Headshot Portraits at Hong Kong Park • Ayumi Suzuki

Ayumi wanted to take some new profile photos for social media such as LinkedIn and Facebook, and I’m so lucky she chose me as her photographer! Interestingly enough, she found me through my wedding photography guide on Sassy Hong Kong. Though this project wasn’t wedding-related, she liked my portfolio of outdoor portraits and natural photography style.

We met up in Admiralty to start off our photoshoot at Pacific Place. Although Ayumi intended to use her portraits for both personal and professional settings, she requested that the photos had a natural background. We spent some time at Hong Kong Park, where there was plenty of foliage to choose from. Towards the end of the hour, we went down the hill through the Cheung Kong Park and finished the portrait session at Chater Garden in Central.

Fashion & Food Photoshoot with Little Laws • PMQ 元創方

I know I’ve been all about PMQ lately; my last blog post was about the Hermès exhibition there… but what really is this place with the mystical acronym? I went to find out more with London fashion and lifestyle blogger Little Laws.

PMQ stands for “Police Married Quarters”, as it used to house married police officers in the 1950s until 2000. After being left empty for a few years, the site reopened earlier this year as a new hub for creatives. The main structure and look of the apartment buildings were preserved, including the turquoise and white color scheme. I know that the location of PMQ makes the land a piece of prime real estate, and I’m glad that the non-profit organization behind it is giving priority for local brands and artists to establish themselves there.

We started off our visit with lunch at Isono Eatery & Bar, a restaurant serving dishes from Spain, Italy and France and has a glamorous industrial look to its interiors. We split a set menu of 2 starters, 1 main and a dessert and also started with a platter of Iberico Ham, Lomito and Salami. Yay for sharing! Also pictured here is the beef tartare with a Japanese egg yolk and truffle mayonnaise… so rich and delectable.

Maternity Portraits • Serena & Ian • San Francisco

This maternity portrait session was photographed back in May, and now Serena and Ian have an adorable baby boy! I can’t wait to meet their little guy, but first I’d love to share their sweet maternity photos.

I’ve known Serena for quite a few years, since the time I worked in a lab and before I became a photographer. She and Ian have an amazing, positive outlook towards life and people, and it’s hard not to love hanging out with them. This photoshoot was no exception.

We started off at Dolores Park, near where they lived in the Mission District in San Francisco. I always encourage my portrait clients to pick a location that has an emotional significance, and to Serena and Ian, Dolores Park was their stomping ground. It also provided a stunning view of the San Francisco skyline!

It was Serena’s brilliant idea of tying a blue ribbon around her pregnant belly as a prop for the maternity photos. What a great present they were bringing to this world!
