Hey, ya'll! I am Tintin, a family, newborn and maternity
portrait photographer located in Virginia beach, VA.
Whether you're a brand new parent or someone who's been in the game for a few years (like me), one fact remains true: photographs of your children are so precious. Not just because they grow and change so fast, but because they are an heirloom that freezes those moments in time we’ll never get back.
Being a mother and seeing my own children grow has made me very passionate about photography. I can't help but want to capture all those little tiny toes, button noses, and sweet smiles! Photography is all about capturing emotions, personalities, and the dynamics of various relationships. And that’s what I strive to do with every image.
I got my first DSLR professional camera in 2008 and have been practicing and honing my craft since then. In 2021, I became an official licensed photographer. Since my studio's inception, I've placed an emphasis on studio portrait photography for family and children. Every single child or family that I photograph brings something new to the plate and inspires me in a different way. I always strive to get the best, most beautiful images. I'm kind of a perfectionist in that way. Always have been. Doing photography provides me with a creative outlet and time to destress.
Fun facts about me:
I’m a Christian but born in an atheist family.
I am a wife to an army veteran.
I have two children (and I think I am done!)
My full time job is a college professor.
I earned my doctoral degree in my 20s.
I originally came from China and I speak both Mandarin and Cantonese.
I am really good at singing karaoke.
My favorite food is Cantonese dim sum (any kind!!!).
Well, that's enough about me. I want to learn about you, now! I love text messages, phone calls, and emails. Let's chit chat and get to know each other! I'm only a smartphone away from you! Tell me what I can do for you.
