“If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.”

– Lewis Hine

Hey there! I'm Yuan Xiu.

That bubbly one behind the photos you see on Not Pixelated. 

Photography is like storytelling; and rather than putting your stories into words, I tell them through my photographs.

INFP/J; An introvert, I'm never good with words. But once you get to know me I can be crazy, fun and sometimes I laugh a little too much. I'm a big foodie with a sweet tooth, especially for delish bakes (and gelato), with a cup of good tea. I adoreee high tea sessions, if you can relate! 

There's something magical about photographing people that attracts me to enjoy every moment. From shy sheepish smiles to the deep intense gazes you share, looking at these little intimate interactions always triggers a happy feeling in me. Very often I find myself enjoying these shared moments along with you.

Everyone has a different story to portray. Be crazy, be yourselves and I'm here to capture who you really are and your beautiful story.


I love to travel. If you also do, please bring me along!
