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.

By the way, there’s an interesting article about how zoos carry out mental exercises with their animals, and how any dog owner can achieve a happy and healthy relationship with his/her dog using the same techniques! Not every exercise will suit perfectly so be sure to choose those that you can adapt and use! 🙂

posted in: Children | 1

This was an exciting birthday party celebration with a Star Wars theme! How awesome is that? Taking a look at the details, you can easily tell that a TONNE of effort went into organising and getting all the various props. Some possible birthday party ideas and decorations include, a huge Star Wars poster, life-sized standing character cut-outs, costumes for the kids to dress up, themed tableware and even a Star Wars pinata kit! Take note not to miss the stunning custom made birthday cakes by Sensational Cakes!

 

This was not the first time we photographed Aaron and Isaac’s birthday party. Indeed, we felt privileged to have been covering their celebrations for the past few years! And the amazing thing is that they have different themes every time, with a different cake for each of them!

 

Check out some selected shots from their special day, with a showdown between all the kids and the evil Darth Vader!

Pokemon Birthday Cakes

We came across some gorgeous custom made Pokemon themed cakes made by Sensational Cakes. The colours really pop, the characters looked perfect and the lettering were beautifully designed in a way that made them appear extra 3D to the eye. Currently, they have 2 designs and personally I prefer the one directly below with Pikachu looking extra cute!
