Singapore Maternity: J+D

I will hold you in my heart, until I can hold you in my arms.

Starting the year with this beautiful couple, I photographed early last December!

I believe that women are at their prettiest when carrying their baby. I love their gorgeous glow, and that air of excited expectancy, as they await their bub.

You know how some people, just vibes with you?

When Joanne messaged me on instagram about a session in Singapore, I felt an almost instant connection. Meeting her, and photographing her little soon-to-be expanding family, made me just so very happy. I was reminded, that... this... this... is the reason why I choose to do what I do. I laughed so much, and just had so much fun with them. Thank you, love, not too long now!

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.

Bump-to-Pop: The Khoo Family

she's a combination of sugar, spice,
sunshine and stardust.

I met Lina in church when we were both studying in Perth. She is somebody who just radiates warmth and friendship. As we were both in different universities then, we gradually lost contact as life took over. I was really glad when Liang whom I met through my then boyfriend-now-husband, brought Lina to visit our Young Adults Bible Study Fellowship class. Fast forward a few years later, it was such an honour and joy to photograph them as they grow another member. Baby E is the cutest little thing, with easy smiles, and the chubbiest cheeks.

and suddenly
ALL the love songs were about you.

I cannot even begin to write about how much I loved this set of photographs. J + A is one of the sweetest, most loving, and most musical couple I know. It was truly an honour to be invited into their very homey space as they prepare for their little bub... and a joy to get to know the little bub who has them irresistible cheeks, easy laughter, and cheeky smile. #smitten

Hello Bump: Cheang Maternity

A grand adventure is about to begin
- Winnie the Pooh -

Tim and Suwen are dear friends. We've been through so many things together. I've also photographed their engagement session, as well as coordinated their wedding. We usually do boardgames and coffee together... #itsbeensolong! When we were hanging out one day, we decided to do a quick 20-minute maternity portrait session with them. 

Hello Bump: Chong Maternity

I fell in love with you, because of the million things
you never knew you were doing.

Smitten... completely and utterly with each other and the baby. Jo and Ivan are such beautiful souls who already had so many plans for their little one. I especially loved the gorgeous tailored lace gown Jo custom-made especially for the session.

Family Portrait: The Ngs

Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen or to hatch.
- EB White

An inquisitive two year old, a warm and cheerful papa, and a very fit expecting mama.

From the beginning, the Ngs were just so much fun to be around. I was particularly impressed with the glowing mama-of-two-to-be, who was almost full term, yet was game to try all sorts of poses. I later found out that the family practices yoga. I got so excited that I asked if I could incorporate some of the poses into our session.

Bump-to-pop: The Kos

Life reveals her beauty, one precious miracle at a time.

Every bit the expectant parents to be, the Kos were completely excited for the arrival of their little one. I couldn't help but get caught up in their glowing happiness, as they smiled and spoke in hushed tones throughout the session.

When baby K arrived, she was all big eyes and cute babbles, especially when she sees herself in the mirror (she probably thinks the baby staring back at her is a friend). She may be just a teeny tiny little human being, but she already has her parents (especially daddy) smitten and wrapped around her little fingers.
