” Inspired by love, light and beauty ”

Amelia's thoughts


Love

We are all on a path of discovery to experience life that makes us human. From the moment we are welcomed into this world, to teenage crushes and finding our soulmate, to giving birth; love weaves like a golden thread throughout as our reason for living.

I am convicted of the vulnerable and fleeting nature of time when it comes to the different chapters of love that seem to unfold and form our life stories. This is why I think I have been blessed with the gift to create tangible memories that will be timelessly treasured.

Light

I work primarily with soft natural lights as I love how the delicate nature of this light organically and effortlessly wraps my subjects, producing beautiful shapes, forms and colours that are soft and dreamy.

I work with mostly a medium format camera film (Contax 645). The real grain, the romantic sound of the shutter, the timeless colours, incredible skintones and the softness of it all resonates well with what I see and feel in my heart about the delicate and beauty of human relationships.

Beauty

I believe everyone is beautiful though we don’t always feel that way. I think I have been blessed with a gift to uncover beauty from whoever walked in front of my lens. I find tremendous joy in seeing the people I photograph smile and feel that they are seeing the best version of themselves.  It is not unusual for me to get emotional seeing their stories captured tangibly when I see the final product on paper. This gift I have is not mine but entrusted to me from God and I’d be priviledged to share it with you.

Lastly, I’d share it with you that I felt called to be part of the solution when it comes to the vulnerable children whom humanity has failed. We actively donate at least 10% of our income to this cause. At the moment our heart is for Aleppo and we give to World Vision and Save the Children. I hope to partner together with you to pave a way to give a chance for a happy childhood for these children.
