About me

Hello there, thank you for clicking here! I am Chui - pronounced 'Chay', the smile behind the lens. 

I'm mum to 2 lovely girls, who are the sunshine of my life, the driving force behind my everyday, and the sole cause of my journey to becoming a photographer. I find children and their different personalities absolutely captivating, and I adore capturing the love, connection and fun within families, and those precious fleeting lovely moments in between.

When my eldest was just over 1, she was in hospital for a short time, it was an experience that completely changed my approach to parenting and made me realise how precious life truly is. It's been a while now, but it made me want to capture our memories in images, because they really are growing at the speed of light, and it allows me to freeze time and soak every moment up as much as I can! 

Before children, I enjoyed a career as a graphic designer for 15 years, and spent a great deal of my time directing photo shoots and scouring for the perfectly balanced image from picture libraries. As a person, I prefer real people and natural smiles and genuine emotion - and that is what I prefer to photograph.

A few things about me:

  • I am an Essex girl, born and bred and love a good chin wag with pretty much anybody

  • If I wasn't Chinese, I'd definitely be blonde

  • I've flown the trapeze and adore magic tricks (I actually went to magic school one summer)

  • I love being by the sea, it's my happy place

Being a mother is my absolute priority, which is why I limit the amount of sessions I take each month. However, if you would like me to take some beautiful pictures of your family, please get in touch, I would love to meet you and capture timeless images of your family!
