Maternity & Family Photos at Home: Sebastian & Yan Lim

A maternity photoshoot is always exciting and special when you’re a new mother. If it’s your second child, the photoshoot could turn into a family session! For Sebastian and Yan, this maternity-family shoot was for their fourth child! Still as special, even more so because she says it will be their last.

We went to their home for this one and it was beautiful! Yan clearly has an eye for home styling. There were so many beautiful corners to photograph with! It was easy to photographer her and her husband. She’s a go-getter while he’s calm and a little more introverted. They make a good team, which is great because they work together professionally too.

Their three other kids, Isaac, Sophie, and Lucas joined us for the shoot as well. The coming of a fourth child will be a big change for Lucas as he will soon learn to be an older brother too. It’s a whole family affair!

Razin Turns One: Family Portraits with Afiq & Sabrina

Whenever we plan family photos sessions with parents of young children, we like to ask them to describe their child / children. Even at the age of one and younger, a child’s personality traits start to show here and there. It’s always so nice to hear parents marvel at their children even before their kids say their first words! Every little behaviour or quirk is to be appreciated.

Afiq and Sabrina described their son as a very observant baby who takes time to assess new people and his new surroundings. He LOVES animals… especially elephants, balls, shiny gold things, and playing peek-a-boo! So of course, we had to give Razin a birthday setup that would bring out his best smile and twinkly curious eyes. His parents brought along some of their own props and it all came together so nicely!

A Growing Family: Marek & Andrea

The last time the Zatlukals were at the studio, Stella was a wee little baby. The time before that, Eliska was a tiny toddler. How lovely it is to grow with this family through the years! They rock cosy¬† chequered prints and candid moments so well. As always, with young children, we start the photo session with a few warm up activities and candid shots. There’s plenty to choose from our toy corner, but we like to bring things out slowly. This keeps the experience exciting for young kids. Remember, even a 30-minute photoshoot can feel like forever in the eyes of a child!

Once everyone has gotten comfortable with the environment and our cameras, its time to move around the studio and try different family arrangements in the photos. Sometimes its a complete circus in there. Other times, more manageable. But at all times… we get the shots we need and the ones you love!

Check out the rest of their family portraits below and click here to Eliska when she was this tiny too.

Malay Engagement Ceremony: Arif & Li Ann

Arif and Li Ann are high school sweethearts who got engaged early this year. The ceremony was held at his house and it gathered their closest friends and family. It was a dreamy event, laced with the prettiest garden flowers and natural light. The atmosphere was warm and charming, kinda like a reunion of sorts. You could see just how comfortable they and their families were with each other.

Arif and Li Ann themselves couldn’t stop grinning at each other throughout the day. We were told they used used to purposely stay back after school just so they would have more time to spend together. And when they weren’t in school together, they exchanged plenty of calls… PRANK calls apparently!

Arif loves coffee and started his own coffee company here in KL after returning from the UK. Thanks to his passion, we were all treated to free flow coffee from Wolf & Turtle. Li Ann also has creative flair and works as a 3D animator for video games! She loves animals and the ocean and hopes to one day be a beach bum with her parrots and husband! We just love how fun and quirky this couple is.

Well, after a 10-year wait… we’re so happy to see them step into a new chapter of life together!

A Chinese New Year Themed Family Portrait: Phillip & Tze Tan

Phillip and Tze Yan came to our studio around Chinese New Year, mainly for portraits of their children and candid family moments. After speaking with them prior to the shoot, we all decided to also include a few CNY-themed photos too! The props were all provided by us, and boy did the kids have fun with them! Josie had a little too much perhaps – judging from her brother’s expressions in the third photo!

Onwards to family portraits. Our studio is designed for families with young kids. So whenever we have children around, photoshoots usually start with play time! Bubbles are always a hit with kids and warms them up to the camera and our photographers really quickly. Before we knew it, just the cutest family moments were happening right before our eyes. A few clicks later… and this was the result!

We look forward to capturing photos for more families this year. Feel free to suggest a fun theme and bring your outfits!
