Before photography, I was a chemist. I worked at GNF No Before photography, I was a chemist. I worked at GNF Novartis doing medicinal chemistry. Those days were full of many great memories and I enjoyed my time there doing chemistry. These days I am still in good contact with the people I met, and worked with. Soon after I had left, word had spread to Yefen, and she had become interested in getting a family portrait with her very young 1 year old daughter Amber. Of course, I was happy to oblige and Yifen and I started to contact each other.
These days with the advent of cheap digital SLR cameras, it has become difficult to find the best photograph. Amber is Yifen’s daughter, and she is one of the cutest and happiest babies I have had the chance to capture in still. However photographing children is a completely different story. Sometimes they’re unresponsive and unintuitive to the camera facing them. Sometimes they just want to play, and are difficult to approach strangers. I was up to the challenge, and utilizing in conjunction my very broken Mandarin Chinese and babytalk, I wanted to capture the happy relationship between the family and their child.
