Life Lately...

It's been a long time since I posted a personal blog post! I have been putting this blog post off. Life lately ... has been busy. No surprise right?! So here is what we have been up to... family visits, holidays, photo sessions, business trips, gardening, birthday parties, spending more cuddly time with Haylee and vacation trips! If you're following on social media you have seen it! haha! We haven't really had downtime and time for me to post a personal blog on here. I'll have to do a part 2 with Mother's day photos. I am also going to post the Cheerwine festival blog soon! Make sure you follow our family Instagram and facebook page Kiengkham Family Adventures for daily pics and videos!

Some highlights:

- We celebrated our Thai/Lao New Year & Easter with our family from NC & AL!!!
- I had a Prom & Grad photo session! Ya'll should take a look! So freaking amazing!
- I went to NYC for a women's conference. It was for a night, but I learned so much! I want to go back and do more touristy things because I didn't get to do all that!! My social media lacked some good city photos.
- Souwan is playing kickball this season and they won their first game! I can't wait to go cheer him again.
- Haylee is growing so fast! I mean seriously!!! We're enjoying this season so much. She's now dressing herself, feeding herself, singing, using the big girl potty!!!
- She's also talking so much! She can count to 3, She can say ABC, she says Bless you, Thank you, Please ( I have 2 funny stories...), Awesome sauce (that one cracks me up), I want money (oh boy!), she calls Grandma, Gamma, she knows the sounds the barn animals make, she knows her body parts from stomach to her fingers!
- My funny stories with her talking...(I wish I could record everything she says) 1st story - We were in the restaurant and she wanted the waitress's name tag and Haylee asked her for her name tag and said please. The waitress gave her the name tag because she asked politely LOL! 2nd story - We were at church and they asked if there were any more announcements and Haylee responded NOOO! LOL! I guess she was ready to hear the sermon LOL! I am loving these moments. I wish I could record it all.
- We spent sometime on vacation. We went to the pool and art museums! I loved being able to teach Haylee to swim with her floaties. She loves the water!

Coming up -

I'll try to post a part 2 and more personal blog posts in the next coming months. Trust me, it's on my daily goals! We have some fun summer plans. Haylee starts art classes in June! We hope to sign her up for Summer dance classes. I have been looking into it so lets hope it works out. If not maybe next year?! We're going to the zoo! At the end of summer with friend's visiting and we're planning a trip to Disney/Universal in Florida! Soon it will be Haylee's 2nd birthday!

Take a look at all the photos below!

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 documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. 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…
