Pre-Wedding Session at Rawa Island Resort: Rick & Su Mei

Sometime in September we had the privilege of strolling around this idyllic island with Rick and Su Mei. It had been raining in the days leading to their pre-wedding shoot but the weather here turned out fantastic. We stayed at Rawa Island Resort which is a truly serene location. There were plenty of picturesque spots around the island for two lovers to get lost in each others arms, and for photographers and videographers like us to to go giddy with excitement behind the lens.

Fully determined to explore every nook and cranny, our expedition with them involved a little bit of climbing at one point just to get to THE scenic point. Okay, maybe it was more than just a little. It was such a hot day when we did that! With the sun beating down our backs, I had a heat stroke and felt quite faint. Thank God for Chi Yin who took over immediately to do some shots at the top of the hill. I am also amazed at how Su Mei could climb those steep steps with her large gown. These photos and the video you see are truly a team effort on all sides!

The adventurous couple initially wanted to go overseas for a pre-wedding shoot but decided to book us and do it locally just before the MCO happened. So it’s a blessing that they chose Rawa Island Resort instead. Even though we can only do “Cuti-cuti Malaysia” this year, there are many beautiful locations like this to be found within Malaysia itself.

Then in true holiday fashion, we wrapped up the end of our shoot with a massage, fresh coconut, and well-deserved cocktails by the beach!

Outdoor Family Portraits at Taman Rimba Kiara: Joe Yee & Wen Tjin

Taman Rimba Kiara is one of our favourite locations for outdoor photoshoots. It’s near our studio, there’s free parking, and good eateries around the area for families to head to after the shoot. Joe Yee and Wen Tjin wanted a photo shoot with the whole family since having their second child. Joe Yee’s mom and sister and her family joined too. We arrived at 8am to catch the best light and cool weather. They were such a wonderful family, and their boys were like little gentlemen! Everyone wanted a photo with the new baby cousin / sibling / nephew of course.

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.

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!

Fun Facts… About Chi Yin!

The amazing lady behind all our videos is now unveiled! She is quite a quiet person by nature, but she can really surprise you! When I first met Chi Yin a few years ago, she was already working in the video production industry, but was new to content creation. What amazed me was her drive to shoot and edit her own travel videos on her own accord. When I made the decision to hire Chi Yin, it wasn’t her skills that attracted me (she was still learning!) but it was this passion and initiative that made me feel she has what it takes to succeed.

Now, she is one awesome videographer and kick-ass editor! I am in love with all the stuff she comes up with. Watch this video and get to know the lady behind the lens.
