Need ideas for a fun family shoot? Whenever we photograph kids, we think of play! That is the language of children, and the results? Casual, candid images that are authentic and fun! So the next time you plan for a family photo shoot, think of how you can incorporate play into your session. Bring some props or think of an activity that your children enjoy. It’s ok that the images are imperfect with sweat marks, what’s important is the memories that you have just created together as a family.
This is our 3rd time photographing Mika and her daughter, Lanka, who is named after the beautiful orchid. We love the carefree images that represents the bond they share as mother and daughter. What precious memories these are! The best kind of family portraits are the ones where you are sharing a moment together, doing the everyday things you love, like taking a walk in the park, running with the dogs and smelling the flowers.
Nowadays, we have been getting more enquiries for family portraits at our studio compared to outdoor locations. I think most people find it challenging to convince large families to go to a park for a family portrait, especially if it includes a newborn baby and elderly parents! With the weather being unpredictable too with rain or haze, a studio photography session is the easiest option! Jeremy and Ariel are personal friends of mine, so it was really lovely meeting Ariel’s parents and her siblings. Thank you for coming by our studio! Continue Reading
Now that we have our own little convertible natural light + artificial light studio, I am really quite excited to do shoots here. It is definitely a challenge when you only have 4 walls to play with. Shooting in a studio gives you flexibility in the sense that it can be pouring outside but the shoot still carries on. It’s air-conditioned and comfortable. Tomorrow, I’ll be shooting my first boudoir studio shoot and I am looking forward to it!
Amanda and Ivan are no strangers to this blog… you might have seen her family photos here some time back. She’s a good friend of mine, and I was really pleased to do a portrait shoot for her. It’s been quite a while since I posted some maternity photos here. Incredibly, I know so many people who are pregnant this year and targeting to have a ‘dragon’ baby. So, in accordance to that theme, I’ll try to post a few more maternity shoots in this blog soon!
Amanda has since delivered a healthy and gorgeous baby girl that I have yet to meet. :) Congratulations to the both of you and enjoy parenthood!

As a follow up from Part 1 of Calvin & Audrey’s wedding… here are the portraits that we took after the wedding ceremony ended. I always encourage couples to set aside at least 45 minutes to an hour for these sort of portraits. After all that excitement, it’s always nice to get away from the crowd for a little while and spend some time together… with the photographer, of course! :)
