This journey inspired my love of photography not only as an art, but as an intimate way to tell a family’s story. As more and more people contacted me for baby photography, I had to make a website with a domain name to show samples and other information in one place. One evening, I watched a documentary on Humpback Whales and immediately connected with the intensely loving and sacrificial bond between the mother and calf. The mother whale migrate thousands of miles to a shallow and warm water to give birth and raise the young calf until it learns how to swim and breathe and grow strong enough to swim back to arctic ocean where there is food for them. She would starve while taking care of the baby because there is no food for the mom to eat in shallow warm water for fourteen months after the baby is born. She barely have just enough energy to go back home by the time they can swim home together..
The story of the Humpback Whale caught my heart. I instantly connected to the relationship between the mother and her calf. The story paralleled my life as my son received care and became healthier, stronger, and more independent. There is so much LOVE and GIVE in the story of Humpback Whales. I knew every mother would have done the same for her child.
I have chosen the name “Yellow Whale” for my photography because the color YELLOW (of passion fruit!) represents my passion for photography and WHALE represents mother's love. Yellowhale combined the important vision of the Humpback Whale bravely teaching her young the lessons of life so it too one day could forge a life filled with brilliance and strength. and I hoped to portray the love and connection among family through beautiful images.
The year 2017 is Yellowhwale's 13th year photographing babies, children, and families around the world. and I am so grateful for the opportunities I had to connect and celebrate the love and togetherness with all our friends. THANK YOU and I appreciate you and want to give back.
