OUR GARDEN

Story by Simon Yao Studio 15 de mayo de 2014

THIS GARDEN STATUE WAS MY INSPIRATION; THIS SLICE OF NATURE WAS MY BLANK CANVAS.

It all started with the idea of having a peaceful, quiet backyard to enjoy and to photograph clients. I recall staring at our dense backyard numerous times trying to figure out even where to begin. It was during one of my garden idea trips that I discovered this timeless-looking garden cherub statue, which I thought would make a perfect finishing touch to our garden. Ideas and visions started to flow soon afterwards…

Our European-inspired garden is now a permanent photography backdrop at Simon Yao Studio.

The garden features wrought iron gate and panels reclaimed from Cairo, planters, trellises, arches, topiaries, a rose collection and a lily pond. Sitting quietly in the heart of the backyard is the garden house, which is used as a green house and also for event gathering. Although the project took seven years of work and hundreds of plants, it was a labor of love that provides a wonderful palette for Simon’s work now and will continue to do so for the years to come. This private garden is available only to the clients of Simon Yao Studio and a few selected private events throughout the year.
