Family Portrait: Catch me if you can!

Cousins make the best of friends!

Ready… set… go….. and these four energiser bunnies took off. A split second later, the oldest boy (who was leading in front), turned around and waited for the youngest one. #ohmyheart. These boys are really the sweetest!

I must admit when I first found out that the session comprised of 4 little boys under 10 years old, I was slightly apprehensive. I was afraid that my legs wouldn’t be able to keep up with them, and that I wouldn’t get photos which tell their personalities. However, after the short walk from the carpark to the park, I knew that we’ll be ok! Honestly, there were so many favourites from this session!

The Erikson-Fay Family

... this is LOVE ...
when you're surrounded by all the hugs and giggles.

Two sisters, so similar, yet so different - one with a very sweet smile, and so very generous with her hugs, the other, full of personality and joyful cheer. The hour spent with this gorgeous family, just whizzed by with lots of giggles and laughter (and also mozzie bites)

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!

The Lee Family

my favourite humans
are the ones who let me be
as crazy as I am.

Being invited into homes to photograph, being offered a glimpse into each child’s unique personalities, I count it a blessing, to be able to do what I do. A lot of people ask if I ever get tired… honestly, how can I, when I get to hang out, get to know, laugh and joke with so many new people.

Singapore Family: Qiao Yi + Wee Cheong

'Family means putting your arms around each other, and being there.'

Oh.. the way his smile lights up his face! What a special little boy. Despite the heat, the sunshiny 6-month old was so cheerful, from start to finish!

Singapore Family: Bubbly good fun!

"and at the end of the day,
your feet should be dirty,
your hair messy,
and your eyes sparkling."

Love it when families are not afraid to get a little bit (or a lot!) of dirt on, and are just so in-the-moment enjoying themselves. It definitely makes photographing them so much easier.
