Perfect Art Piece for Summer with Lotus Flower – Los Angeles Fine Art Photography

As I’ve said time and again, spring is one of my favorite seasons to photograph nature.  While summer presents fewer opportunities, I would not give up a chance to capture the most elegant flower for summer – lotus flower.

What could have cooled you off other than the delicate texture and the pastel colors of a lotus flower?

This image would have been a beautiful addition to your living room as a canvas gallery wrap as well.  For additional fine art photography samples, please visit here.  To explore home decoration ideas with my photography, please contact me.

Sample slideshow video with newborn photography images – Los Angeles Photographer

As a photographer, I have long been thinking about a new format of product.  

The idea came about because my clients keep telling me that, even though they have beautiful wall art pieces from a select few of the images that I produce from our photography sessions, they like ALL of the ones that I presented to them.  So to create something beautiful and something that allows my clients to hold on to and to “show off” the nice portraits has been an obsession for me. 

One day, an aha moment came and this slideshow show video was produced, using some sample images from a newborn photography session.

Now, would my mom (and dad) clients be even happier customers? 🙂

What a unique way to present your portraits on a “floating” gallery block – Los Angeles Children’s Photographer

One of the ways that I add value to my clients is to always be on the look-out for unique and creative ways to present the beautiful portraits.  I had a portrait session with the family of Beau and Stacy and never had a chance to write about it.

The fact is, their daughter Savannah gave me lots of interesting images, as you know how my photography is inspired by children.  I thought the “floating” gallery block would be a nice addition to any family’s nursery or a child’s bedroom.  As a result, I designed this sample product using some images of Savannah’s cute expressions:

As you see in the images above, this “floating” gallery block is a series of smaller gallery blocks constructed as a collage on an overall large background, also made of a gallery block.  The photographs are printed on Kodak ENDURA Metallic photo paper with a satin laminate, which are then adhered to solid wood with perfect 90-degree corners.  What’s not reflected in the above 2 images is the beautiful sheer glow that came from the metallic photo paper, toned down just perfectly by the laminate.

This is another frame-less, ready to hang product that will add colors and characteristics to any family’s walls and sizes and colors can be customized.

I would love to hear your thoughts and/or questions.
