kiengkham's korner: souwan's dislike of tomatoes

Souwan and I went to the Farmer's Market and watched the Market Chef. It's inspired by the food network's Iron chef and chopped. We love these shows! It was a blast watching these teams run around the market for fresh vegetables, fruits and meat to cook in a time limit. They had to be very creative and talented for this! Both teams were great making dishes from unknown ingredients.

We went to church for dinner and to welcome our new pastor and his family to our church. I loved the tomato sandwiches, however Souwan was not a big tomato fan. I give him credit for trying something new. His tomato sandwich consisted of one piece of tomato (the size of a quarter) on his sandwich. It was great meeting the new pastor and I am excited for the new beginning. His sermon was inspiring on Sunday. Pssssst, come check us out at Coburn Memorial United Methodist church! (souwan's tomato sandwich picture credit to Dee, thanks Dee! so funny!)

Our garden has watermelons, cilantro, cucumbers, peppers growing. I couldn't get out of the house to take photos because of the heavy rain. Souwan planted some black eyed susan flowers too. New gladiolus and roses have bloomed. It has been pouring rain here for days now. I love the rain for our garden, however I want to get out and have a little sunshine.

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in.

I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

My 5 easy tips for Food Photography

Hi ya'll! I'm Lisa and (in case you didn't know). I'm the owner and photographer of Davong Marie Photography. I've been behind the camera lens since I was a kid and have a passion for all photography. Some is self taught, my aunt and the other is the couple of years of education from my coach KJ! My favorite to photograph is weddings and families however today I want to share my tips for photographing food. These are totally just my tips and not at all how you must do it. Photography is fun, artistic and expressive of who you are. There are so many styles and perspectives. Here are my 5 tips to photographing food:

1. Choose colors that work well together! Think about the color wheel or how you match your clothes. There are so many colors that pair well, my favorite is green and pink!

2. Try different angles. Think about how you see the subject or maybe how a bird sees your subject. My favorite angle to take of food is from the top! If you have something like a cake…
