I feel his breath begin a steady cadence on my chest: in, out, in, out. Do I dare? I slowly lift my body out of the rocking chair, one muscle at a time. Tiptoeing to the edge of the crib, his body senses this familiar dance. In the darkened room, I see his eyes open […]

Mommy and Me Baby Photoshoot on the Beach


Oh friends… Today was a hard one. I try to keep my head above water but some days, like today, I just feel like I never breach the surface. Today, I am a stone sinking in an endless pool of leaky sippy cups and tears. We are on day one million (not an exaggeration) of […]

Hey Mama, Real Talk …


Confession: 98.9% of the time, I have no idea what I’m doing. Sometimes people will browse through these pretty photographs or read the curated captions, take a look at our family and think, “Wow, they’ve really got it together.  They have the two kids, the dog, the house, and they’re livin’ it up in sunny, […]

Shoutout LA Featured Photographer


There was an old antique Parisian bookstore in the Quartier Latin that I passed by every morning and every evening when I used to live there. The store was probably only large enough to place a door, and then the remaining space was just books stacked high to the ceiling. The books were haphazardly stacked […]

Tiffany Chi Photography, Paris


Reflecting today about how this was the view I woke up to every morning 7 years ago, to date. I took this photograph from my window just before dawn — when the city was still fast asleep, and the sunlight peeked through rippled clouds. I remember hearing the sound of the bell tolls from the […]

Memories from Paris


Dear Aimee, Five. When did you grow up? I’ll look through photographs of when you fit in my arms and wonder where all the time went. I remember when you struggled to communicate your needs, and now you regale me of tales that you invented in your dreams. My sweet daughter . . . in […]

My Breastfeeding Journey, part ii

Baby Breastfeeding
Baby Nursing Tiffany Chi Photography


In honor of World Breastfeeding Awareness Week, I thought I’d share my personal breastfeeding journey with you.
