This is my very first blog post, hooray! To be quite honest with you, being in the blogging world is like being at a party where you dont know anybody - I’ve come through the door, I grab a drink and I stand there feeling like a pony with five legs!

But I’m here to start conversation and make new friends! So I would like to start by introducing myself. My name is Merlina Lam and I live in Perth WA Australia. In my personal life, I have a partner, Steven, who is also my photography business partner and is the greatest friend in the world. My closest friends are those who understand me, care for me and always know how to make me smile! I like to surround myself with creative, bright and funny people as I love to stay inspired and love a good laugh!

I’ve always been an ‘arty’ person, I love to draw, design and create things crafty or digitally. I always knew that art would be a part of my life as a hobby or as a career. I was first aspired to be a graphic designer and then a fashion designer but after a few courses and researching, although I still love the idea of them, I couldn’t see myself doing those things. I then did my first year studying photography in 2012 and just knew this was for me. I have learnt so much in that year and am now able to use all that practice and information in my new business. 

In this blog, I will be posting about my photo shoots, the behind the scenes, my day to day life, and all things that inspire me. I will also be posting the images from each of my shoots too!

Hope you will enjoy following and reading this blog as much as I am going to enjoy writing and posting in it!
