I am very excited as well as nervous to finally put together the “honeynhero photography” debut! There is something truly unique and powerful of photographing people and their families. I love it when I ignite the emotions and stories of a particular moment, a moment that never recur. I love it when people in front of my camera are having a lot fun. I love it in the second I clicks, everything is forever remembered.
When Alex told me that she would like me to photograph her parents during their visit here, aside from jumping up and down, I definitely felt the responsibility of owning a fancy camera now. What was that word? – “With great power comes with great responsibility.” Prior to our photo shoot, Alex and I talked about our worries of how we were able to take care of our parents when we are an ocean away from them. It suddenly made both of us a little sad because her parents would soon fly back and the time they will be able to spend so close to each other can be counted from now on. I am the only daughter of my parents and they are ocean away from me too so I can certainly relate. All we can do is to cherish every minute of it while we can and I am so grateful to be able to make some of the happiness and memories of those moments stay forever. The most lovely words Alex said to me, and I swear it was the most rewarding and heartfelt moment to me, was:”I think these are probably the best pictures my parents ever had in their life.” What a sweet and most loving daughter Alex is!
