Ways to personalise your wedding bands

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Rings and Bands, a concept store based in the elite neighbourhood of Valencia. Li Dong, the owner of this exclusive wedding ring fine jewellery store, shared some of her experience in the jewellery business. The rings were just exquisite – you could choose from rings made of platinum or gold, or even rhodium. You can also custom design your own rings at the store, overlooking golfers on the lawn next door.

I was also excited to hear about some interesting ways you can personalise your wedding bands, other than just engraving your name. You can sign your promise, inscribe your love story, write a personal note on the surface of the rings… and wait for this… even put your fingerprint on it!

What a great idea! Not only is it totally unique, you can even use it as a security feature if your wedding band ever got stolen! Just compare fingerprints and you’re done. :) Obviously, the band is not really able to fit your entire fingerprint, but just a small portion of it.

I was also invited to give a short talk to some of the residents at Valencia about the art of people photography. It was nice to be able to collaborate in such a manner. Do visit their concept store or check out their website to see their collection of finest engagement rings and wedding bands.

Twins and a Cake Smashing Session

Collin and Casper are twins who are as different as night is from day. Collin is very attentive, loves games, looks pretty serious and more quiet compared to Casper. Casper, on the other hand, is so playful, he can’t keep still for a few seconds! He has a cheeky smile and likes to act cute! But on the day of our shoot, the twins were just recovering from the flu bug. Despite that, I am glad that I managed to get cheeky shots of Collin and Casper. We started off the day at the Botanical Gardens (a little challenging with the hoards of people there and the humid Singaporean weather!). Then thankfully, we moved back into an air-conditioned environment at the suite of St Regis, Singapore. It was such a lovely place that we had to explore every corner, including the gigantic bath tub!

Lastly, we had an extremely successful cake smashing session for their birthday (the actual birthday cake was safe). It was my pleasure photographing my childhood friend, Patricia’s family. We have come a long way from playing with Barbie dolls in Malacca. May your beautiful family continue to grow!

Kyle’s Up and Away Adventure: 1st Birthday

It is in every mother’s heart that their children will grow up to be wonderful adults, living lives that are full, not just of happiness but one filled with purpose. I pray that as Kyle turns one (and celebrates many more years ahead!), he will be a man that loves God fiercely, has a soft heart towards people, is caring and responsible. I love you, my little munchkin!

Even though you will not be able to remember the celebration we had for your first birthday, these images will remind you in years to come that you are dearly loved by so many people. It will remind us how much you love balloons (which was the source of inspiration for this theme), and it will bring to mind that there is so much adventure waiting in life ahead of you.

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Family Portraits: Raymond, Lisa & Lucas

It’s always a joy to capture moments for families. I enjoy being a part of their day, even if it was for an hour. It gives me a glimpse into their lives and how much joy a little baby brings to a family. Indeed, children are a blessing from the Lord!

The first few months of your child’s life will fly by so quickly. First, you have a scrawny looking newborn baby, then a cute smiley infant, and slowly, a speedy Gonzales baby, and soon, a zippy toddler who just grabs at anything and runs after everything! I love seeing that transition. And a 1st year birthday is always a good occasion to celebrate the baby who has turned your world upside down.
