What is it like to see a plane land less than a mile away from where we stood?
Check out our recent collaboration with Air China & teaming up with Bay Tiger Video Productions, we got the opportunity to get in on some plane landing action and the water cannon inaugural ceremony for their San Jose to Shanghai airline launch.
I was in Hong Kong this Spring and I got a chance to visit my good friend Meiling who recently gave birth to a baby boy Eason and is now a happy and proud mama. In the Chinese tradition, mothers who just gave birth are recommended to stay indoor to recover, eat ginger-vinegar braised egg and pork 豬腳薑醋 for nourishment, which in my case I was unable to meet the parents and baby outdoor for a portrait shoot. Eventually I got to visit the family in their lovely apartment home and when it was time to bust out my camera I find baby Eason sleeping soundly. Without waking him up, I took few snapshots while he dozes off and then mama comes in and snuck a few props for enjoyment, hence I named the dolls "Eason's 5 Plushy Guardians". He eventually woke up and immediately fell back to sleep...this occurred THREE TIMES! "Baby the day is young! Let Uncle Wooolis take some photos of you smiling, crying and laughing," I said. He did not comply. Eventually Eason was being fed by papa and mama, after a quick burping session, food coma kicks in and back to sleep he went. Needless to say what you see in the gallery is why it's all sleepy photos of him. The next time I visit Baby Eason, I hope he can schedule his nap ahead of time so we can take some selfies together instead.

I got a chance to help Patricia & Lawrence do a maternity photoshoot. Patricia was about a little under 2 months due so we wanted to take the opportunity to take some stills before the baby arrives. Shot around a small townhouse neighborhood in my hometown, Hayward.
