Shanshan’s First Mother’s Day

Or, more accurately, Shanshan’s first Mother’s Day as a mother. She is wearing the same qípáo that she wore at our wedding celebration.

Uncle Leo is an an old-hand at family pictures by now, and decided to slip a little tongue into the shot. Cheeky, Uncle Leo, cheeky.

Chong Chong’s birthday is tomorrow, so I’ll forgo the usual “Chong Chong at months” post this month.

For today’s shoot, I decided to go with the Nikon D300 instead of the Lumix DMV-GX7. The first shot was with my 85 mm 1:1.8 D, and the second two were with my 50 mm 1:1.4 G. Ambient light only on the first two, with the third using the built-in flash.


  1. what a joy. happy mother’s day, shan shan. and happy 7th month birthday, chong chong. thanks for such a magnificent set of photographs, robert.
