I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Here are some essential facts about me that might make you go: hmm… what? …weird…ha ha…random…what a lovely girl. And in case you were wondering, it’s pronounced Na-vee Newm :)
  1. I love taking photos
  2. I wish I could get paid to travel
  3. I think #1 and #2 should be friends and become part of my life
  4. Creativity keeps me sane, my perfectionism drives me insane
  5. My favorite book is The Alchemist
  6. I always wear a watch but feel so free when I don’t
  7. Sushi, solitudes, sleep – a perfect day
  8. I think my parents are the epitome of hard working people
  9. I feel awkward infront of the camera unless it involves jumping
  10. I play guitar…sort of…I can play a lot of half songs!
  11. I wish I could live in jeans and a t-shirt
  12. My fastest time for completing the Rubiks cube is 1m 32 sec

Amarta + Nav | Toronto Centre Island Engagement

July 15th, 2014

I don’t think these two are cool because he pretty much has the same name as me or that his mom’s birthday is the same as my mom’s or that even though we were teaching in Korea at different times, any one of us can bring up a random memory about Korea and we’ll know exactly what the person […]

 

I don’t think these two are cool because he pretty much has the same name as me or that his mom’s birthday is the same as my mom’s or that even though we were teaching in Korea at different times, any one of us can bring up a random memory about Korea and we’ll know exactly what the person is talking about. No, these two are cool just because they were so much fun. Even though we only met last year to start planning their wedding, I feel like my conversations with Nav and Amarta resemble how I would converse with friends I’ve known for years. These guys are hilarious! I had such a fun time that afternoon. Something about chasing birds and ducks always makes me laugh. I know, I’m 5 years old. Whatever, it’s fun to run around with your arms flailing in the air and watch people do the same.

I cannot wait to see these two this weekend and celebrate their wedding! Happy wedding week Amarta & Nav!

Saturday Night Lounge | Momma Nhum

July 10th, 2014

Meet Momma. My parents have never really been into having their photos taken and aside from a few snap shots, I’ve never actually photographed them until a few weeks ago. So trying not to scare her, I jokingly asked my mother one day if she’d let me photograph her. While I expected a “Nooooo. Whyyyy. […]

 

Meet Momma. My parents have never really been into having their photos taken and aside from a few snap shots, I’ve never actually photographed them until a few weeks ago. So trying not to scare her, I jokingly asked my mother one day if she’d let me photograph her. While I expected a “Nooooo. Whyyyy. Noooo. Go take a picture of Cali and Gucci.” (Gucci’s the family dog :D ) I was pleasantly surprised when she happily agreed to do it. I was even more surprised at how comfortable and animated she got when she was in front of the camera. She’s so cute :) I should have known she was ready when she showed up with 4 outfit changes and made my dad do the same haha. So for that Saturday afternoon it was family photo time!

If you know my mother and our family, you’ll know that food and fam jams are what we do. I know everyone loves their mom’s cooking but I’m telling you, my mother’s cooking is ZEE BEST. When I lived at home, I’m pretty sure my friends didn’t come over to visit me, they came over for Momma Nhum’s meat sticks, egg rolls and dipping sauce. I’m not gonna lie, my cooking skills are a little lame compared to hers but I’m working on it! When my parents owned a restaurant I unfortunately spent all my time eating phở (Vietnamese noodle soup) and not watching how anything was made. Ha! Talk about awkward chubby years! Anyway, she’s a master in the kitchen and I’m pretty sure this was her first time picking up a cook book. She definitely has no idea who Betty Crocker is!

Saturday Night Lounge Photo Series

June 26th, 2014

Saturday Night Live, you either love it or hate it (depending on the season) but one thing’s for sure, the host and musical guest portrait are always fun to see.

Saturday Night Live, you either love it or hate it (depending on the season) but one thing’s for sure, the host and musical guest portrait are always fun to see. These bumper photos, as they’re called, have always been something I look forward to seeing each episode. Photographer Mary Ellen Matthews has been the SNL photographer since 1999 and it seems like she has a pretty sweet gig.  Some pretty badass work considering the constant tight deadline and the fact that she sometimes only has 20mins to shoot these things.

So, here is my ode to Saturday Night Live and Mary Ellen Matthews and the sweet photos that force you to sit through commercials. This is the first of the series and I’ll post more as I complete them. This is what I spend my Saturday nights working on now haha. My favourite seasons have to be between those with Will Ferrell, Cheri Oteri, Molly Shannon and the seasons with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph.

“Bobby B made me do it! Alright!”
