Family Session


Back in Taipei with the kids


This trip was special for Weishan and her husband because it was their first time returning since their honeymoon--and this time they brought their 7 and 10 year olds! We chose a location that was only a seven minute walk from where they were staying for easy access.


I always show up to the shoot locations 15-30 minutes in advance to do a final walkthrough. During my walkthrough, I saw small patches of blue sky, and it felt as if the weather was going to clear up! But as the clock turned to 8:00 AM (when our session was supposed to start), it started pouring down rain. Luckily, this family showed up with four umbrellas and a good attitude, ready to start and have fun!


The hour passed by so quickly with these four as we shared our favorite hobbies, movies, dance moves, places to go in Taipei and much more. Though it was our first time meeting in person, it felt like we had known each other for a long time. As we chatted and took photos, the weather kept drastically changing--from cold to warm and humid; rain to overcast skies. By the end of the session, I was carrying four jackets, four umbrellas, a purse inside of an even bigger backpack, and my camera bag (haha!).


I was sad to have the session end because I wanted to keep hanging out! What a blessing it is to get to make connections with people that you'll want to keep for a long time to come. Come back to Taipei again, soon!
