hello & welcome! + jacob & jeisa | family portrait in japanese tea garden, san francisco, ca

Hello all!

Welcome to our new blog! Hopefully this one will be more alive, kickin', and regularly updated with photo previews, stories, promotions, and more. We're revamping some things at Fizzy to keep things more contemporary, consistent, and just plain nice looking.

To start off our official FIRST post in our new blog (woo!), we first want to say Happy Belated-Thanksgiving! Hope everyone had a stuffing and fun holiday. We had a really scrumptious Asian/American/hodgepodge-of-goodness-styled dinner, complete with blackberry-apple pie, good-ole traditional mashed potatoes, pan-fried stuffed tofu and bell peppers, and thit heo quay + banh hoi...and then some. Mmmm, definitely thankful for leftovers! ;) There was also crazy news about terrible events that happened on Black Friday, so hopefully all of you were successful getting what you wanted, but safely! (Those actually seem mutually-exclusive the more I think about it...)

As we hope will be an ongoing theme in our blog, we have a recent shoot to share for this first post! We had a wonderful autumn photoshoot right before Thanksgiving at the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco. The garden is absolutely lovely. There were magnificent pagodas and bridges (even a gorgeous drum bridge) set against a backdrop of really lush and colorful trees. Definitely a nature enthusiast's haven and the pure image of relaxation. That landscape with the sound of crunching leaves, the feeling of a soft breeze, inhaling fresh, crisp air... just simply ahhh.

Jacob & Jeisa themselves were incredibly affectionate kids, especially with each other and their parents. They were initially fixated on their Cherrios (we don't blame them; snacking is after all one of our hobbies), but they were pretty happy and enthusiastic after their tummies were satisfied.

We're going to start a "moral of the shoot" trend in which we will detail some important/interesting/funny/random fact or realization that we came to understand by the end of the shoots in our posts! Hopefully it will not only let you learn something about our session from the day, but also learn something about our subjects, photographing, and just stuff in general. (  Disclaimer, these are not going to be necessarily deep statements (:  ) So here it goes...

Moral of the shoot: Kids never tire from running around in circles and are pretty much ecstatic the whole time they're doing it.

That's all for this celebratory first post! Thanks for reading; stick around and don't be a stranger. :)

P.S.  We promise that future posts will not be so freaking long.
