Like many other photographer moms, I’m guilty of not taking enough pictures of my own children. Well, I do this for a legitimate reason – to be present in their childhood. Instead of wearing my camera and striving to find the best light and composition, I choose to sit back, snuggle, kiss, and giggle with my girls, while they’re still young and so attached to me! You know, in just a few years, they will be grown (begging me to take their senior photos!) and want more personal space. But now, I need to put away my camera and spend precious time with them.

But every once in awhile, I still invite them to my studio and pose for their milestones (especially for my toddler) and special moments (for my older one who is a ballet dance and has a new costume every year). This past year I’ve collected so many beautiful images of them, but these images have been sitting in my desktop hard drive while I’m busy ordering prints for my clients’ pictures. I keep thinking to myself, well, I should be doing the same for my family too! So I finally pressed my creative button and created this mix & match wall gallery, using different frames from my product line.

My house is seven years old already, but whenever we have friends visiting us, we still tour them around our house. You know what, they will always stop for a moment and enjoy our wall galleries. Even they’ve already seen these images on our Facebook, tangible memories are still so attractive. Needless to say, my girls also love to see their own pictures on the wall. They feel so special and treasured – what a great way to connect them to the precious past!

These modern style frames are available in different colors and moulding, and are great for creating unvarnished wall galleries. Free design service, as always. 🙂

Made in U.S.A. and ready to hang.

My desk is my happiest place. This is where I spend hours in front of the screen editing images, replying client emails, and writing blogs.

A Peek at My Workspace | Houston Newborn Photographer | Teresa Yiu Photography

The centerpiece of my desk is my 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina Display. I love its huge screen and stunning resolution. It’s the best and fastest tool for editing images.

To the left my file sort holds documents, books I’m currently reading (Jesus Calling by Sarah Young and The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer), and my Simplified Planner.

I love everything electronic and I use Google calendar to keep track of events. But once a week, I fill out appointments in my planner and write down to-do for the day. I love color-coding my planner using Le Pen 18 Color Pen Set.

As an introvert, this is a much needed place for me to recharge, through prayers, reading, and journaling.

Special gifts from my friends are also found here. This handcrafted wooden heart was a souvenir from Israel.

I try to keep this place personal and kids-free…well, most of the time! If I suddenly disappear in the house, my girls know they can definitely fine me here. 🙂

Custom photography is an investment, and I want my clients to get exactly what they want. During our pre-session consultation meeting, mom told me how she loved nude baby blissfully asleep. So I made sure I incorporated her “must-haves” in the planning process.

Well, it turned out that baby was awake and wanted to be fed 90% of the time during his session. He ended up staying at my studio for almost 6 hours straight, which is very rare (Newborn sessions usually last 2-4 hours only). Even the session wasn’t as smooth as we had anticipated, mom was surprised to receive a gallery full of gorgeous pictures featuring her precious baby blissfully asleep.

If there were one trait that every profession newborn photographer must have, I would say it’s patience. So rest assured, even though your baby does not cooperate or have an “off” day, I will still deliver images that are as polished and beautiful as those you’ve already seen, because all I want to hear from you when you see your gallery is, “These are perfect!”
