I am Dannie. Originally from China, I arrived in New Zealand in 2002. I then studied, fell in love, got married, studied more, and taught some gorgeous children. Now I am a wife, a mother of 2 boys, a teacher, a photo taker, a sometime graphic designer, a coffee drinker, a home lover, a well-being believer, and really a multi-passion dreamer in general.

**UPDATE** I have recently relocated to the Gold Coast, Australia, hence won't be able to take on any NZ clients unless it is a wedding. If ever come to the Goldie, I'd love to meet and do some capture for you.

Things that I love - including but are not limited to - coffee, house plant, neutral colors, decorating, fashion, architecture, mid-century furniture, inspirational projects, kind people, the smell after rain, self-care, white, vintage, staying in, feijoa, crafting, art, watching my husband playing with the kids, watching the boys play, new places, self-growth, new experiences!

I love light-filled, subtle, and relaxed images, but sometimes, I dig those moody shots too. My editing varies depending on the setting, the mood, and the vibe you bring to your photos. So everything is personalised. There is no one filter for everything business here. I have a small client wardrobe for my maternity clients and babies. During a session, I will be guiding you into some light poses, while most of the time we will be taking an easy walk, playing some games, and having a good laugh. I love seeing my clients bring out their genuine personalities during a shoot. For me, the in-between moments are usually where the magic takes place.

If you have any questions, needs, or inquiries, I am only an email away.








Life is always busy but nothing is ordinary.
