Bee

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Bee at my home in Hong Kong (I am now also based in New York City). We started with a 1950's style hair and makeup, followed by various outfits including a glam-the-dress session with her amazing red wedding dress and her images are just breathtaking.

Having beautiful photographs that you love is such an amazing gift to yourself and to your family. These images will be cherished for generations to come. Now is the time to pamper and treat yourself to a glamorous hair and makeover and an empowering photoshoot experience. It is a gift of a lifetime!

Before & After


Anne & John

Anne and John celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary last year and contacted me for a portrait session to document their amazing milestone! I am very honored to have photographed this wonderful couple professionally for their very first time ever. Since they have lived in Hong Kong for over 10+ years, we wanted to incorporate some Hong Kong elements in their photographs. They live in this beautiful residential complex with access to a podium and club house, so naturally, we took advantage of the location and did their portrait session there. The entire shoot was photographed in natural light (my favorite light!).

I loved creating these beautiful images you can keep in a folio keepsake box or frame and display as a gallery wall collection. These printed photographs will be treasured for generations to come. One day, your children will look for photographs of you. What will they find?

Nicole

Hello, Hong Kong. I'm back! Backpacking around the world for 12 months was absolutely incredible but I'm also happy to be sleeping in my own bed again. And also not living out of a backpack anymore. I have seen and experienced so much beauty and kindness in the world and I have learnt to see beauty in everyday life, in all people. I believe every woman deserves a beautiful photograph of herself. You are enough now, just the way you are.

So since I've been back, I have been busy scheduling glamour and beauty portrait sessions and I'm so excited to share these gorgeous photographs of Nicole. I love shooting on location and using this amazing city as the backdrop for portrait sessions. I know how tight spaces are indoors and it's not always possible to shoot inside. So why not take advantage of this vibrant city we live in? Our entire session from this shoot was shot in Sai Ying Pun - an up and coming neighborhood, in all natural light (best light)!

Kelly

Kelly, Saphia and I have been traveling side by side, backpacking around the world for the past six months. So far, we have traveled thru Mongolia, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. Today marks the beginning of our seventh month of travels, which is also the day we fly up to the United States from Colombia. We had some down time during our stay in Cartagena this past week and we decided it's time for a Kelly to have her photoshoot with me! Her fabulous makeup and hair were done by the amazing Saphia Najafee.

Enjoy these gorgeous photographs of Kelly:

Jenny

Jenny is a multi-talented friend who is also a brilliant producer of theatre shows here in Hong Kong. Jenny and I met backstage a few years ago in one of the shows we were both involved in. I was so excited when Jenny asked me to photograph her portrait. I loved seeing her transformation from backstage to being front and center under the spotlight. Her fabulousness and joyful spirit are practically pouring out of these photographs.

I proudly share a few of our favorites from her session below.

Rina

Elegance. Delicate. Radiance. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Rina. We had so much fun planning her photoshoot and had even more fun during the shoot. We had planned for an outdoor session in Tsuen Wan but the weather decided to send in a thunderstorm that day so we made a change of plans and turned her apartment into a studio for the day! We shot some in her apartment and some in the lobby of her apartment complex. You would be surprised to see that the images shot inside her bedroom looked like they were shot in a studio. I'm a big believer in hacking to "make it work" à la Tim Gunn. No bad weather or location will get in our way towards an amazing portrait session!

And now, I am delighted to present to you some of the images we absolutely love from Rina's session.

Yoga Portrait with Carly

While I'm working on carving out a little space for a home studio, I'm still loving (and will forever love) photographing portraits outdoor, in natural light. There are so many unexpected places that would make for a perfect backdrop. Turn a left here, go around the corner there, and even down that little alleyway between the industrial buildings. This is one of the reasons why I love shooting out and about in Hong Kong.

For Carly's portrait session, we originally planned to shoot on the beach. However, plans changed and we decided we would head up to The Peak instead. The beach would have been great but the shoot on The Peak turned out amazing. Carly has recently become a certified yoga instructor so I designed her session to be filled with all her favorite poses. She was so great about being in the moment and in this series, she truly is in one with nature.
