Large Family Portraits

Chinese New Year is coming up and that is the best time to get together for a large family portrait. We’ve done so many of these large groups in the past and absolutely love seeing multiple generations coming together for a common purpose. Recently, we also photographed a family of 4 generations where the great-grandparents were 97 and 100 years of age respectively! Now that’s a reason for celebration!

We especially love taking photos at the homes of our clients. This is really meaningful because there’s a lot of memories attached to these homes. Even though some of our clients complain about the houses being messy, that is fine! We’ll always find a corner to photograph. The mess can sometimes trigger a memory too. However, if your family home is in a town far away from KL, you can also do a portrait session in our studio. We have accommodated up to 26 adults in our space in the past!

Contact us for a portrait session for this Chinese New Year. You’ll never regret the effort you went through to make this session happen.

Post-Wedding Portraits: Azin & Kasra

Azin & Kasra are from Iran but have family living in Malaysia. The planning for their post-wedding portraits took place remotely over WhatsApp calls, with voice messages in English and also translated into Persian through their relative living here. We felt really happy to meet them, and to bring them around our beautiful city of Kuala Lumpur. Though language sometimes hindered communication, eventually, we had a successful shoot thanks to body and sign language! This can be quite tough when you are trying to get natural expressions from the couple, but I think the photos turned out well, thanks to Jennifer’s direction.

Family Portraits: Jeffrey & Juliet

Jeffrey and Juliet are from China, but their hearts are now in Malaysia, after falling in love with this country. They first moved to Malaysia in 2013, when their son was only 3 months old. In 2016, they moved to Brunei but couldn’t stop thinking about the apartment they rented when they were living in Malaysia. So in 2018, they decided to relocate back to that same apartment in Malaysia even though Jeffrey still works in Brunei. It was a place of special memories.

For Jeffrey’s 40th birthday, he decided to do something special by arranging for a family portrait session at their beloved home. I had the privilege of seeing snippets of their lives including meeting their very fascinating furless Sphinx cat named Luna. I am also amazed at how beautifully Austen plays the piano! It is truly inspiring.

So happy to get to know your family, Jeffrey and Juliet. May you continue to build long lasting memories in Malaysia.

Why we photograph families

Recently, we received the news that one of our client’s family members passed away one week after our photo session. It was shocking news as the grandma looked healthy and strong. We certainly cannot take life for granted. Incidents like these just reinforces the importance of our work. Family members are precious, and we work to capture meaningful relationships between parent and child, husband and wife, and grandparents with their grandchildren.

We also knew that this was baby Oliver’s first trip to Malaysia as his family lives in Canada. We are glad that we managed to get beautiful photos of Oliver with his great-grandmother for the very first and last time.

Our condolences to you and your family, Kathleen, Rachel & Jarrel. May your grandmother rest in peace.

Mother-Child Bond: Tun Shafiqah’s Portraits

Shafiqah &¬†Syahirah are sisters, and they came over to our studio for a photography session because firstly, they love taking photos, and secondly, they wanted to capture the bond between mother and child, especially at this really cute age. These little baby girls look so alike that you would think they are twins! And if you are wondering who the older children are, they are the babies’ cousins. Everyday is a good day for photos!
