Maternity Portraits: Amy and Friends


It all began when Amy contacted us for her maternity shoot. We soon found out it involved not just one mummy, daddy, and toddler as well… but eight people in total! Amy and her girl friends were about to have almost the same due dates and they wanted to capture this moment in photos together with their husbands and toddlers. What an experience for them, and for us too! They brought two sets of matching outfits, a few tiny props, and it became this uniquely wonderful “friends-maternity-family” photo shoot!

Maternity Portraits: May Goh


We love doing maternity portraits because it’s one of the most significant moments in the life of a couple and family. It also challenges our creativity. We get new opportunities to put their excitement into visual representation through photographs.

May and her husband Gentry spent an hour at our studio for this shoot. We had a couple of props and furnishings set up against different backdrops. They brought two little pairs of shoes and onesies to symbolise the twins they were expecting in December 2019. They also brought a few other accessories and the ultrasound scans too of course.

If you’re expecting soon, our founder Grace (who has two kids!) recommends scheduling your maternity portraits around 6-7 months into your pregnancy. You would probably have the most energy in your second trimester compared to the end of your third trimester. It’s the best time to look radiant and fresh in your photos too, much like how May does in hers. Scroll on to see how they “packaged” their Christmas gifts!

Maternity Body Art: Ino

Pregnancy belly painting is a beautiful art form and we had the privilege of witnessing an artist creating her art on Ino’s beautiful belly. I do not know who created this idea in the first place, but we do love the final result! I think there’s so much to explore in this genre and would love to photograph more of these types of maternity portraits. Since we live in Malaysia, I think this can be done beautifully as a henna design too.

I hope you are inspired by this set to create your own maternity body art! If you have children of your own, here’s another idea for your belly art!

How to Style Your Family for a Photo Shoot

Family gatherings are a perfect opportunity for a photoshoot, whether its a birthday party or festive gathering. However, getting a great family photo sometimes requires a little more than just smiling at the camera. There’s some prep work involved and it’s called “styling”. You don’t have to be a professional fashion consultant to do this. In fact, it’s quite easy! Here are four ways to start having better looking photos with just a little bit of styling done right.


1. Consider your location and backdrop

If your photoshoot coincides with an event such as a birthday party or a dinner, think about how the location will look like: What colour will the wall or backdrop be where your group will be standing? Here’s a good rule of thumb you can follow: 

  • Plain background – You can wear either plain or bright colours, and outfits with more patterns. However not everyone should be wearing prints or else the patterns might clash, making overall photo look too messy. 
  • Busy background – It’s best to wear outfits with plain colours (no patterns) that complement the background. Eg. A green leafy background can go with full white outfits or white and khaki colours.
