Photoshoot with Cloud Productions

[ Sponsored ]

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.

Canon Families at Fidgets

[ Media Invite ]

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.

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.

We would like to thanks Canon and Fidgets for hosting us, and our organiser Claudia. Everyone had an enjoyable afternoon.
