Photography is a way I can truly feel my presence. My interest in photography dated back to my teenage years where I shot with a film camera borrowed from my uncle, and I was hooked. My first purchase was a Minolta, and I remember I was the only girl in the photography club I joined. I’m glad to find a lot more female photographers now making beautiful images, which was my inspiration to get back to photography after giving birth to 3 children. I especially enjoy shooting in Botanic gardens or in the forest, where I can engage all my senses and remind myself to enjoy the moment and choose to see the beauty wherever I am.
