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! 🙂
