The fear of being truly you

We all have a crippling fear of completely letting others see who we truly are at times, because we are afraid of judgement and labels. In today’s world where everyone is so digital, we all somehow have an online presence and its scary to know that what we put information out there that is free for masses and masses of people all over the … Read More The fear of being truly you

Doing your own engagement photos

     Ian and I recently did our engagement photos, and I decided it would be fun to do it ourselves vs a professional photographer. I know hiring someone would have probably yielded better quality photos but we both are very happy with the photos we got. Reasons I did this: 1. Engagement sessions are usually a good way to choose a wedding photographer and kind … Read More Doing your own engagement photos

Island girl

Today is my last full day in paradise AKA Kauai….. I want to cry just thinking about going back to Washington..dull and cold PNW, but all good things do come to an end.

Maxi skirt

On my recent shopping trip I scored this maxi on the sale rack from Charlotte Russe, it was the only maxi in size “small” and I had to get it! Back then when I was in high school, I remember maxi skirts and dresses being the “it”, but none of them would fit me because I was too short. I haven’t changed much in … Read More Maxi skirt

Le weekend

April is my birth month and we decided to celebrate early, no complains here :)..We had an amazing day in downtown Seattle, esp because “Comi-con” was going on at the convention center and the streets were packed with comic lovers dressed up as super heroes/comic characters. It was fun to people watch.

Time

 For visual readers (lol…jokes), the above are recent pictures taken with my DSLR….I am enjoying photography in spring because everything is so alive. The ferry is in a small cute historic neighborhood close to where I live and hopefully in future I’ll share more photos, the picture of me standing is me practicing focus points and manual shooting…I get so thrilled when I … Read More Time
