Yoo Family Newborn Portraits

The Yoo family invited me into their home on New Year’s Day of 2023 to capture newborn portraits for their daughter. It was also the first sunny day in quite some time (which, we all later discovered was to be the norm for this very wet California winter). I’m so glad we decided to make […]
