Newborn & Lifestyle Family Portraits: Calvin & Melissa


Melissa was still under confinement when we did this at-home newborn and family photos shoot for them. She and her husband Calvin were so nice, they let us pretty much have free reign of the house as shooting options! Their boys were so much fun to hang out with and spent a great deal of time showing us their room and their toys – as kids do. When the photos were delivered shortly after, she wrote us a review that totally made our day:

“I loved the whole experience! From enquiry with Wai Teng [the studio manager] to the warm video explanation with Grace the founder. We are very happy with the photographer Chi Yin and her assistant. Chi Yin was experienced with handling our newborn baby and they were well prepared with props!

We are not good with poses but all the photos turned out beautiful because they are natural and we were constantly assured during the photography session. I truly appreciate their tips on how to pose better and where to take pictures around our house as I was under confinement at the time. I know it’s not easy to take pictures with our newborn and two other cheeky boys aged 5 and 7 then.

The whole session turned out to be like a fun family activity with no pressure. We love the photos ! Thank you! Would definitely come back for family photos again.”

We are always so grateful that our job involves meeting wonderful people like them. We always strive to give our best. So hearing feedback like this helps us know we’re doing something right, and we never take it for granted.

Pre-Wedding Shoot at KLCC Park: Wee Chong & Eri

While most couples go through the proposal stage first, Wee Chong and Eri did things the other way around. They met as colleagues in 2012 and only fell in love in December 2018. From there, things started progressing smoothly and very quickly too! They met each other’s parents three months later, found a home together in June, and had their ROM the following month. Even though they both knew they were serious about being committed to each other for life, Wee Chong didn’t want to miss the opportunity to make it special for them, so he officially proposed to Eri in August.

They still had a customary wedding ceremony to do after that, so that’s when they asked us to do a series of pre-wedding photos. They met us at KLCC park, equipped with not one… but THREE different outfits for the shoot! It was a hot and sunny day and the park was huge. But somehow we managed to cover quite a bit of ground and capture these moments with plenty of laughter and spontaneity in-between. More photos below.

Rishvan’s 1st Birthday Party

On a sunny day in February, Prabagaran and Kawsalya threw a little party for their son’s first birthday right in their backyard. There was a kids pool complete with a slide and coloured balls for water play. They had their closest friends and family gather round. The birthday boy loves the “Wheels On The Bus” song and gets very excited about anything that goes in circles – whether its a steering wheel or a toy car. So the birthday was themed after busses – including the cake! The kids had a splashing great time and it was fun being able to capture their little expressions.

Portraits with the Extended Family: Alex & Wern Lu

A family portrait session is the perfect reason to gather the entire family in one place. After all, if you’re going to be taking photos of your family to print up and place around your household, you might as well invite the others to join in. Grandparents love having photos like these to cherish their kids and grandkids. Very often, the house can feel quite empty for them after everyone has grown up and moved out.

So here are two wonderful ways to include your extended family and the grandparents into your photoshoot – with some colour coordination.

Family Portraits: Roy & Pek Yee

Seven years ago, we photographed Roy and Pek Yee’s wedding in Kuala Lumpur. The couple had met in Shanghai and settled there as newlyweds. Early this year, when they were back for Chinese New Year, we got to photograph them again and this time – with an additional family member! Leah is the cutest little lady you ever did meet. We did a series of casual “at home” portraits at St Regis Residences (their “home” for the holiday) and Pek Yee’s sister joined in as well.

These kind of casual family shots are some of our favourites. Most of the time, its just us capturing all the little real moments that happen between husband and wife, mother and child, father and child, or other family members. You look at the photos and remember how soft your child’s skin feels against your cheek, how her hair curls perfectly at the ends, and how her trusting little eyes dance when they look into yours. You remember how beautiful your wife looks when she’s cuddling the children, or how incredibly happy you felt being held in your husband’s arms. These photos are like time capsules of memories and feelings that only you have the privilege of fully enjoying, and we absolutely love capturing them for you. More photos below!
