Family Portrait: The Ikings

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible — the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family. 
- Virginia Satir

2 newborns, 2 gorgeous little girls, and 8 adults - I love LOVE love large families. I also love families who are unafraid to show affection and just genuinely enjoy being together. After photographing Michelle-Ann's large photogenic in-laws (The Suppiah Clan), I was really glad when she contacted me again, this time to photograph her family, who were visiting from Sabah. 

The portraits are even more precious, as I found out a couple of months later, that the late patriarch of the family, Mozes M Iking II, passed on peacefully. RIP.
