"As we grow up we realise that it is less important to have lots of friends, and more important to have real ones."
Qihui and Seirye were my friends from high school - Seirye used to sit next to me in class! And we always get confused when teachers call one of us as our names were similar sounding - my Chinese name is Ze Rae. In one of my trips back to Singapore, we finally managed to squeeze a portrait session in.
Best friends for almost two decades, they got married at almost similar times, and then started a family of their own. It was a barrel of laughter with these two mommies, their husbands and their very adorable baby boys! Godmas to each other's little ones, they even have matching stuffed bunnies! With smiles that can light up the room (when it chooses to appear), and being comfortable enough to dig each other's noses (seriously, I laughed till my sides ached), little munchkin and little hyukster look set to follow in their mummies footsteps to be best friends forever too!
I'm incredibly thankful that photography has given me the opportunity to reconnect with old friends, and share a small part of celebrating together with them, some of their life milestones.
