Raya Family Portraits: The Nasimuddin Family

Over the past five years the Raya festive season means one thing for us – getting to photograph the Nasimuddin family! Just like last year, we did two photo shoots over two days. One for Datuk Wira SM Faisal Nasimuddin and his siblings which include Diana, SM Nasarudin and Marion Caunter, SM Faliq and Chryseis Tan, and another just for the family of Nadia Nasimuddin and Hamzah Alang Tan Sri Azman Shah.

It’s nice to have a yearly tradition like this because you get to document the growth of the children. When I told Marion that I still remember how Liam crawled away from our group photo years ago, she cracked up laughing because she remembered that moment too. Now he is so big! I think it’s the shared experience that makes a yearly photo shoot like this so special and wonderful. We get to journey alongside them. It is also nice to see new babies added to the family each year! As much as it is a joy for the family to have this tradition, it is special for us too. We’ll admit we also enjoy eating the best homemade rendang every Raya at their household! More photos below.

Family Portraits: Che Puan Sarimah Ibrahim and Tunku Jamie Nadzimuddin

A few months ago we had the pleasure of doing a family portrait session for Che Puan Sarimah Ibrahim and her husband Tunku Jamie Nadzimuddin, together with their daughter, Tunku Sofia. With different backgrounds to choose from and few outfit changes, we got to capture many casual and intimate moments that the family share in their lovely home and around the compound.

What is Lifestyle Photography?

Do a Google search for a ‘family photographer’ and chances are, you’ll see lifestyle photography as a service too (that’s what we offer as well). “What’s lifestyle photography?” you might wonder.  Well, this article will be addressing that. After this, you can add one more photography term to your vocabulary with confidence and clarity. Most importantly, you’ll know what it means for you!

A lifestyle photographer is someone who documents a person’s lifestyle by capturing photos of their real-life events, situations, or their milestones in an artistic manner. It celebrates the art of the everyday. Many photos you see of other families and couples having the best ‘candid’ moments captured while doing ‘everyday-looking-things’ are often categorised as lifestyle photography. A true lifestyle session is full of candid moments that happen when a photographer gets to follow their subjects to places that they frequently spend time at.

However, what really goes on behind the scenes is that there’s a highly skilled photographer directing all the shots! Many of these ‘candid moments’ don’t happen by themselves, and they may not always happen in places that are meaningful to the people in the photo. The reality is, its usually a photographer’s job to create opportunities for these moments to happen and quickly snap the photo whenever it does. Here are some examples:

A Mother & Daughter Portrait Session at Home

We often get requests for family portraits where everyone dresses up and comes to our studio or we go to their homes. But once in awhile, we also get requests like this one from Allison. She invited us over for an afternoon just to capture the everyday moments that she shares with her daughter. We love how casual and laid back this set turned out, with lots of love and affection between mother and daughter. It was a real treat to follow them around the house, just capturing them in their element as they bonded over their usual activities at home… cooking, lounging by the pool, taking walks in the garden, or catching up over a glass of wine. We even managed to squeeze in a pillow fight! It’s often the simple moments shared with family that we treasure the most, and they’re also the ones that fly by the quickest. We’re so glad to be able to immortalise a few of these precious moments for Allison.

Family Portraits: Janeen’s Graduation

Janeen recently graduated with a doctorate and wanted to commemorate her achievement with a family photo shoot. We had the photo session at her parents’ lovely garden in Bukit Jalil and had her nephews and in-laws join in too. We did two kinds of shots: a series with Janeen in her graduation gown and then a series of casual group shots and individual portraits. Janeen’s nephew also graduated – from kindergarten! So it was a double celebration. :)
