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! 🙂
Pokemon has always been a popular theme in children’s birthday parties. It’s even more of a rage now with the release of the trendy game Pokemon Go. For all the mummies out there looking for inspiration, here is a quick video on where to source for birthday party supplies for a Pokemon theme birthday party in Singapore!
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!
