Although i set my calendar to remind me to update on this site, it seems to be impossible with so much work on editing and shooting on my side. However, this evening i decided to spend some time on it. Need to focus more no excuses!
Good friends are always there for you!
The last Saturday party was a surprise party arranged by his wife. Not sure how his wife did it, but she managed to get his few close friends up for a surprise! Imagine all adults hiding in kitchen like kids playing hide and seek, so funny to watch.
I myself also hiding so can’t get a good angle lol…… you can see that his friends was so fun ti have, junping out with such a huge grin!
This is the 3rd time i am covering the birthday party for this family. Still remember they got two twins, which is already amazing for me, now this party is for their 5th baby Zaclyn.
They love kids so i guess they may go for another one lol…….
The venue is Kids Amaze Toa Payoh Safra. Kids Amaze refurnished the walls with fresh coat of paint, now looks more new, but still too colorful for me… but good for them and kids. By the way, if there’s many kids coming for party, it will be good to have some play for them, kids amaze will be good to let them run till energy flat.
The family invites their close friends and relatives only for this celebration to keep it small but warm. Have a 5 minutes talk with the father on some Singapore matters, only Singaporeans knows…..
I’m there for Maximus birthday, and guess what? The theme is Monkey, not sure is it a cartoon character or just a monkey? But i think either they like monkey a lot, or they are animals lovers. Cute to see the top of the cake a monkey with small bananas surrounding it. Those bananas so small i wonder how did the maker does it…
Who wants to be there early
I am, i always early for shoot. I hate it when i am late (never late before). Early means you can take your own sweet time to check out the area and if lucky, can start shooting the set up table decorations as when guests starts arriving you will get no time for that. Another point is can chit chat with people, making new friends.
Maximus got so much attention, of course
He is the main star, can see that both granny really adores him, showering Maximus with a lot of love. Guests starts to take selfie with him as soon as he is available, transferring him between arms. Maximus was a fun friendly baby, he smiles to almost anyone who plays with him, the cake cutting was a smooth process as he does not afraid of people crowding near him.
By the way, the venue is Safra Punggol Ansana room.
Last year, i am engaged as the photographer for Marcus’s birthday. Last week, i am there again, but this time with another birthday gal name is Olivia.
kid’s gym party will be fun with non-stop actions!
Both will be celebrating together and i am kinda excited as well, not only seldom to have two in one party, but the venue is Kid’s gym, kinda tough to shoot two subjects while they both running around. Luckily, as i am there few times before, kid’s gym routine for the party i roughly got an idea. The whole party was very much pack with non-stop action, you can see from the pictures. Definitely a good place for kids to get really hype up! this trainers really can speak in a loud voice for one hour, not easy as the voice will be hoarse afterwards.
Getting parents to be involved as well.
I like the way trainers handle the things, carefully planned and the last item will be smashing the soft balls at the parents, getting adults and kids playing together, wonderful for many nice party images. Of course let’s don’t forget about the bubbles!
Yes indeed, a surprise when Mary husband told me that it’s a twins full month celebration! I’m not told about this when Mary contacted me for the shoot. Still remember that i covered a few times for their Son birthday. Am really happy for them.
Nice set up for the celebration!
The set up was very nicely done with a banner as back drop. Can see that the company their hired was good, very detailed and especially the pink color brightens up the whole set up area. Haley and Kayley was the names for the twins, sweet names and i think the Mediacorp also got twins by the same name….
Happy occasions with guest
Quite a number of familiar faces attended this celebration, all closed relatives and friends. Can see that they are very closed and can talk anything under the sun. Yup the big brother of the twins still very playful, full of poses and funny patterns. When the twins arrive, can see many people take out their phones and starts snapping!! I really wished the Twins happy and full of happiness!
Wow finally get to shoot a Moana theme party, where some kids dress up as Moana movie character. One of the boy really cute with his dress up. Zara, the birthday girl was please as well. Although she’s 2 only, she kinda know a lot about what’s happening.
Outdoor family portrait during birthday party
Zainah requested some family portraits outside the party room as her hubby going out station soon outside of Singapore. I of course very happy to do that. It’s good to give client memorable images to keep. If they print it will be good as see it every day is different. The party goes smoothly and towards the end, Zainah prepared some games for the kids to play, one of the game is moana of course, which i didn’t get any answer correct… yeah i never watch it.
Feel free to contact me for birthday party photography!
When i knew the party was on Splash, i know that it’s gonna be wet for the kids. This time round the client got two photographers from us as she knows very hard to capture so many moments as a lot of guest invited. True enough, one photographer will not be able to be at two locations same time. The buffet was at the other corner room. Look at those kids having so much fun getting wet! Sorry can post few only as too many!
The party was full of goodies!
The client even engaged Laolao for the party! The guest was much delighted to have a cold dessert as it’s kinda hot. Yup there’s a party guy playing games for the kids, entertaining them for a cool 30 minutes, i suspect longer….
The decoration must highlight, it’s nice and can see that the client really put in effort on this birthday party. Every details counts and i think i didn’t see any missing items…. i must say, to be young you gotta be in a lot of kids birthday party!! Ya i must say i like the big signage!! Or poster?? What you call this? Details on birthday girl.
At first, i got no idea what is this place at Hort Park. I thought it’s a restaurant something like that. But it turns out to be a retail arm of Edible Garden City. Interesting right, a garden in a city. Grow your own food.
When i went in, i am amazed by the fact that the whole place looks very much green, you will forget that this in right in a city. Lovely place to immense yourself to grow and eat your own fruits and vegetables.
Workshop for the kids
Well, this is a birthday party, which the whole place will be used. The kids will get to enjoy a workshop conducted by the owner themselves. From learning to differential some herds and plants to making their own tea, a very thoughtful lesson for city people like us. Of course the kids washes what they picked from the garden. Did i mention about making their own pizzas and eat it later? Yup the kids got to make their own pizza!
Do enjoy the place when you are there
When you are there, make sure you explored the whole place and talk to the people there, you will get some new skills when you leave. The rest of the images from the party below, the kids was so happy they did something extraordinary that day. Link to NONG Edible Garden City!
It’s great to see Ayesha and her family again this year! Lost count on how many times i am here to help and enjoy the birthday party! This time round the birthday was held at the condo function room, yes air con! But little did i know it the kids going for a swim later lol…
All food was prepared by Ayesha family, all yummy malay style goodies, i like it spicy.
There’s games prepared by Ayesha’s mother, three i think. The kids was enjoying these little games that i managed to captured so many wonderful expressions go the kids, kudos to her!
But kids as kids, they still enjoy the most at the pool.
