Hey, I’m Jamie, outdoor-loving-coffee-drinking-plant-killing-Netflix-watching-dog-momming-introvert.
This is my little family. We love to hike, drink coffee, travel, drink coffee while travelling. Ty loves Whitespot (because they make good gluten-free burgers) and I love Ramen (but I can’t eat it when Ty’s around. Gluten and all.) We compromise and have sushi sometimes.
We have a tiny dog named Buhda and love to give her a new name every few months to keep life exciting for her. She tolerates us and we love her very much.
Born and raised in Singapore, have been living in Canada for close to 2 decades now and will take you up on a Poutine date any day. Ty teaches me what it means to be Canadian. Like how you shouldn’t slam on the gas if you’re stuck in the snow and how you shouldn’t push or touch others on a crammed Skytrain … eh?
I’ve been learning about my heritage over the last few years and have found out that 1. My grandfather was adopted (What!?) and 2. I have Thai Royalty in my blood, which means I’m a Thai princess (Or as Ty says, Ty’s Princess).
Life is an incredible gift filled with ups and downs. It’s not one straight path. It’s growing friendships over dinner. It’s going blueberry picking with your family. It’s making tough decisions and spending sick days on the couch. It’s the occasional fight, followed by forgiveness. It’s learning about where you came from, about the experiences of people around you and sharing a life with the ones you love. It’s being vulnerable and open to anything and everything that comes your way and being brave enough to take that step forward.
There aren’t many words that can describe my love for photography and some might say I might as well have a camera duct-taped to my hand. Having your photograph taken is very personal so I hope that you can relate to what you’ve read about me and that we can be friends. If you’re looking for someone you can share a beer with after a short hike, be goofy and silly with and take some amazing photos of you, you found her.
Your story is worth telling and I’d love to tell yours.
