tomoko+tom {and critters!}: lifestyle portrait session - oakridge, nc

last wednesday evening terry and i headed out to tomoko + tom's beautiful home for a few fun portraits.
joining them was their seven month old yellow lab puppy, connie, who is so full of spunk & energy! we attempted to get their kitty mekong to participate, however she wasn't amused!  i love the one & only shot I got of the four of them together,  as tom's expression is priceless!

 tomoko and tom's house is located on a wooded lot facing a large pond, surrounded by mature trees, and beautiful plants. it made for a nice setting for portraits. we've known tomoko and tom for a couple of years now. we met through a group of mutual friends called the "winers & diners" who enjoy getting together about once a month to share food, wine, and recipes with one another - there are some amazing cooks in our group!

and speaking of which, tomoko and tom asked us to join them that evening for a traditional japanese dinner, which tomoko lovingly prepared for us.  another couple, ayako and carl {who are also in our "group"} came over and joined us for dinner too.  what an enjoyable evening we all had!  if only i'd remembered to photograph the food, it was a work of art and so delicious!
