Initially I wanted to blog about photo diary of Milan Teh Studio but I've decided to skip that first and I wanted to introduce family diary to everyone and share with all of you what I did very recently. During this Chinese New Year, I was hired for an outdoor family shoot at Hard Rock Hotel, Penang on the first day of Chinese New Year. My client, Pik Yoke and her 2 elder sisters are staying at different countries and it is quite a rare opportunity that all 3 of them could gather together in Malaysia at the same time.
What I thought is the most happy thing for me is looking at how happy they were during the shoot especially my client's mother. Her mother was really happy about all 3 daughters being able to gather at the same time during this New Year. I could really feel her mother and the process of the 3 hours shoot was like having fun all the time!
As for myself, I did volunteered to shoot some pictures for my family this year. At the end of the day looking back to the pictures, no words could describe my happiness to see everyone is inside and all the spontaneous moments like how I do for actual day weddings that was captured with the camera. It's like a gift I'm giving myself and the reward is simply, priceless. Perhaps every photographer should do this once in a while too. It's not about how much we will earn but rather, how happy we will be.
Back to family diary, why I wanted to 'assign' a diary name for my shoots? Simply because I see them as a diary, when you 'flip' through the photos, they will evoke emotions and memories. Like wise for what I did for my clients, have a look at the photo slide show I've made for them at below. I'm not posting photos this round as there are too many of them that I love! Thanks to the generosity of my client, Pik Yoke, she has been very kind to allow me to put this up here. So, do enjoy the rest of Chinese New Year with your loved ones people! Happy Chinese New Year to all of you. TQ~
UPDATE16 Oct 2010: We are experiencing some problem with the slideshow uploaded previously and I'm replacing them with photos. Sorry for the inconveniences caused.
