From California, to Paris, to Motherhood. This is my story.
It was one year ago today that I took the leap and officially launched Tiffany Chi Photography. I remember trying to decide on a name for this business. Originally, I was actually thinking “Evaline Reign Photography” (these are Aimee and Ellias’ middle names) because I thought it was a meaningful nod to why I am […]
May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. I’m sad to recall that growing up as an Asian American to immigrant parents, I often pushed back against my own culture and heritage: I was ashamed of everything that made me different. My parents insisted that we speak Chinese at home, and learn Mandarin after English […]
I’ve been posting a lot of information from Jenny Wang’s page @asiansformentalhealth. Jenny has a wealth of knowledge about how and where to start healing from racial trauma and also spreads awareness about the often invisible AAPI experience. She’s amazing, and I highly recommend following her! I recommend watching her video discussing how Asian Americans […]
“One of the most tragic parts of being Asian American right now is that no one believed in the reality of our radicalized trauma until now. […] How do Asian Americans heal from a lifestime of hidden realities and unspoken trauma unrecognized by others?” Jenny Wang Clinical Psychologist@asiansformentalhealth I’m tired.

Are you listening now? Do you see us now? My first reaction was rage, then sadness, then the impulse to say something, and then, do you know my next impulse was? To not say anything. “Be quiet, Tiffany. Be agreeable. Likable. Don’t rock the boat. No one else is reacting, so maybe you shouldn’t. Don’t react. […]
Last month was the end of a chapter for me and Ellias, and I didn’t know how to process or talk about it until now. My last day breastfeeding Ellias was at 23.5 months. This image was taken a couple of weeks prior to our last days of nursing and unearths so many emotions in […]
Sometimes I catch myself being withholding of my love and praise for my children. I know it sounds kind of horrible. The truth is … it comes from a deeply ingrained and treacherous lie that if I offer too much love or praise that it will somehow inflate their egos to the point of making […]
Four months, a million trips to the hardware store, prying toddler fingers off of paint rollers and out of open cabinets, and here we are: almost all unpacked with the exception of a few open boxes of frames, and making this space our home — one fresh coat of paint and thoughtful detail at time. […]
