A Chinese New Year Themed Family Portrait: Phillip & Tze Tan

Phillip and Tze Yan came to our studio around Chinese New Year, mainly for portraits of their children and candid family moments. After speaking with them prior to the shoot, we all decided to also include a few CNY-themed photos too! The props were all provided by us, and boy did the kids have fun with them! Josie had a little too much perhaps – judging from her brother’s expressions in the third photo!

Onwards to family portraits. Our studio is designed for families with young kids. So whenever we have children around, photoshoots usually start with play time! Bubbles are always a hit with kids and warms them up to the camera and our photographers really quickly. Before we knew it, just the cutest family moments were happening right before our eyes. A few clicks later… and this was the result!

We look forward to capturing photos for more families this year. Feel free to suggest a fun theme and bring your outfits!

Studio Family Portraits: Xeng Tjun & Chloe

We took photographs of this family knowing that Chloe’s mother was battling an illness. They wanted photos to make the most of every moment and to set up her photo wall at home too. It was so beautiful to see how resilient this family is. Despite difficult challenges they face behind the scenes, their love is strong… and their joy, so contagious.

It is moments like these that keep us doing what we do as photographers. This job is more than art. It’s more than a job. It’s a true privilege and honour to be the storyteller who captures life’s ever-fleeting moments for families like Chloe’s… and yours. After all, we only have one family and one life to live. Let’s make every moment with them count!

Family Portraits at Home: Wai Keong & Pauline

Before Anne flew off to study, her parents called for one last family portrait session at home. We took plenty of photos in all their favourite spaces around the house, and we caught some candid moments too.

With tight international travel restrictions now, summer break trips back home won’t be as frequent for students like Anne. These photographs will be all the more precious, filled with memories of when everyone could be together.

An Intimate Wedding: Felix & Serene

Witnessing couples like Felix and Serene get married despite all the uncertainty that a pandemic brings makes us so happy. The couple arranged everything to be done safely at their own home so it was a very intimate ceremony with only family members and closest friends – all masked up.

Felix’s parents live in Kota Kinabalu and just a week before, he wasn’t even sure if his parents could make it. Being the first child to get married would have been a milestone that his parents might have to miss. In the end, they managed to fly them in just in the nick of time. Phew!

His sister who was in Australia had to attend the wedding through a live-stream video that we set up. Thank God for technology though, it really brings people together in the moment. We could even her crying through the livestream video when the bride and groom were saying their vows. When the ceremony was over, they got a group photo with her through a iPad. A funny experience for all of them with lots of giggles in between.

This was a really special wedding for us to be a part of. Felix and Serene were also so thoughtful, they sent us a cake afterwards just to say thank you and wrote us this lovely message:

Sherlyn’s Birthday Bash at De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan

What better way to celebrate life than with good friends and a little bit of glamour? Okay, maybe a lot of glamour! This gorgeous setup was the result of a fantastic collaboration with our friends from SupaDupaCircus, I Heart Party, Ynghuey Cake Design, Magician Charls, and De.Wan 1958 – a restaurant and event space by none other than Chef Wan.

Elroy from SupaDupaCircus made a dazzling pair of gold balloon wings for the birthday lady, and everyone who arrived received a fancy racing headpiece for the party. The I Heart Party team did such a fantastic job with the décor that almost everywhere you looked became a great backdrop for fun photographs!

If you love throwing parties just like Sherlyn’s, we’re offering a package deal with this amazing team. Have a look at the photos below and get in touch with us to plan.
