Time passes so quickly. It’s mid-August and I interviewed and photographed Ultra Rich Asian Girl Chelsea Jiang in March. Click Mathematician, Model & Mommy to view her pregnancy shoot.
 
Fast forward to June and Chelsea gave birth to her first child. With her son at the age of 3-months we decided to reconnect. I started our conversation by asking if motherhood was what she expected. While she’s grateful for every precious moment with her son she was quite honest with her responses.
 

  • Q1 – Is motherhood what you expected?
    CJ – No, it’s a lot harder and more emotional that I imagined. It’s a lot of tears and laughter.
    Its attention and care 24×7 and it’s the hardest job in the world.
    I’m within the first 100 days so my baby wakes up every two hour [night & day] for feedings.
    My baby won’t latch on so I have to bottle my milk every three hours.
  •  

  • Q2 – What happened to bring the tears?
    CJ – My baby was sick and I cried the entire day.
  •  

  • Q3 – What made you laugh/smile?
    CJ – Every day is something new. He’ll make a new noise or make a new face.
    He’s a serious baby and rarely smiles. So when he smiles it makes me smile.
  •  

  • Q4 – What’s the story behind your son’s name Charles?
    CJ – I picked the name because it’s elegant and full of [English] history. And both our names start with [the syllable] CH.
  •  

  • Q5 – Your nanny seems really good with Charles, what’s her name?
    CJ – Coco
  •  

  • Q6 – Are you able to meet-up with other moms with newborns?
    CJ – It’s hard because our babies are still so young. It’s a lot of work to go out.
    We’ll be ready to leave then the baby will need his diaper changed. It’s really hard to make plans.
  •  

  • Q7 – I noticed all your house guests are all aunts and nieces. Do you have any nephews?
    CJ – No, Charles is the first boy!
  •  

  • Q8 – You mentioned you’re an only child. Will Charles has a brother or sister?
    CJ – Yes, Charles will have a brother or sister in the future.

Sidewalk Shoot – My Friend Sahika

Today I enjoyed the thoughtful “touches” Sahika used to create her outfit. It was the perfect complement to the cherry blossoms in bloom: light and colorful. When we met her coral colored jeans caught my eye. She balanced it with a light tan trench coat and matching platform pumps. Her two toned purse matched both her coat and blouse. Her earrings fluttered with the slightest breeze. Then I realized the blue feathers of her earrings matched her blue fingernail polish. I also appreciated her minimalist approach for selecting one signature piece of jewelry (her ring). Her outfit also included a backpack which was hidden from view. She’s enrolled in an Event Management program. After we finished shooting she dashed off to assist her classmates with a group project.

Sidewalk Style – Week 6 With Kirsti

Kirsti’s shift just ended and she was on her way home when we met. I liked the plum and black fall colors. She was very comfortable in front of the camera but to my surprise she’s never modeled. Part way through our mini shoot it started to rain. I gave her my umbrella and shot while it sprinkled.

Dress: Designer from Calgary
Jacket: Danier Leather

Sidewalk Style – Week 32 With Simone

It was the end of a long day when I met Simone. She agreed to pose for several shots on the condition that I give her copies (for her mom). She had a playful yet confident personality that typically comes with having older brothers. In her case it is a technology sales career.
 
As we chatted we both agreed Vancouver was very casual in terms of dress but she actually like dressing-up as a form of protest. She also loves shopping at consignment stores and she proudly showed me the detail in the skirt she was wearing. As we exchanged business cards she shared a touching personal secret. I’m glad I could help.

Blouse: Jones of NY
Skirt: Zara Woman

Amy just purchased some pastries and was on her way to meet her girlfriend that just arrived in Vancouver. When I asked about her outfit she said she picked a bright color to match the weather. From a distance her skirt appeared as a solid color. However once we began chatting I could see a geometrical pattern which made me look twice.

Sahika (pronounced sha HE ka) is a true sweetheart. But when she arrived wearing a black leather jacket I was anxious to create a bad girl look. We headed to Mine & Yours boutique and found the perfect leather skirt. Sahika has performed on stage as an actress and dancer but she modeled for me as a favor. She’ll be attending an Event Management program in the Fall to supplement her bachelor’s degree. PS. Sahika doesn’t smoke. The cigarette was a prop for the shoot!

Celina Jade, My Sidewalk Shoot With…

Shopping With Shado
 
I recently had an opportunity to shoot with Celina Jade. My timing was perfect because two days after our shoot, the Arrow cast member was headed home to Hong Kong. On CTV Celina plays the martial arts character Shado. However today she wore two outfits that expressed her “Sidewalk” style.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Celina actually enjoys shopping and it’s been her experience that it’s difficult to find pieces when you’re looking for them. Yet, in an ironic way, the good pieces are available the moment you stop looking!
 
When it was time to warm-up and change outfits, we randomly stopped at the nearest coffee shop. That’s when I learned Celina loves Vancouver’s coffee.
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hi Celina!
 
Q- What are you wearing today?
A- In my first outfit I’m wearing a Balenciaga blouse and Zara pants with a Marni belt. My purse is from Valentino and my ankle boots are from Diane von Furstenberg. In my second outfit I’m wearing a Chanel jacket. My blouse and skirt are from Loft 82. My purse is from Kate Spade and my heels are from Yves Saint Laurent.
 
Q- When/where would you wear outfits 1 & 2?
A- The Balenciaga top and pants would be the perfect girls brunch/ day out shopping outfit. The skirt and Chanel jacket I would wear on a lunch date to get to know someone better… it’s a quick way to see what the other persons’ intentions are.
 
Q- How would you describe your personal style?
A- Big city chic
 
Q- Who’s your favorite style icon?
A- Kate Moss
 
Q- What shopping secrets would you like to share?
A- I love the bags and shoes… those are worth splurging on… especially comfy heels like the YSL ones [I wore in the shoot].
 
Q- If you were a super hero/villain, what super powers would you have?
A- Teleportation, so I can avoid all the long flights!
 
Q- What sound(s) do you most love to hear?
A- The sounds of the ocean. I grew up by the beach… so the sounds of the waves crashing onto the shore calms me.
 
Thanks Celina!

Photographer’s Notes:
Our time together passed quickly. It wasn’t long before we were saying goodbye and heading to our next appointments. Special thanks to Andrew Ooi of Echelon Talent Management for coordinating everything, Gienny Nguyen of THE Salon Beauty Bar for two fabulous hairstyles and the Coffee Bar for an impromptu photo set.
 
Since Gienny would be styling Celina’s hair on location she needed work quickly between outfit changes. To achieve the desired effect she thought ahead and came up with a simple plan. She curled Celina’s hair and let it dry. She created one fishtail braid and pinned it. Next she loosened the braid and pinned into an updo for the first look. When it came time for the second look, she simply let Celina’s hair down and everything fell into place. Five minutes later we were ready to resume shooting!
