our east coast adventure

Last week we took our family on a road trip to different cities on the East coast to end it with my little brother's graduation at UMass in Massachusetts.

We started in DC, it was Haylee's first time and my mom's first time touring DC. It was a beautiful day seeing the Washington monument, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and the White House. My mom really enjoyed seeing DC and was very excited being there. I really enjoy visiting the monuments, especially Jefferson and Lincoln! Haylee enjoyed running around the city! I was glad for the hiking gear we carried Haylee in because we walked a bunch!

Then we stopped in Philadelphia. We wanted to see the Liberty Bell. It was a beautiful city. I had never been to Philadelphia and it was exciting to visit. I didn't realize it was a national park! The history really came alive and was amazing there.

Our next stop was the big apple, New York City! I have been wanting to see Time Square and I'm so glad we experienced it together. There was so much going on and lots to see. We took Haylee to the Disney store and she ran around so excited. It was a two story store and was so magical. I loved the escalator with the lanterns that looked like the Rapunzel movie. I really wanted to do a tour of the city but we didn't have the time. 

We stayed near Boston for our last part of the trip. Our family went to Chinatown and enjoyed good pho and dumplings. The pho was my favorite. We toured Beacon Hill and that was so beautiful! I loved all of the window boxes. Next was a day in Martha's Vineyard. It was so wonderful and just like i imagined it. The homes with the beautiful blooms! We enjoyed the lobster even though half the day it was raining. After the rain we got to enjoy a little visit to the beach.

My brother graduated from UMass and we are very proud of him. The commencement was very nice with the bag pipes to watching him walk. Haylee fell asleep before she could see her uncle walk but at least we got video proof and lots of photos!

It was a fun family trip and great memories! We will definitely want to visit all these cities again soon! Enjoy some of the photos!

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!

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…
