Life is a messy path. When you are feeling overwhelmed, confused, rejected and uninspired, take a walk to the beach and breathe in deeply. It will come to you with an empty mind that all of these emotions will pass and clarity will surface. If not already, there will at least be peace within. This is exactly what I did this week and lucky I’m always coming back happy hearted
This is a shoot I did for a friend’s friend few months ago. Her baby boy turned 100 days old then she was looking for a photographer to document this very special birthday. Although born and raised in China, I moved to Canada over a decade ago. Deep down really not so familiar with the tradition or let’s put it that way, mostly I’m not a tradition kinda of gal…Only in the past few years away from home, I started […]
Every season has it charm. When we slow down and soak our senses to embrace it, we discover the beauty and spirit enveloping ourselves. This is a shoot I did in early fall with my inspiring friend Amy. She has gorgeous green eyes and kindred spirit in the sense that she is so curious about everything and everyone. We went on a hike in the woods with waterfall after the rain. She will stop just to kiss the raindrop. ” […]
This is not a ordinary love story. This is not boy meets girl, fall in love, get married and make babies stories. This is about youth, passion, rebellion and bravery. She cross the ocean to meet him for the first time just because she wanted to break free from her traditional Chinese Family. She desired a baby not a boyfriend nor a husband. There she got it and raise her up on her own. Then strangely and beautifully they fell […]
Last weekend, I took a short ferry ride to a little island close by – “Sidney Spit”. It was a gloomy day. Clouds were very pretty. All of a sudden it started to rain and this flat little drop of land has no shelter. So I just stood still and let the rain come down. I felt like a ripple of the ocean for some reason in the mid of tall grasses.. Hope you like this image.
We don’t dance because we can , nor because we crave it, we dance to tell our soul , we dance to live , we dance to become ourselves , we dance because we must. We must dance because we are dancers at the heart! Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been pretty obsessed over dancing. The freedom and elegance our body possesses is so inspiring. Guess it’s a shame I didn’t turn into a professional dancer but […]
This is a photograph taken on a Sunday afternoon after rain. I went to the forest with my dog. One of the most peaceful thing. It feels like washing my soul just wandering in the woods along. All my thoughts have drifted away. To follow the scent of wet moss, I speculated, stop and breathe. Really wish I could stay in here for eternity as a creature in the tree.This is it. hourless time. No need to find a way […]
Sorry I haven’t been keeping up with the blogging…. There are still so many photos I’m proud of from the short trip in India that I’m slowly processing. Yeah turtle speed, I know…This one was taken by Pondicherry beach at sunset. My favorite time of the day! I stood there for a good 1/2 hour to see them cross and climb and finally sit down. It was some magic moment. For a second it almost felt romantic. Orange sky, sunbeams. […]
