My Perfect Sunday

You know that feeling you get when a beautiful person walks into a room?  I have a theory that sunsets have the same effect.  People who are outside playing as the sun disappears below the horizon undergo a subtle, euphoric giddiness.  I figure it’s just what happens when you’re in the presence of beauty.

Last Sunday, my dear old friend Vicky Nguyen and I went out for some pregnancy portraits.  Since I don’t get to spend a lot of time with my own kids during the week, I’ve gotten into the habit of bringing the whole family on assignment with me.

I’ve known Vicky for 13 years; I’ve known Monita (above, with the bike) since 5th grade.  And there we all were, on an unusually warm winter evening, at Rancho San Antonio, playing in the shadow of a giant bay tree against a backdrop of pink and orange.  The kids AND adults were being extra silly.  Who knew back then that we'd all be growing old and raising our kids together?  Maybe it was the sunset working its magic again.  But as a photographer, dad, and nature lover, to be in the presence of so many things and people I love, it was heavenly.

I loved hearing your perspective on this. Our babies are lucky to have Uncle Kiet in their lives. Who'd a thunk we'd raise our kids together and have so many memories to share and look back on? Here's to many, many more!
PS I love the pics of the kids together. Hilare.
