Family Session at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Today, I was invited by my Happymoments wedding clients’ sister to take some family and children’s portraits at Disneyland Hotel.  I brought my studio lights and backgrounds to their hotel room and did an ‘in-home’ session.  Besides taking photos with backdrops, we also took some photos using their hotel room’s interior, as well as the hotel park.

It was a joy to photograph their family!

Family Session at Happy Valley Racecourse

This is the first time I photograph at Happy Valley Racecourse, and to my surprise, it is quite a good location, especially during the sunset time. Today’s session involved a family of 7.  My client’s parents came to HK for visit and would just be staying a short while, thus, today is the perfect time to do some family portraits.

More photos to be posted soon for sharing.

Beautiful Moments (Part 31) - Elderly & Family Portraits for Caritas Elderly Homes

This is the 3rd time I got invited by Caritas to do this…. doing family portraits for their members.  Many of my subjects are really really old, like 80-90 years old. It is surprising that some elders still remembered me from last year, some don’t remembered, and some left :(  .  I feel very warm to see their families, spouses, or grand-children all took the time to come to the center to take photos with their parent / grandparent.  I witness love, relationship, and time.

Although many elders are shy and they would begin their session by saying ‘ah.. i am so old now with so many wrinkles, why still need to take photos?’… but as soon as I warmed them up and show them what I took, I would see a smile on their face, and they would automatically come up with more poses on their own.  Two subjects inspires me most, children & elders.   I respect elders for their wisdom.  I think they are most beautiful when laughing and my shutter would just click click and click if I see them burst into laughter.  I liked their eyes, often filled with serenity; smiles filled with kindness; and poses with a flavour of shyness.. which together, come out to be very ‘cute’.  I think this is the best word I would use to describe them. Their cuteness really inspires me.

Studio portraits with a big Happy Family

Today, I booked a big studio to do a family portrait with this big family group of 15 people… since home session just cannot fit!  We had great fun!

Family session at the Peninsula Hotel

So happy to see my old clients from Happymoments.net, … old meaning, I’ve met them six years ago when I was designing their wedding march-in video.  After 6 years, they are now celebrating their 6th wedding anniversary with their 4 years old boy at the same hotel they held their wedding at.  The session was very fun as their boy was super adorable and friendly.  He was very creative and took part in directing the family poses for the session too.  Oh.. i love seeing old friends and clients!

In-home session with a family of 4

It always feels good to see old clients again.   I’ve done their session around 1.5 year ago.  Now they have another baby boy and wish to capture him at six months old….i.e.: same time they gave his brother a session. I always learn from my clients of how to become a caring good mother.  And this mother is surely one of the good examples I learned from.  :) It’s with the care of loving and offering both children equally. We even took shots against the same background so that both of them have the same thing.  I thought that was a very loving gesture, all from the mother’s heart.

60th Birthday Party Celebration

Today, is Mrs. Chong’s 60th birthday!  It was a very warm event as all the grand children, family members and close friends were here.   It was a very well-planned evening by her children and I can feel Mrs. Chong is very loved by every one who knows her.   I was honored to take part in taking pictures for them for the night.

9 months old baby boy session at Stanley!

I love this smiling baby boy.  I met him before he was born, when he was still in his mom’s tummy!… then, I met him again at his Baptism at 6 months old.  now he is 9 months old already.  He has got the most innocent smiles!   Today, we went to Stanley for a quick portrait session.  It was a beautiful day, although the area was a little bit crowded (as today is public holiday) but we manage to get some shots at the Murray House and the beach.   Photos to be posted soon.

Winnie-the-Pooh themed Birthday Party

Today, I was photographing for a 2 year old girl’s birthday party at the Harbour Plaza Metropolis Hotel.  The party theme was Winnie-the-Pooh and the event organizer Kareena from Personalizestuff.com did a really good job.  The whole party was very well planned and beautifully decorated. All the guests had a great time.  Besides taking picture for the party, I also helped the guests and families take some family portraits on the spot and give them instant photos to take home for memory.  This is a new service that I had been carrying at parties.

Beautiful Moments (Part 24): McDonald birthday party for a group of babies!

Today, I was invited by ACA (again.. yes, they love me haha) to help them take some photos of a birthday party they’ve organized for their Good Parenting Project users. The birthday party took place at McDonald!!!   Tell you frankly, I’ve NEVER been to a McDonald birthday party before.  When I was a kid, I always dream to have a McDonald birthday party.  All those birthday hats, gifts, and meal sets look all very attractive to me.  Since back in those days, having birthday parties was a luxury for kids, I never thought of asking to have one nor been invited to one.  I  can’t believe after xx years now, I am finally invited to one!

The party includes around 12 birthday babies who are born in the month of September to December.  There were more than 20 families whom attended the party and everyone enjoyed the food (which you can order like a buffet, thanks to ACA), the games, the cake cutting, and the chatting and sharing times.  I of course enjoyed the kids!  There were so many smiling faces there!

I finally had my ‘first time’!  I enjoyed it alot!I can’t remember how many years I had my birthday lunch at McDonald (well that WAS my favorite back then and when my mom ask me where to go on my birthday, I would scream “McDonald” with my sister!).   I still remember collecting all of the 漢堡神偷 (Hamburglar) souveniers, as he was my favorite character.    滑嘟嘟 (Grimace) is my second favorite! After my lunch, my mom and dad would let us play at the McDonald playground for a loooong time.

Beautifulmoments Project (Part 22): Family portraits for HKFB members

Today, I was really really excited to have been invited by HKFB to help their members take some family portraits.  This lovely lady Obi contacted me thru Ho-sum.org few months ago as she thought it would be nice to give some family portraits for their members.  As their members are all visually impaired, thus, their children rarely have the chance to take family portraits.  I thought this was a very meaningful idea and I was all up for this!

Obi arranged over 10 dress-ups and costumes for the children to put on for the photo session.  She even arranged a professional makeup artist to help the kids do the hair and makeup.  I shot for 8 hours straight and I was still super hyper and clicking my shutters non-stop till the last session.  I really enjoyed kids from the 4yo-9yo range. They are so full of character and personality. During the session, the kids were so keen to learn photography and wanted to try shooting themselves. I gave them my camera, gave them few quick instructions (such as how to turn the lens to zoom), and they ended up directing the shoot within minutes.  They already observed how I did it, so they just regurgitate what was seen.  They directed the model, told them how to pose, help them fix their dress, told them what expressions to make etc..  It was totally funny and I truly enjoyed looking at them shooting their way.  They looked like mini art directors or fashion stylist to me.   Too bad I didn”t have a second camera with me that day otherwise I would definitely snap the scene and show you.  Frankly speaking, their works rock!   Some of them, you can’t tell the difference whether it was I who shot it or them :P

I hope I can teach them some day!   I always have the idea that it would be so good if I could have a team of photographers who are either all children, all 更生人仕, or all youths, who can go out with me to service the community as a professional team. It would be such a nice concept and I think it would be loads of fun!

I basically shot over 1800 photos today, for 11 families.. around 45 mins photo session each.  Loads and loads to post process!

Beautifulmoments Project (Part 18) - Elders portraits

Today, it’s China 60th Anniversary and it’s a public holiday.  Helping Hand has organized a day camp and dinner for their members and families to go to Cheung Muk Tau Holiday Centre  ( 樟木頭老人度假中心 ) to spend their day.  The elders can freely participate in any activity booths (i.e. : making their own mooncake, lantern workshops etc).  My part was to give them some beautiful family portraits using the mid-autumn festival as theme (we have got many different lanterns as props).  What’s satisfying for my part today is, when I show the elders the photos from the back of my camera’s LCD after the session, many of them said to me with the most grateful voice that they love the photo!  They kept on saying ‘thank you thank you. very beautiful! really very beautiful!’.   They sound as if they haven’t seen themselves looking this beautiful for a long time.   I felt very happy about this.    I hope my final prints will give them another big smile!

Good Parenting Project sharing meeting

I was invited to take some event snaps for this parents sharing meeting held at the Christian Family Service Centre (CFSC).  It involves many participant families from the Good Parenting Project (GPP) organized by Against Child Abuse (ACA).  And when I arrived, wow!!  Babies everywhere… all < 1 year old. The youngest was only 80 days!   I wish I had my portable studio and proper gears (backdrops + softbox etc..) with me so I could take more formal portraits of these lovely babies and families, as this was the perfect occasion to offer them some quick family portraits to keep.  I guess this opportunity would come again soon as they might host a family camp in December.  Anyway, I took many cute portraits of the events, will share with you soon.

Three 1 year old baby girls’ birthday party!

Many cute babies, home-made birthday cakes, and baby talks everywhere (coz almost all are < 18 months old).  I notice babies can REALLY communicate among themselves. It is amazing to hear them talking.   It was a friendly and cozy party!  and we even did a mini cake smashing session outside.  More photos to share with you soon.
