Connor is FIVE!

I WHALE always love you!

Hello little boy… it has been 3 years!!

From farm animals to dinosaurs and now to sea animals (he saw a whale in a shadow on the ground)... #ohmyheart how this little boy has turned into a cheeky, goofy, funny little man. I cannot believe that he is 5!

To think that I've photographed him since he was but a teeny tiny one month old! Dear little boy, as you grow another year older, may you never lose your childlike wonder and joy, and I pray you'd grow to be a man after His heart.

Watch this cheeky little face grow - one-month old; six-month old; one year old party; and two-year old portrait

The 山口 (Yamaguchi) Family

a fishing day
is the best kind of day!

‘お姉さん。。。お姉さん。。’ もう30歳になったから、子供ちゃん ‘お姉さん’ 言う時、きもちがよかった!^_^
Onaesan, jie, chichi... whatever language it’s in... it always feels so good when a little kid insist on calling you ‘big sister’.

Most of the time when I photograph families, I feel like for that one hour, we are really good friends hanging out, and having fun together.

Time just flew by with the gorgeous Yamaguchi family. who were so natural and easy to photograph. I watched Rikku-chan fish, take care of his sister on the playground, and even had a little scare when he ran up to me with a dragonfly he caught. #ohmyheart.

Can I please have more play dates like these?

Singapore Family: Calvina Dawn, EB, + ED

I scream, you scream
we all scream for ICE CREAM!

Nothing like ice-cream to make the teeny tinies happy after a super hot and humid Singaporean morning!

How the littles have grown! I last photographed Calvina Dawn’s beautiful family in 2017, and fell completely in love with her adorable twosome, EB and ED. What a difference a year makes - EB is still the fun-loving singing little miss chatter, while ED has grown into an entertaining cheeky toddler.

After our session, she left the nicest note too!

Calvina, thank you for inviting me to be a part of making memories together with you and your family. Thank you for believing and loving my art. #somuchloveforyoufour #okandmaybelouistoo. I’m so blessed by your friendship!

Hello Bump: The Tan Family

9 months preparing, to fall in love for a lifetime.

As soon as I met Xinyi, it was as if I've known her for many many years! Bubbly and with an easy laughter, she has the kind of charisma that just makes you want to be friends with her. It also helped that she shared two of my favourite things to do - travelling and food.

The 十川 (Sogawa) Family

'Oh baby, we've waited a long time for you to arrive...'⠀

The beautiful Sogawa family were completely adorable to photograph! Kohki-chan was one cool little baby, who when he smiles, becomes the cutest thing ever! One thing I love about photography is that in that short span of an hour, I feel like we've become good friends - as we swap life stories. I especially enjoyed having cups of coffee (they met as baristas in Starbucks in Tokyo) over sweet cakes at the end of our session.

Baby Kohki is Malaysian made, and as the family make plans to head back to Tokyo after 5 years here, they wanted photos to remember this brief, but love-filled chapter.

Before they flew back to Japan, they surprised me with such a sweet message - that caused me to grin from one ear to the other, and reminded me why I chose to do what I do.

In a nutshell, she said that she would only love to have me as their family photographer, to document baby's growing up years. And that if I visit Tokyo, to please get in touch with her.

The Leow Family

My one big reason to be happy - YOU! 

Jonathan and Liane are very dear to me. They were the very first international wedding assignment I photographed. 3 years later... they are back with their entire family, for a short visit, with the cutest little bub in tow. It was such an absolute joy getting to know little miss K, with her very cheeky smiles, and cute coos. I was completely smitten by her. Cannot wait to meet you guys again in Perth, next year!

Singapore: Best Friends Forever

One million memories, ten thousand inside jokes,
one hundred shared secrets, one reason: best friends.

With mummies who have been best friends since primary school, it's only apt these two little girls are best friends too! It was so cute watching them converse with each other, they were just so in sync, and seemed to enjoy each other's company the most! To my amusement, they were happiest and laughing most naturally when posing for photos with each other. 

I hope one day, my best friend and I, we will get pregnant and have kids at the same time, so that they can grow and laugh together, just like these two. #ohmyheart

Singapore: The Koon Family

"You're one in a melon!"

Family Portrait 59.jpg

Just like her Big Sister C, Baby E celebrated her first birthday, with a refreshing watermelon smash. It was definitely a welcome respite from the Singaporean heat. ...and ... them pearls and tutu (Big Sister C's exact outfit a few years ago) - so completely adorbs! 

I absolutely loved being a part of making heart memories.
