Summary: About a month ago, I received an email request from Christine and Tristan that they’ve been backpacked throughout most part of south east asia countries for the past two months, nothing comes as exotic as the landscape of Angkor Wat and they wanted a photo session here, I couldn’t be more excited as Angkor Wat has always been one of my favourite place for photo shoot destination for clients or travel purposes. In our first meeting at their hotel, they were very outspoken and friendly couple which excites me throughout the entire photo shoot session. I love clients that outspoken, communicates and adventurous to try out suggestions from photographers. I remember there were one moment I’ve suggested to them that it would be nice if they could climb up there’s this one gorgeous looking big tree for a photo, before I could re-confirm with them, Christine has already made her moves climbing up the tree, and so is Tristan. Compare to most of Asian couples I’ve met, not many of them will show enthusiasm if you ask them to climb rocks / trees. I must say we were all very blessed that day with beautiful sunny day and manageable crowds at times of photo shoot. Other than our photo trip, I’m also very grateful they’ve recommended me to see the Phare Circus at Siem Reap. It was just truly an amazing experience. I’m glad to meet Christine and Tristan in this unforgettable photo journey with them and hope to see them again, probably visiting their new home in Boston in near future.
Summary : Zhi Xuen is slow to hype up when arrived at our studio, a totally new environment requires some time for her to adapt to but not till when the cake arrive in front of her. It was a messy business. Her cute expression of looking all miserable that the adult are not stopping her but encouraging her to mess up the place. It was a fun afternoon with Zhi Xuen, including the cleaning up afterwards.
Summary: When my client arrived with her newborn baby boy, I knew she’s a tattoo artist but did not knew her husband too is a very popular tattoo artist. How cool is that ! My mind is running wild with ideas having two tattoo artist parent at my studio doorsteps. They were very keen in sharing their ideas too and fun to work with. This has to be one of the coolest newborn photoshoot I’ve done. I’ve also discovered they are both very popular with many fans following them in their Facebook page. I’ve always fascinates with tattoo artist dedication to their art, probably we’re all creating something that is not only to the likes for our clients but something uniquely our arts. Here’s some sneak peek to some of the shots taken that day.
