Life By Lens | July 2013

Tampa Children Photographer

I can’t believe it’s been a month since my last blog circle post. This year has definitely flown by! If you have been following my blog for the last few months, you know that I’m a part of a monthly blog circle project with a group of crazy talented photographers where we try to document things in a different way than we normally would. At the end of my blog post, you can view the next photographer’s post and so on and so on until you’ve come full circle!

Remember I said that my boys never cooperate for any posed photos? Ever? It’s true, they never have…until…a miracle happened few weeks ago. I actually got a couple of photos of their sweet smiling faces! Who are these kids? It didn’t last very long and I had to be quick but I am so happy with these photos. All kidding aside, my boys are growing up way too fast. Brandon is starting Kindergarten in less than a month and my little baby is no longer a baby. And quoting my favorite book that makes me cry every time I read it to the boys:

“I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living,
My baby you’ll be.”

The ONLY reason I picked up my camera and started this photography journey in the first place, to capture their innocence and the essence of their youth, something that I know will change before I know it. I hope they thank me one day!! I know I wish I had more photos of me when I was young, I can probably count the number of photos I have of me under the age of 5 on the fingers of one hand.


I don’t know about you but I think he’s pretty darn handsome!



And no photoshoot is ever complete without my oldest being a complete goofball! There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t put a smile on my face though.

    Nghi, your boys are so handsome! I love that you make sure to take the time to photograph them. I am sure they are going to thank you one day as they look back at their childhood thru all the beautiful photos. What lucky boys to have their childhood documented so beautifully. And I just love that last one of your oldest being a goofball!

    Ok, first: That’s one of my favourite stories and I can’t ever get through it without tears. Second: Yay! Pics of the boys! They’re gorgeous, Nghi! I love the black and white shot, looks like it was taken in the 1950’s.
