Behold this awesome cars theme dessert table! The entire setup and yummy goodies were prepared by Ailee from One and Only Gallery specially for Anson’s first birthday party!
For a kid who is into cars, nothing could be more perfect than having a gorgeous layout of cupcakes, candies and cookies in matching red and yellow theme colours. What’s more, apart from the background banner, even the mineral water bottles and candy wrappers were custom made. Everything looked so good that the guests couldn’t bring themselves to start eating!
The venue this time was at Cafe Melba in Mediapolis, Mediacorp’s new home ground. Cafe Melba has a modern and relaxing atmosphere boasting of a concept that fuses influences from both (Melb)ourne and (A)sia. That’s also where its name was derived from!
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! 🙂
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!
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!
