It's what I WANT, not what I NEED

...for now anyways :) I've been patiently waiting to buy the Canon G9 ever since I laid my eyes on it last year! A big and heavy DSLR camera is not always practical, especially when going on trips/vacations and a night out in town. I want an alternative so I don't have to lug around my Canon 5D, but still shoot in RAW format so I can manipulate and post process my photos. I cringe everytime I use my power shot SD400 when I'm carrying a point and shoot camera :( I rather not take pictures than to use that piece of junk, cuz I end up hating the picture quality anyway!

Here's what I WANT: Canon G9 with 12.1 MP and 6x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

Isn't this a beauty?

The next purchase I would LOVE to have is the Canon 580EX II with more power and light, in comparison to my Canon 430EX. Auggie Chang says one flash is not enough...tell that to my husband! -----PURCHASED!!!!!!-----


The lastolite umbrellabox, another addition I would like to add to my photography gear for studio lighting! -----PURCHASED!!!!!!-----


Girls, forget the designer handbags! This is where I spend all my money--CANON gear! By the way, my birthday is coming up in March :) *wink*

Baby Session: Calianne at 9 months

Meet Cambodian princess Calianne!

My apartment went through a tornado after this baby session was done! Toys and baby clothes were everywhere, furniture was moved in different places, my lamp fell over and shattered the light bulb, and worst of all...the hot shoe of my 430EX broke when my 5D fell off the chair! But in the end, I am very satisfied with the baby pictures that I took for my coworker and would do it all over again!

Save the Date: Robyn + Jon = Part II

Robyn and Jon's Save the Date magnets that I helped design :)

If you've been following my posts since I've been blogging, some of you may remember the engagement session that I shot last October with my good friends Robyn and Jon. The past weekend, we went on a 'couples' trip to Las Vegas and stayed at the beautiful J.W. Marriot Resort, where they will be pronounced husband and wife in 8 more months! The following photos are part II of their engagement session! Have a look :)

Colors + Textures = Vibrant + Fun!

I had a fun and relaxing weekend in Vegas! The first thing we heard when we arrived on Friday morning was how the Monte Carlo hotel was up in flames! Luckily, no one was injured or hurt, and the fire was put out by the time we got to the strip. Here are a few pictures that I took at The Mirage hotel, I love their new renovations and the vibrant colors and textures!

Marble Impressions Inc. - Innovative Stone Concepts

The past weekend, we set up a booth for our marble and granite business at the Cow Palace Home Show. The show ran from January 18-20th, and it kept us busy on our feet ALL day! The turnout was great, and we received a lot of interested customers! Here are a few pictures of our 10x10 space, and some sample products that we make!

Man's Best Friend = Ken + Caillou

Yesterday was a tiring day photographing Ken's pal, "Caillou". In the end, I think Caillou was more exhausted than us because we kept making him run back and forth so I could get the shots that I wanted :) It was an awesome day to go to Chrissy Fields for the dog shoot :) Taking pictures of pets isn't as easy as it looks, it takes a lot of patience because you can't get the pet to sit still and make them do things on demand, unlike human subjects! But I have to say, Caillou goes to doggy day camp and it's well worth it because he can play dead when he hears "bang! bang!" Now, enjoy the incredibly cute photos!

34 weeks pregnant + still growing!


The following pictures contain partial nudity, please take notice before proceeding!


Yesterday I did my first maternity session for my coworker Lisa, who's 34 weeks pregnant and looks absolutely stunning! Lisa's pregnancy weight is ALL BABY! She looks further along than one would expect because she's got a healthy sized belly! Lisa was a lot of fun to work with, mainly because she was so willing to do anything I asked of her! Kudos for Lisa who was pretty much nude during the 3 hours of shooting and she never even complained about being cold! Here are my favorite shots of the session, enjoy!

Please email me at if you are interested in a maternity session and would like more information and pricing :)
