This may sound odd! But my love for photography stems from regrets. I regret that I don’t have images in hand that artistically reflect some of the biggest milestones in my life. I have NO senior portraits since I grew up in China. The concept of senior portraits doesn’t exist. I have NO beautiful mother to-be photos. I felt uncomfortable getting a maternity shoot done. And I also regret that I don’t have any gorgeous and creative newborn pictures of my two beautiful daughters. Most of these come from the fact that I didn’t like being photographed. Or I didn’t have the right opportunity. But looking back, I realized I missed out on a lot beautiful moments because of it. And I so don’t want others to have the same regrets! This is primarily reason why I began taking interest in photography. Turns out, I am as confident behind the lens as I am shy in front of one, and it didn’t take me long to fall in love with photography!
I now specialize in newborn, maternity, and high school senior portrait and engagement portraits. I feel privileged to photograph the moments that people will cherish forever. I am committed to providing portraits that are exceptionally captured in a timeless manner – the aim is to leave you smiling anytime you see these pictures, whether it is for the first time or years down the road!
