Our first family photoshoot

If you are friend with me in FB, you've probably seen this batch of outdoor shooting. If you're not, here's what we have taken 2 weeks ago =)

My initial planned date is 12th May (I din't aware it is Mother's Day that time), reason being is I want to wait til Aden is 1-year-old in order to take the photos. But the photographer is occupied and she is also busy for the following Sunday, I am left with either 27th April or end of May already. 

End up, we got to agree with 27th April (which is slightly too early) as end of May is quite late for me.

Best time for photo shooting is before 10am or in the evening (but hubby prefers morning), I did my best but by the time I am done with Aden and after breakfast, it was already 10+ when we reached the place. So you can imagine how hot it is!

老早就打算在一岁时来个外景家庭照(算是家庭写真集吧?)。个人比较喜欢外景多过studio式的,我觉得外景几时都比studio的来得自然!
而这次的拍摄我找了当时帮我拍孕照的同一个摄影师,Bayz Beh,有兴趣的可以去她的面书看看吧!
Bayz 提议可以去 Bukit Merah 拍摄,因为太平好像没什么特别的地方了~

由于老公做工关系所以我们只能选在星期日。虽然起得早不过摸到来都10点出头了!到了Bukit Merah已经是很热了,人潮也不少。加上快到Aden睡觉时间所以我们赶紧把照片拍完~
幸好的是车程才大概10分钟左右。。。

好啦,来看照片!=)

Alright, enough crapping, here's some photos I have picked to share with you~

1. Venue is at Bukit Merah Laketown park, it's a recreation park somewhere 10 minutes car ride from Taiping. The photographer is Bayz Beh, the same girl who shot my maternity photos last year ;)


2. It was a hot Sunday and quite a lot of people there. We try to make the photo shooting as quick as possible.


3. Since it was too hot, we decided to have the photo shooting under the shed, the drawback is photos might be slightly dark, so have to depends on the photographer's skills to edit the photos.
太热没办法在太阳底下太久所以唯有在树下拍照咯!可怜的小瓜一下就晒得脸红红流汗了。 


4. Will develop this into 8R-sized and frame it up. 


5. 这天小瓜不懂怎么了心情不大好。所以很多照片都拍不到他笑。。哎好可惜! 


6。原本打算在5月12号拍结果摄影师没空,在种种原因下唯有把日期提前,因为订得太急了所以我也没时间准备心目中想要的道具,也来不及瘦身 T_T
所以就马马虎虎的拿家里的玩具当道具咯!不过幸好还有时间DIY一些卡片.


7. Due to the sudden change of date and limited time frame, I have not enough time to prepare the props I initially wanted. Only managed to grab whatever at home and DIY a bit. I don't even have enough time to lost more weight.... >.< 


8. But at least in the end I managed to use all the props on Aden ;) Too many might cause the pictures to look not so natural already, according to the photographer. 


9. I chose white clothing for the 3 of us as white tends to match with outdoor shooting.
虽然白色会显得我比较胖不过到最后我还是穿全白,个人觉得白色很配外景耶,就像婚纱照的外景也大多以白色为主。 


10. Due to the hot weather and it was near to Aden's nap time, he started to become cranky, so there're only a few photos of him smiling, too bad....... 



 11。小瓜近这1-2月来就很喜欢无端端酱 'kek',家里每个人都摸不着头绪为什么。有时会kek到很用力,脸很红。。*晕*


12。His weight din't increase much since these 2 months, somewhere about 10kg now. But still feeling tired if carrying him for too long. 


13. 这张看到我好像怀孕4个月了哈哈!是角度问题啦,相信我!=) 


14. We might look relax in the photos but actually it's quite tough and tiring as we need to keep Aden entertained.... Haha. 


15. 这罐泡泡到今天都还没用完。。呵呵~ 


16. There's nothing up there, just wanna make some effects only, haha! 


17: Daddy OS: Aden 你怎么都不笑? 


18. Aden being stingy on his smiles. 


19. 摄影师要求老公单手抱起Aden不过老公怕他乱动跌下来所以还是用另一只手撑着~ 


20. Loves to show this pose now, I called it Iron Man hands, haha! 


21. Kiss kiss for our precious! 


22. The best position to pull daddy's hair xD 
小瓜到现在还是很爱拉我们的头发! 


23. See, told you he wasn't in a good mood. But I find this picture quite cute, teehee~ 


24. 有妈咪在所以才不哭~ 


25。很喜欢这张,如果小瓜是在笑着那就更完美! 


26。Aden: Am I cool?


27. Sunglasses and tie provided by the photographer. I did bought a tie for Aden but since this red polka dots tie looks better, we used it instead. 


28. Love this but daddy's shoes spoil the picture a little bit =_= 


29. 原本打算是我俩拿着框结果小瓜也用手来拿着,哈哈。这样的效果蛮好笑的~ 
Aden framed himself xD


30. Luckily managed to find a cake at a local cake shop a day before the photo shoot. I do not want anything too special/big, cause will only use it for photo shooting purpose. 


31. Aden: I am one now! (Idea inspired from an online source ^^) 


32. Started to get very cranky so have to use hand phone to calm him down, but that also lasted for a while only. 


33. 这蛋糕跟着我们几个小时了才派上用场。。 


34。小瓜会喂我们食物. 不过也是看心情啦,有时是自己吃下去了才空手喂我们 =_=' 


35. Nom nom nom~ 


36. Last but not least! Loves the outcome of the cream on our faces~  


Needless to say it was a tiring event, plus the hot weather all of us became sweaty and thirsty. But luckily the outcomes are nice, these photos are actually 80% near my expectation. I appreciate Bayz's effort as it wasn't easy shooting my uncooperative son. 
Am now waiting for the album to be done and add into my collection of memory!

Til then, I hope you enjoy watching the photos as much as I do! ^_*

虽然不容易不过其实我还挺满意的。我想这摄影都给了我们一家美好的回忆!=)

  5. 终于等到你的亲子写真集!!!
    在户外拍照很考验,尤其是艳阳下,Aden实在太有耐力。
    11那找张捕捉到Aden另一番可爱的表情,自然又有趣。25那张大爱,你和Aden的表情是perfect!!28那张景深的效果极棒,34那张充分展现出你们一家三口的温馨,36那张漂亮,Aden很配合你们,几乎每一张合照都会望镜头。
