I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

before and after # 9 - my girl

as usual mouse-over the image to view the unedited one. please give a bit more time to download the other image.

my 7 year old daughter woke me up this morning, i asked her: "what's the problem?", and she answered: "Daddy, when are you gonna buy me a make-up kit?".

it struck me that my little girl is not a baby any more, i made this video 3 years ago knowing that this day will come.

she is the love of my life really, after 10 years of trying and virtually giving up to have a child, she decided to come into our lives and made us a family.

turn on your audio and enjoy!



What a beautiful film, and your daughter is such a sweet little girl :) Ps, thank you for your nice comment :)


she is abosolutely beautiful. the light shining on her is so soft and it says love, your love. the movie is priceless, so many good photos and that big smile of hers is gorgeous. photos are truly the pilot light of memories and this will light her memories in the future. truly a doll baby, 7 going on 20, watch out daddy for the boys that will soon flock to her.

Dave...This was such a touching video from start to finish, beautifully put together with love and adoration. You, your beautiful, and little Patricia Ysabelle make a lovely family portrait. The way you put the film together with it interesting screens was wonderful to watch. The photo of her at the beginninb of this post is heavenly , and I loved being able to put the mouse over it to see the original. I do not think I will ever forget this one. It touched my heart. g


Great lighting and a beautiful child. Enjoy them every day,they grow up fast.

I like what you did to the photo, definitely fills it with softness and mood. I know how you feel - it goes too fast (mine is six) and the love you have for them produces this ache that never lessens.


If she's the love of your life I bet she's going to have to wait for her make up. Wonderful, innocent, beautiful, dreamy, sweet shot.


Beautiful work Dave with the photo before and after:)/Maria
