Just when you thought my period of giving thanks is over, I keep on finding lists of things to give thanks for. As they say, “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings.” And I’ve yet to hear crystal-shattering tones. There’s something about the festive season that render me reflective, which is something I love and appreciate, because there are countless things to be grateful and thankful for.

 

I’ve had more than my fair share of love, when I realise the extent of which I am surrounded my people who love me, it makes me tremulous (to take a page out of Anne Frank’s diary).

 

I have, inwardly and outwardly, beautiful friends. Only made more evident this year through all the help offered and received in preparation for the wedding; something that I’ll guard against taking for granted. I thank them because they will make writing “thank you” cards so easy when all the stress and hubbub is over. So, the one way I chose to pay homage to them this year, is look back at the years of friendships and look at random photos I’ve taken in retrospect.

 

This year, I didn’t have the need to play dress-up, I didn’t don a Santa hat, or make myself a golden wreath, because all I need for Christmas is right here.

 

Merry Christmas folks. I hope everyone out there experiences the same warmth and love as I have.

Hannah :: Kids’ Birthday Photography

December 20, 2013

PinExt Hannah :: Kids Birthday Photography portraiture infants family 2 babies

Let’s change the tone up a little in here and talk about babies. Yes, babies! I’m only just beginning to notice that they seem to be everywhere nowadays, or perhaps it’s just a sign of my ovaries exploding.

 

Jokes aside, I have been honoured to be present at many of my clients’, past and present, milestones of celebrating their children. It started out with ┬ásimple shoot with close friends and their new (well, now not so new) baby, Hannah. Since then, the session I’ve been doing have burgeoned into not just newborn and baby photography, but stretching to covering first birthday parties too – I find it apt that Hannah was the first birthday party I covered.

 

It’s amazing to be celebrating with clients turned into friends, it’s on a different level than weddings, but I’m always thankful to be privy to the families and the joy they are experiencing. Likewise, I’m happy to be able to share this with you guys too with a few peeks of some shoots I’ve done in the year, starting with Hannah’s Monster Bash!

 

*In case you were wondering, all the mini sock monsters were hand made by Hannah’s mom Eunice. They are too adorable!

Char+Chris :: A King’s Park and Perth City Engagement

Seeing that I lived in Perth for a good three years of my life and get occasionally nostalgic for the life down under, I was excited to be back for a stint and attending the wedding of one of my best buds, Chris and his fiance Char. I was even more excited to be able to shoot a quick pre-wedding the week before the big day.

 

What I really like seeing from couples in front of the camera is when they are not shy in showing shades of their personalities in the midst of posing. The afternoon was never short of funny faces, stuck out tongues, and spirited hadokens from these two.

 

Char and Chris, thank you for inviting me to take your pre-wedding photos, it was a delight re-discovering old haunts with you guys.
