Kyle’s Birthday Party at Carey Island’s Mangrove Swamp

This is by far the messiest outdoor kids party we’ve ever photographed… but probably the most fun too! We’re talking mud, paint, and a totally cool slippery soap slide! Alex and Grace decided to throw their son a 6th year old birthday he’ll remember for life. Kyle’s older sister, Krysta helped with the set up as the guests began to arrive for the picnic. After everyone had full bellies and nice clean photos… it was time for a gruelling hike through the mangrove forest.

Because this took place during monsoon season, kids had the experience of hiking through knee-high mud. It was a challenge, but they all made it through. After a refreshing dip in the pond, paint buckets, water guns, and soap suds were brought out. You could see how much the adults had missed this sorta thing too.

And did Kyle have a good time? He most certainly did!

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.

Planning a kid’s baking party


This year, my daughter turned 6. Every year, I tell myself to do something simple for her birthday, but it always ends up elaborate! I guess it’s too much fun trying to think of party themes especially since she is at such a cute, young age. Last year, I had a lot of fun planning a unicorn party for Krysta and a fire station party for Kyle. If you’d like to view those photos, click here.


Thank God I had the help of another mother this year. We planned a joint chef / baking party for Krysta and Sherisse who were born 2 days apart. If you’d like some tips on how to plan a baking party, here’s how we did it at a low cost: Continue Reading

Thoughts on Children’s Birthday Parties

Marc20140315_PATT_MORNING_004As a child, I remember begging my mom to hold birthday parties for me. Even at a young age, I knew parties were fun and the extroverted me just LOVED being around lots of people. To fulfil my requests, I recall the amount of preparation she put into making the party an awesome one for me- from cooking the food to preparing the gift packs and inviting friends and family. Now when I think about it, I really cannot thank my mom enough for making the little gathering a spectacular affair for the 9-year-old me.

Unfortunately, mom was so busy that she forgot to take a photo with me at the party.

Having shot a few kids’ birthday parties, I realise not much has changed. It’s easy to get caught up with coordinating the event and not enjoying it. I think what’s worst is when all your efforts in coordinating this event is not properly documented! Based on my experience as a photographer, I’d like to share a few points for you to help your photographers get the coverage you want.
