Love from Australia | HK Maternity Photo with ChingChing

a city with two tales

Ching Ching is a flight attendant from Hong Kong while her husband is an engineer from Australia. Ever since they fell in love with each other, they have been working hard to make communication across different time zones between Hong Kong and Australia. It’s interesting to notice two clocks at their house.

Although they are now both in Hong Kong, they keep the two clocks as memories that they’ve worked it through the geographical difference. Phew! You two made it!

Preparation

Ching Ching and husband have been working hard to read through the books from taking care of the diets to educating child, going to the prenatal classes, saving up the newborn clothes and preparing for the baby room… I can imagine how much effort my parents have put in us throughout our growing journey! And that’s why we are capturing the photos so that Mirabel can look back how much her parents love her!

Growing love from Paris | Lifestyle Home Session

“La vie est une fleur dont l’amour est le miel,”
Victor Hugo
French poet

(Life is like a flower of which love is like honey.)

Growing love from Paris

With baby girl Fleur (meaning of Flower in French), we can feel the lingering love all over in this family under the magic of “honey” in Victor Hugo’s word.

Rooted the seed of love from Baby’s name

Although baby Fleur is from an Australian family, baby Fleur got a French name as her parents Gabby and Tony got engaged in France back then! They named their baby as a way to celebrate and remember their engagement in France. It’s like a living fairy tale!

Let’s get drowned in love of this love story…

Shared parenting activity: Read with kids

We have so much fun in reading and playing with Fleur! Gabby shared with us that she loves reading, so she’s delightful to read over the stories over and over!

So we moved on to cover her reading and her parents reading to her! What a sweet memory to look back in future!

Precious Family Time at Beach

We enjoyed a lovely morning in Repulse Bay for the shoot, at G&T’s favourite beach conveniently located with car parks, and some quality time to build around the “Eiffel Tower” – as G&T’s beautiful memories as engagement together!

I wish someone has taken pictures for me when I was a kid with my parents! So I know how much they love me ever since and then I would treasure the moment a lot.

Diving in the world of book is so much joy! Do you read with your baby? It means a lot when you engage with her/ him and explore the new world together.

That is to experience ups and downs, learning new things together, as a magical experience.

With the emergence of smartphones and tablets, we are using smart devices for reading more often and we are moving away from paper.

Forest-inspired 100th Day Birthday Party | Silas

 

“… to get the party well documented with beauty and elegance so that Silas can look back in the future.”
– Mum Bonnie

Silas 100th Birthday Party, Forest Theme

Welcoming the birth of a baby can be done by celebrating with families and relatives for a feast! We work with Hong Kong top party planner Sweet Soirees HK to put together the party on a forest-inspired theme inspired by the meaning of the baby’s name – Silas.

Baby boy’s name is Silas – meaning god of trees and forest. We decided on the theme “Forest” and it got worked out nicely.

Family Session – Subtle Love

He loves you in a subtle kind of way.
It’s not the kind of love you see in movies, with strong music and giant gestures.
It is still and deep, like water that you might mistake for shallow if you just watch the surface.
It is entirely his, and it would still be there no matter you care or not.

It is a subtle kind of love, of dad, but it is true.

Yes, I always thank my mum, but I actually do not miss the part for my dad.

When I take pictures for this family, dad was quiet, but he’s supportive in taking care of kids. The kind of love is never too exaggerating, instead, it’s almost invisible if you do not observe or think deeply. Actions always go before words.

Not only to thank mum, but also to thank you dad, my dad and dads in this beautiful world.

Thank you Dallas and Twig and Olive Photography to inspire us for the session and make this happen.

Enjoy the amazing time with your loved family 🙂
