When we first thought of this idea of bringing our fresh take on portrait photography half way across the globe, we didn’t know what to expect. Kinda like jumping into the “deep end and see what happens” approach. Sometimes it is the best way to learn. And learn we did! Anne and I learned that there is a pent-up demand for modern natural portraiture that is authentic and relational.
So we’re back from an incredible experience photographing various families in Malaysia and Singapore. We were all over the cities on this photoshoot project. From the historic colonial district of Fullerton Bay area to the tranquil natural settings of KL’s Lake Gardens. We got escorted aroound at the uber-cool Mont Kiara neighbourhoods to frolicking about in the cool uplands of Genting. We even got to shoot at a Peranakan District of Emerald Hill in Singapore. Locations that foreign visitors would not normally visit. But it was the wonderful friendships that we made during the project that was the true highlight.
As usual we will be posting more of our Connections 2013 works in the near future along with the rest of the regular photoshoots! Stay tuned!
We met Adrian and Julia when there were only two of them! Then Nat Nat came along. Cool! Later Jayden joined the party. And Josiah made five. We have had the pleasure to photograph this little boy back in 2011. What was once a sleepy quiet little infant is now a hyperactive boy running around exploring everything at Queens Park in New Westminster. “Wait! Come back Jo Jo! Wait!”
Happy Spring!Show me more please!»
Ahh Granville Island. The place of clashing contrasts. Where else can one find a children market right opposite a beer brewing facility? Where the well heeled Vancouver yacht owners dine with scruffy bicycle owning hippies in a local artisan food court run by immigrants. In all technical purposes, ‘ol Granville is not even an island!
So it is in this home of the opposites where we met up with the Chan family. You see they travelled 10,000km from Hong Kong while we travelled 30km for this family photography session! Nah, they were really visiting loved ones and we’re just a side-show distraction. But hey we all had fun and little Charlyne was insanely adorable!
Welcome to Canada guys! Now go feed some ducks!Show me more please!»
Sometimes one just has to step out of one’s comfort zone. Yup. That’s what that fortune cookie read. Uh-huh!
Over the last couple of years, we have had the greatest pleasure of not just meeting but also photograph some of the most wonderful people here in beautiful Vancouver, BC. It started out as a little idle talk on the way back from a recent photo shoot. Since we have shot for clients coming from other parts of the world, therefore why not bring ourselves to the world? So this year we are taking our ninja portrait photography vision across the great Pacific for our first ever “Connections 2013” Photoshoot tour. We will be hitting two major cities in Asia – Kuala Lumpur and Singapore and will be documenting relationships as we have been in Vancouver. So get the word out!
It’s gonna be pretty awesome! Stay Tuned….
In a word – INCREDIBLE. There’s no ifs no buts. Anne and I absolutely enjoy working with children period. Fun Loving. Genuine. Beautiful.
Case in point was our late fall children photography at Kids by Design in Maple Ridge. The plan was to capture the beautiful golden colours of Fall leaves. Mid-way through this multi day photoshoot, the heavens open up and it began to rain. Nooooo!!! All of us ran back into the building. Drats! But guess what, despite the rain down, the children’s spirit didn’t get dampened. They were upbeat. A quick look around, we thought “Hey, that concrete mural wall looks cool! Let’s try it.” As they say the rest are history and we all had crazy fun for the rest of the time.
Dear Parents, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to work with you wonderful children. Love them. Cherish them. They are great.Show me more please!»
