Who would you miss most before you get married? Probably your dear mother. This set of photos is unusual with normal engagement photos, because we have mother and daughter only.
When I knew Emily, I planned to do an engagement demo shoot, as for my practice. Yet unbelievably she did 4, 5 engagement sessions already! So she invited me to take something special.
“Could you take photos of my mother and I?”
“Yeah why not? I can try.”
“But what will the photos look like?”
“Um, you can consider it as a closer family portrait, or no-kissing wedding photo.”
End up I guess the photos matched the description above. Wedding photos are sweet, while family portraits are intimate, and mother-daughter portraits are sweet and intimate. I also saw the missing-daughter emotion, for her red eyes when we just started the shoot.
Marriage will not break the monther-daughter knot, so don’t be sad :’)

窗邊的性感造型也是我第二最愛！簡單的蕾絲，露台的窗口光，性感的大肚剪影，她是最美麗的準媽媽。哪麼第一最愛是什麼？就是晾衫造型啦！多謝Tracy set up這場景呢！沒有她也沒有這麼窩心的照片！待寶寶長大也要在同一個場景再拍啊！
First of all, thanks Sandy and Derek so much for trusting me, even though I did not have (any) experience. (I actually did once years ago…) When she found me, it was already her 32nd week, which means she had a big tummy already! She said if she could not find me, she might not take any pregnant photos. I am so lucky! So we just arranged the schedule as soon as possible.
Also thanks her for letting my makeup newbie artist friend Mini to join this shoot! Working with a good friend feels so relaxed. When I arrived her place, what I first noticed was a luggage full of props! Thanks Sandy’s sister for preparing that, also for taking care of Sandy. Tracy you really helped a lot!
Sandy is gorgeous. Having fully prepared, the shoot went so smooth. I like her idea of portrait in soccer team tee with hubby (she almost couldn’t fit in for her big tummy haha). This is a personal story and just simply sweet.
My 2nd favorite look is the sexy look by the window. Simple lace, window light and sexy tummy silhouette. She is a pretty mother-to-be. So what is my 1st favorite? Definitely the one they dried the baby clothes! Thanks Tracy for setting up this and she had excellent art direction. Without her the photos will not look that good. Let’s wait the baby boy grow up and we can go to take the same photos again!

This is one of the biggest party ever I had in my life. We had 15 babies all born in 5th May so this was a party with 15 families! Though I thought I worked fine with babies (at least I love to play with them), 15 babies at one time is still too much for me… Gladly I had my best assistant Ann to help me! (Thanks so much to her!!)
I imagined one scene would be all babies cried together… Luckily it did not happen. Most babies are happy. Some of them started to fall asleep after playing too hard. In conclusion, 1-year-old baby is not easy to ‘control’. You cannot control where they will climb/ walk to. I guess their 2nd birthday party will be even better more fun! Let’s see next year!

First when I know the banquet venue, I was kind of surprised because the restaurant was located in an industrial in Aberdeen. I almost missed this building while searching for it because this building was that typical Hong Kong style and you would never expect a restaurant for private dining inside.
Winnie and Will were so kind. They were actually married a year ago, but they never had any kind of party or banquet to introduce themselves to each others friends in Hong Kong. That’s why they were here now.
They prepared tea bags and self-made salts for every guests. I loved they actually made something as favors!
It was just a simple and intimate dinner to meet old friends. Nice restaurant, nice food, nice floral decoration and table setting. Just sweet 🙂
PS. I love their Korean engagement photos! And Winnie is so kind to let me feature it on B&B here.

Can’t believe my photos could be featured on Simply Peachy!
Since I get into wedding photography industry, I heard about them long ago. I heard the host left Hong Kong while I just knew them… maybe that’s why they never reply my email. Suddenly one day I got an email from them, not only answering my inquiry, but also asking my work for feature!!!

Truly thanks Maggie & Wesley for this engagement session. I will write another article about this shoot later. Stay tuned!
It had been almost a year since this shoot.
My first time to be an aunt, and also first time to shoot new-born baby. Thanks Bella’s mother, Connie for preparing so many outfits and props for the photo shoot!
Although Bella looks totally different now, she is still always adorable to me 🙂
