Cherry Blossom Viewing

4th September 2019

Dear Chibi,

Can’t believe spring is officially here! P-chan can finally experience warmer weather :)

On Monday, Hubby and I took P-chan to Auburn Botanical Gardens to see the cherry blossoms. The Sydney Cherry Blossom Festival ended over a week ago which meant the busy crowds were mostly gone (thankfully). We attended 3 years ago, and the ticket prices have doubled since. I guess that’s what happens when events get too popular ^^”

We took a stroll around the gardens and managed to take some photos during the short time we were there. Our days are always planned around bub’s nap times and feeds. I think the photos turned out lovely :)

‘Just the 3 of us’

29th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

With Hubby’s camera in hand, we spent an afternoon at a nearby park for some family time outdoors. Hubby captured so many great shots it was hard to select just a few to share… I’m going to love looking back at these photos one day :) P-chan is the cutest little munchkin :3

Newborn Photoshoot

24th May 2019

Dear Chibi,

Today we received photos from our newborn photoshoot that was taken when P-chan was just 9 days old (or his 10th day if we calculate his birth date as day 1) It’s hard to believe it’s been 3 weeks since. He’s growing up so quickly, and a part of me just wants time to stop :) His tiny days are so precious and limited. I want to love and protect him forever.

It was our first time out since returning from the hospital, and we were surprised how much we needed to prep just to leave the house XD! Luckily, P-chan seems to enjoy the car ride, despite his face looking a bit frowny ^^; Cute, but I’m looking forward to when he starts to smile too, hehe.

P-chan was well behaved and slept through the entire photoshoot. Our photographer Tina was super gentle with him and made sure he was extremely comfortable. I love how the photos turned out! My heart is exploding from all the cuteness <3

Ah, too adorable.. I can’t decide on a favourite. Gotta get these printed out some day :3

Maternity Photoshoot

2nd April 2019

Dear Chibi,

Being pregnant is a beautiful thing.. and I want to cherish every moment of it. I can hardly remember what it feels like not to be pregnant, with this little one kicking about in my belly :).

With less than a month to go, Hubby and I spent an afternoon at the secluded ‘Secret Garden’, doing what could be our last photo shoot with ‘just the two of us’ :3

Thank you Hubby for these beautiful photos <3

An Afternoon Photo Shoot @Glebe

11th March 2018

Dear Chibi,

Ah, my favourite season is here~ not too hot and not too cold. Yesterday afternoon Hubby and I did a photo shoot session at Bicentennial Park in Glebe. There wasn’t too much at the park, but Hubby still managed to get lots of great shots. I love how they turned out even though they weren’t shot in raw (not sure how that happened).

The Secret Garden Photo Shoot

12th March 2017

Dear Chibi,
It’s been wet and gloomy the past 2 weeks, so it was quite refreshing to get some sunshine this weekend (I’m very pleased about the laundry XD) We didn’t have any special plans, so Hubby suggested we go for a little photo shoot session :) Hubby discovered this hidden gem which we’ve dubbed “The Secret Garden”. It feels so peaceful and secluded~

I love how the photos turned out. Hubby is such an amazing photographer <3

Final Fantasy Cosplay Photo shoot

19th April 2013

Dear Chibi,

Seven years ago, Kaz and I had our first cosplay experience at Sydney Animania, dressing up as Tifa Lockhart and Rinoa Heartilly from the Final Fantasy series. Back then, the only non-convention photos we took were amateur shots of each other in our backyard. While it’s kinda cute and not too bad (yay for baby fat), we felt like the photos could look a lot better. Ever since Jacky purchased his DSLR, we discussed the possibility of dressing up once again and it got us all excited :D

Over the last few months, we did all sorts of preparation and research, with Jacky fine tuning his photography skills and us making enhancements to the costume.

After several delays due to the wet weather, we finally found a nice sunny Sunday! We spent about 2 hours getting ready with the hair and make-up. We started the shoot at 3pm and had 2 hours since the Gardens closed at 5pm. There really wasn’t a whole lot of time, but we fit in as much as we could. Jia also came along to help out with the shoot (or more like..to observe his model girlfriend ;D)

I really like how some of the shots came out. This one is my personal favourite:

Rinoa Heartilly Cosplay

Aren’t the feathers pretty?? *_* Jia, Kaz and I threw them into the air ^^”

Without further delay, here are the photos:

I spent several late nights revamping the cosplay site. Please have a visit and let me know what you think :D

Special thanks to Jacky for making this all happen <3 The entire experience though fun, was very exhausting XD
