This maternity session was taken place on top of the highest hill, overlooking the entire city and then some! It was spectacular and a dream come true, nothing short of perfection. Their matching salmon colored outfit and the way her gown flew in the wind was enough to make me want a baby bump too! The magic is the effortlessness and the affection between the parents earnestly awaiting for the arrival of baby boy.

It's an epidemic that happens with all the kids, I'll be going through it again this September. I hope we find a cure soon, because I am not looking forward to having Ms. Attitude-bossy pants around.
Times like these is when I look forward to my newborn sessions, just for snuggles =)
p.s. Our neighbor has this adorable cottage fence with an overgrown shrubbery so of course, I had to take Rei for a mini session. I mean, total Italy vibes!
In the 11 years that I've been a professional photographer, I've managed to capture more than handfuls of weddings. I started as a make-up and hair person, worked my way into the glamour and fashion industry then getting published by international magazines such as FHM. There is not one category of photography that I haven't mastered but there is one true element to my style, and that is being a documentarian. I like to shoot with a cinematic vision which adds drama & dimension to the images.
This time, we have a Vietnamese wedding which involves a traditional tea ceremony with family members and friends in being a part in the celebration. The giving of dowry includes different foods and goodies representative of the prosperous life which the bride will be married into. It literally takes a "village" to help carry to and from. The gestures reflect the stability of the groom and his men. After all, it is a rather grand event sending two lovers into a harmonious marriage.
The newlywed couple is to pour and serve tea to the elders and relatives from both sides of the family as a sign of paying their respects. In return, they receive blessings that accompany with money envelopes and jewelry.
It is a rather long day full of different outfit changes and events but it's also full of moments to be remembered. The reception begins with a scrumptious 10 course meal and followed by what seems to be-the best party ever!

I cant believe I get to snuggle with these adorable babies, it's almost too good to be true! I guess adding a puppy into the photo would just make my ovaries explode. I know I go overboard with all the poses and props but I can't stop especially if they are being such good sleepyheads for me!
The best part is being able to share these photos with the world and the thankful feeling I get from Mum is beyond rewarding for me.

Abel, handsome baby boy born with the perfect hairline. He sure made his parents wait for his arrival as what years went by following his older sister. You can see how smitten she is with him in the photos. We have to throw it big to celebrate this family in all they had hoped and achieved. Unfortunately his Dad was not able to make it to the session but I will just bribe him next time for a family session =P

Jill, my all time favorite client who has been coming to me for 2 years now is back to welcome her third child. She is as chubby as they come with the cutest button nose. I can stare at her all day, but then I remember I am at work, ha!
I do feel incredibly honored to be able to bring these images together and for her older siblings to be able to cherish this moment. I think looking into the future, this would act as a reminder to stick up for your family through thick and thin.
I know sometimes photos are not representative at the moment, but years and years from now is when we all like to look back and re-live those days.

Is there any other milestone more precious than this?! They are sooo plump and generally not mobile yet so they're not busy running away from you!
I love my milestone package sessions, I get to see them as they grow and it's a precious moment that I get to share their first year with because you know, they are only a baby for a year..
