We are blown away by the city view from Nawal’s apartment in KL – the perfect spot to do a maternity shoot! I personally love visiting private living spaces for photo sessions because it is always different. I am able to incorporate many different interesting elements into the session and hopefully, help the couple or family see a different side to their home. Thank you for inviting me and allowing me to be part of an important moment in your life. All the best to you as you enter into a new phase of life!
We are excited to be part of this fundraising campaign for Make-A-Wish Malaysia. Critically ill children hold a special place in my heart and we are glad that our little efforts will go towards making a child’s dream a reality. Rayyan, 6, wishes to be a policeman, so he received an experience spending the day with real sergeants in a police patrol car. Sya’irah, 7 years and diagnosed with brain tumour, wishes to see and feed giraffes. It also breaks my heart to hear from Irene, the CEO of Make-A-Wish Malaysia, that another child’s wish was merely have a KFC meal with his family. These children come from lower income families and your contribution will go towards the children from these families. Please partner with us as we support this worthy cause, to make more life changing wishes a reality for critically sick children.
About Make-A-Wish Malaysia
Their mission is to create life changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. They are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life because a wish sparks imagination, inspiration and renewed strength to help a critically sick child and family to battle the illness.
When a child is diagnosed with a critical illness, the whole family’s lives are turned upside down. Families from lower income is further burdened with the cost of medicine and treatment which are available only in select hospitals. The sick child and parent are required to make frequent trips to these hospitals or remain long term patients to minimise cost and risk of travelling. Such long separation adds to the sick child’s despair and loneliness.
At Make-A-Wish Malaysia, they strongly believe in the life-changing Power of a Wish. A wish is not merely something nice to have, but a wondrous journey of anticipation and empowerment. The powerful wish journey creates amazing memories that continue to inspire confidence and strength long after the wish has been granted, enabling the child and family to better cope with fear and pain associated with their fight.
As a self-supported non-government organization, they rely on fundraising and donations from corporations and individuals to enable them continue their mission. Up to 2018, over 500 wishes have been granted with the help of donors and volunteers.

As a photographer, I get the special privilege of journeying alongside a client and seeing their family grow. One special moment would be during pregnancy… and then finally getting to meet the baby once he or she appears in this world. Time really seems to move so quickly once you have children. Seeing your bump growing beautifully through the months and then finally meeting that teeny little baby who then grows into an adorable toddler… this whole parenthood journey is simply amazing.
Thank you, Ka Mun and Tenny for allowing me to be part of this. I hope to see you again really soon!
There are a few occasions where I photograph women in lingerie… usually when they get into their wedding gown, when they want to take boudoir or glamour photos for their husband, or during a maternity shoot. As a female photographer, women feel more comfortable baring skin in front of me. There is a sense of vulnerability and I am honoured that complete trust is given to me.
Lucia is from Vietnam and she met the man of her dreams, Ben during one of his trips overseas. With her gorgeous looks, she is one of the hottest mums I have seen! It is no wonder that Ben is grinning from ear to ear during our photo session. I am so excited for the both of you… this journey of parenthood has its ups and downs but it is certainly rewarding! Looking forward to seeing photos of the little one soon!
I love how there are pops of colour in every shot, with hues of our favourite tones… turquoise and blues! Marbella had an interesting idea of using her daughter’s hands to create art on her baby belly, and it turned out to be some of my favourite photos from the session. It’s a great reminder of how small the firstborn was at that time, and the connection she shares with her younger sibling through the belly. Thank you for inviting me to your home and for documenting such a special milestone in your life. I got to know more about Latin American culture through the both of you. Congratulations once again!
