It’s here! D.I.Y. Summer Sessions!

DIY Summer Sessions are something I try to do every year. This is the first year I am promoting and giving it a name.


It’s quite simple! You book your session! We pick a look. You go home, plan it out and rehearse. Day of photo session, you deck yourself out, style your hair, put on your bling, show up for your session, pose and we capture you for 30-60 minutes.


I designed this session for those who have difficulty affording a professional photographer for great photographs. This session eliminates large costs such as, studio time, styling, hairstylists and makeup artists. You can do it all on your own and let me capture what you created.

Photo of the Night: Took a stroll through high park.

Hopped on the bus and then the subway. Had to check out a new neighborhood. So much foot traffic. Even a warm atmosphere at night.

Be inspired by the Photographer not just their Photographs


Everytime I see footage of L. Kim walking around with his camera, he reminds me of myself. Which is partially because I can’t follow myself around with a camera and I’ve never followed another photographer around and just watched them work. But the other part is because he has my  perspective as an artist.

He is at the age of 21…when I was 21 I was forcing my artistic brain to think like a science nerd in university. So it’s great to see someone at his age, doing what he loves to do. I tend to drool over his equipment as well…and repeat how he talks about doing what you love. The importance of loving what you do and inspiring others to do the same.

I thought I would make a brief post of the photographer and instead of being inspired by the photos of a photographer, it is quite essential to find a photographer you can view as a person. And be inspired by them as an individual…as an enttity born from the mother art form of photography.

With that said, this is a .gif from L. Kim’s interview…

Q: What do photos mean to L?

A: ”First of all, if I speak most generally, they’re memories. The things I experience now, I leave them as memories. Originally I thought that way. Photos are leaving behind memories. I thought like that at first, but lately the thoughts that come to me are that even though they’re memories of course, while I take pictures, day by day, I think I see my confidence grow a bit… a day passes, a month passes, as [time] continues to pass by more and more, when I take pictures, I feel like I always become more “me.”
