Photographer Fish Quan derives much pleasure in photographing newborns due to her natural fondness for babies, and her self-professed high level of patience. Her keen eye allows her to create soft, natural images for precious bubs, partly also due to her mastery as a make-up artist over the past eight years. Her interest in photography started out as a hobby where she tried her hand at outdoor photography before setting up her own studio in 2015. Today, she prefers to shoot indoors. Along with newborns and children, Fish also provides photography services for maternity, graduation, cake smashing as well as event photography such as birthdays and weddings.
