Charlene Lim is an experienced lifestyle photographer specializing in food and event photography. Her passion for food and life led her to styling and photographing beautiful images of food she cooks and shooting events to capture the moments worth celebrating.
I love creating and constantly thinking of new ways to light or position something to create the image I visualized in my head before shooting it. The process is really what gets me going as well as the joy that my images can bring to people!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have shot for events, portraits, product and lifestyle shoots. After every shoots, no matter what shoot it is, I like to take time to look at the B-sides (aka the images that aren't usually considered the "best") as there could always be something special in those shoots like a certain expression that someone makes that is not in any of the other prized photos or a moment that I didn't notice during the shoot but reveals itself as I look at these photos again. In many cases, these photos that would have been considered "bad" turn out to be the most special photos and I always make it a point present them alongside the good photos to give my customers all kinds of options.
