Picnic Themed 1st Birthday Portraits: Zun Ee

Cel wanted to take some portraits within the compound of her residence and we absolutely loved the idea of having a picnic in your own backyard! Because we have all sorts of different props in our studio, we lugged it all to her place and set up the location for the shoot. Set ups like these are possible because of our prior discussions and pre-planning! Usually, clients will try to personalise the props a little more with some items from their home, which is great! After the kids got a little flustered from the heat, we went into the home for more photos. Would you like a picnic themed portrait shoot? Let’s discuss!

Pre-Wedding in Krabi, Thailand

If you love the beach, I would totally recommend heading to Krabi, Thailand for a pre-wedding, anniversary or even a family portrait session! Recently, we were invited by Tourism Thailand and Weddings Malaysia on a familiarisation trip to Krabi. There were 5 of us – a few photographers, a videographer and a wedding planner. We were brought around to many beautiful resorts and met the sales people at these hotels. Some of these venues were just perfect for a wedding ceremony. In fact, with reasonable air fares, heading to Krabi on a 1.5 hour flight for a photo session is not only easily accessible but it is affordable.

This was my 3rd time on a photo session in Krabi, Thailand. If you are interested in our current promotion (rates start from RM5,500 not inclusive of flights & accommodation costs), contact us so that we can bring you around in the land of Amazing Smiles! Let us arrange all the details for the trip. We will also be happy to take you along for a post-shoot massage. Contact us to find out specific promo details.

These photos were taken around Hong Island and The ShellSea Krabi.

Female Standing Poses: Tips & Tricks

There are many ways to pose a person so that they will look good in front of the camera. Naturally, our clients are not models, and they rely on us as the photographers to guide them on how to stand. Watch our video for some basic tips on female standing poses and see how your images can be much better by just applying some of these simple principles!

Female Standing Poses: Basic Tips & Tricks

  1.  Stand at a 45 degree angle to the camera to give some shape to your body. If our body faces the camera directly, the shoulders appear square and the entire body looks wider.
  2. Bend your arms and knees to create shape. The female body is full of curves, even if you are plus sized! Arms that lie flat against the body look squished and makes it look even bigger than it actually is. So, go ahead and bend any limbs that can be bent!
  3. Push your hips to one side of the other. If you are standing at a 45 degree angle, one leg will be forward. Put your weight on your back leg and push your butt and hips to the back so that it will make your hips look smaller.

Go ahead and get beautiful images of yourself!

Magnus’ 1st Messy Birthday Party


Magnus’ 1st birthday party was a blast! Sharon and Paul’s little guests were treated a day of messy play with lots of opportunities for the children to get down and dirty! Everything was carefully thought through! We especially love the edible paint section, where the kids can just get totally messy, eat the paint if they wanted to without getting a tummy ache. We love all the different stations that were prepared for the children – from the mini pool to the animal farm! Parties like these are as much of fun for the kids as it is for the adults!

Make-A-Wish Trip to A Famosa Water Theme Park

In March & April 2019, we raised funds for Make-A-Wish, whose mission is to create life changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. As the result of this fund raising, we managed to sponsor Ammar’s wish to go to a water park with his family. Ammar, 11 has acute lymphoblastic leukemia since 2017 and travels from Port Dickson to HUKM Cheras twice a month for his treatment. The doctors in public hospitals usually work with Make-A-Wish to identify families whose children are critically ill and come from a lower income group as part of the wish-fulfilment criteria.

A few of us from the Stories team managed to head over to A Famosa Water Theme Park to meet the family. Ammar’s dad is the sole bread winner of the family with 6 children (1 was away studying), and the last time he came to A Famosa Water Park was during his honeymoon! There were 3 volunteers from Make-A-Wish who made the whole event go so smoothly. We presented gifts from Make-A-Wish to the family and had a good chat getting to know them. After a day of fun in the sun, we headed to Malacca town (Grace’s hometown!) to walk down Jonker Street and eat delicious food!

We’re glad to be part of such a meaningful event with Make-A-Wish.
