Finally, Japan… 🇯🇵

Last Spring Break – the whole family went to Japan for a vacation. Remember when I wrote before how Japan has always called my soul? Well, my soul finally answered the call.

Salve and her beautiful family (2016)

So I finally was able to go through the photos that I took of my friend, Salve, and her beautiful family. These were taken last December 2016 when they came here for a visit in Boise. And with the winter and snow as a backdrop, who could resist an impromptu family photo shoot? 😍😍😍  

Little Shanae

Who could resist those chinky eyes and chubby cheeks? 😍 I fell inlove with this little one that I had to just lie on the floor with her and take this photo 💛 Email me at ruth.ilasco@icloud.com if you have queries about this or if you simply want to chat. ☺️

Fairy (Concept Photo 2011)

I didn’t really like the set of photos that I took for this shoot. 😦  There were numerous models and I wasn’t entirely happy with the batch I took.  But this is the only photo from that shoot that I really did love.  So I will only post this one photo from that.  🙂 Model:Continue reading “Fairy (Concept Photo 2011)”
