My background story

o I started doing portrait photography since I was 15 (don't be deceived by my Asian genes -that's over a decade ago!), working as a 2nd shooter for my uncle's wedding photography business. I've always been a daydreamer, a firm believer of chasing my own dreams; I wanted to capture something more intimate than a day's event. My deep rooted desire to capture memories was set ablaze when my dearest furbaby Chibi fell critically ill.

They say "the days are long but the years are short"; I started working full time ever since I got Chibi and spent most of my days working long hours in the hospital on top of managing my photography business as a solopreneur. When people ask me what my dog looks like, I realised that my phone was filled with photos of work (mainly bloody body parts), clients' photographs, and hardly any photos of her. We had no photos of us together at all. I realised how important it is to capture the little moments of your pet/ your child's life that just fill your heart with joy.

Here, you might think a dog isn't as significant. But Chibi was like a child to me. I learned the value of being able to have memories - like a couples session or a family session - frozen in time for me to look back on. These are not just photos of a dog, they are nostalgic memories that reminded me of the little moments we shared. Moments of the way she wags her tail in a 360 motion when we come home from work. Moments of the way she looks at us begging for food when we are eating. Moments when she pressed her doggy bell to be let out to potty. Moments so trivial yet powerful that it brings me back all the memories of her.  

"If you don't think photos are important wait until they are all you have left."  

I love highlighting the best in people and help them tell their stories. Gifting my clients the ability to freeze the best of times fills my heart with so much joy. I guess you could say it's my super power!
