I did something memorable on my birthday last month, family photoshoot with Cloud Productions at Toa Payoh Town Park.
We were in our sports attire as I wished to emphasised “A family which trains together, grows strong together”.
Then and now, my brother and me 🙂
After Toa Payoh Town Park was rejuvenated (the pond was crowded with tortoises then), I am happy to find familiar arching stone bridge and low hanging trees.
We did not specifically pick any colour-matching clothes, but the pictures turn out great. Cloud Productions make us look photogenic and Happy. Say Yes Please 🙂
Truth is, it is never easy to gather the kids’ attention. They were tired after morning activities.
The tortoises were a constant distraction, and I had to remind the kids not to throw stones at the poor tortoise!
The weather was slightly warm but the trees were really inviting. We pose around the branches with gorgeous background water body.
In case you are wondering why Boon Xin refrains from smiling, she is very conscious of her missing front teeth. She still looks very sweet though. I am definitely bias 🙂
Our package was 60 minutes, but I suspect maybe 20 minutes was spent coaxing the kids to cooperate. You know, the reminders “Look here, Open your eyes, Smile, 5 more minutes finish”.
Cloud Productions’ Chief Photographer (Irene) was very patient with our kids’ antics. I know how hard it is to make everyone stay still for 10 seconds and look at the lens haha.
Within the hour, Irene captured a few lovely and warm family portraits. Some of the poses were spontaneous, but we love the effects! Mummy especially like the first picture, with background sunlight embracing us.
The kids had fun running up and down the various contours too.
Yeah, the siblings like to play with stones too, they sometimes aim the pebbles at each other too!
We hope the siblings will continue to love and care for each other as they grow older.

At Grandstand Fidgets, all the kids were so serious when it come to their diy cupcakes. There was laughter, giggling and a strong whiff of fragrance in the baking class.
Canon hosted us to a 2-in-1 event last week. Indoor playground and cupcake-baking for the young ones, and photography workshop (with Bob Lee) for the not-so-young ones.
We parents know the kids are in good hands, and we had that few precious moments to learn from a photography pro.
Boon Xin asking whether she can use a heart-shape mold?
Parents snapping away at the cute kiddos, with their chef’s hat, totally engrossed in their cupcake domain.
While kids entertain themselves, parents pick up a tip or two from photographer Bob Lee. Shutter, Focus, how to capture that Moment with your child.
Bob’s tips were simple and easy to understand.
A for Angle
B for Bokeh
C for Continuous mode
D for Distance and detail
E for Exposure
and finally F to Z – Keep shooting!
Through his photo sharing, we can feel Bob’s love towards his family, especially his child.
Personally, Daddy always believe that it is the daily photos (those mundane repetitive ones) which will tell our stories decades down the road. The unplanned, the insignificant photos (yes, even the blur ones) offer snippets of our cherished lifestyles.
We celebrate the milestones, but it is often the daily mundane stuffs which tell our story.
Fidgets offers a lot of space and activities to keep kids busy. Crafting section at one corner.
Across the “street”, kids went wild running up the ladders and sliding down the slides. They had an opportunity to play before and after the cupcake class.
Toddler’s section is definitely safer for the little ones, away from the rugged older kids.

Parents and kids get to bring their yummy treat home.
We would like to thanks Canon and Fidgets for hosting us, and our organiser Claudia. Everyone had an enjoyable afternoon.

Let your creativity roams, let your individuality shines.
Go crazy, release the Star inside, unleash your inhibitions.
Looking at the first photo above, you know we did not bring “shyness” to the studio.
To quote from Studio Me : Did you know that “Green Screen” or “Blue Screen” effects are also known as Chroma Key Compositing, which is commonly used in Hollywood movies production? Book a studio now to experience what they do on the big screen!
Please skip Green in your wardrobe, unless you wish to camouflage yourself !
In 3 easy steps, Pose, Step and Smile.
The LED screen will teach you which pedal to step, in order to change the background. We have to remind everyone to take turns, as kids can be overly enthusiastic !
This is the captured image, we have to get use to looking at the camera, normally we end up looking higher at the LED screen 🙂
Think Neo print, but on a bigger scale. At Studio Me, you get to book your own mini studio where you can shoot as many photos within a 30-minutes session. There are 3 themed mini studios – Unity, Pop and Icon, with more than 48 themes (in total).

Make sure you grab some props (or bring your own) to make your photos Pop !
Behind the scenes is equally, if not, more Fun !
Did Daddy say this is one of his easiest blog post? He just needs to let the photos do the talking, and almost every photo turn up comical and fun !
It is really easy to make everyone smile. At Studio Me, family photo is not so difficult anymore. Look at the fun Themes below 🙂
SengkangBabies like red carpet treatment, glam it up !
Once they got hold of the three steps, kids were happy exploring the other studios !
Little Rock stars !
Romantic moments, with LOVE and Rose petals everywhere (can we request for a chocolate backdrop?)
Cartoons haha, we look so cute hiding behind Doraemon’s door, or whacking the tortoise in Mario Land.
Have you ever dream of appearing on Magazine covers? Our family is bigger, so we need to wriggle here and there to fit the Frame.
Jaws ! King Kong ! T-Rex , wow Awesome haha 🙂
Although we do not have budget to touch Eiffel tower or Statue of Liberty, but we can pretend right :p
Or for that matter, to catch autumn in Osaka ( No Sakura theme ?)
You must ask Studio Me about “Around the World in 30 minutes” Package !
We let the kids decide the backdrop and the props themselves. We heard from Marie (Marketing Studio Me) that some families even book three studios to celebrate their children’s birthdays !
Wow, this should be fun for the kids.
Kids can busk !
FuN is Spontaneous ! Just look at the siblings go crazy !
Our new room.
We are going holiday again, hello we forgot to wear our footwear 🙂
At the end of the session, it just takes 10 minutes to download all your photos into a CD. Yes, we get to keep every single shot (no extra charge). Studio Me’s canvas is also popular with customers, some even bring their own photos to frame.
