Author

I write articles for the pure pleasure of sharing knowledge.  I love to teach.  I love to write.  I love to shoot.  And writing articles for Digital Photography School (DPS) felt like an extension of blogging.

This week, I was added to DPS’ Authors page.  It may not sound like much, but I am so excited about it!

Now, I have my own page on DPS where you can find all my articles in one place.  You even get to see my very old (and pale — haha) mugshot instead of a DPS logo on all my articles.

[These are all screen grabs of the top section of the pages.  To see the full list of authors or full list of my articles, click on the image.]

Being called an author makes things feel official after writing for so many years.   :)

And get this:  two of my articles were shared over 6000 times!  WHAT?!!  That’s just crazy.

I don’t want to be sappy and all, but… THANK YOU to everyone who reads my stuff.  That is all.  xoxo

Published on Glamour and Grace

My “Day After” shoot was published today on Glamour and Grace magazineAlright, I’m going to do another jump kick because I’m so excited.  Wait for it…. wait for it….. I need a running start.  KEEEEEYAAAAH!  Wow, did you see that?  It was a good one!  :)

Published in Brides Magazine

Wow.  What a privilege to have my work featured on BRIDES magazine!  BRIDES is one of the World’s largest bridal inspiration destinations.  *goosebumps*

My favorite passage in the feature: 

Angela had two goals: to stick with decor so timeless, she wouldn’t cringe when she flipped through her wedding album decades later, and to incorporate elements both of her Chinese-American heritage and Jacob’s Dutch roots. Throw in some genius desserts and a string trio, and you’ve got one of the sweetest weddings we’ve seen all year.

Alright alright.  If you twist my arm, this is my second favorite part:   :)

Angela’s advice to future brides? “Find a photographer you absolutely adore and trust. We gushed over the photos of Annie Tao, our photographer, for five years before I even got engaged!”

Published on Beloved Darling

A darling family is featured today on an inspirational publication, Beloved Darling.  It’s perfectly titled, right?!!  Oh, I am so happy!!!

Don’t miss Millo’s interview at the bottom.

Published in Photography Awesomesauce

Photography Awesomesauce is a website dedicated to photographers who want to continue learning the craft.

I am honored that they chose my Mount Diablo Lifestyle Family shoot to be published in this month’s “Inspiration Dose” to other photographers!  W.O.W.

It is also refreshing to see these photos again because I took them just before the large wildfire that destroyed much of this amazing park.  Now, there is over 3,100 acres of ash!

 

Published on Denim + Grace

About to head on a field trip with one of my monkey’s class, but first, I had to share some more good news!

Denim + Grace just featured one of my recent shoots that I took at Coyote Point.  The editor at Denim + Grace probably fell in love with these little girls as instantly as I did!  :)

I didn’t pull the entire article because it’s long (YAY!) and would take a long time to load on your computer (BOO!  HISS!), so click here to see the entire article!

Published in The Pretty Blog

Appropriately named, The Pretty Blog is one of THE prettiest online magazines I’ve seen to date!  Have you seen it?  W.O.W.

To say that I am giddy with excitement (and secretly doing the happy dance) since seeing my work featured on their blog today is an understatement.  Someone pinch me.

Published: Golden Hour Hiking

I still bounce between feeling proud and excited with feeling embarrassed and humbled when my work is published.  I think this stems from my childhood because growing up in a traditional Asian family taught me that gloating is egotistical and bad.

Heck.  I’m not all that traditional.

YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!   ;)
