From California, to Paris, to Motherhood. This is my story.
Tiffany Chi Photography | Fine Art Natural Light Maternity, Baby, Birth, Newborn Photographer Orange County, California “I don’t want to grow up, mommy,” she whispered, breathlessly choking back the tears that came like torrential waves. I found her sitting on the stairs, back hunched, her entire little face buried in her shaking hands. Beside her […]
We found each other.8 billion people in the world.2.161 million in Paris, alone. It scares me to think of any other reality existing — one where we miss one another. Maybe it doesn’t rain that day, or maybe instead of staying, I decided to get on a plane, or return to my other job, or […]
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.

Last week was heavy, and […]
“As the Asian American community continues to encourage each other to SPEAK UP, take up SPACE, and become VISIBLE, we also need to remember that these actions take immense courage and are costly. We need to be prepared to defend, protect, and support each other in these brave acts or we run the risk of […]
I have not been able to stop crying. My heart is shredded. I realize that what I am about to share isn’t filtered, and probably won’t even be mindfully articulated. I’m just sharing what I feel. These women were somebody’s daughters, and perhaps mothers and sisters. Now, dead, because of a white man’s “bad day.” […]
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 […]
