I photographed Sahanna’s outdoor family portrait session for her 3rd birthday at a park near her home at TTDI near Mines Resort, Cheras. It was a beautiful and sunny morning and just like the weather, Sahanna had a bubbly personality and was full of energy. Choosing the photos for my blog was tough as there are so many wonderful shots of cute little Sahanna – she is certainly fun and full of expression.
Did you know that the name Sahanna means musical scale (ragam) in Carnatic music? I’m sure Sahanna will produce beautiful melodies when she grows up as she already loves music at this tender age. Thank you Mohan and KalaiSelvi for the opportunity to be able to capture your little angel, I had such a blast. Happy 5th Anniversary to you both!
This is the first time I’ve taken a portrait session with a Russian family, so I was pleased to have the opportunity to photograph them. We decided on a suitable location which was at KLCC park in Jalan Ampang, KL. The family members were accommodating and easy to work with, which always makes a photographer’s job that much easier.
Of course, kids being kids they were wanting to run around and play to their hearts content, resulting in some lovely photos of them and their personality. As you can see from the following photos, this is a beautiful family indeed.
Recently I had the opportunity to provide a family portrait session for a Korean family in Ampang, close to KL city centre. Cindy who was looking for a portrait photographer for her children, found me through a google search.
The portrait session began in their house with the girls wearing traditional Korean costumes before proceeding to a park in the nearby vicinity for some outdoor portraiture. We had the good fortune of favourable weather and decent natural lighting, resulting in quite a productive session overall.
This was my first photo session involving a Korean family and it was a constructive and rewarding experience. Whether it’s due to Korean genetics in general or Cindy’s family, I found them to be particularly photogenic. Also the children were lively, energetic and fully of personality resulting in a pleasing collection of photographs.
A big kamsamnida (thank you) to Cindy for commissioning me to photograph your lovely family.

I love taking family portrait sessions especially when its done in an outdoor environment such as a park or playground area. In addition to all of the benefits of natural lighting, I find that the surroundings are more relaxing and enjoyable for all involved in comparison to that of a conventional studio environment.
Recently I had the opportunity to take an outdoor family portrait shots of one of my best friends, Alicia who was on a holiday to Malaysia from Switzerland with her husband Cedric and their three beautiful and adorable kids.
It has been almost three years since I last met up her family and how time really does seem to fly past so very quickly. Meilyn, who is nine years old and Mikael who is now seven have grown so big in such a short time. It was the first time also that I had the opportunity to meet the new addition to the family, Shanlee who will be turning one on Merdeka Day (31st August).
It was such a joy to meet up with them again and to take these photos as they were so easy to photograph. After barely over an hour of the portrait session we already ended up with a ton of images. Here are some sneak preview images, more will be updated on my website in due course.

I recently had the opportunity to photograph Mohammed Jeish and his mom Jameela for an Family Portrait Photography Session in Putrajaya and Serdang. Initially we planned to have the shoot in the heart of KL but had to change the venue last minute due to massive jam. Luckily the traffic to Putrajaya was smooth and the shoot went on well without a hitch.
Jameela who is Assad’s sister saw my baby portrait photography session for Ariez and subsequently requested to book me for a portrait session. She flew all the way from Johor although she was 4 months pregnant. It was also unfortunate that her husband Shajath could not join us as he was away in Dubai for work at the time.
Jameela it was great meeting you and I had so much fun photographing Jeish who was filled with zest and vigour and a smile like a ray of sunshine. I hope I get the opportunity to also capture your little bundle of joy once you’ve delivered the baby. Good luck!

I had the opportunity to photography Arin’s children, Jared & Jaime at her apartment recently to coincide with the children’s school holiday period. We even had one of Jaime’s friend Gracie join us for the session. Here are just some of the images captured on the day.
A lot of parents don’t realise how important it is to capture beautiful images of their children, while they are still young and growing up. Without realising it kids would soon be teenagers in a blink of an eye and all those precious moments lost.
Arin – Thanks for being so hospitable and cooking up a storm for me ;o)
