My final post of this year’s 52 Portrait project is here. A day late, but that’s okay. I’m sure you’d understand one’s need to sleep after staying up longer, having too much fun with friends and family, who gathered together in the last hours of 2014. Allow me to share some of the things I feel grateful for in the year 2014 (don’t worry, I have a lot of things I am grateful for, but I am only sharing the […]
Christmas eve in my house was a bit of chaos. Unlike most people in Australia, our family open our Christmas presents in Christmas eve. Right after mass, and after enjoying our precious time eating scrumptious dinner together as a family, then it was time for us to open our presents. In my head that worked perfectly.

30 Nov 2014. A cuddle in the early birthday morning, when you still smell like sleep, when teeth haven’t met brush&toothpaste, and when everyone was wearing what they were wearing the night before. It’s the best kind of birthday cuddles of all.

The sun was almost setting, though it still shone very brightly. These two weren’t even aware that I was following them with my lens. I love how the essence of […]
My big sister (in the photo) and my two lovely nieces (not in the photo) are in town for a short visit. It’s been too long, and we only have a week together until they have to fly back.

I’m sure you all will understand.
