Children

Baby Emma

I like things raw and real, when they are in their most truthful state. It’s probably unusual to many when the unreal, the “photoshopped”, the “beautiful” are what the world is after generally. I see beauty in true honesty, transparency and originality.

Natural Poser

This is a recent shot from a dinner I was photographing. Most kids are natural posers. It’s interesting to see how a person’s self-confidence gets diminished as he/she grows up to be an adult. The most difficult people to photograph are people with no self-confidence. Beauty starts from the inside, not outside.

Superboy fears me…

I love this shot I took during an event a couple of days ago. It’s one of those moments which passes in seconds. I am contemplating whether I should shave my beard unless it grows white and I grow as fat (and adorable) as Santa. The recent tan I got from my beach holidays might have contributed to my “scary” look. Well, on the bright side, I think most kids and babies love me cause I have that love for them oozing out of me (I think… haha).

But kids are cute and adorable (on pictures) whether they are crying or laughing. The shot is not “perfect” with the maid standing behind but she does seem to be an authoritative figure standing and watching silently behind. In portrait photography, an expressive moment caught outlaws all compositional rules we were taught sometimes.

Enjoy life! Go catch that moment!

The unspeakable joy of a mother and her baby! No amount of words can express!

I have not been writing much as I have been quite reclusive. So sorry, everyone. I hope you’ll still stay with me through my journey in life, watching me grow as a person, as a photographer, as a teacher, and maybe as a friend as well. I thank all of you who has been motivating or correcting me through your comments both in facebook and in my blogs. I’ll do my best to share what I know as much as I can.

Happy Belated Mothers’ Day to ALL you mothers out there!!! You have the special calling which we men will never have. And you experience the unspeakable joy from pregnancy to breastfeeding and watching your baby grow which we fathers will always feel that missing link between us and our baby. I did try making my baby suck my nipple but that didn’t work! Hahaha……..

 

My Son . 121110

I have not been very faithful in posting a photo a day recently due to my busy schedule. I’ve been shooting lots. When I am busy, my poodles and my son miss me cause I am their playmate. Here’s a portrait of Jonah taken recently.
