Portraits and Lifestyle Session of Yu Xuan at the Singapore Zoo | Singapore Birthday Party and Children Photographer

posted in: Children | 0

We had a great time photographing Yu Xuan at the Singapore Zoo! We have covered Yu Xuan’s birthday party celebrations in the past so it was not our first session with her. It was supposed to be Yu Xuan’s birthday but instead of putting up a party, Yu Xuan’s mummy decided to do something different and organise a family outing at the Singapore Zoo! Another intention was to allow the kids to learn more about our natural environment and animals up close. Letting the kids do what they do best, ie letting them interact naturally with their environment, is the best way to guarantee lots of photo opportunities. There is nothing more genuine than that! Here are some of my favourites from our session.

Travel Photography Works Showcased at Noise Singapore 2016 Festival at Capitol Piazza | Singapore and Japan Travel Photographer

 

I am very honoured to have a couple of travel photography work showcased at the Noise Singapore 2016 Festival Exhibition at Capitol Piazza. This festival exhibition is a flagship exhibition which presents a curated showcase of original artworks and commissioned installations based on the theme ‘Uncharted’. Artworks are selected by an expert panel made up of acclaimed photographers such as Stefen Chow and Lee Tiah Khee. This year, the location is at the outdoor plaza of Capitol Piazza.

Having had the opportunity to take part in the Noise Singapore festival exhibitions since 2009, I witnessed for myself how the arts scene, particularly in the area of photography, illustration and music has progressed in Singapore over the years. The installations, programme schedule, quality of artworks and scale have significantly improved, and I felt that the recognition and exposure that this platform has provided, and will provide, to artists are both considerable and meaningful. I am very grateful to share the stage with many reputable local artists and I look forward to to more future opportunities to sharing my work.

1st Birthday Party of Yu Cheng | Singapore Birthday Party and Children Photographer

posted in: Children | 0

We thoroughly enjoyed this birthday party celebration of Yu Cheng, who is the 2nd bundle of joy to this client. He was so cute and chubby that the guests couldn’t take their hands off him!

Similar to many other clients, this was not the first time I have met this family. The first time was at Yu Cheng’s elder brother, Yu Kang’s first birthday party. That was a couple of years ago. Naturally, I was delighted to be given the task of documenting Yu Cheng’s joyous occasion as well.

Such authentic moments will become more and more valuable with time. Kids grow at such an alarming rate that we tend to overlook so many moments without realising it. Fortunately, we can still return to specific points in the past through photographs. In a way, they are windows, or drawers, to fragments of our memories tucked away in some corner within us. That was what I learnt after going through some life events 🙂

Having said that, enjoy these cute candid moments of the birthday boy!
