The Mother-Daughter Knot 母女情意結

結婚前最不捨的是誰?想必是媽媽吧。這輯照片跟一般婚照有些不同,就只有媽媽和女兒。

相識Emily之時,本來只打算為她拍輯婚照,讓我練習一下吸收多點經驗。想不到她已經拍了4、5輯婚照了(笑)所以她邀請我拍特別的一輯。

「可以拍我和媽媽嗎?」
「當然沒問題啦,可以試一下。」
「但你猜這會是怎樣的照片?」
「你可以當成比較親密的家庭照,或是沒有嘴對嘴親吻的婚照吧(笑)」

我想結果照片出來還是挺吻合上述的形容吧!婚照是甜蜜的,家庭照是溫馨的,那麼母女照就是甜蜜又溫馨,當中還有些依依不捨的感覺。那種不捨感,是我從媽媽才剛開始拍照就眼紅而看出來的。

母女情意結不會因為女兒結婚而解開,不要難過吧。

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 :’)

First Maternity Session Ever 第一次拍大肚媽媽

首先,真是很感謝Sandy和Derek對我的信任。雖然知道我沒拍過大肚媽媽(真的要算只是很多年前幫朋友拍過一次),還是放心給我去拍。當她找到我時肚子已經很大了,已經32週,她說若不是找到我也未必會拍大肚相了,好幸運呢!當然就盡快約日子安排拍攝。

也多謝她讓我的化妝師菜鳥朋友Mini參與呀!跟朋友一起工作就很高興。上到她的家,第一眼看見的就是一大個行李箱的道具,還有她妹妹Tracy這萬能助手幫忙安排道具擺設,還有照顧Sandy。

Sandy本來就是美人胚子,加上造型和道具準備充足,拍攝真的很順利!喜歡她要求拍個球衣造型,因為她和老公都是球迷,希望可以穿球衣一起拍(她說差點穿不下了哈哈),喜歡這種個人化的故事。

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!

Big Baby Birthday Party 超級BB派對

這是我人生裡其中一個最大型的生日會。我們一共有15個5月5日生日的1歲BB,也就是這個生日會有15個家庭參與很多人啊!雖然我認為我跟BB們相處是可以的(最少我喜歡跟他們玩),但是一次來15個還是感到有點吃力,所以我找來了我的得力助手Ann來幫我!(超感謝她幫了我很多呢!)

曾經我幻想過一個情景是所有BB一起哭,因為一個哭起來很容易引起其他的一起哭吧,還好沒有發生(汗)只是有些可能玩得太累,到切蛋糕時間就睡著了。總括而言,1歲BB還是有點不能控制,你不知道他/ 她下一秒會爬去或走去甚麼地方。可能他們的2歲生日會會更有趣呢!看看明年又會怎樣。

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!

Intimate Banquet with Winnie & Will 溫馨工廈晚宴

起初剛知道晚宴的地址時,確實有點驚訝,因為餐廳位於香港仔的工廠大廈裡,那是典型普通的港式工廠大廈,讓我幾乎路過看不見入口。你永遠也猜不到裡面有這樣一個完全不同格調的西式私房菜。

Winnie和Will很友善。其實他們一年前已經結婚了,但他們從來沒有跟香港的朋友吃個飯或辦個派對慶祝這事,所以今次要好好介紹大家給朋友認識一下,順道跟老朋友聚一下舊。

他們更貼心地預備了茶包和自家製的鹽作為回禮小禮物,好喜歡他們這樣的心思!

這是一個簡單而溫馨的晚飯派對。有格調的餐廳、美酒佳餚、花藝裝飾和餐枱佈置。一切都很好 🙂

PS. 我好喜歡他們在韓國拍攝的婚紗照,多謝Winnie讓我在B&B介紹這輯照片。

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.

nikkiloveu on Simply Peachy!

好難相信我居然上左Simply Peachy呀!

自從我認識了婚攝業後,當然有聽過Simply Peachy的大名啦!不過剛剛認識她們時,就聽說網主撤出香港,大概因為這樣她們也從來沒回覆我的電郵。不過忽然間有一天,收到她們的電郵,不單單解答我的問題,更高興,超高興的時她想介紹我的作品呀!

這裡看介紹。

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!

這次的拍攝真心多謝Maggie和Wesley!下次我會另寫文章說說這次拍攝的由來,記得留意!

My niece, Baby Bella 1st month 我姪女Bella BB滿月啦!

這輯相已經好久好久了,好像已經一年了。

我第一次當姑姐(好像是大姑姐,淚,聽起來像大嬸)多謝心姐媽咪,我的二嫂這麼悉心預備海量的服裝和道具(這個也要多謝偉大的淘寶)

雖然心怡BB看起來已經完全不同了,但她永遠也一樣可愛 🙂

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 🙂
