Hello Bump: Tan Maternity Portrait

Pregnancy is like the beginning of all things
wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.

Sutji and I go way back. Back when singing 'Majulah Singapura' was a daily routine, when uniforms were the norm, and when $2-a-day pocket money is enough to get you a full meal at the school canteen. She was a year my junior in secondary school.

This gorgeous soon-to-be mother-of-two is someone who understands completely how I feel about the constant moving around - uprooting and setting roots, leaving friends and family and creating new bonds. We share a very similar story, despite spending our formative years in Singapore, we were but foreigners - she from Indonesia, and I, Malaysia; moved to Australia for uni - she in Melbourne, I, Perth; and finally, settling down in Malaysia - she after getting married to a Malaysian. 

When she got in touch with me for a family shoot, I was honoured. The hour flew by as we caught up quickly with each other about life. It was also my first time meeting the beautiful cheeky chocolate loving little Miss H. I cannot wait to see number 2, who will be making his debut next month. If he looks anything like his older sister, I'm sure he will be a handsome little tyke, primed to set all the ladies hearts aflutter.
