I first met Ling in 2013 when she photographed my late syrian hamster, Cherimoya for a Christmas shoot. Ling captured Cherimoya so well on camera! This is the 4th studio shoot I have had for my dogs, Velvet and Cotton in the last decade with four different photographers. (1st for my cat, Chewy)
Ling has got to be the most patient and obliging of all. It is very important for Cotton to be able to like the photographer for the shoot to be a smooth one. Ling was very nice to have a meet-up session with us weeks before the shoot to get Cotton familiarized with both her and her assistant. Good thing that Cotton took to them immediately with them ”greeting” her according to my instructions and with tonnes of treats! Ling also has quite a variety of props for us to choose from to mix and match with our own.
Our photo session with 7 humans and 3 animals took around 5 hours! Despite being so tired, Ling still made sure I had all the different shots I wanted out of the shoot which was a first for me. With that day being Velvet’s actual Big 10th birthday and the shoot ending in the evening, Ling went the extra mile to edit a birthday shot of Velvet specially for me so I could post that pretty shot up before her Big Day ended!
With that, I have also booked a 2nd mini studio shoot with Ling for Velvet + her extremely special (and super late) birthday gift which will arrive in a few months time! I am so excited for the photo shoot already! Ling is definitely the best photographer so far for me and the animals!
