A Better Florist for Better Blooms

1 month ago

I do so love flowers, and I think it’s the perfect gift for girlfriends. There’s just something about giving something fresh and colourful that makes an occasion feel so lively. And let’s face it, you don’t really need an occasion to give a gift to someone close to your heart.   Unfortunately, I have a brown thumb and could never keep a plant alive, much[...]

mela.de.gypsie – The New Beginning

2 months ago

I’ve always had a hard time stepping away from being mela.de.gypsie. I created it one evening when I was 17 in an online forum for school, and it has stuck as an online handle on numerous platforms ever since. In my naïveté, it was as if I believed I became a superhero online. Since then I’ve used that for many online handles, finding it really[...]

All that Glistens this Christmas Season

4 years ago

    Just when you thought my period of giving thanks is over, I keep on finding lists of things to give thanks for. As they say, "It ain't over till the fat lady sings." And I've yet to hear crystal-shattering tones. There's something about the festive season that render me reflective, which is something I love and appreciate, because there are countless things to[...]

Hannah :: Kids’ Birthday Photography

Let's change the tone up a little in here and talk about babies. Yes, babies! I'm only just beginning to notice that they seem to be everywhere nowadays, or perhaps it's just a sign of my ovaries exploding.   Jokes aside, I have been honoured to be present at many of my clients', past and present, milestones of celebrating their children. It started out with[...]

Giving Thanks

4 years ago

So, it's Thanksgiving, huh?   Apart from all the stories I hear about turkey dinners, weeks of leftovers, and crazy black Friday sales, I have to admit I know nothing about this American holiday. That is, until I met Melissa, who is a part of our Basically team and she has lovingly inducted us into the traditions of Thanksgiving. Yes, along with all the food,[...]

Seeing that I lived in Perth for a good three years of my life and get occasionally nostalgic for the life down under, I was excited to be back for a stint and attending the wedding of one of my best buds, Chris and his fiance Char. I was even more excited to be able to shoot a quick pre-wedding the week before the big[...]

YJ+Rach :: Madmen, A Playground, and Love all Around

5 years ago

Yujin and Rachael were the type of couple who are both equally invested in their wedding, and dearly wanted to include their whole bridal party of groom's men and bridesmaids in all the fun. Therefore they thought that one way of doing it was to bring everyone together for a few photos that they can keep on their mantle in their living room for the[...]

Shaun + Wenai :: The Couch Potatoes Get Married

5 years ago

Wow! It has certainly been awhile. But I reappear with an image heavy post on the wedding of Shaun and Wenai. You might probably remember them from their engagement I shot earlier in the year, the one where we lugged a couch to various locations.   True to their personalities, their wedding had touches of all things to do with the movies. From their wedding[...]
