Q:What camera do you use?

A: Most of the wedding photos were shot with a Nikon D300. My current set up is a Canon 7 with a 50mm and a 60mm macro and of course my iPhone 6. However, I’ve used everything from Nikon to Canon to Hasselblad to Leica to a point and shoot. I am a firm believer that the camera is not what makes a photo, the photographer does. Although it is certainly helpful to have some great lenses!

Q: What lenses do you recommend?

A: If you are shooting a wedding, I highly recommend having at least two bodies. One with a wide lens and one with a long lens. My favorites are 17-35 f2.8, 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 2.8 and the lens that I can not shoot a wedding without is a macro. This lens allows for all the beautiful detail shots.

Q: What is your full time job?

A: I would love to say blogging and event planning. But the truth is I work for a high end furniture gallery as a GM on most days. Other days I’m a housekeeper, chef, therapist, referee, and laundromat attendant.

Q: How do you balance work and motherhood?

A: I don’t. I have A LOT of support. Fortunately I have a great partner who picks up where I slack off. I also grew up in a very traditional Asian family where inter-generational households are common. My boys have a very close relationship with their grandparents and they are nearby whenever a crisis arises. Did I also mention I am one of six children? We also all live within five miles of each other.

Q: Where do you find inspiration for your topics?

A: My life. Although probably mundane to many people I love to document it through photography. I try to make all of life’s milestones as pretty and special as can be. So whether it be a day trip to the zoo or a special birthday, you can always find me behind the camera.

Q: Are you available for Event Planning and Photography

A: Yes and Yes! Please email me and I would love to chat!

  • Happy ❤️.
  • You learned to tie your shoes with only one hand. You learned to walk with only one leg. You learned to grow when your spine was fused. You learned to spread your wings when you were told you would be limited. And through all this I had to sit back and watch you, wanting to catch you. You taught me so much more than I taught you. And I’ll always continue to walk in your shadow as your support. Happy Birthday my baby boy. I am so proud of you. ❤️
  • Never underestimate the power of nature, conversation, laughter, and friendship. This weekend was the equivalent of 5 years of therapy.

  • Baked macaroni and cheese is a classic and it's even better with that crispy cheese crust right from the oven. #bakedmacaroniandcheese #macaroniandcheesebaked #macandcheese #bakedmacandcheese
