Family Portraits at Home: Azli & Yasmeen

Raya, but make it last! It’s so nice to hear how people talk about their family. Yasmeen was so full of respect and love when she described her husband and her children to us:

“As a businessman, my husband upholds his own standards, especially when it comes to the family. He always gives his best to accommodate me and our kids. I’m a working professional too and we are always supportive of each other and motivate each other as well. Our kids Aisyah and Isa do everything together and Aisyah loves her brother dearly. We wanted these photos to capture this happiness, love, and joy in our home and we LOVE all the pictures! Just can’t move on!”

Every time we do photo sessions like this, its so much more than just making people look good for the camera. We’re capturing someone’s real-life moments, real feelings and emotions. Things like that can never be staged. Thank you for trusting us Yasmeen!

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: Roy & Pek Yee

Seven years ago, we photographed Roy and Pek Yee’s wedding in Kuala Lumpur. The couple had met in Shanghai and settled there as newlyweds. Early this year, when they were back for Chinese New Year, we got to photograph them again and this time – with an additional family member! Leah is the cutest little lady you ever did meet. We did a series of casual “at home” portraits at St Regis Residences (their “home” for the holiday) and Pek Yee’s sister joined in as well.

These kind of casual family shots are some of our favourites. Most of the time, its just us capturing all the little real moments that happen between husband and wife, mother and child, father and child, or other family members. You look at the photos and remember how soft your child’s skin feels against your cheek, how her hair curls perfectly at the ends, and how her trusting little eyes dance when they look into yours. You remember how beautiful your wife looks when she’s cuddling the children, or how incredibly happy you felt being held in your husband’s arms. These photos are like time capsules of memories and feelings that only you have the privilege of fully enjoying, and we absolutely love capturing them for you. More photos below!

Studio Family Portraits: Darrel & Andrea


Darrel and Andrea work in Singapore while their son, Julien lives with his grandparents in Kuala Lumpur. They come back to KL every weekend to spend time with him. “We take Julien out as much as possible to expose him to the outside world,” Andrea told us.

The day they came to our studio for photos was to celebrate Julien’s first birthday. Kids grow up so quickly, and this was a great way to remember everything about him at this age. His laughter, his small hands and feet, and how comforting it feels to hold him in their arms.


Weekends like this are really precious for them. “It’s always hard to say goodbye when we return to Singapore. We’ll bring him to Singapore when he’s slightly older,” Andrea says.

Meeting Darrel, Andrea, and little Julien reminds us how a photographer’s job is never just about taking pretty photos. It’s about bringing meaning to people’s lives and supporting them on the journey with their loved ones. Thank you for giving us this privilege. More photos below!

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:
