About me

Picture credit: Clare Barker-Wells

I am Chui - pronounced 'Chay', the smile behind the lens. I'm a family and newborn photographer based in Cheltenham in the heart of the Cotswolds.

I run my photography business whilst mummy-ing 2 lovely girls, who are the sunshine of my life and the reason that I picked up my camera. I prefer real people, natural smiles and genuine emotion - and that is what I prefer to photograph.

When my eldest was just over 1, she was in hospital for a short time, it was an experience that completely changed my outlook and made me realise how precious life truly is. That experience made me want to capture our real memories and our real emotions, to take photos that enable us remember how we felt at this time in our lives.

I adore capturing the love, connection and fun within families, and those precious fleeting lovely moments in between. In a world where we can take so many photos of our lives - the photos that make you feel something are the ones that you will treasure most. If you’d like this time in your lives remembered in this way, I would love to capture this for you.

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!
