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!
This is the 4th year that we have photographed the Nasimuddin family during the Raya celebrations. It’s a wonderful way to see the family grow, especially the children who were so tiny 4 years ago and have now blossomed into cuter versions of themselves. Thank you for trusting us yet again! We love this annual tradition that you have and I hope more families will adopt the same tradition so that their family heritage of images will continue to grow through the years.
It’s a great idea to take family photos during festive seasons… the family is back together, everyone is in a good mood and the house is clean! We’re glad to have the opportunity to photograph Datuk Radzif’s family at their traditional wooden home in KL. It’s a beautiful house with a lot of character and memories. The best place to take your family photos!
We’re glad to have the opportunity to meet Elaine Daly, actress, TV host, former beauty queen and National director of Miss Universe Malaysia Organization together with her husband, Dr Nick Boden, who is an accomplished chiropractor, originally from South Africa. As a family, they were both warm and welcoming as the team headed over to their home for some family portraits. We were pleased to be acquainted with Eva and Mia, their adorable daughters. Not to mention, their lovely dog who happily sat there for some photos (though refused to be in the group shots).
Although it was a drizzly day, we managed to sneak some photos out in their backyard, making images in corners they said they hardly visited. Thank you for your being so accommodating and we hope you enjoyed the session as much as we did!
Nick and Elaine are supporting our fund raising campaign for Make-A-Wish Malaysia. We aim to raise a minimum of RM5,000 to donate towards critically ill children so that they have the courage to face the future.

It took me a while to decide whether I wanted to have a birthday party for myself to celebrate this huge milestone – reaching 40. I’ve been planning my kid’s birthday parties, so organizing one for myself seemed like another tiring task on the plate. In the end, I contacted Rachel of Pretty Little Things to assist with the decorations for the party and she did an amazing job setting everything up. Alex helped to source and sandpaper all the wooden pallets you see here. And I added stress to myself thinking about my guests and what I could do to make it really fun for everyone, yet filled with things that were meaningful to me. So this was what I came up with:
1. A 15 minute massage station for guests
2. A personalised photo frame with all my guests’ names calligraphed by a friend, Cherbreena
3. A photo corner where my dedicated photographer, Chi Yin, took photos of all my guests who walked in and then Abel printed it out and placed it in the personalised frame
4. A pre-loved book section for my guests to adopt some of my personal book collection for their reading pleasure
5. A corner where guests could choose an air plant or succulent to bring home as gifts
7. A soap making workshop corner, made possible by Esther & Elizabeth
Honestly, halfway through planning this party, I was wondering whether having a birthday party to celebrate yourself seems very narcissistic! I had to remind myself that it is ok to pamper yourself once in a while and to just enjoy the process. In the end, I truly had a blast on that day with all my precious friends. Seeing them happy made me truly happy too.
