Maternity Shoot | Bel + Jon = Little Nathanael

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

It was such an honor and blessing to be a part of another family’s life. No words can describe how happy we are to witness the wonderful God-given miracle named Nathanael while still inside Bel’s womb and how both parents glow with happiness in this journey.

For this shoot, we tried to fill and frame them with light as light symbolizes blessings, love, faith, hope and trust in God. Something that this couple has in abundance… and Nathanael, I bet, will one day be the same.




Bel and Jon — Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. Little Nathanael is coming out soon and we cannot wait for our next visit again so that we can shoot some more and for our little ones to play together. :) Thank you so much for always being so kind to me and John. We love you so much. God bless you always.

Much love,
Joyce D.Z. (and John, my lighting partner and my light) :)

Aidan Derek Co’s Baptism

Friday, June 4th, 2010

Even though shooting for events wasn’t my cup of tea, I happily agreed to Star when she asked me to take photos from Aidan’s baptism two Sunday’s ago.

Here are some of the photos I took  from that lovely celebration. :)

Shots with the godparents

Aidan with his mom — they are look-alikes :)

With his dad, this time! :)

The proud parents! :)

The beautiful Co family (they look like as if they stepped out of a J. Crew catalog)

Aidan is one lucky baby. Star and Waltz are one of kindest people I know.

I hope to see you again soon.

Much love,

Joyce

Debi + Peng's Pre-Wedding Shoot

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

“Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” – Victor Borge

Before we started that afternoon, they both confessed to me that they aren’t that sweet with each other however with the sound of their laughters emanating almost the entire time I was shooting, I didn’t even notice and actually thought otherwise. Debi told me Peng is so funny and that that is one of the things that she likes about him. She laughs heartily and contagiously and he made her do it even more. It was such a joy to be around them.   :D

For this session, they requested for a fun, playful winter shoot  and “just lots of snow”.  So for location, we actually didn’t have to go far from where they live (the entire state of Minnesota is covered with snow ;) ) — we started at Carriage Hills golf course, moved to various spots in Eagan and then ended up at the Community Center which is close to where she works.

Anyway, it is always hard to pick what to post when there are so many to choose from — plus they are so gorgeous — but here are some of my favorite shots. Enjoy!

(The snow was almost knee-deep but they didn’t mind)


(Up close and personal)

(Our version of ‘Twilight’ with her rings  – yes, it’s a snowball  – I added the texture on post-processing)

(Debi doesn’t have a bad angle — just simply stunning)

(Proofs that they are affectionate with one another. ;) )

(Work it!)

(This is my most fave that day. :) )

Debi and Peng, I send my early BEST of LUCK wishes on your church wedding this December. I bet it will be so beautiful and magical.

Keep on smiling and laughing together. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your life.

Much love,
Joyce

P.S. Their album/slideshow will appear on my website shortly. Stay tuned for that as well. :)

Family Portraits: Minnehaha Falls Park – Ken + Linus + Ayrton

Friday, November 20th, 2009
I enjoyed every moment of this shoot with the De Leon Family (Ken, Linus and Ayrton). Not only we were blessed with warm weather, the sun also kissed and hug us that day.  And to show you how much fun I had with this beautiful family, I decided to  present their photos as if I am laying them on the table for everybody to see. Enjoy!
Their album/slideshow will appear on my website soon. Watch out for that magic button! :)
Have a happy Friday all and enjoy your weekend!
Much love,
Joyce

Not only we were blessed with warm November weather, the sun also kissed and hugged us very generously…  I was in heaven that day. :) And to show you how much fun I had with this beautiful family, I decided to  present all their selected photos as if I am laying them on the table for everybody to see.

Enjoy! :)
